Grilling is a blast—but for many people, cooking outside is limited to the few months when the weather cooperates. Even if you’re stuck inside, the proper pan makes it possible to serve up great burgers, steaks, chicken and anything else you’re accustomed to throwing on the grill. Craving perfect pancakes or expertly shaped omelets? When it comes to stovetop cooking, a griddle pan is a versatile solution for everything from hearty breakfasts to delicious dinners (and you don’t have to worry about getting rained on).
If it’s breakfast time for the whole family, a rectangular griddle pan has enough space to accommodate plenty of pancakes! The smooth nonstick surface makes both cooking and cleanup a snap—no need to deal with stubborn stuck-on food. Making meals for one or two? A square pan is just the thing. There are probably hundreds of ways to prepare eggs, and you only need one round nonstick pan to have them all covered. Burger time? Get a pan with raised grilling ridges to help drain grease for healthier results—and to leave those classic seared grill-marks in the meat. If you’re making multiple things at once, opt for a double burner, which provides easy access to both surfaces.
Looking for a griddle pan to fit all your stovetop grilling needs? Calphalon offers pans designed to make juicy burgers, delectable brunches, and anything else you can dream up.
