Exactly what it should be
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 like this press...
I started using this press about a month ago. Anytime I cook chicken, bacon, sausage or other meat I use the press. It cooks things faster and they seem to lose more fat and brown well.

I treat this like a cast iron pan...wash without soap and dry well...no rust problems

Sur la Table Grill Press
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 hope this helps

Item rusts
I used this item only once to make paninis over my stove to. After rinsing one time in the sink, it rusted. No care instructions were provided with the product. Very disappointed.

Cast Iron Grill Press
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

These are wonderful. They press the food down without breaking it apart and help you to get those great sear marks every griller looks for.

Sur la Table branded products are as quality made as other premium labels but at an affordable price. The grill press itself works great and being made of cast iron, compliments the cooking flavors.
Simon B on Oct 22, 2015
Had one of these and a larger square one. These do better for bacon, so I needed 2 more so I could do 6 slices.

How much does this press weigh?

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
Griller n Smoker Rodney on Jul 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This press is about 2lbs.
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
How do you use this to prepare chicken al mattone? Can it go in the oven or is it stovetop?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2011
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
What is the weight of your grill press?
A shopper on Jul 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The grill press weighs about 3lbs.
Square or Rectangle?

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
A shopper on Feb 20, 2012
BEST ANSWER: Great on the grill or in the skillet, our heavy cast-iron press is an easy way to remove unwanted fat from burgers and sausages, prepare classic chicken al mattone, flatten bacon or create perfect panini. Raised grid pattern creates beautiful grill marks. Stay-cool hardwood handle. Hand wash. 8_"" x 4_"" x 3_"".This item is actually the smaller rectangular press shown in the pictures. The dimensions in the description for this item are correct
I purchased the Sur La Table® Cast-Iron Grill Press and wasn't provided any care instructions with the item or by the store clerk. After using it once, I rinsed it off in the sink. It started to rust and ruined a towel of mine. Do your cast iron items come with care instructions? If not, your store clerks should provide verbal instruction. What is the best way for me to remove the rust and care for this product? Also, can it be used over the stove or just for outdoor grilling?
Tim H on Feb 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Tim, I purchased the same Press and as it is cast iron, I care for it in the same manner I do my other cast iron cookware. So I wipe it down with paper towels, and if I do rinse it I dry it off immediately. This has worked quite well and my Press has no evidence of rust. If I were you I would remove the rust with slight abrasion, and apply olive or vegetable oil to re-season it.

Also, I am not a big outdoor griller and have only used my Press when cooking on the stove top. It is wonderful when cooking bacon on my LeCreuset skinny griddle (purchased at the same time). The bacon cooks more quickly and evenly, and grease splatters are minimized. Cast iron loves bacon grease - maybe that's why I don't have any rust on my Press!

BEST ANSWER: This press is made in China.
