Review of the Calphalon Square Grill Pan
Calphalon Grill . This way you can enjoy all the flavors of summer throughout the year, no matter where you live.
What makes for a good indoor grilling pan? Generally these products are square with raised ridges in the bottom. This creates the appearance of grill-grates without stepping foot outdoors.
Some of the features that are great, if you can find them, include a drainage spout for getting rid of grease and a nonstick cooking surface.
You also want a pan that has a long handle so you dont get hit by playful oil droplets, and one thats made from a material that disperses heat evenly.
Finally a grill with a lid is nice (not a necessity but it helps when cooking thicker cuts of meat, or if you want to steam something).
It heats up quickly and you can get it really hot for searing. Better still, the surface of this grill cleans up beautifully. Its really no fuss especially if you treat it with a little olive oil or vegetable oil before cooking.
ConsiderationsSome Calphalon products dont live up to their reputation or advertising. Im happy to report this is NOT one of them. Its sturdy, and seems like it would last for a very long time.
Note that it IS heavy (6 pounds). So if you have any issues with hand strength you might want to find something smaller.
Consumer ReviewsIm starting to feel like a Calphalon Grill seller but the consumer reviews on this mirror my thoughts very closely. The pan delivers everything it promises - from a stay-cool handle to beautiful grill lines and easy cleans up.
Since the food rests neatly on top of the ridges in the pan, you can steam vegetables (like corn on the cob) in this too you just need to find something to put over top. The lack of a lid is the ONLY real downfall this piece has.

SummaryIts well worth noting that Cooks illustrated magazine ranks this among the top ten nonstick grills on the market. I agree wholeheartedly. Spring, summer, fall or winter, youll enjoy the barbeque-like taste and image this pan produces (remember: we eat with our eyes!). Enjoy.
