Seasoned and non-stick
It is seasoned, non-stick cooking equipment using innovative technology. The metal press comes in various shapes and sizes but offers the same functionality making delicious warm toasted sandwiches and pies. The larger size pie iron is better as it accommodates more food. The grill grid along the iron side makes it a Panini press that can be used to cook grilled meat, cheese, bread rolls, and tortillas.
Sandwiches cooked with a pie iron are known as mountain pie, jaffles, hobo, or pudgy pies. Best quality pie iron is crafted from cast iron which is sturdy and heat resistant. A premium quality pie iron comes with a long hold and with a heatproof grip so you can toss the food while cooking. A clasp in the handle allows you to lock the iron.
