Lodge Pro Grid Iron Griddle

Hi, my name is Kelly and I have an confession to make.  Ahem, I watch way, way, way too much Paula Deen.  I love the woman.  I watch her show or either I tape it.  I even watch re runs.  I'm so ashamed! I want her kitchen.  I want her ovens, I want her "Ya'll Come Back" sign over her stove.  Oh, and I want her deep fryer in the counter.  Can you believe that?  Well, maybe not the deep fryer.  I don't like that many deep fried things.  I don't like my chicken deep fried.  More like pan fried in about an 1-2 of oil.  Or baked, I love baked and grilled chicken.  Whew, I'm way off topic........ Squirrel....... I have a little story to tell. I was watching Paula cooking something in way too much butter and she used this Lodge griddle.  It struck me like lightening. I just had to have it.  I WANTED it!  Like all good things I went searching the Web.  The Lodge site wanted wayyyyyyy too much and the shipping was astronomical.  I found it on, wait, WalMart.com.  They got me hooked when the shipping was .19 cents.  Yep, I had to order it. It came and I am in love.  Here it is.
My heart was beatin so fast.  It fits so nicely on two burners.  It has a smooth side and a griddle side.
I had to have breakfast right then and there.  Who cares if it was lunch time. I wanted pancakes and sausage. 
Oh my, isn't that a pretty site.  Yes, I am in love.
Thank you Paul Deen.  Now, I have to admit that I looked up her measuring cups and spoons.  No, not the plastic ones that she has on her web site but the handmade hammered metal ones that she USES.  That will be somethin I order for myself when the economy is much better.  I can rationalize $39 for a 2 burner griddle.  Remember the shipping fee?  I just can't bring myself to spend $150 for measuring cups.  Even if they are hand hammered.  Do you think Paula would send me a set?  I am her BFF after all.  Hey, I would even clean her mess up after she cooked.  HEY PAULA, IT'S KELLY YOUR BFF. CALL ME!
Much Love and Prayers from Mainely Ewes Farm

Ok the griddle was definatly a must have item, but the measuring cups???? what are they hammered GOLD??? I mean I love Paula.......but come on.
Ask Ted real nicely and I am sure he can hammer you out some measuring cups out of something there on the farm.

Great looking grill. You will make hundreds of breakfast griddled on it for sure. I love Paula's kitchen too. I also like Ina's.

Hahaha, this is too funny! I love her also, but I'm far more in love with Martha Stewart. I ENVY her talent. I love to watch her shows! (even though I never get to because I get like 2 channels) :( But I buy her magazine all the time. It is really a sickness & I want her Tulip garden!

we are sisters of a different mother - I could live in Paula Deen's house with joy! Like the griddle and woo hoo about the overpriced measuring set - some things are just too silly to think of - bet Paula got those for free from the maker!

Hi Kelly

I have a griddle that I have had for years. Mine isn't cast iron. I use it mainly for camping purposes. I have never used it on top of the stove. I have a cast iron pancake pan for that delicious job. But now, I may be experiencing griddle envy!!!

What a great griddle! Don't suppose it can be used on a ceramic cooktop? I miss gas cooking!! Forgive me, but for me Paula Deen is nails on a chalkboard--but I sure do love her line of cookware! Wishing you a future with hammered measuring cups!

Janet said...

Yay! I figured out how to comment! I'm more of an Ina Garten fan but I need to get that griddle!!!

You are a sick woman. I think GreyWolf is right. Let Ted have a go at those hammered measuring cups. Heck, he can do everything else. We like Paula too. But personally I like Giada' measuring spoons. Paula cracks me up though. Can you cook Peanuts on your new griddle? You ought to at least give it a try. Then send me some. K?

You work hard Kelly and you SO deserve a splurge now and then(talking about the unique measuring cups here)! That griddle is very cool and it will bring you years of happiness. ~Lili

Hello there! Just wanted to let you know that we just started making those Y'all Come Back signs like the one in Paula's kitchen. A fan asked us for one and when we made it up it was so cute that we put it on our site. Here's a link if you'd like to check it out and thanks so much!http://www.etsy.com/listing/92475242/yall-come-back-metal-art-kitchen-sign
