The Lodge cast iron skillet is the epitome of what a frying pan should be. It is tough, versatile with a classic design.
We really liked cooking with the Lodge for its steadiness and were surprised at just how nonstick a well-seasoned, high-quality cast iron pan could be. With just a little butter or oil, eggs and pancakes were releasing from this pan with no residue at all.
It is a bit heavy and does require general cast iron maintenance after use, but we think that this pan is worth a little extra care. We wish that the handle didn’t get so hot, but you just have to remember to use a towel or oven mitt when moving the pan around.

At a decent price point, the Lodge really is an all-purpose skillet that can cook just about anything. It is versatile enough to use on the stove, in the oven and even outside on the grill. You will love slapping a steak on a sizzling hot cast iron pan to watch it sear in the flavor.
