I once asked a chef in the family -- If he could have only one piece of cookware, what would it be. He said a stovetop grill. That winter, my wife bought me a two-burner reversible grill-griddle by Nordic Ware. It got us into the habit of stovetop grilling. But it was difficult to clean, and before long it was caked with food that seemed to have bonded with the surface. Time for a more serious replacement.
After some research, I narrowed it down to either the All-Clad product or the Cephalon version. I chose All-Clad mainly because it was about $50 less expensive, and the reviews were just as good.
I have not been disappointed. The grill cleans up with almost no effort. We leave it on top of the stove all the time. For one thing, it's large and you need some serious storage for it. But leaving it out makes it convenient to use, and we use it for most of our cooking. (I only wish it were reversible and had a griddle on the other side.) So save up your pennies and buy this one. It's a winner.
