If there’s one brand we’re big fans of here at The Kitchn, it’s Le Creuset. Beloved for both its style, design, and durability, this heritage brand is home to many of our favorite cast-iron cooking essentials, including the Braiser, the Demi Kettle, and, of course, the iconic kitchen staple that is the Dutch Oven. That being said, the brand is also known for being on the pricier side of things, with many of its products sending you back a couple of hundred dollars. So, whenever we come across a piece of Le Creuset available at a steep discount, we’re going to tell you about it — and boy did we just find a good one. We’re talking about the Le Creuset Square Grill Pan, the beloved piece of grillware perfect for summer BBQ season that’s both easy on the eyes and (for now) easy on the wallet, at just $100. So, what’s so great about this grill pan? Let’s break it down.

First of all, this grill pan is made of Le Creuset’s tried-and-true enameled cast iron, which is known for its durability, stellar heat distribution, and superior heat retention. With this grill pan, you can be sure you’ll be getting an even sear every time. Featuring a satin black finish complete with a ribbed design for expert fat drainage, it requires no seasoning so you can get to work grilling up your favorite cuts of meat or vegetables right out of the box. While it may have the look of raw cast iron, this slightly abrasive interior is enamel coated, designed to develop a natural patina over time that is ideal for searing, browning, and frying, making it a piece that’s sure to become your grilling go-to.

In addition to its superior cooking prowess, this pan is also just a treat to use. Available in 16 stunning shades, it’s the perfect way to add a pop of color to your grilling collection. Add to this its square shape and easy-grip side handles, and this grill pan doubles as a durable multi-use piece that can go from stovetop to tabletop with finesse. So, if you consider yourself somewhat of a griller extraordinaire, you’re going to want to add this pick to your arsenal. But be sure you act fast — this sale won’t last forever.
