Food Tastes Better On Arteflame Griddle Plancha Grill Inserts

Gone are the days of soggy, overcooked food. The Arteflame plancha insert replaces any standard grill grate with a sleek and stylish griddle that will give you perfectly cooked seafood or steak without sacrificing their juiciness! This is because it has ridges on top to prevent food from slipping through while also providing a smoking flavor as well so no more burnt tastes here either; just delicious smokey goodness every time.

Arteflame is committed to providing the cleanest and best quality food-grade steel for our customers. We use an expensive process that ensures all products are free from scale or any other unwanted material, making them ready for cooking in your ovens!

 Our products are made of steel and free of harmful chemicals like lead, cadmium, and iron. They're also durable enough to last for years - perfect for the griller in your life!

This easy-to-use accessory transforms your grill into a versatile cooking machine, perfect for everything from pancakes and eggs to steak and chicken. With six different sizes to choose from, there's an Arteflame Griddle Plancha Grill Insert perfect for every grill!

Carbon Steel vs Cast Iron

Why use carbon steel cooktops rather than  cast iron?  What is the difference and why is carbon steel any better?

Carbon Steel and Cast Iron are very similar.  This is why both are very good for cooking and grilling.  The main difference is that Carbon Steel contains about 1% Carbon while Cast Iron contains 2% - 3% Carbon.  This difference might not sound like much but the carbon effects the grain structure of the metal.  As the Carbon gets added to the steel mix, Carbon has a tendency to clump together into lumpy carbides and form pockets of pure carbon (graphite).  When this happens, the metal becomes very hard and very brittle.  It disrupts the grain of the metal, making it irregular, brittle and prone to cracking.  This is the reason why Cast Iron often cracks or breaks.  When Cast Iron is heated unevenly, the heat differential causes stress in the metal as the thermal expansion is uneven.  When this stress encounters a pocket of carbon, Cast Iron cracks.  This is also why Cast Iron often breaks when it is dropped.  The area of high carbon is extremely brittle and can’t stand the shock.

Because Carbon Steel has only 1% Carbon, this phenomena is negligible and much easier to control and prevent from happening.  The grain structure in Carbon Steel is very uniform and virtually impervious to heat stress or shock.  In addition to this, Carbon Steel is “rolled” in the steel mill.  It is forced between heavy rollers while the steel is hot.  After rolling the steel and getting it to the right thickness, the steel is “doused” with cold water that causes the grain structure to freeze in place.  This makes Carbon Steel very strong and the choice material to cook on.  Even with uneven heat loads or dropping Carbon Steel, it will not break or crack.  This allows for a lifetime of use.

The larger the surface area and the thinner the material, the more prone Cast Iron is to cracking and breaking.  In a grill, the heat is never uniform.  This makes cast Iron an especially poor choice for grill inserts.  For this reason, all Arteflame cooktops, inserts, griddles and Burger Pucks are made of Carbon Steel.

      Great addition to my gas grill

      Arteflame does it again! I already have a round insert for my Kamado so I decided to try the square one for my gas grill as well. I went with the smallest one as it’s just my wife and I most of the time. I just use my insert on top of the grates so I don’t have to remove the grates. Works awesome!!! Love grilling Arteflame style on my gas grill!

      I could not have asked for a higher grade plancha that has produced incredible results on the grill. Will certainly purchase again and highly recommend.
