👤I already have a rectangle press, but I really wanted one that I could use in my round skillets, and that one doesn't work. I looked at all the possibilities for round ones. I chose this one because it is the right size and it comes pre-seasoned. When I use this press, I like to use it for things like hashbrowns. I cook chicken breasts that are frozen and breaded and I want to crisp them off after they come out of the oven, so I use it for that. I haven't even begun to think about what I will use it for. I know I will enjoy exploring the possibilities. The pre-seasoning is great because I have had no rust and I have washed it many times. I dry it right away when I wash it. The easiest way to wash it is with a brush, and I use soap on it. The seasoning is staying put. Which should happen when something is seasoned. Contrary to popular belief, soap shouldn't remove seasoning. I am very happy with the choice I made and I would do it again.
👤Even if it's thick cut bacon, this press won't press it in a 6.5 cast iron skillet. Any food that has a thickness of 1/3 inch can be pressed and cooked with this press. You can use it if you keep bacon from turning to mush. The press has a nice ridge. The ridges are not parallel to the handle. It is difficult to hold when lifting the press to drain grease. The prices of cast iron are ridiculous. If the pricing was not for the Pandemic, I wouldn't have considered this.
👤They trimmed the handle so that it covers the end of the handle supports and that makes it look nicer. When you lower the press over your food, the screws don't hold it securely, so it rotates. We added 3M 5200 caulking to the ends and the handle is no longer rotating as I use it. Sometimes it's more important to have something than it is to look at it. I'm happy that the rotation issue has been solved. Good quality!
👤I mostly use this press to smash burgers. If you heat it before you use it, it will give you nice grill marks.
👤It works perfectly when you fit a lodge 8” iron skillet. The handle is a little rough.
👤This is a nice one. Can't imagine it being used on burgers. It's great for making fried bologna. This one is easy to clean.
👤The press is large enough for small pans. It has a lot of heavy and flat foods. The use of flat head wood screws is the only complaint I have. There is a small gap between the flat head screws and the press. It's a small thing when cleaning. The first press I received was damaged, but had a flat head and pan head screw. I only wash it by hand.
👤Overall, very good quality. Good for use on grilled sandwiches.

The jim beam signature iron grill press makes it easier to cook thin meats and makes them cook faster and more evenly.
👤It has a nice weight and does the job. However. After washing, the groves on the back are hard to dry. When you try to dry it off, it stays in the corners. There is a lot of rust in those channels after a few days of use. The groves on the back of my house are a pain to dry off, but they are what keep the water in it. It's not a deal breaker as the surface rust is on the back of the car where it's not being used. It will be difficult to remove the rust when trying to reseason because the channels are so narrow.
👤I was surprised by the quality. Lodge cast iron is what I usually stick to. Between good reviews and a great price point, I decided to take a chance. I'm glad I did. It is large enough to handle most steaks, but not large enough to handle most steaks. My husband likes the Jim Beam logo. He said that it makes it a manly tool. That's right! The Jim Beam steam cover was also purchased by me. It's a great set.
👤I now know why I couldn't find one of these at a second hand store.
👤I'm a big fan of CI. I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this. I bought it at the store. Prepared and ready to go. I gave this to my guy because he asked for a few smaller things instead of a large gift. It's safe on the outdoor gas grill with the coil handle. The hamburgers will be great this summer. I will purchase another for myself if I didn't buy 2 at the price.
👤A lot of the others at the same price point looked cheap, but this is actually a quality piece of metal and iron. Don't forget to dry it before it's well seasoned or you'll be stuck trying to get the rust out from the grooves on top.
👤Excellent! It looks great and is perfect for its purpose. If I could cook as well as this works, I would knock them off the air. You need 1 of these if you own a flat top griddle. It makes all meals taste better.
👤It is very well made, but you have to watch for rust. Keep cooking oil in a container. I would buy it again.
👤I like this grill press the most because the handle is not wooden. It works well. I don't wash it with soap or water because it is cast iron and I let the grill cook everything off.
👤I love this press. The cast iron is heavy. I love the size of it and the quality of it. It works well in my cast iron frying pans, on the BBQ, and on the campsite fire pit. There is a I have heard other people complain that the top was getting rusty after washing. It's "Cast Iron" people. If you're going to get it wet, you have to sit it on an element and dry it out completely or it will rust. I give this purchase 5 stars.
