Beside this, what is a plancha used for?
A plancha is a common flat-top griddle used in Spanish cooking that combines high-temperature searing with a small amount of smoking.
Also, is a griddle better than a grill? The difference is obvious. Griddles have smooth, flat surfaces. Grills have distinctively raised ridges if it is a solid plate, or bars with openings in between allowing food to cook directly over the heat source. Grilling uses higher temperatures than griddle cooking.
Moreover, what is plancha style?
A Popular Method in Spanish Cuisine In Spanish cooking, a la plancha (pronounced ah-la-plahn-chah) means "grilled on a metal plate." Recipes that are a la plancha are traditionally cooked on a round, flat metal plate. This flattop grill is like a griddle but instead of having a square or rectangular shape, it is round.
