Cracked cast iron griddle on induction
I was planning to make pancakes for my son - I set the 14" round, super heavy Griswold cast iron griddle on the largest hob and set it to heat up on the 10 setting (it goes up to 12) while I mixed the batter. A minute later, I hear a noise like a gunshot - the skillet had cracked!
Has anyone ever heard of this? I had used the griddle a few times before, never for pancakes, mostly making tortillas; it's new, but vintage; i.e. I just bought it on eBay.
Any recommendations on the best way to heat up cast iron on induction? Thanks!
