The Steelmade Flat Top Jr. adds amazing versatility to your 5 Burner Gas Range. Make delicious meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner on one unique cooktop that only gets better with age. The Flat Top Jr. is perfectly sized to cover the the center and right side burners while offering a large 18" x 18" cooking area. This leaves the left burners open for your regular pots and pans.
We use super-thick 3/16" steel on all of our standard Flat Tops that is over 50% thicker than competing griddles and nearly 4x thicker than typical pans or skillets. This larger thermal mass puts more heat into the food in less time for better sears and quicker cooking.
Stainless Steel Drip Tray
Every Flat Top includes a dishwasher-safe stainless steel drip tray that sits below the drain holes to collect drippings and make cleanup a snap.
Uniquely Designed Front Lip
The unique design of the front lip on the Steelmade Flat Top is part of the secret sauce that makes cooking on a griddle so special. What seems like a bold design choice actually creates critical airflow to keep food from getting soggy while providing easy access to the food when cooking. The front of the Flat Top features a small 5 degree break to prevent accidental spills without interfering with any of the important features of our three-sided design.
Safe, Natural Non-Stick Cooking Surface
The seasoning process is literally the black magic of Flat Top ownership. If you've ever owned cast iron cookware, you're probably already familiar with the term. For the uninitiated, "seasoning" refers to a natural chemical reaction where oil and fat are heated to the point where they literally bake into the steel through a process called polymerization. This transforms the raw silver steel into a gorgeous black finish with amazing non-stick properties without the use of dangerous coatings like Teflon that only gets better with time.
Easy To Store
Our popular Cover Boards are competition-quality cutting boards available in Maple or Walnut custom manufactured to fit securely on top of the Flat Top. This provides an attractive cover for storing when not in use and doubles as an extra large prep space when cooking!
Our Flat Top Griddles will transform your normal kitchen stove into a restaurant-quality cooktop. There are many reasons why restaurants use flat top griddles for cooking the best meals and now you can enjoy the same benefits at home!
1. Food cooks faster on a Steelmade. We use super-thick 3/16" steel on all of our standard Flat Tops that is over 50% thicker than a Blackstone Griddle and nearly 4x thicker than typical pans or skillets. This larger thermal mass puts more heat into the food in less time for better sears and quicker cooking.
2. Food tastes better on a Steelmade. The reviews are in and customers agree: food just tastes better on a Flat Top. The most important part of the flavor comes from the unique seasoning layer that builds up on the Flat Top with use. Not only does this create a naturally non-stick cooking surface it also adds to the flavor of any food. The more you use it, the better it gets! The unique design of the front lip also allows for important airflow that will keep food from getting soggy while cooking - something that can't be duplicated in pans and skillets.
3. Two Minute Cleanup. The Flat Top is simply the easiest piece of cookware to clean - period. Right after you're done cooking you just pour a cup of water on the Flat Top and it steam cleans the surface in seconds with no soap or scrubbing required. Even the biggest meals can be cleaned up in under 2 minutes!
The average American dines out 5.9 times per week and according to BLS data, the average household spends about $3,500 on eating out every year, or just shy of $300 per month.
That means, in less than 30 days of cooking at home, your Steelmade Flat Top will have paid for itself - and then some!
The Steelmade Flat Top Jr. is designed to work with standard 30" gas ranges with 5 burner cooktops that include a center oval-shaped burner with a minimum 19" of cooking area depth. It will not heat correctly on cooktops without the center burner.

Flat Top Jr. Dimensions
The drip tray is placed below the grate in front of the center burner. Many grate designs are open enough so the drain holes have a clear and open path to the drip tray below. Some grates may have a small portion that run directly under the drain holes. If your grate lines up directly beneath a drain hole you can prevent drippings from touching the grate by putting a little piece of tin foil around the small part of the grate that sits directly underneath the drain holes. Alternatively, you can remove the center section of grate entirely.
Please note, we do not recommend or offer support for using the Jr. Flat Top on glass ceramic cooktops.
