Do not like.

I really wanted to love this pan; I have been using cast iron for decades and love it, however the only thing I've held on to is the highest-quality non-stick double burner griddle because it's just so easy for making pancakes, meals for two, and so on. I was HOPING this pan would replace it, however so far all it has been is frustrating. The surface area is a lot smaller than I was thinking. The description says 16-3/4" x 9-1/2", however the cooking area is actually about 16" x 9" ... MINUS the two corners that are cut out, as well as the engraved LODGE logo near one corner. It's very difficult to move it around while in use ... there's just nothing to grip on to safely. The "walls" are only about 1/4" tall, if that, so food spills out easily. In my former, high-quality non-stick double burner griddle I could easily cook eight 4" pancakes at the same time. This morning I just tried using this cast iron double burner griddle to make pancakes - I knew it would not fit 8, so I tried six. Mistake. Both batter and oil spilled over. Not a ton of it spilled, but NONE should have spilled. I could only successfully do 2 pancakes at a time, and made them a bit bigger than what I usually do. In general: just frustrating. It will definitely take some tweaking and getting used to. It's not useless ... it's just not nearly as efficient as what I am used to. I'm hoping I can use this pan while camping - either on the fire, or on the grill. That would redeem it a little in my mind. I'd love to hear what others are cooking in it ... how others are using it successfully; maybe that would give me a few more ideas.

I love this griddle! It fits perfectly over two burners on my gas stove. I should have ordered one years ago! I would highly recommend
