Best for stovetop teppanyaki- Legend Cast Iron Griddle

(view more images)

Are you looking for a simple way to make teppanyaki at home without having to use special electric or charcoal cookers? Those are costly and maybe you just don’t have the space.

The good news is that if you have a gas cooktop, you can use this reversible cast iron griddle and grill your favorite meats, veggies, and more in minutes.

The Legend plates are some of the best-rated griddles because they’re actually made of quality cast iron that can last a lifetime with proper maintenance.

I like that this grill is fairly large (20 inches) so it can fit over 2 hobs, which helps with heat distribution. You can cook at even temperatures and ensure the food is cooked through.

It also makes searing easier compared to using an electric grill. Gas is a great fuel source for high-temperature cooking, especially searing.

You get 2 reversible plates, but for teppanyaki, I prefer the flat smooth top. It lets meat cook in its own juices so your steaks and skewers are never dry and overly chewy.

Each plate comes with 2 handles. Now, these are useful, but they’re on the small side, and since they get very hot, you have to handle them with care.

If you’re looking for a versatile plate, then you’ll be glad to know these cast iron griddles are oven-safe. You can even use them over an open fire while camping!

You should know that these griddles require regular seasoning. Use vegetable oil to season the cast iron or else it can rust and get damaged.

Finally, I want to talk about durability. Unlike electric cookers, these plates don’t warp, and you really can’t put dents in them. So these are long-lasting and sturdy, whether you use them indoors or outdoors.
