A SCOTTISH GIRDLE / IRISH GRIDDLE

£43.00

A traditional Scottish Girdle / Irish Griddle, from an original 170 year old design, which is used to bake authentic and historic Scottish and Irish regional recipes on.

NOTE: The domestic sized (12 inch / 30 cm diameter and 8mm thick) Scottish and Irish hanging plate/griddle have the same shape and design, as in history the same basic griddle, with a half-moon handle shape, was given different regional names depending on where it was used. The distinctive half-moon shaped handle does fold flat for easy storage.

Being made to a traditional thickness (8mm) the Oakden griddles are far more heavy-weight and robust than the cheap copies other outlets sell; these inferior, thin copies are no better than using a cheap frying pan which will buckle under the heat (creating hot spots) and are not at all suitable for the traditional style of cooking that most traditional recipes call for. An Oakden griddle will last many lifetimes of use and it will retain and radiate the heat necessary (whilst remaining flat) to cook perfectly even the most demanding recipes.

A traditional Scottish Girdle (yes, that is girdle not griddle, although it is also confusingly called a griddle in Scotland) or Irish Baking Iron is used to bake authentic regional recipes on, such as flat breads, boxty, shortbread, bannocks, buttermilk scones, Beremeal scones, potato cakes, oat cakes, pies, pancakes, tarts and biscuits etc. We also make this griddle in a larger size.

Please see ‘How To Season Your Griddle‘ for information on caring for this item.

This is a hand-made reproduction, made from an original design dating back over 170 years, and because it is made of a thick steel plate (8mm) it is able to be used on a wide range of modern convection / induction / radiation cookers and fires. It can also be used over an open fire, using a fire dog to sit on.

WEIGHT : 3.5Kg

We also have a larger sized traditional hanging griddle for sale. Large Griddle link.

Note this is a heavy item : due to the weight please use carefully on induction and ceramic hobs.

Heat Source / Cooking Top : This can be used on all Gas or Electric cookers and on both Ceramic or Induction cookers … This is a unique cooking product made here at our workshops at Oakden and it is made of a thick steel plate (which is basically like cast iron, without the brittleness) and so it is able to be used on a very wide range of modern convection / induction / radiation cookers and fires. It can also be used over an open fire, using a fire dog to sit on etc.
