As summer is coming to an end, it’s time to fire up the grill and invite friends and family over for as many cookouts as you can. These grill pans ensure all your favorite summer meals are cooked to perfection—and some even keep the party going inside through cooler nights.

1) For Indoor/Outdoor Grilling

The Lodge pre-seasoned cast iron square grill pan measures 10.5 inches, and comes with a hot handle holder. This grill pan is the perfect option for indoor grilling in cool weather or backyard cookouts, and according to over 3,000 customer reviews, it only gets better with age. To properly care for pre-seasoned cast iron, clean the skillet immediately after use while it’s still warm, and loosen stubborn food residue with a salt scrub. Dry the skillet and apply a light coat of vegetable oil to prevent rust.

2) For Veggie Lovers

While most people think of steak, chicken, burgers, and hot dogs at cookouts, veggie lovers know there’s nothing better than grilled onions, peppers, corn, mushrooms, and more. This stainless-steel vegetable grill basket holds enough for the whole family, and is easy to clean.

3) For Delicate Foods

Grilled fish fans will love this Weber professional-grade grill pan. The small 1/8-inch slits in the stainless steel allow juices to escape while retaining heat and evenly cooking delicate food. Customers loved the easy clean up, and the way this pan worked just as well over an open campfire as on a grill.
