The Griddle System is the perfect toolset to level up your summertime cooking, whether on the grill or over a campfire. Spanning a Carbon Steel Griddle (with customizable surface), a Lid, a Grill Press, and a Griddle Stand, these tools offer total control over where, how, and what you cook. Designed for mastering both indoor and outdoor cooking, the Griddle System lets you take the restaurant-style flat top from back burner to backyard to backwoods.

Whether you opt for the original Griddle, the completely perforated Grill Griddle, or the best-of-both-worlds Half Grill Griddle (our favorite for dual zone cooking), the Griddle System will revolutionize how you approach outdoor cooking. Here, you’ll learn how to set up your Griddle System to take full advantage of its benefits, all summer long.

Level 0: Stovetop or Grill

Alone, the Carbon Steel Griddle can be used over two burners on the stove, as well as in the oven and on the grill. The varyingly perforated Half Grill Griddle and Grill Griddles are perfect barbecue accessories (though not something we recommend for indoor use). But regardless of the style, the generous surface area of all the Griddles offers unparalleled searing potential, drastically reduces the cooking time, and is much more efficient for large-volume cooking.

Level 1: Over Coals

To set up the Griddle System, hold one Stand perpendicular to the ground, then notch the Griddle handle through the slots. Repeat on the other side, making sure both sides are at the same height setting.

The Stands have two height settings, with the shortest—Level 1—putting the Griddle 8.5” above the ground. This setting is perfect for slow cooking over spent coals and campsite get-togethers. When used with the Grill Griddle or Half Grill Griddle, ingredients get fully blistered with tons of smoky flavor thanks to the perforations at the bottom.

Level 2: Open Flame

The second setting of the Griddle System—Level 2—places the Griddle 10.5” high. This setting is ideal for safely cooking over a live fire of your choosing, whether at a campsite, in a fire pit, at the beach, or just in the backyard. The higher-intensity setting allows the flames to lick the edges of the Griddle and whatever’s on it—perfect for charred ingredients. Since Carbon Steel is able to withstand temperatures up to 1200F, you can worry less about the durability of your cooking supplies and more about what to make each night.
