I purchased the 10" Lodge Logic Grill Pan and the 10" Staub Grill Pan at the same time. The Staub pan is approximately three times the cost of the lodge logic pan. I find the Staub pan to be suburb in both look and feel, but both pans are entirely functional. Surprisingly, I found the lodge pan to have a smoother coating of outer enamel - I was less worried about scratching my glass top stove when using it. The lodge pan is about 1/2" shorter than the Staub pan - which may result in additional splatter. The cooking surfaces of both pans are the same size, however the surface of the lodge pan feels more porous than that of the Staub pan.

I found cleaning to be very simple for both pans. If you are having difficulty - I suggest soaking the griddle surface in hot water and detergent for an hour. This gives a chance for the detergent to break down and release fats. If you want to prevent burning - try cooking with temperatures no more than medium high - this is stated in the included manual. Be sure to give your pan a good coat of olive oil when cooking - I use the pressurized spray olive oil as it is far easier to get an even coat.

Staub Grill Pan Review Summary:

Pros (Compared to Lodge Logic): Height (Approx 1/2" Taller than Staub Grill Pan), Quality of Cooking Surface Enamel, No Pour Spout, General Appearance
Cons (Compared to Lodge Logic): High Cost, Smoothness of Outer Enamel

Overall Stars Staub 10" Grill Pan: 5/5
Overall Stars Lodge Logic: 4/5

If both pans had been the same height - I would have given both a rating of 5. The rest of the cons are outweighed by the difference in cost between the pans. At it's price point, the lodge pan is still a very good deal. If you have a modest budget - by all means - purchase the lodge pan.

The day I got it from Sur La Table I went and bought two New York Strips to break it in. They were text-book picture perfect with an external sear with blood red rare interiors. Incredible for seared steaks or burgers. Preheat on high heat for at least five minutes before cooking. Get it smoking hot before you put the meat on the grill. Juices from deglazing or rendered fat can easily be poured off with the two pour spouts to make sauces or reductions. And it is oven and broiler safe. You will not be sorry!

This pan is da shazzizo. Really.

HEAVY cast iron, with a glossy enamel exterior and a rough black enamel interior. It really doesn't need seasoning, as the enamel doesn't rust or stick. Preheat it until smoking hot, add a seasoned steak, leave on for a minute or two, rotate 90 degrees to get those great crosshatched grill marks, flip and repeat, then put into a preheated 450 oven for 4+ minutes, depending on how thick the steak is and how rare you want it.

Seriously foolproof steakhouse good steak, every time, as long as you don't over cook.

The same technique works really well for fish as well. Whatever you cook the sear and blast method works great, and it's easy to make pan sauce.

Although I give this five stars, be warned that it's not easy to clean. Forget trying to get it back to factory condition, ain't gonna happen. However, because the cast iron isn't exposed, but instead your dealing with black matte enamel, you can use dish soap and a scrubbie to get the worst, then leave it on medium heat to dry.

I use this pan constantly, particularly in the winter when it's not so much fun to grill, I'm giving my Alaskan brother one for his birthday. However, even in the summer months it still sees a lot of use.

This and my 9 qt. dutch oven get the heaviest use, and the biggest bang for my cookware buck.

Color Name: BlackSize Name: 12" Verified Purchase
My wife and I recently moved into a new building that doesn't allow us to have a normal grill on our balcony. We were forced into cooking our chicken breasts in a frying pan or baking them in the oven. Neither option was satisfactory since they generally product rubbery, flavorless chicken.

After a suggestion from a friend I took a chance and bought the Staub cast iron grill pan and I love it. It is extremely easy to get juicy chicken that is well browned without drying out the skin. All it takes is a little seasoning and a light brush of olive oil and you're good to go. If you want to get fancy, you can hammer out the breasts a little in order to make them a more uniform thickness.

One of the great things about cast iron is how well it holds and transfers heat. This pan doesn't require you to use a high temperature, medium to medium-low works fine as long as you give it about five minutes to pre-heat.

The two complaints I've heard the most about this pan are cleaning and the weight. So the pan is definitely heavy, but since I don't move it around too much that really doesn't bother me. As for cleaning, I haven't found it to be that bad. I've found that the trick is to clean it when it is still warm. One thing I've had success with is pouring scalding hot water into the pan directly after turning off the heat. This deglazes the little bits that might have otherwise stuck to the pan, so clean-up becomes a two-three minute job.
