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