Editor's Notes

April 03, 2019:

Instead of limiting ourselves, we decided to add several variations of Korean grill pans in order to satisfy the wide variety of chefs out there. That means we looked at models that use water, those that do not, and electric offerings. Out of all of these, it's still tough to beat the TeChef Stovetop, which is non-stick but safe, eye-catching, and easy to use. The CookKing Master is similar, but it has channels for small pieces or liquids — a double-edged sword, since it's convenient but also just a bit harder to clean. When it comes to models that use water, we think the WaxonWare Black is a fine choice, although it's a little pricey for the overall construction, and you shouldn't expect any bells and whistles. And speaking of more feature-laden models, we added the Zojirushi Indoor Grill and the Maple Suki BBQ/Hot Pot. They'll help you whip up some Korean barbecue and so much more, bringing all types of Asian cuisine into your home. This also means they're a bit more expensive, but if you reach for this type of cookware often and have the storage space, they may well be worth it.
