There’s a time and a place for non-stick pans, but if you’re ready to break out of your Teflon shell, cast iron is the place to start, and Lodge’s is impulse priced.
Founded in Tennessee more than 120 years ago and still family owned and operated, Lodge knows a thing or two about cast iron. Their most ubiquitous and essential item, whether you’re in front of the stove or in front of the campfire, is their cast iron skillet. Weighty, pre-seasoned, and much easier to clean than you think, the Lodge skillet is available in a variety of diameters, configurations, and editions, but always at an eminently affordable price point.
A Lodge cast iron skillet is the perfect item to broaden your cooking skills, or to pair with your sous-vide for a finishing sear, and makes a great gift for an aspiring chef. Be sure to grab a silicone handle grip and chain mail scrubber (seriously) while you’re shopping.
