    Saw a stainless steel griddle to be placed on the grill. Had grease drain, looked well made. $49. Anyone tried one?

    I havent used stainless as a griddle, but love my cast iron griddle. No hot spots, it evenly distributes and holds heat great, pre-seasoned, easy maintance etc. Got mine from Cabelas for a $39. It's double sided, one w/ ridges for grilling, and a flat side with grease catch.

    I expect cast would be better....should have other applications also. Thanx.

    I have the same griddle as GoFish. Will not part with it and looking to buy another!

    Once properly seasoned and all it is a snap to clean. And, as mentioned, heat is uniform.

    Stainless will always have hot spots and given the wrong circumstance, can be a bear to clean properly. Stick with what works! Cast Iron works for me!

    I've got the same cast iron as GoFish and Monty. Have had it for years. Like the others, I just love it and wouldn't part with it for anything.
    It has a variety of uses but gets most of it's use, stir frying veggies or sautéing fish fillets on the BBQ Grill, with a smoker box running right beside it.
