The thing about using a pan on the grill is that it blocks the smokey goodness and char from being placed on veggies, unless you place them directly on the grill. But if the veggies are sliced thinly, like with fajitas style veggies, more goodness can end up in the charcoal along with the veggies that slip through the grill. Not so, if you have a Mesh Fry Pan.
Woven out of heavy gauge stainless-steel wire, the Mesh Frying Pan provides for that yummy seared char without the slippage. And thanks to the tight mesh, the surface area resists sticking, so when using the long handle, grillers can shake back and forth and toss veggies for yummy coverage (I’d still use some cooking spray though, just in case).
And at $30 from Williams-Sonoma, the price is competitive with just about any frying pan in your cooking arsenal. And if you’re like me and you cook on the grill just about every night during the warm summer months, this puppy can be a godsend. Just don’t try and fry an egg on it.
