It is a stove top griddle. You set it across two burners (hobs for Brits), and heat it up.

You can use it for any griddled foods: pancakes, hash browns, grilled sandwiches, hamburgers, steak, and so on.

The little track around the edge is to capture any juice or fat that run off the surface without making a mess.

You season it like any other cast iron pan. It is probably easiest to do so in the oven. You only need to season the cooking surface.

    Yes to the griddle ... no on only seasoning the cooking surface -- you should season the whole thing to prevent it rusting. Maybe not 4 layers of seasoning, but one or preferably two to seal it well.
