Pan Dolce

With so many options available, finding the perfect grill pan can be painful. After wasting my money on too big, too heavy, and too hard to clean versions, I almost gave up indoor grilling forever, until I came across Calphalon’s solution. Its 13-inch round grill pan is big enough to accommodate a flank steak yet light enough to still lift. To boot, it’s got a silicone-coated handle that stays cool no matter how much you turn up the heat, and an anodized coating that makes for swift cleanup. Plus, it’s under $40.
