What to Cook On.

In my opinion the 10 1/2" round cast iron griddle is best for cooking pancakes. You can get one made by Lodge at Wal*Mart (or elsewhere if you are opposed to Wal*Mart on principle) for under $15. It is superior to the run of the mill cast iron pan because the sides are low and permit you to go in with your spatula at a shallow angle to flip the pancakes. I prefer it to a rectangular griddle that spans two burners because it's lighter, and I find it pleasing to cook one pancake at a time. If a cast iron griddle is well seasoned, it will be almost as non-stick as teflon, but without the toxic hazard to your parrot.
