I LOVE Lodge cast iron. I have zero complaints! The price is incredible for the quality. It’s amazing for searing, it has very good heat distribution and is incredibly durable. It’s also very versatile, I use this pan for everything! Don’t be intimidated by cast iron! The more you use it the better it gets, give Lodge a try!

Can you really say you cook if you don’t have one of these Lodge Cast Iron pans? From steaks, to spider bread, cinnamon rolls, Irish soda bread, there’s barely anything you can’t cook or bake or grill with this. The assist handle is super important. Very heavy.

The Lodge 10.25" skillet has remained more or less the same over the past 100+ years with relatively minor changes made. This piece of cookware is not like all the other modern disposable pieces of cookware in that it does require a fair bit of tender love and care. In return, this skillet will likely outlast you and several generations of your progeny. Cast iron is brittle, so it should not be subject to large impact forces or thermal shock. However, it can actually stand up to a lot of abuse. You should not expose this pan to a lot of liquid whilst not in the process of cooking or it will rust. That means that it is not dishwasher safe. Cast iron is also a relatively poor conductor of heat, but the skillet is heavy so it has a lot of thermal mass, which means that once the pan gets hot, it stays hot, which helps the pan to maintain a consistent temperature for even cooking. Cast iron cooking varies quite a bit compared to the cooking methods most us are used to now. Once you learn the quirks of the pan, however, it will serve you well.
