Thanks Andy! I hope I can get the hang of using cast iron pans!

They can be a bit tricky getting used to setting the burner heat, especially the thicker ones. It will become hotter than you want and not cool down as quickly as you would like until you get used to it.

That shouldn't take long and once you do you'll love them.

I'm using my grandmothers cast iron. They are going on 90 years old and are still going strong.

Have you checked Ikea? They have aluminium, teflon coated grill pans:

GRILLA Grilling pan - IKEA

SKÄNKA Grilling pan - IKEA

I have never used these. I have no idea about the quality.

I haven't seen these before. They're bigger than the size I need, so I may go for the Lodge 8".

I hope so! People on the forum seem to like them a lot, especially for cooking meat. I'm willing to give it a try and post questions if I run into trouble!

How about something like this:

Norpro Mini Cast Iron Panini Pan with Press : Amazon.com : Kitchen & Dining

or maybe this?

Lava Cookware LV ECO P GT 1616 BLK 6-Inch Cast-Iron Square Grill Pan, Mini, Slate Black : Amazon.com : Kitchen & Dining

Both are cast iron, but they are tiny.

These are adorable! Do you think they could be used to grill small cuts of beef or chicken?

Of course, although I think you'd get a lot of splattering on the stove because they're so small.

With pans this size, you won't be able to cook anything larger than one burger.
