Shop Cast Iron Grill Pans in Australia 

Cast iron grill pans and grill plates are popular among home cooks for many reasons. Cast iron cookware is known for its durability and ability to retain heat. A cast iron grill heats evenly across the surface, perfect for cooking grilled meats and vegetables. The ridges on the bottom of the pan create those classic grill marks on your food with only a fraction of the outdoor grilling time needed. These grill pans are built to last and withstand high temperatures without warping or cracking. They also require little maintenance beyond regular seasoning, making them a convenient option for busy cooks. Shop high-quality cast iron grill pans and cast iron griddles from the best cookware brands such as Le Creuset, Lodge Cast Iron, Staub, Chasseur and more. 

Cast Iron Grill Pan Types 

Raw Cast Iron Grill Pans

Raw cast iron grill pans are uncoated and require seasoning before use. These pans are most commonly used and loved by Australians who enjoy camping and the outdoors. These days, raw cast iron grills and griddles such as the Lodge Grill Pan come pre-seasoned, ready to use and can be used on high heat to enjoy the perfect seared meats and more. With proper care and maintenance, raw cast iron grill pans develop a natural non-stick surface over time and can be used on any heating source from gas to induction to campfire! 

Enamelled Cast Iron Grill Pans

Enamelled cast iron grill pans come with a smooth, non-reactive enamel coating on the exterior and cooking surface. This coating eliminates the need for seasoning and provides a convenient, easy clean surface, making them easier to maintain, as the enamel protects the cast iron from rusting. They also come in various colours, adding aesthetic appeal to your kitchen while offering the benefits of cast iron cooking. If you are looking for a cast iron grill pan that doesn't require seasoning, you cannot look past the French-made favourites with either a Le Creuset Grill Pan or Staub grill pan. The only downside to these types of pans is that due to their enamel coatings, it is best to only use a medium heat to avoid damaging or burning the enamel. 

Cast Iron Grill Pan Shapes

The most common shape for a cast iron grill plate is square or rectangular, which allows for even heat distribution and ample space for grilling multiple items simultaneously, making them the perfect cast iron bbq grill plate. We love the Le Creuset Signature Cast Iron Square Grillit, and the Staub American Square Grill, perfect for everything from grilling steaks to vegetables. Another popular shape is the round grill pan, which makes flipping food easier due to its curved edges. Perfect for making pancakes, eggs, and other breakfast foods on the stovetop. An oval-shaped cast iron grill pan offers versatility in cooking large cuts of meat or fish while still fitting on a standard stove burner. Its elongated shape also provides enough surface area for searing vegetables or fruits alongside your main dish.

Grill pan vs frying pan

A frying pan is versatile for general stovetop cooking, while a grill pan is specifically designed to replicate the charred and grilled effect of outdoor grilling. A frying pan features a flat surface for sautéing and frying, while the grill pan has raised ridges that create appetising grill marks and allow fats to drain away. While both pans have their uses, the grill pan is ideal for achieving indoor grilling flavours and textures, while a frypan is more versatile for various cooking techniques.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you clean a cast iron grill? 

Allow your cast iron grill to cool completely, then use a stiff brush or grill scraper to remove any food residue or debris from the grates, making sure to scrape both sides. For stubborn particles, create a paste using equal parts water and baking soda, apply it to the grates, and gently scrub. Rinse the grates thoroughly with water, avoiding the use of soap or harsh chemicals that can strip the seasoning. Dry the grates completely to prevent rusting, either by using a tea towel or placing them over low heat on the grill. Finally, apply a thin layer of vegetable oil or any high-smoke point oil to protect the grill and maintain its seasoning.

Do you need to put oil on a cast iron grill pan?

Yes, we recommend applying a thin layer of oil to your cast iron grill pan or cast iron griddle plate to protect it from rust and maintain its seasoning. The oil creates a barrier between the pan and moisture, preventing oxidation. Additionally, the oil helps to maintain the non-stick properties of the cast iron surface.
