Compared to more expensive cast iron, LODGE is a bit rougher where pan texture is concerned. It advertises that it is pre-seasoned, but LODGE said it is NOT. Therefore, many hours of prepping were involved before I fried the first egg - that stuck. I knew I would need to season more aggressively due to the roughness of the cast iron. Do not expect a smooth, mirrored finish as comes on high end cast iron. This is more rustic. After heating it to smoking on my stove, I applied olive oil sparingly then rubbed it in using a paper towel. I did this at least 20 times and the paper towel would shred due to the coarseness of the pan. After scraping it down with a metal spatula (many times) and re-seasoning many MORE times, I finally had the skillet of my dreams. Eggs might not slide around like they are on ice, but they do not stick now. Clean-up (unless you make gravy) requires a wipe-down with a dry cloth (since I stopped using paper towels) lol

This is a really affordable cast iron skillet. Word of caution, the heat distribution doesn't seem to be even -- it gets really hot in the center of the pan. However, I'm cooking on an electric stove and would probably have better results with gas. I tried to fry an egg in it this weekend and it stuck pretty bad, but I think the pan just needs to be seasoned more. Overall, I think it will meet my needs, I love the price, and I'm looking forward to "breaking it in"! :)

Ever since I've taken up cooking, I've discovered that I have a classic, old fashioned outlook. I don't care for this 30 minutes or less pre-packaged food that everyone else does these days. I like cooking when it takes time and concentration because it always tastes great. Until I got this cast iron skillet, I never realized how good food really could be. I don't know how it does it, but food cooked in this skillet is much better. It doubles the flavor and gives it a really hearty taste. I could not be happier with this product. Even though maintenance can be kind of a pain for the first few months, it gets easier with each use and eventually it's easier than cleaning any other pan. My favorite things to make are breakfast foods (bacon, pancakes, eggs), steaks (sear on both sides and finish in the oven), and fried chicken (one of the best uses I have found for this pan). It's no wonder why cast iron cookware has been around for centuries: it works and works well!

You would not believe I bought these last year and maybe even longer than that and NEVER used them. I used it last night to fry some chicken. Simply because a friend was talking about them. I was shocked and awed and took me back to me child hood when no one could make fried chicken like your mother. =) ( didnt know it was the skillet) It was the most beautiful chicken I ever had. I decided to research information on cast iron skillets. They are a healthy way of cooking. The maintenance to me doesnt compare to other cooking utensils in which I have to poor comet in and soak them over night to dissolve the grease. I used some scalding hot water and a scrub brush. Sprayed and massaged with some pam on the inside perimeter and put on the stove on low for 15 minutes. It looks so beautiful. I just seasoned another grill bottom cast iron skillet that I will be using from now on. I also have a griddle stove top grill/griddle that I have used and always loved that. I am fully on the cast iron band wagon.

I love this pan! I actually bought 2 of the 10.25 inch pans (one for my son for Christmas and one for me) in the store (they didn't have any 12 inch ones when I was there). I used mine to fry up bacon (is there anything other than bacon that should be fried the first time using a cast iron skillet? I think not...) and it was great, but I wanted/needed a bigger skillet as well. So I decided to see if I could order them online and have them sent to me. Not only were they available "in store", I was sent text messages once they were ready to be picked up. No shipping, no fuss, no muss. I went the next day, parked and walked to the back of the store where I showed the email I was told to bring and was given the 2 skillets. Couldn't have been easier! And I love this skillet just as much and so does my son! Lodge is the way to go!

My daughter has consistently low iron blood work, so I thought I would purchase a few cast iron items to start, and plan on changing over all my cookware! I feel good cooking on cast iron. I treated the skillet first by covering it in oil and baking at 300 degrees for hours. The skillet came out with a beautiful glaze on it. When I am finished cooking, I clean it out, put it on a burner on low, to dry any water off the pan, then re-coat in oil, and leave on the burner for another 5-10 minutes. It may all sound like a lot of work, but I really feel this pan is worth it. Once this skillet was treated, the glaze on it is like non stick wear, without nasty chemicals being used like Teflon. I have cooked anything from roasted vegetables, to fried chicken, and bacon and eggs, and everything slides off the skillet when I am done, and clean up only takes a wipe of a dish cloth, and everything I cook in this skillet is more nutritional, infused with natural iron. I highly recommend, and Walmart brings this to us at a fraction of the cost!

I always thought a cast iron skillet would be a lot of trouble and food would stick to it. I finally bought this one. Since I've had it, I've used it for than my large Tfal. I love it. It fries evenly and does NOT stick. We've also made homemade pizza in it. It does take a little more time to cool down so you can clean it.

