Prior to this press, I owned the Lodge Logic version but it was lost in a move somewhere along the way. We replaced it with this one which I like much better. In terms of a press, I think they all work similarly. What I like about this one is the wooden handle. Yes, it does get warm but not nearly as not as the metal versions. I agree with the previous two reviewers - this is cast iron. If it gets washed with water, a layer of oil or fat needs to be applied or rust is inevitable
I bought this over a year ago. Had not used it much until recently. I LOVE how great Bacon comes out using this Grill Press. I can only cook a few pieces of bacon at a time, so I'm buying another one.
The bacon is flat and super crispy! So much better then baking in the oven, or just pan frying. I'm satisfifed, I never write reviews but the other review is awful. It's cast iron and water is not it's friend. You must promptly water and dry or it will rust, it's the nature of the beast.
The wood handle does get really hot so be aware. I still think it's better the a floppy wire handle (which would get hot as well).
I bought this last week and I thought it would be a great and less expenive option for a Grill Press. The price was right (1/2 the price of the William and Sanoma grill press). I used it last week and while it worked great, when I washed it , it started to rust immediately. I let it airdry, and it rusted more. Very disappointed
The picture shows a large, square press, but then 2 more pictures of a smaller, rectangular press...the description says 8x4x3...is this a larger square or smaller rectangle? If it is a small rectangle the large picture should be eliminated as it is very deceptive

The dimensions in the description for this item are correct
Trying to compare this press to the larger panini press which weighs ""about"" 3 lbs. I'm hoping this one is close. I'm sure it isn't due to the other being 9"" x 9"" and this one almost half the square inches
How do you use this to prepare chicken al mattone? Can it go in the oven or is it stovetop?

Best Answer:Making Chicken al Mattone on the grill with a grill press is simple. Take a butterfiled whole chicken and season/marinate as desired. Place your chicken skin side down on a grill preheated to medium low direct heat with the grill press on top. Allow your chicken to cook about 15 minutes, or until the skin is browned and crispy. Flip your bird to cook the other side, leaving grill press off this time. Cook your chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees (about 10 more minutes). Let it rest 10 minutes before serving.This grill press is reccomended for grill and stovetop use only
I accidentally inserted it in the dishwasher, what should I do
I bought the cast iron grill press and I started using it for steaks, then I accidentally washed it in the dishwasher. It started to rust, can I fix it
A shopper on Jan 25, 2014
Best Answer:Cast iron will rust when washed until it is properly seasoned between uses. Just oil it for storage after washing and then again before every use...after a while the oil permeates the cast iron and you won't have to do that. Rust is not toxic, don't worry
Try using equal parts vegetable oil and salt, and scrubbing the rust away with a paper towel. No need to wash it when you're done, as the salt/oil combo will act as a seasoning and help prevent future rusting