After-sale service. They offer a lifetime warranty on their products. 100% satisfaction is their goal. They'd love to hear from you if you have any questions.

👤I wouldn't use it for a burger press. There is a If you make a hamburger patty by mashing it down, you're going to get a lot of water out of it and into the pan. You will have a dried out hockey puck instead of a moist hamburger patty. Do not press if you must use it on meat. It's too much work to get the slots dry. I wrap it in foil. When the foil is too old to wash or wipe off successfully, it gets thrown out and replaced. There is a This is the tool you need to make perfect grilled cheese sandwiches. I have been using foil wrapped brick for years and it is a huge improvement. If you make grilled cheese frequently, it is a great addition to the kitchen.
👤The first thing I cooked with the Cast Iron Grill Press was half a package of bacon. The bacon was crisp and delicious. If you want to start with bacon with a cold pan and a cold press, you should. This piece is made of solid wood and has a comfortable, easy to grip handle. I have no problem gripping it with my mitt. There is a Cleaning and maintenance of the grooves and holes is a negative. The best way to clean is with a short bristled dish or kitchen brush. Maintenance is not the only story. I keep a can of shortening for use in maintaining my cast iron and use a paper towel to wipe the thin layer on after cleaning. The best thing I have found so far is a soft bristled toothbrush, which can be used to apply shortening and remove excess. I have to clean the toothbrush. I am experimenting with a way to maintain the grill press. I like the results when using this press, as opposed to the usual solid press, so I don't mind some effort with maintenance. I have adapted to the routine of using, cleaning, and maintaining cast iron cookware. If you are not, cast iron cannot be put in the dishwasher, detergents or abrasives can strip the seasoning, and you cannot use a heat source to dry it. You must keep it clean with a light coat of oil/grease. It is understandable that not everyone wants to do this. That is inherent with cast iron.
👤I have used it twice in a short time. The first time was to toast rolls on the stove and the second was to cook salmon. The weight helps you get a thorough cook for the salmon and stops light items like rolls from not getting enough contact with the pan to cook. There is a It worked well, but cast iron is very hard to care for. There are small rust spots on it already, as you can see in the last four pictures. If you know how to care for cast iron, you should get yourself one. If you're like me, you're new at caring for it, this probably isn't a good product.
It is easy to use and clean; wash your hands with warm soapy water. It is possible to make cast iron for pressing out unwanted fats. Grill marks are produced by thick grooves. The handle is stay-cool for a safe grip. Cooks both sides of meat.
👤I was really looking forward to this. I got a bad impression when I opened the box. The packaging was slightly ripped and there was Rust on the side of it. As I opened the box, I saw this. I received it in the mail today. There is a gap between the handle and the iron and the screw on the same side is loose. The handle is not firm when you push it down. It looks like the cast iron is built well. I did not get a good item when I ordered it. I want to show the flaws in the photos. It seems to be a good cast iron. I am not looking forward to using it because of the issues that come out of the box.
👤I thought the handle was supposed to be stationary when I got the press. When I first picked it up, it swung and burned my arm. The manufacturer needs to work on this because I addedwashers to make the fit tight rather than returning it. Pictures of my arm were attached.
👤I don't really like it, but I should give it 5 stars. It does what it should and I like it a lot. The construction is the best I could find. There is a The handle doesn't get hot. The hole for the thermometer is a waste. I can't see people using it. It's a hole to let juices flow through and make a mess. I can't think of a situation where this hole would be valuable. There is a I'm not sure I like it, but it's not a big deal. Would prefer a flatter surface. There is a It's the right size, fits pans better than any of the rectangular ones I initially sought, and works really well without burning your hand. There is a I would buy it again if I lost it. It's the same thing. It's not a good thing It's not a good thing It's the same thing. Update is what it is. It's not a good thing It's not a good thing It's not a good thing The grid/grate on the bottom is more useful than first thought. If this were flat or smaller grids, the grease would run down onto the stove top when I took it out of the pan. This doesn't happen because of the ridges in the grate. There is a This is a big problem when reading other reviews. Not here. I was bumped from 4.5 to 4.0 stars. Plug the T hole and we'll have a full 5.0.
👤We used the brick for various cooking techniques before buying the iron press. We saw this press on a cooking show and thought it looked better and less Ghetto. This is the best grill press we have ever purchased. It was very well made and heavy duty. We use this for making sourdough bread sandwiches. The Press is less than 100 BU. The cast iron press is the best value we have tried. If we don't like press, we give it to someone else. I will buy for Christmas presents for this press, which is staying here.
