great weight seems poor quality metal.
i purchased this 6 days ago i have used the pan 3 times. first to make pancakes, the skillet began to get discolored it had a rainbow effect on the bottom. i thought that was weird but i didnt preseason the pan. i scrubbed and washed the pan oiled and put away. No issues for the next few days in the cupboard, i took it out on day 5 after it arrived, made eggs for breakfast no issues washed the pan had to scrub it clean since the surface is a bit bumpy. washed and dried made fried fish 3 hours later washed and put on stove to dry. a few hours later i see the surface of the skillet covered in rust stains and smells like fish. i rewash the skillet and the final product is attached. not sure why its rusting so badly after three uses

Awesome non-stick skillets.

Verified purchase

Now I have two of these on stick skillets. One for the house and one for the trailer. Season well and treated right. Use it most mornings for my eggs. Usually wipe it down then reason. After cooking things that leave large residue I add a bit of water and scrub lightly with a wire scrub pad. Then rinse, dry over heat and re-season with vegetable oil or Flaxseed oil. I used Flaxseed oil for the original seasoning.

A New Adventure but So Far I am Enjoying it

Verified purchase

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

Verified purchase

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

Perfect sized handles, Great for Home and Camping

Verified purchase

Just what we needed for camping. The two handles are helpful and I like the fact that the main handle isnt very long which means it packs in a smaller space and doesn't weigh as much. The pan is lightly pre-seasoned but plan on adding some form of oil to it each time you use it. This is not a non-stick pan. This size is perfect for cooking 8 or so scrambled eggs all at once!

LODGE CAST IRON

Verified purchase

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

1. vegetable oil

2. I saw a program on the Travel channel showcasing the Lodge company and their process in pre-seasoning their cast iron cookware. They spray it with a vegetable oil and then bake it at a very high heat. You should use cooking oil such as some sort of vegetable oil, (sunflower, corn, peanut, olive etc) to season the cast iron cookware after each use.

4. 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.

12. 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.

13. 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/

4. 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.

6. 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.

8. 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.

9. No, that will take off the seasoning. Just use a nylon brush with hot water to clean, and then wipe some more oil on it for storage

10. NO!!! Never use soap when washing cast iron. Only use hot water and a scrubber. Immediately dry, and rub with vegetable oil. Wipe out excess with a paper towel.

11. 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.

The 12" Cast Iron Cover (L8IC3) and the 12" Tempered Glass Cover (GC12) were designed to fit the 12" skillets and the corresponding sized Dutch Ovens.
