Do you love Seafood? Especially oysters in particular? Then, continue reading to find out more about the best cast iron oyster pan available for grilling oysters.
What are Your Options When it Comes to Grilling Oysters?
If are looking for a rectangular cast iron oyster pan that you can toss onto the grill, then this is a great pan. And certainly worth adding to your collection of cast iron cookware.
This 12-piece rectangular cast iron pan allows you to grill plenty of oysters, but also gives you more of “a handle on things” literally!
The long handles on this oyster pan provide you with a better grip and leverage when placing and removing this on the grill.
Simply shuck your oysters or place the half shells in the wells, grill, season with some garlic, add some freshly squeezed lemon and enjoy!
Of course, you also have the choice of going with the round oyster pan, if you prefer it. Both versions are capable of getting the job done.
Both pans will perform equally well besides the differences in shape and handle design. And both have 12 wells for you to pop in those oysters!
What is great about both the rectangular and round oyster pans is that they are great for serving your oysters. Their design make them very appealing. They are certainly a beautiful addition to any dinner table.
Will I need to Season My Oyster Pan Before I Use It?
These pans come pre-seasoned so no need to worry about seasoning for hours on end. However, you can opt to do 1 or 2 rounds of seasoning if you plan on getting creative and will use these for other baking adventures.
How Do I Take Care of My Oyster Pan?
No worries when it comes to clean up because clean up is a breeze. Simply rinse with warm water and quickly dry with a clean towel. Then lightly oil with your choice of oil.
My preference is flaxseed oil. Make sure not to overdo it when oiling. Because doing so can create some sticky and not so nice situation with your seasoning. You definitely don’t want that…. Once reheated, the excess oil on your pan will be “etched” into your seasoning.
Where to Buy these Pans
You can get this pan from a few manufacturers and retailers, Amazon being one such retailer.

So, definitely give one of these cast iron beauties a try, they are certainly worth it. They are built to last and provide you with years of use when cared for correctly.