The measures are 8.75" x 8.75" x 3.25" The best bacon can make it hard to cook evenly. The bacon is flattened by the Cast Iron Grill Press. The wooden handle is cool to the touch. It's ideal for bacon, ham, grilled sandwiches, hamburgers and quesadillas. Use as a steak weight. In a skillet on the stove top. Instructions for seasoning, cleaning and storage are included.
👤I've been a fan of cast iron pan for a long time but never owned a bacon press. What was I thinking? This unit is great. I seasoned it with a thin layer of FLAX seed oil because it had a few thin spots. The handle has been removed. For 90 minutes in the oven. Do it again. It's perfect. I can't believe it works for all meat. It reduces the amount of splatter. It fits all three of my standard No. 8 cast iron frying pans. The round pan has a round press. Sturdy construction. The press is heavy duty. Nice handle. Fast shipping. Highly recommended. It still works like a champ. After use, I wash it with hot water, scrub it up, and dry it on the stove. There is not a spot of rust. It's perfect in my standard No. 8 frying pans and my new Lodge square griddle pan. The people with rust do not follow basic cast iron care.
👤I like this press. It's light and nice. The wood handle is not hot. One thing caught me by surprise but shouldn't have. I own a cast iron frying pan. I pre-warm it. When I tried the press for the first time, I put it in the pan and pre-heated it. The burger was cooked on both sides. I let the other side cook for a minute, but it cut cooking time off. There is a I wasn't expecting that, but using the press eliminates spatter. I was considering getting a screen or splatter guard, but now I think I'll hold off on that. There is a The press can't be used for burgers. I haven't tried it with bacon yet, but I'm looking forward to it. I would buy it again.
👤See my pictures and instructional video on cast iron... I haven't used it yet, but I received it. If you treat cast iron well, it will treat you well. I am going to use the beacon press. When I got it, I didn't think it was right for me to use, until I made some adjustments. It had a finish coating on the iron. I decided to remove it and re-season it. It looks like cast iron. I built a new one from a dead branch because the handle wasn't strong enough. This is exactly what I wanted, and it is now very personal because of the easy custom work. I like the look of the cast iron. This will be a great piece of my cast iron cooking collection. You can watch my entire re-seasoning process on my channel. This is a good buy if you want to do your own personalization. The handle is easy to remove in order to season the oven. Rub more oil in after each use as you would with cast iron.
👤I've been using this for a while. It is strong. If the handle bothered me enough, it could be fixed with minimal effort. I left the handle on when I seasoned it in the oven and it came out looking a little old. I liked the look and was impressed that it was high quality and didn't fall apart or burn like cheap garbage. The seasoning should be built up and the coating should be removed. I don't ding the company for that because it's a fact of life. I would be angry if I received a rusty cast iron because the box got caught in a rainstorm. There is a It worked well for bacon. I warm the pan on the burner next to it and then prewarm this. There is a If you've never used a press, your cooking speed will decrease dramatically. It took me a long time to get used to it, but it's worth it. Imagine all the white fat parts of the bacon that are cooked to a golden state that surpasses the meat part. Fix the spinny handle problem. I don't have to.
The best way to cook bacon is to take control of the bacon on the pan or grill. With this specially crafted 3 lbs press the next bacon, steak or sandwich you cook will sear evenly, eliminating raw or overcooked sections. Sized to fit almost any area you cook in.

EATING: Are people coming over and want bacon that is consistent and delicious? The signature iron grill press from Bellemain is 8.25 inches in diameter and presses down on your favorite thin meats to make them cook faster and more evenly.
👤This is a good bacon press. I've wanted one for a long time and had to choose between a small rectangular one and a large round press. Every slice of bacon gets pressed because it fills my entire skillet. The bacon is cooked faster by the press. It would be great as a sandwich press or grill. It does get hot, and the handle is wooden, so it gets hot as well, so you need a hot pad to handle it, but that would be the same as with any of the other presses I looked at. I read the one star ratings to see the negative comments, and I have to say that anyone who puts a cast iron utensil in the dishwasher is a total idiot and should not be allowed to own good cookware.
