It’s finally starting to get warm, which can only mean one thing: Grilling season is officially around the corner! If you don’t have an outdoor space to fire up the barbecue, don’t worry — all you need is Le Creuset’s skinny grill pan, which lets you recreate backyard favorites indoors. Whether you’re craving grilled burgers, shish kebabs, corn, or portobello mushrooms, this pan is up for the job. Best of all, right now you can snag it for just $99.95 (normally $185) at Williams Sonoma.
When we wrote about Le Creuset’s skinny grill pan last spring, Kitchn readers went wild for it. And this year, we can see it being an absolute must-have again. For starters, the pan is constructed using Le Creuset’s famed quality cast iron (yes, the same material they use for their Dutch ovens) that heats evenly and quickly, so there’s no hassle of looking for the “hot side” of the grill. And just like Le Creuset’s other cast iron cookware, you can use the grill on the stovetop or in the oven, so you can finish a steak in the broiler after giving it a good sear on the stove.
Another major pro? The grill pan has extra-high, deep ridges that deliver those covetable grill marks just as well as an outdoor grill. The high ridges also allow oil and fat to drip off of ingredients, so it’s a great way to prepare lighter meals like grilled veggies, whole fish, and marinated tofu. And since the pan is truly nonstick, you never have to worry about your delicate scallops or prime steak getting stuck or ruined.
Let’s talk size: The grill is just 15″ long and 8.5″ wide, so it’ll fit on most stoves and easily slide into your cabinet without taking up much room. Plus, it’s available in 10 beautiful jewel-tone colors, which means you can confidently show it off on your tabletop. And once you’re done, the grill’s enameled, non-reactive interior easily cleans up by hand or in the dishwasher.
So if you can’t wait to grill all that fresh, delicious produce that’s coming our way over the next few weeks, you’ll definitely want to snag this sleek beauty STAT. Even better? After everyone else has packed away their bulky outdoor grills for the season, you’ll still be enjoying BBQ faves well into fall — and beyond.
