I love using it to cook while out on the grill (fish works really well with this pan on the grill). I also really like the wooden serving tray underneath, it is perfect for a stylish way to present food on the table and as a trivet.

More than enough time for the cats to vomit on it, which gave me the opportunity to see what soap does to this (nothing) and if a quick-cheat reseason can be done (it can.) After washing by hand, then towel-drying, I soaked it down with safflower oil on a paper towel, and put it on a glass top range on medium to slowly heat it for about a minute, so I could then turn up the heat and play with it. In less than a minute it was smoking the safflower oil (450f+ I've read?) As far as I'm concerned, this means it's done. I scrambled some eggs on it, on a Fagor 1300w portable induction plate, on 4 of 6; after about a minute it melted butter; I cooked the eggs on 5 but could have probably gotten away with 4 -- I generally like to cook on 11, which apparently you're not supposed to do even on non-cast-iron, so this was new to me. Also new: while the cooking surface mirrored the induction coils, I put microwaved sausage patties on the sides as I was going to use the platter as a platter -- and it was clear the patties were cooking well outside the induction coil area. This has never been the case with all my induction-ready cookware, mostly stainless with an aluminum core; nothing will cook outside the coil ring area. So somehow this cast iron is far better at conducting heat than stainless sandwiched aluminum. I'll be happy to demonstrate for anyone who wants to drop by; tomorrow night I'm serving cat. According to a poll, the best guess was that the wooden tray included is bonded Philippine Mahogany -- it feels like balsa wood, and mine has a big knot just waiting to fall out of its thin layer. Turns out, a quick internet search will show some pretty good deals on mango and cocobolo, so when mine arrives and I rout it, I'll use the Lodge tray as kindling.

Most of my cast iron pans and grills are large enough to make meals for a family of five. Now that it is just the two of us, I have been looking for a smaller grill pan that will work for our needs. This is the one that I will be using on an almost daily basis. The size is on the smaller end but it is perfect for two strip steaks or filet mignon. It works perfect for two burgers, chops or chicken breasts. I like it for serving fajitas in a family-style where my husband and I pull our food from the same plate. If you prefer larger portions, getting a second platter might work best for you. I also like the wooden serving platter. After grilling outside or on the stove top, I can put the grill pan on the platter and serve directly from there rather than have to move the food to a serving platter – making it colder and having another plate to clean. The cast iron is seasoned when it arrives but be sure to treat it the way all cast iron should be treated. Don't immerse it in cold water until it has cooled. Don't use soap to clean(I use a metal chain cleaner with water.) Season with proper oil after each use.

I’ve used other wire racks and cages on the grill before, but not a cast iron pan. I am pleasantly surprised with the results and intend to use it quite often to grill up food that I previously could not. On my gas grill, I put this pan directly over medium heat. It was astoundingly hot in just a couple of minutes. I cooked pork chops on it as a test (I realize I can cook them directly on the grill) and those chops sizzled very loud when I put them on the pan. They cooked quickly and stuck to the pan very little. I did prep the pan with a small amount of olive oil before cooking, as the instructions indicated. The chops were delicious, and clean up was a breeze. A bit of warm water and soap took care of the residue from the pork, and an olive oil rub on the pan kept it looking nice and new. The wood serving platter is a nice and necessary touch. Removing the pan from the grill is a bit of trick, and is the only reason I’m going to rate the pan to 4 stars instead of 5. If I had super high heat gloves, taking the pan off the grill might have been easier. As it was, I used a spatula to lift one side high enough to grab it with an oven mitt. The pan was hot enough to be quite unpleasant through the mitt! However, thanks to woods poor heat conductivity, the wood serving platter with the pan on it was easily managed. I will definitely consider getting a larger version or just another for more grilling fun!

The cast iron platter measures just under 12-inches long and 8-inches wide, and stands about an inch high. This platter is just great for the grill for cooking things like seafood and other delicate items that would normally fall through the grates. Once cooked, the platter rests neatly on it's own wooden server. Overall, this platter set is a great addition to any grill collection you may have. Very pleased and highly recommended.
