Quality made in the USA
This is a very well made seasoned cast iron skillet large enough to cook almost anything. Well made and manufactured in the USA. Boy American made products whenever you can.
A New Adventure but So Far I am Enjoying it
This is the first cast iron pan I have owned but so far I am enjoying using it. Food doesn't stick and it is easy to clean. The pan, itself, is a high quality product and the price was very reasonable. I definitely recommend getting a cast iron pan versus a non stick product -- kept having to buy new ones as the bottom kept curving due to heat.
Cast iron review from a first time buyer
Great weight to it. Food did not stick. I followed the instructions on arrival: 1) Washed well with my green Dawn detergent and water due to covid-19. 2)Dried well with a paper towel within EVERY SINGLE CREVIS. 3)Warmed it up slowly on the counter top to remove imbedded water. 4)Added a small drop of vegetable oil
This was a great deal! I especially, love that this has the extra handle. I haven't used it yet but i grew up using these pans and nothing fries better! Looking forward to using it!
Love my cast iron skillet
I wanted to use this pan for a while before writing a review so that I would have some experience to speak on. I bought this skillet about 3 months ago, after much reading and research on how to use and care for it. As everyone else has already said, this skillet turns out a far better meal than any Teflon coated pan. Searing and deglazing work beautifully in cast iron. I've cooked all kinds of things in this skillet by now, including frying foods that normally require a deep fryer. I've also made meals that start on the stove and finish in the oven, which is one of the great benefits of cast iron. Even though the Lodge products come read-to-use (pre-seasoned), I washed and seasoned mine anyway. I brushed on a light coating of canola oil (inside and out) and put it upside down on the oven rack with a cookie sheet on a lower rack to catch any drips, in a 350 degree oven for an hour, then left it to sit in there until it was cooled. As for continued maintenance, instead of washing it last like I used to do with other pans, I wash it first. I towel dry it, then set it back on a low-medium burner to heat/dry completely for about 10 mins while doing the other dishes. Thorough drying is critical to prevent rusting. Then a little canola oil on a paper towel, give it a real light coat inside, leave it on the burner another 15 mins while I finish the rest of the kitchen clean up. Really isn't that much extra work, honest. Just a minor adjustment to your clean-up routine. Definitely worth it! I love this skillet, I won't ever be without one now. I also bought the smaller 8" skillet and recently the double dutch oven. Cast iron cooks differently than Teflon, so take a little time to learn the techniques (lower heat is needed with cast iron, I over cooked a few things in the beginning). Don't be discouraged the first time or two if your food sticks just a little, the non-stick surface takes a few meals to really develop nicely, but it will. So cook a batch of bacon, maybe some burgers, and wait a few times before doing delicate things like eggs. I couldn't be happier with the Lodge product in general, Kudos to Walmart for a GREAT price and nice quality for that price. And thumbs up for the Site-To-Store service!
LODGE CAST IRON
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
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.
Not quite happy with the product! Could be defect
So far, used this skillet twice. After the first use, i hand washed, dried and coated with oil. I stored it. The next time i was going to use it, it had brown spots in the pan. So, i wiped it off, thinking it is not a big deal. After the second use, i did the same thing - hand washed, dried and coated with oil. I inspected it today and again had the brown spots. What is causing this? Looks like a defect in the product that was shipped to me. Wondering if i can exchange it for another one.
This came with broken handle. Walmart did give me a full refund. Did not want replacement. Cannot be good item if a cast iron handle can break right off!!!
