Don’t have a grill? Well, don’t let that spoil your summer. A heavy-duty cast-iron grill pan is the next best thing. This new two-sided version from Lodge has a grill on one side and a griddle on the other. You can sear steaks, chops, vegetables, and kebabs on the grill. And on the griddle, you can cook pancakes, toast sandwiches, even stir-fry. We especially like that this pan fits over a single burner—unlike similar larger pans, which occupy two burners. Plus, the pan is preseasoned and ready to use the moment you take it out of its box.
The pan sells for $39.95 at Lodgemfg.com.
