Recently I've been looking at cast iron and aluminum grilling pans - I'm at a lost as to which is the best buy (I aim to grill anything that's grillable).  Any advice? Thanks

Given a choice, cast iron is the only way to go.

One thing to keep in mind: Not every model fits every stove. I have a Bobby Flay model somebody gave me, for instance, that doesn't fit my stovetop. So whatever you choose, make sure it will rest evenly across the burners. Most of them are intended to work with two burners at once.

Thanks for the info (Here I  was thinking any size - giving that it's not too small - would do).  Thanks!

Aluminum will be much lighter and rapid heating, but using High heat can permanently warp the unit.  Cast on the other hand is heavy, but basically will last forever, using whatever heat level you choose.

If you decide against cast iron, don't go with aluminum. Get stainless steel. It's more durable, holds heat better, and will last much longer than aluminum.
