Buying a Cast Iron Grill Pan. Flat Rectangular Two-Burner Type or Skillet with Sides?

ellaj | Nov 6, 2006 01:38 PM

I am thinking the flat one that covers two burners (has grill pan on one side, flip side has flat griddle surface) would be most practical as it offers more cooking space but wondered if there's an advantage to having sides, like a typical skillet. The skillet type comes round or square. (is that just for appearance sake? Never used a square pan.)
Can't think of what I'd cook on a grill pan that would require sides but I've never had one so I just don't know.
Would not having a lid be a disadvantage or do you even need one with grill pan cooking? Any ideas?
After reading other posts here I'm looking at the Lodge preseasoned.
Slowly but surely this kitchen is getting outfitted. Next indulgence will be a really good knife. Cannot wait for that.

Thanks very much for your help!
