How to use the grill pan

Surely, you have wondered at some point what the grill pan is used for. This type of utensil is capable of giving your recipes a flavor very similar to outdoor grills.

They differ from traditional pans due to the raised and curved lines on the surface where the food is placed for cooking.

The best grill pan is usually one that is made of materials that can retain heat much better, such as a cast iron grill pan or a stainless steel grill pan.

There are also models that are designed for specific cooking methods, such as the induction grill pan.
These types of kitchen utensils can come in various shapes: round or square grill pans. The latter allows you to take advantage of a larger cooking surface when preparing meat or vegetables.

Before you start cooking, we recommend preheating the pan over medium-low heat for about 5 minutes. Then, place the food on the pan and cover it. Move and flip the food to ensure even cooking.

What is the difference between a grill pan and a griddle?

The main difference between these two cooking tools lies in the type of surface. Griddles are completely flat, while grill pans have shapes and ridges.

The purpose of the ridged surface is to properly separate the liquids from the food during cooking, preventing them from boiling instead of searing.
