My boss gave me a Christmas gift of $500 worth of Williams-Sonoma products and I wanted to check out the Staub 12 inch grill pan. While I waited for it to be delivered, I did a search online for reviews (go figure, I work backwards.) The one odd issue is cracking. Hmm, so I was concerned. I just used it to cook some incredible burgers. Used grapeseed oil on the preheated pan at medium-ish next mark. Got the sizzle going on just fine. Cleaned up - looks like new.
No cracking. Is this something I should worry about? Does it happen first time out, or after a bit? Or, is it operator problems.
(I did a search for Staub grill pans before posting, and it didn't really turn up much about the grill pans.)
