Greystone 11.5″ Non-Stick Griddle – TSP Item of the Day
Every day I bring you an item on Amazon that I personally use or has been purchased by many members of the audience and I have researched enough to recommend.
Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is the Greystone 11.5″ Non-Stick Griddle , after a few months of using my Greystone 13 inch frying pan I am hooked on this cookware. Nothing sticks to it, you can cook hot as blazes if you want to, it wears like iron and you can use metal utensils.
Finding Greystone was a tag team affair. In Episode 1828 Chef Keith answered a cookware question and mentioned Italian Moneta cookware as a high quality non stick cook ware without the problems of things like Teflon. Looked good but was expensive enough for me to just use my old cast iron.
Then a listener named Camaron told me about this product called Greystone that was actually the exact same thing. Just basically a US Based brand of Moneta. So I check it out and it vetted 100% true. So I ordered my first pan. In a word it is amazing, it is everything those stupid infomercials promise about all the green this and copper that bullshit yet fail to deliver.
Durable as hell, non stick, oh wow is it! Looks good, light weight and just damn fine, but what do you expect from Italy when it comes to cooking. What Moneta did here is smart too.
They set up a US based brand, with the same product. They then ship tons of it at a time so they are doing all US based distribution. This of course creates US jobs even with a Italian made product and cuts the cost to the consumer by about 25% or more. Win, win, win.
I have now decided personally to add the Greystone 11.5″ Non-Stick Griddle because it will be better for some things than the frying pan, or because sometimes you are using two pans at one time.
This really is a great product. You know how you have to use those pathetic plastic utensils on most non stick, not this, metal is fine. Next there is this little logo on the handle right were it joins the pan, you can’t see it at first. When the pan is up to temp it turns green and shows up, this lets you keep turning down the heat to use the minimum amount to maintain a good cooking temp.
The pans heat up really fast, they hold temp quite well, it honestly made me love my gas stove even more than I already do. Over time I plan to get rid of many of my pans and replace them with these. I will still use cast iron for somethings, especially stuff that finishes in the over, as this stuff isn’t oven safe. That is not due to the coating, but rather the handles.
If your frying pans have seen better days, check out the Greystone 11.5″ Non-Stick Griddle or the entire line up today.

I bought the 13″ pan on your recommendation here and have to say that I absolutely love it. I wasn’t aware of the little green logo thing so I’ll have to check that out. I unfortunately have an electric stove but the Greystone heats so evenly that is makes it bearable to use. I will be getting a smaller pan next, then probably the griddle – even though I don’t do bread anymore I’m sure it’s good for lots of things.
I do wish the handles were oven-safe though…
Will it work with an induction cooktop?
How well are the handles attached?
I guess all I can say is there is no play in them.
No Joy at Amazon anymore.
I waited three days too long. All the Graystone cookware is gone.
I just ordered two of the square pans and an 11.5 inch as gifts for Christmas I mean like just now, this second.
How about lids for them? Got a source?
Looking for glass lids/covers.
Okay so these pans don’t come with lids and the manufacture doesn’t make them. For the frying pans I just use the lids I have for other pans as they are a standard size. I can’t find anything for the griddle as just a lid and lids seem expensive when bought alone.
There are some 11.5 electric skillets out there, that come with lids but I would hate to tell you to buy one for just the lid. I haven’t needed a lid for the square skillet and can’t really see the need. I do have an antique version of this http://amzn.to/2grLzBw that gets a lot of work.
Anyway if you wanted a lid for the round pans you can just search for say 11 inch pan lid on Amazon you will get something like this, http://amzn.to/2g3cEy7 just replace 11 with your correct size. Again for the square skillet there isn’t anything in 11.5 I can find stand alone.
Thanks for the quick reply. I was more interested in lids for the round ones anyway. There’s a good chance, just like you, that I already have a round lid that will fit most of them. I was just curious if you had a go-to source for something you knew would fit. If I end up needing one and order it off amazon, I’ll post a link back here when I see that it fits.
Thanks for the work you do and keeping me company with your podcasts on my long commutes to work.
