Cooktop Griddles & Grill Pans Buying Guide

Refine By

A griddle and a grill pan are one of the same, except for the interior bottom. A griddle is flat while a grill pan is ribbed, giving the foods you cook the appearance you get from cooking on an outdoor grill. These pans have low edges, making it easy to capture the grease that cooks off. Some pans include a small drainage spout on the edge so you can easily dispose of the grease or other food particles.

Types of Cooktop Griddles & Grill Pans

In the scheme of necessary cookware items, cooktop griddles and grill pans may not top the list, but they're certainly nice to have. With a perfectly flat surface, a griddle is great for cooking breakfast foods such as pancakes and French toast, while a grill pan's ridges create a just-right surface for cooking steaks, burgers, and more.

Grill Pans

A grill pan is specially designed with a ribbed bottom and low sides, allowing the foods to sit above the fat that cooks off for lower-fat results. It also gives appealing grill marks.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Many cookware manufacturers offer a griddle and grill pan in their lineup. If you are happy with the performance of your cookware, consider purchasing these pans from the same manufacturer. Because this pan should provide even heat, be sure to purchase one made of a material that is a good heat conductor, is sturdy, and has a comfortable, easy-to-grip handle.

Size

Both griddle and grill pans are available in single- and double-burner sizes. If you only have room to store one size of pan, opt for the larger size, as it offers flexibility. You can choose to use one burner and heat half of the pan for smaller batches. Or you can adjust the burners to cook different foods at different temperatures on the same pan.

Shape

Single-burner griddle and grill pans come in square and round shapes. A square pan works perfectly on a gas stovetop with square grates over the burner, while a round pan works well on a round electric burner.

Material

Cast iron, enamel-coated cast iron, and heavy-gauge aluminum are common materials for griddles and grill pans. Some cast-iron pans require seasoning while others do not. Before using, be sure to read the use and care instructions.

Stovetop-to-Oven

Because it is difficult to cook thick cuts of meat or poultry on a grill pan, choose a pan that can go from the stovetop to the oven. This will allow you to sear meat for a good crust and then finish it to perfection in a hot oven.

Dual-Purpose

Some pans offer a reversible feature -- a flat griddle surface on one side and a ribbed grill surface on the other. Because it is difficult to get the grill side perfectly clean, this can cause any residue to burn off and smoke when the grill side touching the heated surface.
