Flat-out phenomenal.

This flat-top griddle is quickly becoming a stovetop regular, and for a lot of reasons. First off, it’s built from trusty cast iron, which retains heat like nobody’s business. Then there’s the satin-smooth polished finish, which gets naturally nonstick over time with a little love, no chemical coatings needed. We love it for pancakes, bacon, and eggs—all the breakfast essentials, really—not to mention pizza and quesadillas. Oh, and plot twist: It doubles as a lid for Smithey’s 12-inch skillet, complete with pour spout covers (what a dynamo).

Fancy that skillet-lid combo? You can snag ‘em together here.
