Lodge has a few models; This one is meant for prime rib, and it has a well for your "au jus".
Isn't that nice? I like ketchup with my steak, but I've been told that's a faux pas.
These platters are meant for serving sizzling steaks and keeping them hot at the table.
And I completely agree that they serve their purpose; However, the 10 inch griddle serves the exact same purpose for less, minus the fancy au jus well.
I've used mine to bake pizza rolls.
If you'd prefer a smaller griddle for serving (such as for fajitas), Lodge also has an 8 inch, which I use for frying my eggs, as well as a 9 inch shallow, intended for serving tortillas.
Or, you can use the ever famous fajita pan, referenced in my previous post!
Fajita pan = small griddle = serving platter. They're the same.
