Le Creuset intends its pieces to be heirlooms, and in its nearly 100 years in business, it has had plenty of time to prove itself as a ceramic tableware master. If you’re looking for longevity and quality, you’ll find it in the Le Creuset Square Skillet. It’s relatively heavy and made of enameled cast iron, but the beauty of this grill pan lies in its weight. We’re not saying it’s a showpiece, though looks great in the kitchen. The cast iron construction ensures even heat distribution and retention, while the enamel coating provides a degree of non-stick and protects the pan from rust – eliminating the need to protect its spices. The sides taper, so a more realistic cooking surface is nine square inches, but that’s enough for two to four people, depending on what are you cooking. Raised ridges provide good grill markings at high heat.
