My parents had one of those reversible waffle iron/griddles. It did the job.

The conveyor flame cooker is available to anyone who wants to open a Burger King. It's how they cook their burgers (flame broiled, NOT fried).

Yeh, I figured as much with the conveyor flame griller. But I'm just not planning on opening a Burger King. So, with some ingenuity, maybe I can design one for personal use. It would make a great project. Plus, think of it. You could cook any meat you wanted on it, as long as it fit into the conveyor. Control the flame size, and the conveyor speed and you can get your steaks any degree of doneness you would want. Or, grill up some chicken breasts, quick, or pork chops, or fish fillet's. But I'm gonna quit now. I'm off topic.

I do think you could use them, but you will only be able to cook something small in them. A hamburger or chicken breast. Depending on how you cooked it, there could be some splattering. If you are wanting something very small, I like them.

Well if they're too small I could always use them just for paninis! But they seem pricey compared to the Lodge pans.

Le Creuset® Soleil Skinny Grill | Sur La Table

I really like my Le Creuset skinny grill. Cast Iron is great for heat distribution and the enamel coating makes it a breeze to clean. And they come in lots of pretty colors!

I have a square Le Creuset grill/panini pan with a grooved lid. I just use the green side of a scrubby sponge to clean it. It's not that big a deal.

I wonder how it compares to the Lodge Logic grill pan, which is priced a lot lower than the Le Creuset. Anyone know?

I bought the Le Creuset because I like the look of it and I'm slowly replacing my old plain cast iron and glass Pyrex pans with it, so I have a collection now. I didn't pay full-price - I buy Le Creuset at the outlet store or TJ Maxx.

I really think you're over-thinking this Cast iron is cast iron. Any of these will perform and clean up pretty much the same.

I wouldn't know the difference because I'm a newbie cook. It's helpful for me to get feedback about different types of cookware.
