Seventh Day of Gadgets: A Grill Skillet

Grill SkilletOur Weber grill is hooked up to house gas instead of propane and it's only about 15 steps away from the kitchen, so it gets a lot of use no matter what the season. As you might imagine, we have a lot of accessories for it — a fish grill, a grill basket, a rotisserie, a smoker box, various spatulas, tongs, forks, basting brushes and so on.

One of the handiest things hanging out by the grill was also one of the most inexpensive: a $5.99 grill skillet. It's all metal with an enameled cooking surface, cleans easily, and the handle folds so it doesn't take much room to stow away. I usually use a deeper grill basket to cook large quantities, but the 12" grill skillet is perfect for grilling a few veggies, shrimp, scallops, fish fillets, or any other small items you might want to stir-fry (or, more accurately, stir-grill).
