Lodge Cast Iron Skillet
Some home cooks prefer nonstick-coated and ceramic pans when it comes to the cooking of certain dishes. However, true-blue home cooks and seasoned chefs trust only a cast iron skillet to accomplish the toughest jobs in the kitchen. And if you’re like the many who loves cast iron skillets, but dislike the process of seasoning the pan, then Lodge’s Cast Iron Skillet is a great choice.
Available in various sizes, the Lodge comes to you already pre-seasoned so you can start cooking right after taking it out of its packaging. There is no need to go through the tedious process of baking a thin layer of oil onto the surface of the pan. All that’s needed now is the correct care and maintenance so that it will last a lot longer than your lifetime.
Home cooks can feel more confident with every Lodge skillet that they bring home. After all, the company has been forging these long-lasting skillets and pans for more than 120 years. Having been established in 1896, it is not surprising if the very first pans that Lodge made are still as functional as ever. These pieces of cookware are not only durable, they also provide maximum versatility.
Put them in an oven and watch your pies and casseroles bake and broil to perfection. Place them on an open fire and they will dazzle you with their sizzling capabilities. And if you’ve always wanted to achieve that perfect sear on your slab of steak, then Lodge’s Cast Iron Skillet has you covered.
There is not really that much of a secret to this Lodge product. It looks the same as any other cast iron pan on the market. However, try to lift it and you will recognize its one true strength over the others. Its 10.5-inch model comes in at a hefty 5.67 pounds. That is about twice as heavy as the other cast iron skillets on store shelves. What this means is that you’ve got solid iron forming the core of the Lodge.
Known for its amazing heat retention, cast iron skillets make the ideal tools for searing, frying, broiling, braising, baking, and sautéing. Whatever dish that you may have in mind, this skillet from Lodge is sure to deliver magical recipes.
What makes the Lodge Cast Iron Skillet different is the inclusion of an assist handle. It’s not much, but it sure can make the difference.
