We love a chargrilled flavour to our dinner, whether it’s a steak with chimichurri or some lovely halloumi bound for a salad. A mid-week BBQ isn’t always feasible, however, so our trusty griddle pan steps up to the plate for a quick and delicious way to cook almost anything… we also love a griddled lemon wedge on the side of our kebabs! Here are our tried and tested picks of the best griddle pans.
