Customer questions about this product
- How can I properly care for cast iron surfaces?
- In order to prevent unwanted build-up of oils, grease, and food, surfaces should be cleaned after use while still slightly warm. Harsh chemicals or scouring pads should not be used—only hot water and a cloth or sponge are needed. If some areas require extra cleaning, a mild scouring pad can be used. Please refer to our Pan Seasoning Guide for further information on properly cleaning and seasoning cast iron surfaces.

Cast iron skillets have several advantages over other types of cookware. First, cast iron is an ideal heat conductor. Because it heats evenly and consistently with no "hot spots," foods cook better with less chance of scorching.
Additionally, cast iron cookware will also last almost indefinitely with proper care. When seasoned properly, foods will not stick! You can cook healthier because you don't have to use lots of butter or cooking spray. Finally, no specialized utensils are required: cast iron cookware can go from stovetop to oven to table with nothing but potholders!
Please Note: This cast iron skillet has a protective bee's wax coating which should be removed before the skillet is used. This is done by exposing the skillet to an open flame until the bee's wax coating is burnt off.

I purchased my first one of these in August 2013. It's now a bit over a year later and I've purchased three - a second for me, and a third that I seasoned and gave as a gift. I cook *everything* in this thing, and it never fails to be up to the task. I've thrown all kinds of things at this thing from one-skillet quinoa/curry/seafood dinners to beautiful pan-sears for proteins (steak and salmon are my most common go-tos) to frittatas to deep-frying hand-cut french fries (that was a bit of a challenge, but in small batches it was totally doable) and am always thrilled with the results. For someone like me with a gas range but no grill, cast iron is a lifesaver. Some technical comments: As mentioned in the description, the skillet comes unseasoned and with a fine coating of wax to prevent rust, and the wax needs to be removed before you can season the pan. With my first skillet, I heated it a bit and scrubbed it with water and a green pad to get the wax off... but that was a pain. The next two I just put upside down in a hot oven (~500 degrees F) for a couple hours with some aluminum foil on the rack below. Wax melted off, aluminum foil caught the drippings, and the pan was ready for seasoning. I *highly* recommend just seasoning with shortening. I've tried flax seed oil, one of the semi-current fads on the internet, and the results were horrible. Shiny, slick, and superficially nice looking, but the seasoning was brittle and flaked off after one use. My shortening-seasoned skillet has been bulletproof and the seasoning just keeps getting better and better. Use shortening. Also, like most modern cast iron, the surface of this pan is slightly rough, not polished and smooth. You can either grind this down yourself if you're super picky... or just use the thing. Over time, the seasoning will build up and the surface of the pan will become smoother and even more non-stick. I'll post a picture when I can of the difference between my skillet that's been in use for >1 year and my brand new one. The difference in surface smoothness, purely from seasoning build up, is frankly astounding. Bottom line: it's big, it's heavy, it's reasonably priced, and it's bulletproof. I'd recommend this thing to anyone.

This is a great skillet. Its not fancy but it gets the job done. Very heavy which is great. We only needed one but I would not be afraid to order another one.
Ross T. from Toni's Depot Posted on 04/17/2014
It might be heavy as can be, but you can't improve on this pan for sheer workhorse results. Be sure not to use soap. Just wash under hot water with a nylon scrubber, and dry on the stove top, or simply wipe out with a towel. Every once in a while, rub with a little vegetable oil (never a silicone based cooking spray), then wipe out excess and heat on the stove or in the oven to re-season.
