Stovetop Grill Pans

Stovetop Griddles

Grill Pans & Griddles

If you dream of whipping up a weekend brunch or want to enjoy a steak dinner in the middle of the week, choose a cast iron griddle from our cookware collection at Williams Sonoma. A cast iron griddle is one of the most versatile items in your kitchen. It can help you cook a diner-style breakfast of eggs, bacon and pancakes or put crispy edges on grilled cheese. The same pan sears a steak, chars vegetables and warms tortillas for homemade tacos – all on the top of your stove or outdoor grill. Its secret is the cast iron surface that heats up evenly and maintains the cooking temperature for longer periods than aluminum and stainless-steel pans.

Indoor and Outdoor Cooking

Turn your stove into an indoor grill with a ridged grill pan that creates signature char marks on the outside of your proteins and vegetables. The ridges lift the meat so the fat drips away as it cooks. You can easily collect the fat and use it for a delicious way to cook French fries or onion rings prepared in a deep fryer. Cast iron holds up well under high temperatures, so you can also use it on an outdoor grill for making a campfire-style breakfast. Instead of cooking directly on the grill – and to simplify cleanup – use a grill pan to keep the grates of the grill clean.

Two for One Griddles and Grill Pans

A reversible griddle is a practical choice when space is at a premium in your kitchen. It’s also useful when you want to cook large quantities of food at the same time without keeping track of multiple pots and pans on the burners. These pans have a flat griddle surface on one side and a grill pan with ridges on the other. Another option is a side-by-side griddle and grill pan. Use the flat side for frying eggs and save the ridged side for steak or bacon. You can also use a combination pan to prepare a one-dish dinner with grilled chicken or fish on one side and charred vegetables, such as brussels sprouts or cauliflower, on the other.

Features for Flawless Cooking

Choose a griddle with a long handle if you like to shake and flip food while you cook it. The long handle picks up less heat than shorter handles that keep your hand closer to the pan. For added support, look for a griddle with a looped handle on the opposite side so you can stabilize the pan as you move it from the stove to a cooling trivet on the table. Select a pan with a press that you can place over sandwiches or meats to make pressed paninis and Cuban sandwiches or to give a steak the ideal sear.

Find the Right Fit

Select a square griddle to maximize the amount of cooking area you have, or go with a round pan with taller sides to stop ingredients from dripping over the edges. A round pan also works well instead of a copper skillet that you can use for browning meat before adding it to stew or for preparing omelets that may run over the side of a shallower pan. If you host weekend breakfasts with friends, pick up a rectangular griddle for cooking on two burners at the same time to reduce the amount of time it takes to cook a meal for a large group of people.

Upgrade your cooking with a cast iron griddle that conveniently fits on top of your stove’s burners. It’s the start of a hearty breakfast to fuel your body and the beginning of a nutritious dinner to share with your loved ones.
