A traditional English Griddle (Standard Size | 12 inch / 30 cm diameter) is used to bake authentic regional recipes on, such as flat breads, drop scones, potato cakes, pies, English pancakes and pikelets, muffins, tarts and oat biscuits etc. Note: the half-moon shaped handle does fold flat for easy storage, and there is also a larger version of this griddle for sale. Please see ‘How To Season Your Griddle‘ for information on caring for this item.
This is a hand-made reproduction, made from an original 200 year old design, and, because it is made of a thick steel plate (which is basically like cast iron, without the brittleness) it is able to be used on a wide range of modern convection / induction / radiation cookers and fires. It can be used over an open fire, using a fire jack (trammel, pot-hook) to hang from, or using a fire dog to sit on, a modern gas stove, an electric stove and even on an induction hob or ceramic convection cooker. Note: this is a heavy item – 8lbs / 3.6Kg.
