Nonstick grillpan

I want to buy a grillpan, but I don't know whether I should buy a nonstick grillpan or not. Which do you recommend (why)? Thanks in advance......

That's not nonstick I think. Isn't it harder to maintain/clean?

I, too, love my cast iron grill pan. Once it's seasoned, it's just about non-stick. May take a little time, but it's well worth it.

So how do you clean or maintain a non non-stick grillpan (is that a word)?

I really love my non-stick grill pan for the very reason that it's a BREEZE to clean up! No matter what kind you settle on, it's got to be one of our very favorite and most often used pans!

I have a CI grill pan...WagnerWare. I treat it like a searing pan, which means I don't really worry about getting it, in the words of the Triumph Motorcycle Co, ltd, "scrupulously clean." When the stuff does build up, I just burn it off, reseason, and start over. Seems to work just fine.

I don't think I'd want a round one either (not that size or shape has come up), but it's something that crosses my mind every time I see a small or round one.

What about the black marks on grilled food? I've read it's unhealthy and that you'd better remove that part... I wonder how many people do that though!

I think that's more for foods cooked over open flames or coals. Either way, I wouldn't worry about it unless I ate grilled foods five meals a day, seven days a week.

I saw round Lodge grill pans at a TJ Maxx once. I remember being disappointed because I was looking for a regular, round cast iron skillet.
