The Lodge Cast Iron 10.5-inch square Grill Pan puts restaurant stripes on your grilled favorites like a pro. Helps with low fat cooking as the ribbed bottom pan lets you keep foods from simmering in fatty drippings. Cast-iron is a multi-functional cookware that works wonders with slow-cooking recipes and all your favorite foods. Cast iron loves a campfire, a stovetop, or an oven, and can slow-cook foods without scorching. It retains heat well so you can sear meat at higher temperatures and will keep your delicious meals warm for a long time. Whether used in a kitchen or camp, theses virtually indestructible cookware should last for generations. Made of cast iron, this cookware evenly distributes heat from the bottom through the sidewalls. Sporting a stylish black color, the cast iron grill pan looks good in most kitchens and it doubles up as an excellent source of nutritional iron. Cast Iron, like your grandmother used, still ranks as one of the best cooking utensils ever made. It gives you a nearly non-stick surface, without the possible harmful fumes generated by preheating chemically treated nonstick cookware. The American-based company, Lodge, has been fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century.
10.5 Inch Square Seasoned Cast Iron Grill Pan

To anyone who hasn’t owned a cast iron skillet, or has gotten rust on theirs: DO NOT ALLOW THIS TO STAY WET. I mean, no air drying, no soaking, no “let me loosen it up by letting the water sit a while as I do other things and forget about it.” You MUST dry this pan thoroughly, and then coat it with oil (make sure the pan is warm). Also, don’t use soap!! One of the best things about a cast iron skillet is the “seasoning” that forms. Soap eats away at it and then: 1. You have to go through the trouble of re-seasoning it the “long” way by baking the pan in high heat, and 2. Your food will probably taste soapy. This is how I care for mine, and I’ve never had any problems (e.g. rust, cracking, etc.). It’s the same advice I got when I bought my first cast iron skillet, mixed with internet research, and it’s the safest option to ensure its longevity:
• I let the pan cool down before washing it (sudden temperature changes aren’t good, especially cold water on a hot pan... this is called thermal shock and will lead to cracks/broken pans)
• I use a dedicated silicone sponge that I never use dish soap on to wash it in warm water. I also bought the Lodge grill pan scraper because it makes clean up much easier than getting into each groove individually
• I wipe the pan down with a paper towel
• I heat the grill pan on the stove on medium-low heat until the remaining water evaporates
• After the pan cools down a little (but while it’s still warm), I use a clean paper towel to rub oil ALL over it (it’s made of one piece of metal so you need to protect the entire thing, including the handle and reverse side)
• I put it back in the cabinet and make sure never to store a damp/wet pot or pan near it
Alternatively, you can use salt instead of washing it. I don’t use this method because it adds another thing I have to worry about buying and/or I’d use up my good salt, so I just find it easier to wash it. But some people swear by the salt method. You just pour salt into the pan right after cooking, allow it to soak up remaining food bits and oil, and then wipe it down and season with oil as described above while it’s still warm (or after you’ve reheated it).
• olive oil has a low smoke point, which means it’s ill-suited for use with grill pans. Use an oil with a higher smoke point instead (such as corn oil or grapeseed oil)
• don’t go above medium heat
• be careful when handling it, as it retains heat for a long time and heats very evenly, which means the handles are hot! I got the silicone handle cover AND silicone pinching mitts and with those, I feel safe handling the pan when it’s warm/hot, but otherwise I would avoid it because the pan is heavy (especially for a woman) so you have to hold it tight and you’ll probably drop it if you don’t protect yourself from the heat
• you can use metal utensils on it, but be careful not to scrape that precious seasoning off
• don’t cook overly acidic foods in it because the acid will eat through the seasoning (such as tomatoes)
• if your food is smoking too much, turn the heat down and/or reassess the type of cooking oil you’re using
• do a thorough cleaning and season the pan with oil every time you are done using it for a while. (If I’m cooking different meals over a day or two, I’ll sometimes just keep using it with only a wipe down, so you don’t have to clean it right away, but don’t let it sit too long and don’t use too much oil when seasoning it because eventually the oil can putrify. And never, ever leave it wet!)
If you follow these rules, this pan should last decades, and you’ll have a great seasoning on it whenever you cook. Do a little research on long-term care, such as when and how to remove and re-season the entire pan, and what type of oil you’ll like most, and you should love this pan.
I appreciate that compared to a regular cast iron pan, this one lets you really char the food without burning the entire surface. Works amazingly with vegetables and it makes good roasted red peppers as well.
Cleaning is a lot easier than I expected. I pour some boiling water on the grill then use a nylon brush to scrub everything off. You don't need to use much pressure. Then empty that and possibly give it another scrub with kosher salt and a little oil to get rid of some browning. Lastly, rinse everything out and dry it on a flame. Then season it once quickly.
The reviewers showing pictures of rusted pans, probably aren't familiar with cast iron. I like to soak my pans over night because I'm lazy but with cast iron, you can't be lazy. You must wash it while the pan is still warm and dry it immediately. I dry mine on the stove to make sure the pores are dry and then I season it on the stove top. I only do the 'in oven' season method every once in a while. I cook almost everyday so I don't have time to cook my cookware.
Great grill!! No complaints at all!!
