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.
Does this cast iron skillet come ready to use?
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 burned off.

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!

    cast iron pan skillet seasoning cooking season seasoned cook great

    It is hard to find unseasoned cast iron nowadays as seasoned cast iron is the main kind available. If you're looking for unseasoned, this is the pan for you!

    I recently purchase this cast iron skillet because I wanted a pineapple upside down cake like my granny use to make and of course she use to only this type of skillet. And it came out prefect and brought back so many memories.

    This pan is a workhorse, but you need to take care of it. I season it every time I use it and I wash it gently to ensure that I do not remove the seasoning. Its so wide, which means you can do a lot of portions at one time. I love cast iron cooking an this pan is great.

    I wanted a 12 inch cast iron pan that was not preseasoned so I could season it myself, this one is fine, nice solid heavy cast iron, with thick heavy duty handle, it is not seasoned, and they said you can sand it with fine sandpaper if you want, there is a line on one side of it that may look like a crack but it does not go all the way through and I think it is just a line from the molded process etc..not a problem, I sanded it with fine sand paper and in the video and images you will see it is smooth I also just oiled it a bit but have not put it in the oven to season it just yet.. will do that tomorrow..love this pan.. perfect size.. I like the dual pour spouts..

    This skillet was a disappointment. Now I know why it was so cheap. I opened it up and took it out of the box and it was already discolored and peeling. I would recommend investing your money in something of better quality

    I use this pan daily when cooking at home and I can't say enough good things about it. It heats up evenly, the pre-season was well done and everything i've cooked in it has had the perfect sear. This skillet will make your time cooking a lot easier.

    You are making me select a rating, so I had to give it a one star, but I actually am giving this item ZERO stars. I am VERY DISAPPOINTED in this item and would NOT recommend this to anyone. I do not feel this is actual cast iron material.

    i'm pretty new to cast iron cooking. The pan seasoning process definitely was a bit time consuming, but it's absolutely essential and necessary for the best results. I use these for steaks, chicken, bacon and sometimes vegetables. I don't trust myself to cook eggs on these just yet, but I've read that you definitely can cook eggs on cast iron. It's something I'll soon try.

    What can you say about this, it is a Lodge cast iron pan. It comes pre-seasoned and is very smooth. I use mine all week long to roast veggies, cook steaks and anytime I want to cook on the BBQ at the same time Im grilling meat. These are impossible to ruin and will last a lifetime. They are ready to use as soon as they arrive.

    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.

    from Toni's Depot Posted on

    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.
