4.0 out of 5 stars
Good! but requires work., 27 Dec. 2011
The Kitchen Craft Clearview Grill pan arrived on time as promised. This pan is sturdy enough to last you many years and feels really solid. This is my third cast iron pan which I decided to purchase as it was only £6.50 and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to add to my cast iron collection.
I would of given this pan 5 stars but due to the rough nature of the surface it required quiet a bit of work to smooth it off. After 1 or 2 hours sanding it manually with sand paper the finish was very smooth and ready for seasoning.
Season it with an oil or fat of your choice in the oven, however make sure it is set to a higher heat than the smoke point of the chosen oil or fat so it can polymerise, leaving that famous dark non-stick surface.
If you're a beginner with cast iron you may be put off by the amount of work required to use this product but that is also one of the responsibilities of owning such a pan. You will learn to love it and once you go cast iron you don't go back.
This pan will last you a life time with good care and will hold onto many memories.
