This is my first cast iron skillet but it certainly isn’t my last. I am extremely happy with the craftsmanship of the skillet. I’m going to buy another smaller one to take camping with me.
My husband and I got this as a gift from our wedding registry with a few other Lodge cast iron pieces, and we absolutely love it. If you don't have one already, you absolutely have to add it to your wedding registry--it's an absolute must. We use it all the time, and we definitely prefer cooking with it when compared to non-stick, stainless steel, or ceramic frying pans.
My fiance wanted to switch to cast iron after using our elderly neighbor's hand-me-down decades-old dutch oven. It's wonderfully historic, and still flawless. We love that the Lodge line is made in the USA. Our chemist neighbor also pointed out that if metal leaches from these pans, reasonable amounts of iron naturally occur in the food chain, as opposed to aluminum or chemicals used in non-stick surfaces. So, it's theoretically safer. I think of all the money we've put into cookware over the years & gag. We'd have been better off just asking for granny's old heavy-weights & putting another few decades on the indestructibles. The only drawback is the need to season & never leave a speck of water undried, as it's an invitation to rust. Not much to ask, I say. My fiance does still use non-stick for the kids' school-day eggs, though. Sometimes expedient trumps all. And, for single-handed veggie flipping, he uses another Macy's unbeatable, the Cuisinart 14-inch stainless-steel wok/pot I also gave him for Christmas. (I gots to keep my man kitchen-happy so's he keeps keepin' me out of the kitchen.) Thanks, again, Macy's; together, we make a healthy fam!
I've always wanted a cast iron skillet and for this price, it is a good investment.
I really enjoy this skillet it cooks everything well and as long I do proper maintenance it cooks perfectly. I have another one and I love it. This one was a gift for my boyfriend.
I use this mainly for deep frying and pan searing meats and fish. It heats so evenly and for the accidents - even charred food is easy to wash off
great!!!!! love it. would recommend. buy it. On line
These are the best pans ever! They will last a lifetime if you take care of them. They only get better with age. Ask Grandma!
