We happened to pass by Sur La Table this morning and decided to pop in and take a tour around to check out new products. Within seconds, the Staub Rectangular Grill Pan leaped out and grabbed us with its little iron grip.
What have we here? An enameled cast iron grill pan with a svelte and slim profile with a folding and removable handle. Which means you can grill up your meats and veg and then transfer to the oven for finishing or just warming. The collapsible handle also makes it easy to store.
With a finish similar to Le Creuset's line of cookware, Staub makes comparable products with comparable prices. But right now this pan is on sale at Sur La Table for $39.95 (regularly $59.95). We couldn't resist.
After drooling over that Viking range this morning, we wanted a little pick-me-up from the realm of reality - the little pan will store easily beside our 18" stove in our little pocket of a kitchen. We are happy.
UPDATE: The grill pan is no longer available at Sur La Table, but is carried by Cook's Warehouse for (yikes, price hike!) $99.99.
