I'm going to respectfully disagree about buying a grill pan. Check out this thread. A good amount of people find the grill pans useless for anything other than adding nice marks to the meat.

Agree. I hated the reversable grill and it wasn't worth the cost. It took so long to cook steaks, twice as long as the bbq or my George Forman. Just thought I'd let the op and others see both sides of the thought process on the grill pans.

Nothing odd about the salt thing Kadesma - my grandmothers did that, and so did my Mom! They also did that with pork chops ... but that was back in the days when pork chops had a nice amount of fat on them.

I think a lot of our parents and grandparents used methods they learned from family..I find I still make steaks and my dad's famos hamburgers the same as he did..Just can't let go of some things