I have many older collectable skillets and several lodge cast iron items. I enjoy cooking with my older cookware because it gives me a sense of familial and national history. But, deep in the back of my mind I am concerned about damaging them, so I bought this skillet. I received it almost a week before it was expected; washed it and fried some chicken, and boy was it good! And, there was absolutely no concern about damaging the skillet, which made the experience even more pleasurable. The 12 inch skillet is heavier than most vintage and antique cast iron and it is not as smooth as the oldies. However, this finish is definitely not as rough as many of the competitors, especially some of the imported stuff. The skillet heated evenly and it was roomy enough for three large thighs. The 12 inch Lodge skillet was flat and sat evenly on the burner - some other brand new imports that I have seen, and damaged oldies, will wobble on the burner because the base is not flat - it is a keeper. Now, go on out and get yours before inflation makes the price of this skillet more expensive.

got it on 2/16 and have used it every day. It is so much fun and so cool! I just started cooking more and have had difficulty getting used to stainless steel and non-stick (the temperatures can't be too high with those things). I was nervous foods will stick and they have just a little so far. I gather this is a little bit of a fine art, but "season" it after each use, that means paper towel a lil oil on it; Vegetable Oil. I see it is already forming a coating of it's own! It comes w some instructions, oil it a little more heavily at first. God it is cheap- $20! It is heavy, but strong and they say built to last a lifetimes. I believe it. But it heats hot and evenly and I think food tastes better coming off it. I hope to stay with it and see it through. I feel more like I am cooking the right way with it. I wasn't really concerned with the health hazards that are sometimes suggested w stainless steel and non-stick, though maybe a little in the back of my mind. The original way to go, and cheap!

This pan is amazing! I was a little skeptical at first, but with the limited budget of a grad student I just couldn't afford the pricier "kitchen gadget store" models. I'm so glad I didn't pay more! Works beautifully for fried chicken, and does a splendid job in the oven with Food Network host Alton Brown's Pan Seared Rib Eye recipe (you've got to try it in the winter when you're crazing a great steak but it's just to cold to grill)... For the amount of money it's saved me on going to a steak house or great fried chicken joint it's been well worth the money and extra time required for maintaining it. I learned the hard way... Make sure you do your research on how to properly care for cast iron before bringing this baby home and using it for the first time. Mine has been used and abused for the past three years and it's definitely starting to show... I've been told though that it should re-season beautifully and be good to go again for years to come. And just an FYI - The Lodge 12-inch cast iron skillet just received America's Test Kitchen's top score out of all the cast iron skillets they reviewed, including several models sold 'exclusively' at those fancy kitchen stores for around $100.

I got tired of all the so called "non-stick miracle pans." They didn't work. Over the years, I had heard of all the health benefits that came with cooking in cast iron. So, I did some research. I was happy to see Walmart carrying the Lodge brand and that it's made in the good 'ol U.S.A.! My brother filled me in about cast iron cooking and even though this skillet is pre-seasoned, he strongly urged me to season it once more. It was easy enough. Lots of videos on youtube.com, even from Lodge themselves! The next morning, i made fresh home-fried potatoes, bacon, and eggs...and nothing sticked! That evening, I made a chicken and rice recipe for the oven. i mixed all the ingredients, placed it in the skillet, and popped it in the oven at 350 degrees for an hour and 20 minutes. Wow! Again, the food was great and nothing sticked. Clean up was a breeze! Hot water and a stiff brush. Then thoroughly dry and apply a few drops of vegetable oil to keep it in good shape. I plan to buy the 10 inch skillet. You can't beat the price or the quality! (And, I'm putting all those teflon pans in storage.)

How many other products will you buy that will last yours and your childrens' lifetimes, you can use every day, does its job as well or better than any other product of its type, is made in the usa, and costs under 20 bucks? It's funny to look at cast iron products at Williams-Sonoma that cost over a hundred dollars, and are absolutely no better at cooking than a Lodge skillet for 18 bucks! If I could only have one pan to prepare meals with, it would be this skillet. You can cook literally anything with it. I seasoned mine again with vegetable shortening when I first brought it home, and give it a coating of veg or olive oil whenever I scrub it out. Keep it dry (heat it up on the stove top after cleaning) and never, ever, use soap. It's not needed. Heat and oil are the skillets best friends. Your skillet will only perform better with age.

I absolutely love this skillet. It is perfect in every way. I have used it several times for searing fish, blackening salmon, making hash browns, potstickers, and several other meals. It is truly amazing and I have not used my old faithful non-stick skillets since this baby arrived. I do not know how I lived so long without it and why I waited so long to purchase it. I have no issues and hope anyone on the fence will purchase it because it is pretty good. I am lazy and not the most meticulous when it comes to cookware, however, I do clean this pan, spray it with cooking spray, wipe it out as mentioned because I do want to preserve its effectiveness and longevity. If you are considering a cast iron skillet, this is a great pan and I use it on both my 14 inch burner and my 8 inch. It maintains its heat well and I have not complaints.

