A slight slope drains fat into a generous grease gutter, and the two loop-style handles provide safe transport.

    A good cast iron pan is a must have addition to any cooking arsenal. The Lodge LPGI3 Reversible Griddle fits the bill perfectly. It’s currently nestled on top of my two gas burners on my stove (see photo). My burners measure 17.5 inches across and the 20 inch griddle fits nicely on them. It has become my go to piece of cookware. It is large enough to sear several steaks at a time, giving them a beautiful flavorful crust. Eggs, pancakes, french toast, grilled cheese, bacon, stir fry, salmon, literally everything I have thrown at it has been cooked faster and with more flavor than a normal pan. I can heat the griddle as hot as I like, unlike teflon cookware which can damage the nonstick properties. The result is that food cooks much quicker than normal. Meats will develop that caramelized crust you often see in restaurants. In short, this griddle/pan can cook anything and everything with ease.

    As with any cast iron piece of cookware, seasoning is a must. Lodge claims that the griddle is already pre-seasoned, but the first time I tried cooking some sunny side up eggs I ended up with a burnt crusty omelet that stuck to the pan. Not good. Thus, I began my Google search for the best method to season a cast iron pan. After a few failed attempts, and a bit of sorting through conflicting methodologies, I found the best way. Season your pan as follows:

    Step 1

    Go buy a good organic flax seed oil at your local health foods store (Sprouts, Whole Foods etc.) Make sure it is pure flax seed oil. It should be in a refrigerated section, flax oil goes rancid quickly. The reason flax oil is used is because it is the only drying oil that is edible. This basically means that the fat content in the flax oil breaks down readily at high heat and forms a tough film that gives cast-iron its non-stick properties. You can Google “seasoning cast-iron with flax seed oil” for a more chemically detailed breakdown.

    Step 2

    Moderately squirt some oil on one side of the pan. Then take a paper towel and rub every nook and cranny on the pan. Try to spread the oil so that it forms a thin even layer. Also take care to not leave any puddles of oil on the pan. You want to soak up any excess oil so that if you were to turn it face down, no oil would drip down. It is extremely important that you DO NOT drown the pan in oil. Doing so will result in an uneven seasoning layer that will flake off or turn sticky. Repeat this procedure on the other side as well. Again, taking care not to use too much oil.

    Step 3

    Heat your oven to 400 degrees and no more. Stick your cast iron pan in and leave it for 1 hour. Again you want to make sure you do not go over 400 degrees because then the oil begins to smoke too quickly and the process of forming the hard coat is rushed. You may also want to open your windows and turn on the fan, the oil is essentially burning into smoke which may irritate your eyes and lungs. After an hour, turn off your stove and let the pan come to room temperature or cool enough to handle.

    Repeat steps 2-3 four or more times or until the desired coat is achieved. Each time you will notice the pan getting shinier and smoother. After I seasoned the pan several times I was able to cook pretty much anything with zero sticking. Eggs and hash browns were a breeze. The more you use your pan the better the coat becomes as well.

    Cleaning:

    Cleaning is very difficult if your pan is not seasoned as food will stick. I recommend you season your pan using the above method for easy cleaning. Most of the time, a little coarse salt, water, and a paper towel is all that is needed. I also purchased some plastic cast iron scrubbers from Lodge that work like a charm. For those who feel they need a more thorough cleaning, feel free to use a sponge with some soap. Scrub the food off and rinse thoroughly with water. Contrary to popular belief, a well-seasoned cast iron pan will NOT lose its coat with soap. Again most of the time I just scrub and rinse with water, I always preheat my pan before I cook which kills any bacteria on the pan anyway. Also, be sure to dry your pan as cast iron rusts readily.

    Overall, this pan is a large, heavy, wonderful cooking beast. Those looking for a light small pan look elsewhere. For those looking for a versatile, heavy duty cast iron pan that will last for decades, look no further.

    It’s cast iron, not some high-tech exotic alloy…Learn it, love it., December 11, 2015

    Here’s the deal….for those complaining about how it rusts, they need to take a moment to learn how to care for cast iron. There is no such thing as defective cast iron causing it to rust, only improper methods of cleaning and seasoning. ALL cast iron will rust if not properly handled so disregard those reviews. Also, those complaining about it not heating evenly there are two things to consider. First, two burners are going to be a little less efficient in getting it to temp than a central, dedicated griddle burner. We just got a new stove and compared to the old el’cheapo model, the difference in output is astonishing. The old stove would have taken way longer to get to temp considering the low output. Second, cast iron takes a while to come to temperature in areas not directly over flame. You have to give it time to distribute heat to those areas. I laughed when I saw a IR image of heat distribution and the belly aching about it. This person was using 2 burners and it was beyond obvious not enough time was given for proper heat dispersion…So they called it a bad product, I call it bad science. Warm it up slowly at first as to not crack it (if its super cold), gradually increasing the temperature over 10-20 minutes, yes that long. Both edges of mine are a good 6 inches away from the central burner and those areas were blazing hot. Enough to hash-mark the pork loin I cooked last night. Cooking was very even and consistent, you just have to give it time to stabilize. You could light one back burner on medium and I guarantee you that in a half hour, if you try to pick it up form the end furthest away form the heat source that you’ll be severely burned. That’s how cast iron works. Heat creeps through it over time and heat is retained for a very long time. If your cooking is uneven, you’re not giving it enough time to stabilize.

    So….don’t use soap when cleaning *unless* you plan to re-season it properly immediately afterwards. Use something that wont scratch and scrape it clean under warm running water while the griddle is still warm…Then place it back on the stove and reheat to remove all water. You could rub a thin film of oil on it too. We’re conditioned to scrub-scrub-scrub with dish soap, don’t do it. It’s a sterile cooking surface when brought to temp, don’t worry about “stuff” being left on. Get the bigger chunks off and that’s it. A little left over grease from what you were cooking makes it more resilient and how its supposed to be. When you bring it to temp, simply wipe with a dish rag to remove any accumulated grease from the last cook and go from there.

    Nice griddle. Compared to smaller Lodge Griddle, April 30, 2017

    I like most Lodge products I own. This is no exception. I have purchased most through Amazon given the competitive prices and vast selection. I don’t even consider other brands because I have always liked Lodge and have no reason to switch for now.

    I wanted a griddle to use on the grill for those particularly messy dishes for easy cleanup. I had a hard time deciding on which griddle to buy so I bought this one and ended up buying the smaller one from a local Big Box store with accumulated in store credit. Anyways, I had a hard time deciding and checked out Lodge’s website as they have detailed measurements in PDF form available. I couldn’t find any decent comparison pictures so I decided to add my own so others can make a decision to suit thei needs.

    Overall, I do like the griddle. There isn’t anything I would really want changed. The grease catch is nice. You do have to watch eggs though, so you don’t have egg run off. I use the Lodge silicone egg rings though, and they work well and you can fit a bunch on this product for easy cooking. Easy way to cook lots of bacon or making hot sandwiches or just about anything.

    Another thing to keep in mind is the lip on the griddle. It is fairly low, so I had some diced veggies jump right off so keep that in mind. It is not interchangeable with a skillet for some things but overall, it is a great product to have. I would recommend either size. Just depends what you are looking for. Cant decide? Get both. Only want one? I would get this one, the larger one as it is slightly more versatile given the slightly larger size.
