weber plancha

NDGNDG Posts: 1,552
anybody have the weber plancha?  I have been looking for some cast iron griddle for awhile, and this one got the best review from Cooks Illustrated.  I am a little timid by the small "hole" to move grease down to a drip pan - would this hurt the ability to sear a burger by losing critical fat? makes me think of a freakin foreman grill?  Think I am going with it anyway, but here is the link and please let me know if anyone is familiar with this product or other comparable models, thanks.

  • IMHO I'd rather buy a craycort grill with the grill/griddle attachment

    i have a cast iron grate already so just need a flat griddle with larger surface area than my lodge skillet has now - plus i like the plancha walls for easy scoop removal (think peppers/onions for fajitas, etc)

    What size Egg do you have? Description say it is 14" x 14" which means it should be almost almost 20" across diagonally.

  • This is what I use for a cast iron skillet on my large. It works great for searing meat, roasting veggies, and baking bread. Lodge Jumbo Chef's Platter:

    What about this?

    I've seen folks use it on a kettle grill and they liked it.

    Cook's Illustrated recs for bbq should be taken with a pinch of salt - they do many things well but bbq is not their forte.

    You won't get better searing than on a cast iron skillet/griddle. Lodge makes them, or you can fine other brands pretty cheap.
