Award-winning chef and restaurateur Rick Bayless knows his way around Mexican cuisine. Chile peppers are an integral part of many Mexican dishes, and roasting the peppers in order to remove the skins is now made easier with this cast-iron roaster/griddle combination. The heavy cast-iron roaster is basically an open ring with handles, which fits around a gas or electric burner. Fitting in that is the cast-iron grill, and on top of that go the chile peppers. Turn up the heat, and turn the peppers from time to time to char all sides. You can also use the setup in the oven, or with the smooth griddle instead of the grill. Steak or chicken strips for fajitas sear on the griddle, and it also keeps tortillas at just the right warmth for serving. Choose a color for the roaster's exterior and match with other Rick Bayless kitchen accessories. After use, wash and dry the pepper roaster and parts by hand. --Ann Bieri

I got this as a gift, and quite frankly, I was annoyed. Who needs another specialty item in a crowded kitchen?

Once I tried it, I was hooked. This is the BEST for roasting hot chili peppers and makes an unbeatable salsa! Roast hot peppers until they are charred completely, rinse off the burnt black peel, chop finely, and you are set!

The solid grill is fantastic for pancakes, and when flipped over, the flat surface makes a really good warming tray whose heat is adjustable.

I love this item!!!

If you have a BBQ grill it will produce more peppers, quicker and better than this "roaster". It simply is an open ring that elevates the grill about 3 inches above your stove flame, but leaves your burner open to staining from dripping peppers. The unit has a separate flat plate to turn it into a small griddle or tortilla warmer but a standard cast iron skillet or griddle would accomplish all of this more simply. It does look attractive so if you are into collecting obscure kitchen utensils this might be for you. Everyone else will probably be disappointed.

I bought this to use mostly as a cast iron skillet, at 7$, i couldnt go wrong! I then realized that i could actually use the grill part as well...i love roasted eggplant or garlic...just wrap in foil and place on top of the griddle and turn every few minutes. in no time you will have roasted veggies...plus the foil prevent any dripping. The griddle attachment can be used for pancakes, grilled cheese, fajita meats, ...anything really! its a lovely, heavy, durable product...if it were $50, i'd think twice, but at 7-8$, you cant go wrong, even if u use it as just a griddle.

I was always jealous when I saw other people roasting peppers right on the burner of their gas stoves. I have one of those flat top electric stoves. With this roaster I can be like all the cool kids! It works great and I have some lovely roasted Anaheim peppers to prove it.

A bargain price for this otherwise overpriced item.
Could not go wrong with this one.
If you do not wish to use it inside on top of gas burner, then, it works outside on the grill or even over the properly set up camp fire.
I think you have to keep its concept of charring the whole peppers in order to remove the outer skins and to add flavor over the open grill part of the unit to get full use out of this item.
Be sure to properly season & clean & store this item like any cast iron cookware and it will last indefinitely.
If it had been higher priced, I probably would not have made the purchase, but I knew what I wanted if for and it works for me.

I should have known better! I am a freak about keeping my glasstop stove clean, so this product is not for me. I have a couple of cast iron pans that I use regularly so I figured I would like this one. But...I don't care for it. The bottom is extremely rough (scratches) and it is not pre-seasoned. On a positive note, it is very nice looking. I will give it to my mother-in-law who uses a gas stove (better suited for a gas stove).

Of course you can heat tortillas in a frying pan -- but it isn't as much fun as this item. Great show stopper for parties and just plain fun for every day. Haven't tried the pepper roasting feature for fear of a mess on my stove, but will put down foil and give it a try. Bought this one for my son after having bought one for myself at a higher price.

I got lucky and ordered the Pepper Roaster in red (Salsa)for only $7.99 (elegible for super saver shipping with additional purchases totalling $25). In addition to warming totillas and toasting baguets of bread, I use it for keeping covered dishes warm, over a low heat setting,(like premade mashed potatoes, etc). I found that it works well as a heat diffuster under Green Pans which helps to prolong their nonstick life. I am going to try making flat bread on it as I discovered a wonderful Naan recipe online that requires a grill. Even though it is messy (drips pepper juices on the electric cook top burners), it creates the most delicious roasted bell peppers that give recipes a fabulous flavor. I set it up on my counter to set hot pots and pans coming out of the oven or off the burners. The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because no photo came with the instructions. I had to go online to see how to assemble, as I couldn't figure out what to do with the flat griddle (it is just an additional piece to substitute for the grill part,you don't actully use it along with the open grill grate); however, it does come with a booklet of fabulous recipes by Chef Rick Bayless. I love my Pepper Roaster!
