Seared steak. Pork chops. Veggie skewers. The perfect grilled cheese sandwich. You can do it all — and so much more! — on Le Creuset’s enameled cast iron rectangular skinny griddle! Normally priced at $160, you can snag it for just $90 thanks to Amazon’s Prime Day deals. Yes, that’s a sweet 44 percent off the regular price tag!

If you’re not familiar with using a stovetop griddle, let us fill you in on what’s sure to be your next go-to kitchen essential. Think of the Le Creuset enameled cast iron skinny griddle as the love child of a cast iron pan and grill. But unlike a round cast iron pan, the rectangular skinny griddle has a unique, ergonomic shape that makes it easier to accommodate a lot more ingredients at a single go. And unlike a standard griddle model, it’s sleeker and simpler to use.

The slim size can easily fit pancakes, cheeseburgers, or toasted sandwiches for two. But it’s also a great size for whipping up pan pizzas or flatbread in a jiffy. Additionally, the high edges on the pan make it perfect for flipping and tossing vegetables, ensuring that everything stays inside. And the sturdy iron handles give you a firm grip, which is especially crucial when transferring the hot pan from the stovetop to the oven or dinner table. And once you’re done, you can easily slide it in a cabinet or pan rack for fuss-free storage!

In terms of performance, the griddle has a lot in common with cast iron skillets. For starters, just like the cast iron skillet, the griddle’s surface gets better over time: It’s coated with a protective, slightly abrasive satin black enamel to prevent damage and wear, so it develops a natural patina you’ll love for searing and browning food. But don’t worry about seasoning it like you would your cast iron pan; the enamel finish makes it a true non-stick. And since it’s Le Creuset quality, the griddle gives you “even and excellent heating” for a perfect cook.

So whether you’re whipping up breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert, just set your griddle on the stovetop and cook away. Because seriously, this deal is searing hot!
