There are many reasons as to why you should have at least 1 Cast Iron Grill Plate or Pan in your kitchen. It is a very useful tool to have and serves plenty of uses.
It is practically indestructible.
This type of grill plate belongs to the heavy-duty cooking equipment that will last you a lifetime if properly cared for. Cast iron seasoning is chemically linked to the metal, making it incredibly durable. However, acidic foods should be avoided while cooking with cast-iron, as any unseasoned patches on your skillet will possibly leach metallic qualities into your cuisine.
It is a trusty versatile tool.
Can be used for sautéing, pan-frying, searing, baking, braising, broiling, roasting, and more. Pro tip: The more seasoned your cast-iron skillet is, the more flavor it will impart to anything you’re cooking, from cornbread to chicken.
It is simple to clean.
Soap should never be used to clean cast ironware, unless you’re going to re-season them. Simply rinse in really hot water while scrubbing with a hard brush to clean. Boil water in it and let it stand for 10-15 minutes to loosen stuck-on food. Then rinse one again. Another thing to remember is to never let cast-iron drip dry; instead, towel-dry it right away to avoid rusting. You may also dry your cast-iron over low heat on the stove after patting it down with a clean towel. When food begins to adhere to your cast-iron skillet or the once-shiny black pan begins to become a dingy tint, it’s time to re-season it (which means the food may start sticking soon). Seasoning it means that you need to spread oil over the entire surface (inside and out) of the pan. This keeps your cast iron grill plate happy!
