Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill

I love my cast iron cookware.

If you take good care of them, cast iron can last forever.  Care can seem daunting but it really doesn't have to be.  You just want to make sure it is seasoned, and that it stays seasoned.

I just (today, coincidentally) found this TheKitchn link to a cool article I thought I'd point to, about using Flaxseed Oil to season your cast iron pans.

I love TheKitchn.  They're definitely one of my favourite epicurean sites, and I am always excited to read their newsletters.

Anyway, I read it, and it makes sense to me, such that I believe I will be doing this from now on.

But today I just wanted to mention how awesome it is to have a huge grill for when you want to cook up large amounts of something.

I'm not sure how this would fit an electric range, but for my gas range, it just fits perfectly over two of the burners.

It does mean that there is a little bit of a dead zone in the middle, between the two burners, but it is manageable.  In fact, I often use it to my advantage, moving things around on the grill to make sure nothing is getting too hot too quickly.

The other side (hence the appellation 'reversible') is a griddle, which is handy if I ever needed to cook a large amount of meat or veggies.

I love that both sides have troughs along the side wherein all the liquid ends up.  Making it not as messy an affair as you might think, to grill copious amounts of food.

Anyway, I was cooking up some french toast and it occurred to me that I don't think I'd ever mentioned this puppy on here, so here it is!

I love my Lodge Cast Iron Reversible Grill.
