Seasoned and ready to use. The griddle of your dreams! Larger than the Grid Iron griddle this reversible two-burner griddle features a slight slope for a generous grease gutter. Cooking surface is 19 1/4 x 8 1/2The American-based company Lodge has been fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century. No other metal is as long-lasting and works as well for spreading and retaining heat evenly during cooking. Lodge’s Logic line of cookware comes factory pre-seasoned with the company’s vegetable oil formula, and is ready to use right out of the box.

This professional-size cast-iron grill/griddle combo from the Lodge Logic series measures 20 by 10-1/2 inches (with an actual cooking surface of 19-1/4 by 8-1/2 inches), serious enough to straddle either a campfire or two burners on your stovetop. The reversible feature of this crowd-pleasing cooker means you can use the smooth side for cooking flapjacks, eggs, and grilled cheese sandwiches, and the ridged grill side for hamburgers, steaks, and sausages. A slight slope drains fat into a generous grease gutter, and the two loop-style handles provide safe transport. After the meal is done, simply scrub the cast iron with a stiff brush and hot water, no soap, and dry immediately. Lodge covers the sturdy griddle with a lifetime limited warranty against defects. This pan is guaranteed to pass down from one generation to the next. –Ann Bieri

Don’t even THINK of trying another griddle I absolutely adore this griddle, and I use it almost every day.At first, I wasn’t sure that I wanted a cast iron griddle. They are HEAVY and not dishwasher safe . . . so I tried a few nonstick brands first –top dollar brands with high ratings.I hated them. The nonstick surface was inferior. On a reversible griddle, the underside became sticky and difficult to clean. The heat was distributed unevenly. One claimed to be dishwasher safe, yet when I put it in the dishwasher, some of the nonstick surface came off.I am extremely health conscious, and I use very little oil when I cook. Food often stuck to the “non-stick” surface — go figure.I wanted to find a great griddle that I could use for many things, including cooking like the chefs in Japanese Steak Houses — I dreamed of using a small dash of my favorite oil and flinging shrimp, chicken and veggies on the griddle like a pro. No, I didn’t think I could toss my tools in the air…

Does exactly what it should Goodness – I see two chief complaints posted here: First, some people say it’s heavy. Well, yes, it is. It’s over 200 square inches of iron, folks. The weight is clearly advertised, so I’m having a hard time understanding this complaint. The second complaint some have is uneven heating. Lodge could fix that – all they have to do is make it thicker – and much heavier, and even more people would be unhappy about the weight.Since the number of comments about the weight and the uneven heating seem about equal, I’d say Lodge did a great job of hitting a happy middle ground. Personally, I count on a little uneven heating, I’ll sear breakfast chops on one end over a high burner and flip eggs on the other over a lower burner – I’ve even been known to run mine on just one burner, cooking on one end and warming on the other. When I was a grill cook, that’s how I ran my grill, hotter at one end. You also have to allow for some “settle time” for cast iron – compared to aluminum, it’s…

Unstable on gas range With all the reviews raving about this griddle, I was quite excited about my purchase. I had planned on using this on my gas range over two burners for cooking pancakes and such. The dimensions of my burners seemed to be a great match for the size of the griddle, but it turned out to be unusable. I returned it.On many gas ranges this griddle will not lay flat, but will be tippy and unstable. The reason for this is the handle cutouts on the griddle. It is a little hard to explain so I have uploaded a video to illustrate.If it weren’t for the cutout handles, this griddle would be perfect and would work on a much larger set of stove top ranges. However, the current design limits its use for many potential users.Other than that, the quality appears good. I have several other Lodge products and have been happy with them.Update: I didn’t measure the dimensions between the inside edges of the handles before I…
