My son calls himself the Pancake King. As a bachelor, he cooks what he likes. And what he likes... a lot, is pancakes. Unfortunately, he did not have the proper tools fit for king.
Using a standard frying pan that could only fit maybe two good-sized pancakes at a time, he had his work cut out for him. This was no way for a king to live, so we helped him out.
We gifted him with a Pre-seasoned Cast Iron Double Burner Reversible Grill/Griddle. That's a mouthful, isn't it? But it's the best thing since sliced bread! He's flipping 6-8 pancakes at a time.
Because the grill covers two burners, we were concerned about heat distribution, but this pre-seasoned grill distributes heat evenly. It cleans right up with mild soap and water. I think his life just got a whole lot easier.
If you're wondering what's meant by "pre-seasoned", let me break it down.
What is Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron?
How Do I Re-Season My Cast Iron Grill?
- Coat both sides of the grill with cooking oil. I used vegetable oil.
- Place in the oven at 375 degrees ( Use a cookie sheet on the rack below or cover the rack with aluminum foil to catch oil drips). Oil will drip, trust me!
- Bake for one hour. Remove from oven and let cool.
