Griddle: nonstick vs cast iron?
Now that i'm about to move into my new kitchen w/a 6-burner stove, i'd like to get a griddle i can use for pancakes, etc, and maybe w/a grill on the reverse side. I've looked a little bit in the stores, and the cast iron seems just way too heavy for me to handle, plus if i'm not cooking bacon on it, i'm not sure i'll get the full nonstick patina i'd need. I'm wary of products that use nonstick coating b/c they just don't seem to hold up and b/c of health concerns. Are there any other options out there?
