My husband and I are moving into a new apartment and, sadly, losing our backyard, which means giving up our BBQ. I was thinking I could buy a grill pan to replace it, but I'm wondering if it's something I would really use. Before we had a BBQ, we didn't have a grill pan and were fine. For reference, we are pescetarian, so wouldn't be using the pan for meat.
