Technique 11" Light Weight Cast Iron Grill Pan with Nonstick
Great grill pan!
I've been looking for a round cast iron grill pan that I could use on my glass topped range. When I first learned to cook, we always used cast iron skillets that were so heavy. This pan may be a little heavier than an aluminum pan, but those don't give the even heat of cast iron. Easy to clean. If it did become stained, I'd use a Mr. Clean Extra to clean it.
❤ Love this pan
Useded my new cast iron pan to grill asparagus , and they came out great. Easy to clean, easy to use as not heavy like the original cast iron. This is now my favorite pan for all my grilling!!!
great pan. so much lighter than my other cast iron. clean up is awesome.
Breaks down over time
I bought this pan in November and I also have the 10" everyday pan that I bought in June. Both pans have cracks at the site of the rivets and they both have cracks and scratches in the bottom even though I don't use metal utensils. Also the grips on the handles of the everyday pan are lose which means that if I pick up the pan with only one handle the pan will tilt and slip. I really wanted these to be my go-to pans but now they are going to the trash.
This pan is fantastically beautiful and QVC shipment is muuuuch much faster comparing past years!!!!!!!Great too.....I do not understand some writers....it is cast iron,so yes it is not super light,but still much lighter then the classy grandma pan,,,yes we do remember.Thank you very much.I will be waiting for different casseroles in matching colors from Technique-very well done job!!!!!!Congrats to you and me as a customer!
cast iron grill pan
I like the grill pan, but the video on this item is very misleading. The pan is not light wait, its very heavy. I am suppressed that QVC did not catch this. I am a chef and this pan is great for grilling, but its very heavy and difficult handle……………
I guess I am in the minority but this pan is not light weight.
It may be lighter than the "OLD" cast iron, but is is still very heavy.
I am a senior and have purchased many pan sets from QVC since 1987, but feel the
description "on air" was misleading regarding this skillet.
There is no way I could use this in my kitchen.
Finally used this last night after having it over a week. Cooked 2 ribeye steaks & they came out perfect. Also the cleanup was easy & there was no staining on the pan, which has been reported with others. Will probably order another one to use in our RV when we are traveling. Got rid of most of my Cook's Essentials cookware, & will probably start ordering more of the Technique. Happy Camper!!!
Cooks Great But Stains
Cooks burgers great, however does definitely stain and it is hard to clean. My pan is definitely stained permanently, but it does make a great burger.
Super Non-Stick Grill Pan
So glad I purchased this grill pan. I have many cast iron frying pans and grill pans in the old style because it conducts the heat so well, but......this pan works just as well if not better because clean up is a breeze unlike traditional cast iron. It is also very lightweight unlike traditional cast iron. The only suggestion I have is to make a bigger grill pan. I would buy that one also.
Right after I ordered the cast iron grill, I ordered an indoor grill so figured I'd be returning this as soon as it arrived. I decided to give it a try first and was absolutely delighted. It cooks food very evenly and clean up is amazingly easy. Cleaned up easier than they said on the show. Plus the color (blue) is beautiful. Very happy and will definitely keep it. Will be using this pan often.
A real dud for me!
Judging from the other reviews, many have found this pan to be a huge hit...not so for me. After the first use, grilling chicken, the pan was stained...significantly...with black and brown marks that would not come off with repeated soaking/washing (by hand). I then made salmon...there was not a problem with sticking, but with staining.,,even on the bottom. The final straw was bubbling of the non-stick on the upper sides. It is going back.
