This simple $25-dollar grill pan is equally as good or even better than many $100-200 alternatives. The thick cast iron base holds heat very well and distributes it evenly, making cooking very easy. It's pre-seasoned, and with some vegetable oil added before grilling, the cleaning is almost as easy as with the more expensive non-stick surface pans. See More
Although cast iron remains a superior material for grilling, it requires maintenance to stay clean and rust-free. It's best if you use some vegetable oil for cooking, wash and dry the pan right after use (as long as you give it a little time to cool off), and store it in a dry place. See More
You don't have to do much to keep this pan clean and shiny. It has three layers of non-stick coating (so that you don't have to worry about scratching it off) and after applying just a little bit of olive or vegetable oil, nothing sticks to the surface of the pan and it's very simple to clean after use. Additionally, it is completely dishwasher-safe. See More
Although the anodized aluminum pan is much easier to keep clean and rust-free, it's not as good as a cast iron one when it comes to cooking. It will take an extra couple of minutes to heat up, and the heat isn't distributed as evenly. If you're a foodie, you will likely notice that your meal doesn't taste as authentic as you would hope.
