Half-Moon Cast Iron Grid
Half-Moon Cast Iron Grid
Our Cast Iron Grid holds heat to a restaurant standard, ensuring you get lovely charmarks and rich flavours from steaks, vegetables and fish. The handy half moon size means that you can mix and match it with other cooking surfaces and be using your Big Green Egg for two cooking modes at the same time.
Exceptional Heat Retention
Thanks to the high quality of our trusted cast iron, this Half Moon Cast Iron Searing Grid will give you restaurant-grade charlines, every time.
Mix and Match with the EGGspander
Our Half Moon Cast Iron Searing Grid can be mixed and matched with other cooking surfaces in your EGGpander system. This means that you could be grilling steak on one side, whilst preparing your peppercorn sauce on the other.
It couldn't be easier to add your searing grid to your EGG. Simply pick a side (wide charlines or narrow ones) and fire her up.
The benefits of cast iron are game changing
Better heat retention means incredible crusts, chars and barks, whether you're cooking meat, fish or veg. And because cast iron is seasoned, flavourful oils and fats work their way into the surface, enhancing your cooks with deep complexity. Look after your cast iron, and it'll last you a lifetime.
The EGGspander System
The EGGspander is a genuine game changer. As well as massively increasing your cooking area, the different heights and surfaces offer enormous amounts of flexibility. You can be grilling your meat on one side, whilst roasting your potatoes on the other and leaving your sauce to bubble away above. If you're new to the EGG, it’s THE indispensable accessory to go for. If you're not, you're going to wonder how you survived without it.
This Cast Iron Searing Grid is perfect for direct cooking over the flames. Foods like steak are more delicious than ever cooked over fire. As well as steak and traditional barbecue foods like burgers and sausages, fish never tasted so good — salmon and monkfish are great — and smaller vegetables are a surprising and delicious option. Don't be afraid to burn veg, as it only deepens the flavour.
Seasoning is the process of coating cookware with layers of fat to create a natural non-stick surface.
Cast iron and wrought iron have an amazing ability to retain seasoning. This means that your iron pans will become more and more non-stick with every use. What’s more, your food will begin to taste better as it takes on the flavours of the cooks that came before it.
But with great power comes great responsibility! You’ll have to re-season your iron cookware with a high burning-temperature oil (such as rapeseed oil) from time to time.
You can find full instructions for cleaning and seasoning your iron cookware here.
Firstly, never dishwash or submerge your cast iron in water. To clean on the EGG, simply bring your EGG up to a high temperature and use one of our Scrubbers to remove any debris. Then wipe down with oil to re-season.
