Few cooks on the new soapstone


Recommended Posts

Well I had been looking at the cast iron griddle for my KJ classic but they were either sold out or the price was $65 (supply and demand I guess). I found a KJ soapstone on sale for about $13 more so I pulled the trigger. I have cooked smash burgers and a little bit of seafood (swordfish and scallops) and so far so good with the soapstone!

Haha yes it was two separate nights. I grilled some asparagus and my wife did some rice for the seafood. But so far I’ve enjoyed the soapstone! Let us know how it goes with the lodge...sounds like a great deal!

It looks like an extra $13 well spent.

I haven’t cooked on the KJ CI griddle but I was really leaning that way until I decided on the soapstone. I guess only time will tell but I’ve definitely enjoyed it so far. Think I’m going to try to sear a flank steak on it tonight for some steak fajitas so we will see how that goes.

Just curious.  what's the advantage(s) of soapstone griddle over a cast iron griddle?


And, being totally off the wall, would a granite griddle offer any pluses?  (seeing as my buddy has granite shapes and rounds just sitting in his backyard from his house remodel)