👤Wow! I was impressed with the product before opening it. The quality of the product inside and the pride that the company has in their product are two things that the quality of packaging can tell you. The box was sturdy, well designed and had concise seasoning instructions printed on the side. As a collector and daily user of cast iron, I felt like a kid in a candy shop when I pulled theBellemain Cast Iron Bacon Press from its box. The press is 8 1/2 inches around and weighs in at 2 lbs 12oz. It felt like the press had been made for me. Evenly balanced, with a 1 inch dowel handle, secured with 1 inch screws. The press is very comfortable in your hand. You must be wondering, what more can this guy say, it's just a bacon press? The best is yet to come. When it comes to ironware, it is all about the casting. No matter what, this is a great looking press, with its well finished wooden handle, beautifully cast stars, scroll work, and those big bold words "Baccon Press", not to mention that gorgeous plump pig perfectly centered with its curly Q tail, none of that matters. Nope, doesn't matter at all. Warpage is the first thing you look for when buying cast iron, followed by large rough "pores" (indicating poor material quality, or bad casting), and there was nothing here. The casting is perfect! Now that you have finished season, you are good to go. What? You have never used cast iron before? Don't worry, look on the side of the box and follow the directions. A piece of cast iron will last forever if you are seasoned.
👤I had to use it immediately after I received it. It's great for cooking any type of meat. I would never have thought to use a round one instead of a square one, but it works so well in my cast iron skillets. If you're looking for a cast iron press, you'll love this one.
👤I have used my cast iron bacon press twice. My cast iron pan is included. It was used as a bacon press and a sausage press. In both instances, it worked well. The sausages would have been cooked differently without the press. The bacon was cooked more evenly. I was surprised that the press made a difference. There is a The press is made of cast iron. I expect it to last a long time. It's finished, no rough metal anywhere. It's the right size and weight for a C.I pan. The coating appears to be non-stick. If you have a room, it's attractive enough to keep out.

Extra large to take on the biggest cuts of meat. Their 9x5 inch meat press is big enough for king cuts of ribeye and T-bone steaks, and can sear two burgers at once. A kitchen appliance for healthy cooking. Their extra- heavy bbq weight presses grease and fat out of your food, eliminating calories for you and your family.
👤The press is only 4 x 8. The wooden handle is jammed. There are no screws holding it in, even though you can see the holes in the metal and wood. The wooden handle is too long to fit in a drawer. The press is warped. It rocks back and forth if I sit it on a flat surface. Poor quality control and craftsmanship.
👤Don't buy this! The press is heavy enough to do the job, but it is poorly made and not preseasoned. I did not use this because it gave me metal splinters. The press is so rough that I got two metal splinters in my fingers when I checked the bottom of the press. I wanted to try this one because it is larger than most. I'm going to stick to Lodge or another "Made in America" brand to be sure I'm getting the best quality.
👤It was made in China. Handles can't be removed easily in the oven.
👤At best, a pressing issue. Sorry, but a good day is a good pun. It would be great if you could get a heavy one and a lighter one in the same package. Some of the more delicate items are hard to squash. The question was asked, but it was a minor point.
👤We found a wood chip next to the handle when we opened the box. Each one comes wrapped individually. We almost sent the grill press back. My husband made a new handle to replace the one that was damaged, and I like it better. There is a The size of the press makes it great for hamburgers, as it nearly covers 3 slices of bacon. There is a If we bought again, we would know that there was a chance of a new handle.
👤Pre seasoned is what these say. If something is preseasoned, you don't need to clean it, as it needs to be seasoned again. When wiping with a wet cloth black particles came off. These are from China. The hold handles are not tight.
👤These grill weights are very good. They fit my cook top. I don't think we could have designed it better. The food is kept in contact with the griddle, but not so heavy that it flattens the food, unless you want that by adding more down force. There is a The 'rub' came from Amazon. Even though I've received hundreds of packages to this address, the first order was returned as undeliverable. The second order was late because we ordered them for our Memorial Day cookout. There is a The product is good, but Amazon doesn't like it.
👤The product is very sturdy. The bacon is pressed down on the griddle. The bacon tastes great and it makes it cool more evenly. I leave grease on there because they will rust. You have to season them the same way you would a griddle. I put them on a small towel. The wooden handles are nice and don't get hot, but where the cast iron and the handle meet it gets hot and I have ouched myself a few times. Everyone cooks in a griddle. I really like the product. Nice and heavy. Does what it is supposed to do.