My only adverse observation is it claims it comes "pre-seasoned". being a 7th generation native Texan, found it not to be seasoned proper. My advice, buy it, before you even try to use it, get some bacon grease, smear it all around inside the skillet, add a little pepper if you truly like flavor in your fried foods, then bake it at 400° for 45 minutes or so, let it air cool on stove top before using. If you wash it after use, don't let it air dry, immediately put on the stove top on low heat and leave it until it's fully dried, that way the soap won't get into the seasoning. Every so often you'll need to re-season it. You can bake fantastic cornbread in this thing.

It seems like a good product. I wanted a preseasoned pan because I had such a hard time seasoning a pan the last time I tried. It said it might need some extra oil the first few times and it might need more seasoning. I figured bacon would be a good first product because it's so greasy. The bacon stuck really bad to the pan, I had to scrape it off the bottom and those spots where it stuck were terribly sticky. After the bacon I fried a couple burgers in the pan, they got that nice crusty outside like you only get from a skillet like this or from a really nice restaurant grill. The burgers stuck a little bit but nothing serious. Then I fried up the rest of the hamburger to use in other dishes, that fried up nicely no sticking. I think it cleaned up nicely, I poured out the grease and wiped it out with paper towel, I didn't want to use water on it again afraid it will set me back. I'll have to see how it goes on the use.

  • A. Here's the best info on seasoning cast iron. On a new pan, I do it 4 or 5 times at 500-degrees F. You don't want to go much over 500 because at 900 or so all of the finish will burn off. I use flaxseed oil but I believe raw linseed oil will work just as well. It's available at most any hardware store - just make sure it is fresh and raw and pure and cold pressed. http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/01/a-science-based-technique-for-seasoning-cast-iron/

  • A. The Lodge 12" Cast Iron Skillet, as with the entire Lodge Logic collection, is electrostatically coated with a proprietary vegetable oil, and cured at high temperatures to allow the oil to deeply penetrate the surface of the cast iron. To maintain the seasoning, simply rub the clean skillet with cooking oil.

  • A. I used Crisco vegetable oil. I coated the entire skillet (inside and out) with a nice light coat. Then, Placed it in an oven at 350 degrees for an hour and half. I let it cool in the oven and removed. After each use, I wash it with hot water and and a stiff brush. Dry thoroughly, then add a few drops of vegetable oil to the inside to keep it in good shape for next use. I'm told, if cared for in this way, the non-stick quality gets better and better.

I heard that USA made cast iron was pre-seasoned with food grade wax, like non-organic apples. However, people smart enough to avoid fluoride and avoid teflon would not want this wax LOL.

  • A. No, Lodge does not use wax to pre-season their products. They use a vegetable oil derived from soy bean.

  • A. Although the LODGE is described as "PRE-SEASONED" I contacted the company who said it is NO LONGER seasoning their skillets. You will be in charge of doing that, and Olive oil is what I use with great results. I tried CRISCO, but it made the skillet pan sticky to the touch and who wants that?

  • A. I used to 'season' mine with olive oil. Now I just wash the thing and dry it and use the olive oil when I am ready to cook in it.

  • A. no generally the 'season' technique of a cast iron pan is with oilive oil. First time use: spread thinly, cook over stove top cool wash with sponge and dish detergent and rinse DRY on Stove Top flame for 1 minute. Store in oven to keep it dry. Pan will never rust if cleaned and dried in this way. Will last a lifetime.

  • A. I have to ask - why are you smart if you avoid fluoride? You need fluoride for proper formation of teeth enamel. Avoiding fluoride is not a good idea. Cast iron is seasoned with oil and salt - not a wax. that is ridiculous.

  • A. No. Doing so will remove the seasoned cooking surface. Cast iron should be only washed by hand with only water and NO soap and immediately dried to prevent rusting. A light coat of cooking oil is recommended between uses to maintain the seasoned cooking surface.

  • A. no hand wash with sponge and dish detergent, rinse, then DRY on Stove Top flame for 1 minute Turn off flame Let pan cool. Store in oven is probably best to keep it dry. This preserves the pan and it will never rust if cleaned and dried this way.

  • A. No. It will rust and have to be cleaned and reseasoned. Cast iron skillets are easy to clean. I wipe mine clean, boil it, blue it, and season with granola oil. Takes me maybe 5 minutes. It is recommended to use an oil with higher flash point than olive oil.

  • A. No! You want to protect the seasoning. I prefer to wash with hot water and a sponge, but if I need more cleaning, I use table salt and rub it in with a paper towel. Make sure to rinse all salt away and dry thoroughly.
