A regular grill just can’t handle certain foods, and that’s where a griddle or "planca" comes in. From veggies to cheese and from burgers to fajitas, a proper plancha elevates your grilling game like no other tool.
This sturdy griddle, wholly made of high-quality iron, has two handles and uses very little space. The removable legs allow you to adjust the plancha to any grilling scenario, and they make it easy for you to carry it around from one grilling party to the next.
Versatility is the name of the game. A plancha allows you to cook delicate food like scallops or fish fillets, sneaky food like asparagus and veggies, and even steak, chicken, and sausages.
Cutting your meat and veggies right on the plancha is a space-saving strategy used by the best master grillers, who know there’s no substitute for a real iron plancha.
Get your plancha today and take the next step into grilling mastery by increasing your versatility to levels you didn’t think possible.
Great quality and got to America in just a couple weeks!
I am basically happy with my new Extra Large Plancha from Gaucholife . It was shipped from Argentina to me here in Maine USA well packaged and via FedEx so it was fairly quick considering the distance. I have been learning more about fire cooking and this was the only authentic Argentinian-style Plancha I could find for sale on the internet. The griddle surface is well made and sturdy and beautiful. The legs leave a little something to be desired: I wish they were just a bit beefier in both girth and perhaps a few more inches of length. The girth of the legs doesn't feel particularly well matched to the heft of the griddle plate - slightly wimpy. They screw into nuts that are welded to the bottom of the plate, and one of the nuts on mine was slightly cockeyed so once screwed in the leg wasn't totally straight. It still functioned fine though, and in the first use I seasoned with lard over an open flame and had good success cooking some bacon on it after that. One thing I would suggest is finding a way to make the legs adjustable to accommodate slightly uneven ground out-of-doors where the plancha gets set up - perhaps a threaded sleeve of 3-6" long, instead of the shallow nut, so that the leg can get screwed in as far as you need to accommodate the terrain. Overall I am pleased, and I look forward to many more years of open fire cooking with it. Thank you!
This was EXACTLY what I was hoping for. Purchased the XL version, and successfully roasted hundreds of oysters for large outdoor gathering in batches of about 50 at a time. It was the hit of the party, and many asked where they could also get one. Used again the next morning for a big breakfast. Temperature was surprisingly easy to regulate, and everything cooked very well. Couldn't be more pleased. Shipping was also prompt.
I'd been looking for a plancha type hotplate for a few weeks from somewhere in the uk. . . .Unfortunately to no avail! Came across Gaucholife accidentally and am so glad I did. As I was looking for something quite specific Gaucholife agreed to customise one of their regular products. Whilst I've yet to use the plancha I can see it's been extremely well made and can't wait for our next open fire bbq. Communication has been brilliant all the way through the process from discussing my specifications to a concern I had regarding delivery.
I've twice purchased from this seller. This seller is completely reliable and quality is excellent. My last purchase arrived one day earlier. Prices are extremely competitive, like buying at any tourist oriented shop in Buenos Aire, but you saved yourself the trip¦ still, everyone should go to BA. Anyway, go ahead, buy with confidence.
