-NEW- Green Egg Style / Kamado Style Solid Plancha Griddle Insert

9 reviews



Grill Steakhouse Restaurant Quality food at home with an Arteflame Insert.
Unlock the potential of your Egg and grill steakhouse quality meals at home with the addition of an Arteflame insert.  Once you swap your old grate out for the Arteflame plancha / griddle insert you are on your way to grilling your food the same way they do at top steakhouse restaurants.  The plancha will give you the perfect sear every time.

The plancha gives the perfect sear while not overcooking the inside of your steak. While the steak is sizzling in it's own juices, it naturally picks up the great smokey flavor from the live fire. The juices from traditional grill grates drip down into the fire along with the flavor. Live wood fire seasons the meat naturally, with a taste you cannot achieve any other way. Most importantly, the plancha griddle gets super hot, which is the key to sealing in great taste and flavor.  Nothing will ever compare to this formula. That is why the top restaurant steakhouse steaks taste so great.
The solid cooktop is also ideal for grilling vegetables, poultry or a complete breakfast.  Try bacon and eggs!

The Arteflame Big Green Egg inserts include three 3" risers in the 18" and 24” sizes. These risers clip onto the outer edge of the insert and raise it so that the plancha sits just below the felt gasket of your egg.  This makes it very convenient to grill without having to reach into the grill. The Arteflame insert for the Kamado versions have locating holes so they can be used on top of the flexible cooking rack.

    Carbon Steel vs Cast Iron

    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.

    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.

    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 only Carbon Steel.

    Perfect for any Big Green Egg user

    Absolutely LOVE this thing!!! Made very heavy duty and undoubtedly will last a lifetime. Finally a way to grill all my food at once on my Egg. Even paella! Great for breakfast for the whole family including eggs, bacon, pancakes and hash browns. I could never grill this before on my Egg. Sears the absolute best steaks ever. Very versatile. Great addition!!!!

    I have a XL BGE, it is a wonderful addition to my outdoor kitchen. It was so easy to season and I used it right away. Shrimp, vegetables including asparagus. My family and guests loved everything that came off the plancha. Great investment, I only just learned about your products. I have been telling all my friends about Arteflame. Some tips on cleaning the Plancha would be helpful. Regards RJ



    Hi Royce; The plancha is just like a cast iron skillet and can be cleaned the same way. After I'm done grilling, I scrape off all food from the cooktop and give it a quick wipe with a rag to remove excess grease and oil. I make sure there is no food / excess grease on the cooktop so its ready for the next time. Super quick and easy. Does that help? Michiel.

    Love it!

    I got this for my Weber Komado charcoal, and although it isn't listed for this grill, the 24in. does fit nice. The included spacers provide enough air to keep it hot and also rake coals underneath if needed. Only problem is you can't close the lid with spacers on. Wear some heavy gloves, lift griddle to take spacers off then settle it back down in grill. Will choke off air to coals but you should be done grilling or close to it anyway. Will still keep hot for a while. I have done a ton of things on this grill and highly recommend it!
