Product Description

Colour: Black

The Le Creuset Grillit® is available in a contemporary range of colours and features stylish, integral handles for easy and safe lifting. Excellent for lower fat cooking, the ribbed base gives characteristic grill lines and flavour and provides the strength and durability needed for the intense heat a grill produces. The Grillit® is all you need for searing, grilling and roasting.

Fired at temperatures of 840 degrees Celsius, the smooth enamel finish of Le Creuset cast iron is durable and hygienic. This means that everything you stew, braise or simmer in a Le Creuset piece will taste just as good as you intended. It also means your dishes will keep looking good from the hob to the oven and from the oven to the table.

Slate Cast Iron Range

Le Creuset pays homage to the origins of its Cast Iron cookware by introducing a new, contemporary colour, Slate. Using state-of-the-art enamelling techniques, Le Creuset have produced an enamelled finish with a tactile, “raw Cast Iron” look, but with all the benefits of an enamelled product. The neutral colour blends effortlessly with many of the existing colours in the Le Creuset range and is sure to appeal to those who desire stylish simplicity or a stripped-back, natural look. The Slate Cast Iron range includes, round, oval and shallow casseroles, the 26cm Square Grillit®, Rectangular Grill, 26cm Frying Pan and 20cm Omelette pan.

About Le Creuset

A lifetime spent crafting the finest cookware. Le Creuset has been making superb, award winning cookware since 1925 and the secret recipe of ingredients remains the same today. Each piece is made from a unique mould into which molten iron is poured from a large cauldron (called a creuset). This creates a unique piece, each with its own identity and style. The piece is then hand finished and subjected to strict quality checks. Finally the cast iron is enamelled at extremely high temperatures to create the vibrant lustre and hard finish which looks great in the home.

Cast Iron Satin Black Facts

Satin black enamel can be found on our omelette and frying pans, grills, Grillit®, woks and tagines.

Satin Black enamel has a smooth feel to it, but it is not as glossy or smooth as other lighter enamel finishes. It has been especially designed for higher “surface” temperature cooking – which is not the same as simply using a piece on a high heat. With cast iron, higher surface temperatures can be achieved by allowing any piece to heat through evenly on a medium setting.

Satin black enamel will keep its good looks and allow a ‘patina’ (a brownish black film) to build on its surface with continued use. A patina is the result of the oils used for cooking, as well as the natural oils and fats from foods, baking on to the hot surface. The patina should not be cleaned off as it enhances the cooking performance and the release of foods. It also allows reduced amounts of surface oiling.

With the higher surface temperatures achieved during frying, grilling and searing, some elements in the food i.e. sugars and enzymes, cause caramelisation to take place on the outside of the food, This not only aids the retention of moisture and flavour, but also produces the delicious sear lines on grilled meats or fish, or the slightly crusty exterior on a seared steak.

Care and Use

Before first use: remove all labels. Wash the pan in hot soapy water, rinse and dry thoroughly. Pans with enamelled cooking surfaces are now ready for use and require no further preparation. For detailed information on heat sources, how to cook with and get the best from your Le Creuset Cast Iron and how to care for your chosen product, please consult our comprehensive Care and Use Guide located inside the box.

The heat storing capacity of this grill amazes me. It takes a while to get up to the temperature, but you can feel with the hovering hand that once it does, the heat is evenly radiated. The product is fantastic as you would expect from this brand. The grilling is even on the entire surface, and with little to no smoke.
Easy to clean, dishwasher did the job without pre-soaking.
I was also pleasantly surprised to see that is more "roomy" than at first look. 4 large corn cobs fitted just right, and tasted delicious with that charcoal roast smell (Mmmmyummmy).

The product is on the heavy side, definitely not to be swung around like in the movies (pan action to the head) :) . Worth the price, no doubt about that.

Update after 18 months: it still looks great. I must admit that there is some (semi-)permanent residue in it that does not come off even after scrubbing or dishwasher. So, most often with sausages, it gets fairly smoky. It is still the main grill in the house and we bought a silicone sleeve for the handle as you tend to forget that has the same temperature as the rest of the grill. Still very good evenly distributed heat, but with the added taste of the grill (and smoke). I am keeping it at 5*.

Colour Name: Granite
My second foray into the Le Creuset cast iron range was this superb "Grillit" - or griddle-pan to the rest of us! At 26cm, it's big enough to cook one huge beef steak or several smaller items like chicken breasts. It's a good, sturdy pan with a lip on each side to help you pour off the fat and a good sized handle and a helper-handle to facilitate lifting it. As with all cast iron kitchenware, it's VERY heavy, so not something to consider buying unless you know you can cope with the weight. It holds the heat fantastically and takes no time at all to heat up. The secret to cooking a good steak is to thow it into a very hot pan - this grillit makes that very easy as it only really gets very hot - it's not so good at subtle, low temperatures, but then you don't need them in a griddle pan. The granite colouring is very stylish and inside is coated in some form of enamel which helps to stop things sticking. Cleaning it is a breeze - you just take it off of the heat, let it cool for 10 minutes, pour in some water and let it cool completely. Once it's cool you can clean it easily with a brush or just pop it in the dishwasher. Simple! I'm still amazed by the amount of fat which pours out of almost everything I cook using this - it's certainly an eye opener and makes for much healthier cooking.

This pan is great, in my experience the heat is delivered reasonably equally across the surface and once up to heat it really does do a great job of cooking your food.
My only gripe is the metal handle, although needed because it's obviously a very very heavy pan I'd have prefered some heat insulation on the handle. But that's my only gripe, I'm otherwise happy, and once you get out of the habit of moving that pan without a glove on you'll be fine.

Colour Name: Graded Blue
I was given one of these as a present and it has rapidly become a kitchen essential. I use it for all meat cooking, reserving my frying pan for delicate fish, rissotto and stir fry (I really should get a wok!). It is also great for grilling vegetables.

As with the entire Le Creuset cast iron range, it is seriously heavy and you will find yourself using the lifting tab that is opposite the handle. But that heaviness delivers consistent heat and you can rely on the entire cooking surface being an even temperature.

The interior is black enamel with ridges to give the char lines that are essential on a tuna steak. Fat will collect in the bottom and with very fatty foods, like sausages, you might need to pour away some fat part-way through the cooking. The lips on either side make this very easy.

Less fatty food will stick to the ridges slightly and if you are used to cleaning a non-stick fry pan by running it under the tap, wiping it with a sponge once and then drying, you need to be ready for a bit more work - both to get bits off the ridges and to pry stuff out of the troughs.

But it is pretty simple - leave it to soak in warm soapy water for 15 minutes then scrub lightly with a pot brush and everything will lift off. It is also dishwasher safe, but I never put pans (or knives) in the dishwasher whatever the manufacturer says, so I can't vouch for that.

If my house burned down and I had to restock my kithen from scratch, this would be one of the cookware essentials near the top of the list - it makes for low-fat cooking of fatty foods without the hassle of using a grill, sears beautifully and looks great left on the hob, with a great range of colours to choose from.

One final tip - shop around. There is always someone somewhere running a special offer on Le Creuset.

Five stars.

What a great item. We all know the quality of le creuset cook ware, but this is the icing on the cake. All good cooks and bad ones who are knowledgable about cooking know that the key to a good griddle pan is one which can hold the heat. Being made from cast iron and weighing and absolute tonne (not actually) this pan retains heat like no other. I use mine all the time for steak, lamb, chicken and even cod and other fillets of fish and get great results, even though I'm a novice in the kitchen. So match the colour to the colour of your other pans and purchase, you definately will not be disappointed!
