We purchased this grill for our cottage to use on top of our wood fire stove, it is perfect for it. We use the flat side for bacon, pancakes, home fries, sandwiches etc. and the grill side for meat, paninis and so on. It heats up nice and fast and is small enough to transfer on and off the stove when we are done with it or when we need to dump the bacon grease. I would recommend this! It makes your food taste that much better and it is so simple to use.
