New cookware could experience some minor sticking, if this occurs you can use a light amount of oil to alleviate the food adhesion. Overall, you'll be cooking healthier by limiting the overall amount of added oils.

2 Pour Lips

You can easily serve your dish right from the pan thanks to the two pour lips on either side of this skillet.

Versatile Cookware

This skillet is right at home on induction, ceramic, electric, and gas cooktops, in your oven, on the grill, or even over the campfire.

Rust-Free Construction

As one of Lodge's heat-enhanced cast iron products, this skillet went through a patented heat-treating process which inhibits rust for worry-free maintenance. This is not a coating, but a process that changes the molecular make-up of the iron's surface to prevent oxidation.

Easy-to-Clean Material

After use and once cooled, hand-wash your skillet and dry it immediately. Following every wash, be sure to rub a light coat of vegetable oil on the skillet to maintain optimum stick-free performance. You can use mild soapy water during washing, as long as you dry and oil the skillet immediately afterwards.

Customer Q&A Ask a Question

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.
My new cast iron feels rough in some areas. Is this normal?
Yes. This is a result of the sand casting process. With use and replenishment of the seasoning, the pan will become smoother. Unlike other types of cookware, Lodge Cast Iron only gets better with use. For concerns about roughness, it is OK to use a fine grade of sandpaper to smooth out the rough areas. Make sure to re-season the item before using.
How is Lodge's pre-seasoned cookware seasoned?
All of Lodge's pre-seasoned cookware is seasoned with soy-based vegetable oil. No peanut oil or animal fat is used.
Is this item dishwasher safe?
This heat treated cast iron piece from Lodge has been shown to survive cycles in a 2 minute commercial dishwasher with no signs of rust.

    skillet serving perfect little Lodge size cast individual great iron
  • Arrange by 
    I purchased this after eating a restaurant that uses a similar item for serving oatmeal. It keeps the oatmeal hot until you finish it. Also is very stylish and looks good on your phone able service.
    Excellent quality and size, never burns, I like to cook eggs in this frying pan. Also, it is easily placed in the dishwasher, it is very convenient.
    love this pan, it is large and heavy, but I expected that when I bought it. I make Indian crepes called Dosas on it and they come out fantastic.
    We use this pan for individual desserts and appetizers. They are excellent quality just as you would expect from lodge plus you can not beat the price anywhere else!
    This is a super cute little skillet. It would be good for single servings-- as in a single serving skillet cookie or cake with melted ice cream!
    As usual, a very high quality Lodge cast iron product. Great, and unique, multi-purpose serving skillet. I very highly recommend it! I love Lodge products!
    The Lodge 5” Pre-Seasoned Heat-Treated Cast Iron Individual Serving Skillet is heavy weight and very sturdy. It is versatile but great for eggs and bacon. I will definitely be purchasing more.
    I love these little skillets. They are the perfect size to spoil yourself with a generous helping of pizookie or skillet brownie (go all out and add a scoop of ice cream on top, it's a must). It's also a good size to share with someone else for a less-decadent sized helping. As always, Lodge has great quality products, even for small and cute "niche" items like this skillet. It would also be nice to make sides in, like individual servings of mac and cheese or brussels sprouts.
    This is a great cast to make dip in. It keeps it nice and warm. If it cheese it keeps the cheese melted for a long period of time
    This is the perfect size for the individual serving size we wanted and we will continue to use these for our sides. I would say this is the most closely with what I would see as a serving size for one person.
    I love my set of skillets. We purchased one for each member of the family. They are perfect for individual dishes, and make adorable little cornbread. Lodge will also last forever!
    I was surprised at how small this little skillet is, but I soon found good use for it with my many projects. I have a larger one that I use exclusively for my morning eggs and didn't want to disturb it for my other projects like candy making or preparation of herbs for soups and things. I now can find cast iron skillets in the Grocery Store but nothing this cute.
    I ordered this first item to test in my kitchen for skillet queso and Mac n cheese. It's a little small for the Mac side but perfect for queso
    I love this pan for eggs, I tried the 3 1/2 a bit small but this works well for breakfast sandwich's and easily sits and heats just placed around other pans. the finish is a bit rough so aging will help and a bit of butter to prevent sticking to start. lodge quality very good
    same high quality as the larger lodge cast iron, slick as glass easy to use surfaces, great for any small batch that get lost in the larger pans doesn't take much of a flame to get the job done cooking for one person these are definitely a go - to piece of cookware, I can get the same flavor, consistency etc. as with a larger batch
    Perfect little cast iron skillet. It is great for individual servings for my guests. I also enjoy using them to make mini frittatas for friends.
    I absolutely love cooking with cast iron and these little individual sized pans are perfect for the stovetop, the grill and the oven. Clean up is a breeze and there is never any sticking if you keep it seasoned.
    I bought these little skillets to try a rosemary bread recipe that I found. I needed 7 skillets for 7 people for a little gift basket. Well, when they came I had to try the recipe and they turned out wonderful and DID NOT STICK. This is the recipe: http://apple-of-my-eye.com/2015/01/14/5-ingredient-skillet-herbed-garlic-bread/# Now, on to a skillet cookie?
    How adorable are these individual serving skillets! Perfect for side dishes. I wish they were a little deeper so the portions could be a bit more generous! But overall very cute product and performs well, as can be expected from a trusted brand like Lodge
    We use these for individual cookie desserts. They make the customers very happy when they get them. Do yourself a favor and season them a few times before you start serving with them. It'll save you some time after a few uses.
    We are really liking this small round pre-seasoned serving skillet. Excellent quality and is very well made. It's perfect for serving portions. We highly recommend this.
    Great cast iron skillet at an excellent price. I use these to bake small round loaves of bread and they work very well for that purpose
    I've gifted these to teachers with chocolate chip cookie mix in a jar and recently started making soy candles in these. I have at least 4-5 on hand for various desserts, appetizers and just on hand gifts.
    Great that this comes pre-seasoned so it's ready to use right away! Perfect size for serving smaller portions and still heavy enough to be a quality pan.
    this lodge cast iron pan has served me well. I have about 25 of them that I use for serving dips and mac and cheese in.
    I had a customer order this the day I put them up. Basically she said she hers to make s'mores and the size was nice for two people to just enjoy. It was easy to use. After she told me all the details about the chocolate, i'm now incredibly motivated to order a couple of these for myself! Love having products that customers enjoy.
    The pan is already Preseassoned which prevents rust and stains on the metal. It is the perfect size for frying one egg, melting butter, making chopped bacon bits for baked potatoes, or baking chocolate chip cookie dessert with vanilla icecream just like the restaurants do!
    This skillet is a perfect size to toast spices or nuts before cooking. Simply heat up the skillet, add your spices and swirl around until the beautiful scent permeates the kitchen. Such a handy skillet that'll last forever.
