because it will stick like glue and cleaning is not simpler like other foods. Maybe smell too.

I cook on a cast iron pan, so I know how cast iron handles heat. Cast iron retains heat very well, but it's still not good at dispersing it evenly. Even on my cast iron pan, the part above the burners will still be hotter than the pan around it; it's more even if you preheat the pan first, but there's still that difference.

Maybe it just seems like it from the pictures, but this griddle seems thinner than a typical cast iron pan, even if heavier than, say, an aluminum pan. So I'm worried it would be even worse at dispersing the heat evenly.
Cast iron is a very poor conductor of heat. That's why it takes a while to heat up and holds heat so well. A thin pan will conduct even less so you'd wind up with a significant heat difference between the edges and the middle. As tempting as dirt cheap cast iron is, between them looking really thin in the pictures and potentially questionable metal content, I think I have to pass on these.

One thing I've found is that when you get new cast iron, sand the cooking surface until it's really smooth then reseason it. Nothing will ever stick.

Technically, yes, but you will scratch the F out of your cooktop. You will want enameled cast iron for that purpose--Lodge has some, and so does Tramontina at the value price range. Staub or Le Creuset for $$. If you want bare (seasoned) cast iron on ceramic or induction without scratching, you need to look at brands like FINEX. Pricey to say the least--but really good stuff.
does the enamel negate the iron leaching benefit ??

Isn't the point of a properly seasoned cast iron pan to be able to cook things like eggs & have them slide right off?

Yes, but it needs a bit of oil each time and I don't like oil with eggs. Personal preference.

I think if you properly season the pan before use (using oil) you don't need to use oil while cooking your eggs. Once done cooking, you simply season your pan again (with oil) so that it's ready for the next use. I think that's the whole point of using cast iron for cooking.

Thanks, I'll try to follow the procedure.

If I already own 3 cast iron skillets 8" 10" and 12" ; is there any point in picking this up?

I agree with those saying not to buy. Think about it: is a savings of $10 really worth adding lead to your diet?
In addition, this is the type of item that is easy to buy american. Better to go that way if you are from the U.S.

Not for me, made in China crap that flakes and includes who knows what contaminates. If you can spend more, you won't regret getting Lodge - also sold at WM and manufactured in a small community in TN. Sure, it costs more but it will last your lifetime and you're helping support American jobs. Been using it for decades and no issues at all, gets better with time. Just use some course salt and water to clean it...never use soap on cast iron.
Honestly I hate lodge pans. All new cast iron is shit to me because it's so rough. I like older smooth bottom pans.

It's no help. The pans are too rough. You need to sandblast it or smooth it out then season. It'll be great then.

Using smooth bottom ones are the only solution. Buy an old one or find out how to buff it.

If you want it glass smooth you can hand sand it (harder with the lines in the bottom of this one) then re-season it. This roughness is pretty common among most all recently manufactured cast iron pans at this price point.
