SOS! Better Staub Grill Pan? 10" Square or 9"x13"?

A Staub grill pan is my destiny (glass top range made this choice easy). Only remaining question is which size is optimal: 10" square or 9"x13" (actual surface is 8.25"x13"). The 10" is substantially deeper; however, the surface area of the rectagular one is alluring. I am torn as to whether the flip handle on the 9"x13" is gimmicky.

Are they of the same quality? Any benefit one way or the other? I need help fast!

  1. I have the 9 X 13 and I love it. It's much easier to clean than the Le Creuset one, and it seems to build a patina more easily. It does hold more food, and the food is easier to flip and move about with the lower sides. It's also lighter in weight than the square one I think. The main benefit of the square one is the higher sides which contain the grease spatters better. The lower sides though make for a crispier result.
