Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet


The cast iron skillet is the first cooking tool you should buy. Cast iron skillets are inexpensive, have a non-stick surface, retains and evenly distributes heat, and lasts for a long time. Collectors hunt for cast iron skillets that are over a hundred years old to be used, not to hang up on their wall. Cast iron skillets are the most versatile tool in the kitchen that can be use for searing, sautéing, frying, baking, and braising.

A cast iron skillet we recommend is the Lodge Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet. This skillet is made in the USA and comes in a variety of sizes. We have a 8 inch skillet and it virtually can be used for all food preparations. This skillet has been seasoned by being sprayed with vegetable oil and then baked on high temperature to create a easy-release cooking surface.

The cast iron skillet will age well with time. As the skillet is used, the oils will seep into the surface, creating/recreating the seasoning that makes the surface non-sticking. Also note that a proper burger needs to be cooked in a cast iron skillet, since heat is evenly distributed and will brown the meat properly.