Less time cooking. EATING: Are people coming over and want bacon that is consistent and delicious? The signature iron grill press from Bellemain is 8.25 inches in diameter and presses down on your favorite thin meats to make them cook faster and more evenly. The Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Grill Press has a Spiral Handle. A comfortable grip is provided by the Spiral Handle. The heat retention and heating is unparalleled. You can use it in the oven, on the stove, or over a campfire. It's great for induction cooktops. The item shape is rectangular.
👤I gave up bacon. I use both of them as door stops. They work better than anything else I've tried. They don't scratch the floor. They hold my door with ease when the crosswind picks up.
👤I hate bacon that Curls up when cooking so I bought this to do it. The hardware left the handle loose in all the reviews. I was prepared to buy replacement hardware at the store, but it was not needed. I think the problem people are having is that the nuts included do not go on smoothly, I think the hardware included works well and they should go on smoothly. Think of the nuts as lock nuts, they are corse threaded and do not go on smoothly, this is done to keep them secure and not subject to loosen over time. You will need a wrench or crescent to tighten them, it will take some effort and can be awkward, and you will need a good screwdriver that fills the slot since it will take some force to tighten them properly. There is a The bottom is not perfect, but it is a bit rough, and what you would expect of a cast iron product. The total weight was more than 2 lbs. Keeping the food down on the pan is a good way to ensure long life. You will need to keep it seasoned, but if you want to use it without first washing it, you will need to season it every so often. There is a This does the job I wanted it to do, it will last a lifetime, the handle keeps cool in my useage, and it performs as expected, even if you leave it on a high heat for a long time. Good for your needs.
👤The press is advertised as a way to keep bacon from curling. The size of the press is too small to cover strips of bacon, so I'm not sure it is the best use of it. I used it to press and grill Cuban sandwiches. I have a nice panini press which is used a lot, but it has elevated grill sections so doesn't press the whole sandwich down as is preferred when pressing a Cuban sandwich. The bread should be pressed down and grilled. I had been using heavy sauce pans on top of the sandwich in a skillet, but it was too unstable. This item takes care of that issue. It's easy to press down while heating because it sits on top. Since I love Cuban sandwiches and use it often, it will be the only thing I use it for. Many reviewers had problems attaching the handle to the press because of screws that protruded too far from the bottom. I did not have those issues, the handle was easy to attach and there was no screw heads. It seems sturdy. Reviewers cited rust. I will keep this wiped off so as to minimize the risk of rust developing, since I only used this twice. The press works as I had hoped. The handle didn't get too hot to hold at all and didn't need a pot holder. I'm happy I bought it.
Cast iron is suitable for careful use with non-stick pans and can be washed in warm soapy water. Heavy cast iron construction. Fats from grilling meats are pressed by weight. There is a raised ridge pattern on the bottom. The meatiest burgers have a 7” diameter.
👤Yes, it does its job. I have only used mine three times and it is already rusting. I was scared of putting this close to food. I cleaned with water and put it in a dry place so I don't know what's going on.
👤This item has a metal grip which gets very hot when used. Does an engineering degree tell you that this is bad design? I replaced the metal handle with a piece of wooden dowel from Home Depot after I used it for the first time. It has a small hole in the press plate that could be used for a temperature sensor. It doesn't burn my hand with use, but it seems dumb.
👤I initially had reservations about getting Chinese manufactured cast iron cookware due to the lead scandals, but after doing some research I found that the melting point of lead is well under that of iron, so it's not a problem for anyone. The grill press is a good size to work with my Lodge skillet, it leaves some fancy looking stripes on the food when cooking, and I've been able to make very flat grilled cheese sandwhiches with far easier clean up than any sandwhich press could hope to achieve. The screw securing the handle could be tightened. Overall, I am very pleased with this.
👤I was dismayed when the press rusted. I didn't know I was supposed to season it with oil first and never let water sit on it. The water should be wiped off immediately. It is easy to find directions for seasoning cast iron. I had to use a wire brush to get rid of any rust on my griddle press after soaking it in a solution of water and white vinegar for an hour. The grill press should not have rust issues for those who season it first.
👤I wish we had gotten a bigger one. This thing is great. The bacon is cooked more evenly. We use non-stick tin foil to cover the bottom of ours, so we don't have to clean it.
👤Poorly made. You would think that a simple cast iron press would be easy to use. The handle is made of cheap wood and painted over with a black paint that stains your palm. There is a The screws holding the wood handle in place are cheap. The kind you find in your computer case. A higher quality handle would use flush bolts and rod that connect from one side of the handle to the next.
👤A great tool for cooking. I bought the Charcoal Companion to use as a press to make paninis in my grill pan. I was excited to try the press because it was difficult to fit my small skillet. I decided to make a sandwich out of chicken. It would not make the ridges I wanted, but it did squash the panini. The grill press was not hot when it contacted the bread. I wanted to see if the ridged press would heat up on the induction cooktop. It did! I heated my ridged cast iron pan on one burner and put the grill press on the other. When I decided the temperature was right, I heated on my stove. I put the grill on top of the skillet. Viola! It was a perfect ridged panini. I did the same thing as I did the cast iron skillet, brush the grill press with oil before putting it on the burner. I buttered the outsides of my sandwich. I got an authentic panini. I don't use white or wheat bread. I slice my bread from my supermarke. I don't think regular sliced bread would hold up.
The length is 8 1/2 inches and the width is 4 1/2 inches. The weight of the Iron Grill is heavy. The stove top press is made of cast iron. These pit boss accessories are the must have grilling tools for the modern chef. Cooking times can be reduced by half. The grill press weight transfers heat evenly and is the best way to cook meat on a grill. The handles of the grill accessories are heat resistant.

The grill lines are bolder with the added weight. The press makes sure the main is cooked evenly. ARILL HEALTHIER: The Shop Square Grill Press keeps bacon from curling. You can use bacon to top a tortilla steamer or a fish grill.
👤I am glad I bought these for my boyfriend. The quality is top-notch for the price. They are easy to clean after grilling. The meat was well-cooked and had nice sear marks. You need a set of grill weights if you enjoy grilling.
👤What we needed for burger night.
👤These are not too heavy and not too light, they're just right. Excellent quality!
It's great for induction cooktops. The item shape is rectangular. Cooking time for thin meats and bacon can be halved from 8 to 4 minutes. Measures 8 3 x 4 4 and weighs 2 15 lbs. It is one of the best grill accessories and can be used for flattening bacon and squeezing fat from meats. Ready-to-use Seasoning 100% Non-GMO Flaxseed Oil does not contain PFOAs that can be harmful to your health. A heavy duty meat press is great for bacon beef burgers poultry flatbreads grilled sandwiches and more.
👤This is my first grill press. Many professional chefs recommend the use of a press to ensure that the meat gets cooked evenly, as I am in search of the perfect steak. I am happy with this press. The size is perfect for a Lodge Cast Iron pan. It has a lot of weight in order to get the job done. The handles can be removed for re-seasoning it in the oven, which is nice because you could put a new handle on it if it ever breaks. It is easy to maintain. It works well for items other than cooking meat. My daughter uses it to cook. The cheese gets melted before the tortilla gets burned. Did you ever notice that these are used in restaurant kitchens? I now know why. This product is made in Columbia and comes pre-seasoned. The press doesn't look like Chinese pot metal. It is wrapped in a cardboard sleeve with instructions and a warranty printed on it. It has a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. I would use caution with this in a small area. We have a Teflon coated skillet. If you're not careful, you could still scratch the surface if the edges are not sharp. I would appreciate a vote if you find the review and pics helpful. Thanks!
👤I always look at the negative reviews before buying. I was amazed at the negative reviews. I can't say if these people have a clue about how to manage cast iron. Thewrap indicated that they were seasoned and that they were intact. The bottom has a smooth surface which is nice to keep from sliding around on the food, but not so bad that it will be hard to clean. I put the bottom on the stove to dry after giving them a quick scrub. I don't think the seasoning is made from flax seed, so those wanting high heat capability may want to strip and then re-season with the oil. It should be obvious that the wood handles need to be removed first. The are held with two screws. A well-made CAST IRON product which will press paninis will keep your bacon flat. They should be cared for like any other piece of cast iron.
👤The cast iron for Victoria is gorgeous. This is not the last item I have. It is cast with clean detail and smooth unpitted surfaces. The bottom of the press is very easy to clean and has a waffle-like texture. If you want to place the press in the oven to re-season, you can remove the wooden handle with two screws. If you love cast iron cookware you will love this press. They make the best Tortilla presses. It is ready to use on arrival with just a wash, scrub and dry.
👤I don't like that it was cast iron and broke in the mail.
👤I like the device. If you frequently cook big breakfasts with lots of bacon, you should get two if you want to complain, as this device works best with about 3 strips at a time.
