    Pancakes, eggs, and bacon somehow taste extra hearty when cooked in a heavy cast-iron skillet. Cast iron creates superior heat retention, heats evenly, and loves a campfire, unlike flimsier pans. Fry up a mess of catfish, roast a chicken, or bake an apple crisp in this generous 12-inch pan that features two handles for heavy lifting, and two subtle side lips for pouring. While the skillet comes preseasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated with vegetable oil before use. Whether used in a kitchen or camp, this virtually indestructible pan should last for generations. --Ann Bieri

    We use this pan for everything except eggs. We''ve had this one for quite a while now so I feel like i can give a longer term review. The biggest thing I don''t like about this pan is that it didn''t feel like it came sufficiently pre- seasoned, so we looked up some videos and instructions and did it. Now it feels like the more we use the pan the better it gets. My husband and I both just Love this thing. The only thing it doesn''t seem to cook right is eggs. There seems to be a bit of a learning curve when it comes to cast iron, but once you figure it out, it''s very enjoyable to cook on and the food comes out delicious.

    Tips on how we seasoned it: there are lots of opinions on which oil to use but we just went with plain ole vegetable oil. We made sure the pan was clean, then covered it with a thin layer of oil. We put it in the oven as preheated it until 475 degrees. Once it came to temperature, we turned it off and just let the pan sit in there until it cooled. The goal is to "burn off" the oil, so bring it past the smoking point until it gets dry and hard on the pan. That''s what makes it coat well. We did this 3 or 4 times, but the more you use it the better nonstick surface you''ll have.

    Tips: Don''t wash with soap, it''ll strip it. We purchased a chainmail scrubber that we love to use. Seems to help smooth it out a little too, but that might be in my head. When I clean it I only use the scrubber and hot water. The more I use the pan the easier it gets to clean.
    When you finish cleaning it, don''t leave it wet. It''ll rust. We just put it back on the stove with the burner on until it''s dry. Easy.
    Keep in mind that cast iron doesn''t exactly heat evenly, but it holds heat well. This just means that you have to sufficiently preheat the pan before you use to ensure even cooking.

    Overall I love this pan! It just gets better every time I use it.

    I bought this skillet a little while ago and I was surprised how rough the surface finish was. It felt like sandpaper. Given all the positive reviews, I was expecting higher quality. After some research I found instructional videos on how to grind these Lodge skillets smooth, but who has time for that? I found two other American producers of cast iron that come with a smooth finish right out of the box: Stargazer and Finex. The Finex looks interesting but I went with the Stargazer because it''s fully machined at half the price. Seems like I made the right call. The design is great, the surface finish is super smooth, and it cooks like a champ. If you''re reading this review, do yourself a favor and pass on the Lodge. Go with the Stargazer instead. It''s well worth the investment.

    This is my third lodge skillet. I typically use my 12 inch for everything, but I live alone, and this is perfect for eggs or grilled cheese. My biggest tip that I can give for lodge preseasoned cast iron---"wash it" first. I don''t use soap, but I use a stainless steel scrubber and hot water and thoroughly scrub the whole thing inside and out. I then dry it over medium heat on the stove, put a thin layer of oil all over the pan with a paper towel and then "bake" the cast iron in the oven at 450 degrees until it starts to smoke and stink. It kind of smells chemically. Once I smell it, I turn the stove off, let the cast iron cool in the oven, take it out, and it''s ready to use. It may take a couple times before it''s perfectly nonstick. Between each use I scrub it with the stainless steel scrubber and hot water and dry over medium heat on the stove. I rub more oil on it after drying about every 10th time I use it, or when it looks dry. I have never had to rebake it. My twelve inch has been perfect for years and this one is well on its way. So low maintenance. Great, heavy quality.

Lots of people are complaining about the food sticking. I''ve used my skillets for cookies and eggs (mountain man breakfast), and it hasn''t caused me any issues. In fact, my eggs didn''t stick at all! (I did use butter in the pan, but I assume that''s normal). Overall, great. I think I''ll order 2 more to use with friends over!

I also really like the fact that this is made in the USA. American made products are just not easy to find anymore. But really, the proof in the quality of this cast iron was obvious when i made sweet potato corn bread and baked it in the oven in this skillet. It came out so nice and brown and moist. I''m enclosing pictures, so you can see the nice way it cooked the corn bread on both the top and bottom of the bread. Sorry, the pan in the first picture is a bit oily looking....I had cooked in the pan and then washed and oiled it. If you like this review, please click the helpful button under the review.

    At 58 years old I grew up using iron cookware and prefer to cook with it whenever possible. I have spent as much as $150 on a top name brand "non-stick" skillet only to be donated a year later to the thrift store! ~Never again.

    I needed a new skillet and decided to go with another iron skillet and purchase this one from Amazon. It arrived in a couple of days and in perfect condition. As with all my cast iron I treated it the same way out of the box. I scrubbed it with hot water and coarse kosher salt, rinsed, then set on a burner and turned the burner on low, then gradually increased the heat until fully dry. While the pan is hot, I take a little bit of Crisco Shortening (about a tablespoon) and drop it in the pan, using a pasty brush I spread the melted shortening over the full interior surface, then I take a paper towel and wipe out any excess (but not too dry you want it to have a slight sheen to it), then I rub the outside of the pan, including the handle, sides and bottom. *note* Do this every time you''ve used your cast iron cookware, and you will never be disappointed in its performance.

    NEVER - Use soap or detergent on your iron cookware you''ll ruin the seasoning with soap. If you do have a sticking when the pan has cooled add hot water only, allow to soak for about 15 minutes or so and clean as usual. Properly cared for your cookware should last your lifetime, be virtually non-stick and extremely low maintenance.

    NEVER - Allow your cookware to air dry. This will cause rust and you will most likely need to scrub with steel wool, rinse, dry and re-season and you may to repeat this process many times to return it to a desirable condition.

    Iron cookware can crack if exposed to extreme temperature changes / hot to cold. Food should never be stored in iron, it is for cooking and serving from within a short time period only.

    I hope my long winded review/comment has helped in some way. I love my iron skillets. I''ll be back for more pieces.

    I love this skillet! I''ve used it on the stove:gas and electric(on glass tops do not drag this skillet on it, it will scratch the glass) as well as over fire outdoors. I''ve owned it for 8 months now and it still looks as new as it did 8 months ago. Make sure to research how to clean your cast iron cookware and always heat them up to evaporate any surface moisture after cleaning before oiling. I''ve made many different foods in this, Utica Greens, bacon, eggs, steak, pizza...etc. All have come out perfect. Be aware this skillet is huge so make sure you have room to store it and it is also heavy...About 12 pounds I think, so my wife does have trouble moving it, I also need 2 hands to carry the sucker especially when its loaded with food! I would say I would buy this again, but I see this skillet lasting for ever!

Well after folowing all their advices and hours of seasong and making my kitched smell like burned oil i managed to make the pan let''s say....semi-nonstick. And that COULD be enough if the pan is easy to clean. Which sadly is not the case because you need to remember the pan is a pure iron so you can''t put cold watter on it while it''s hot and can''t leave it in water because it would get rusty and you can''t use a soap because you would damage the seasonning and yes don''t forget to brush it very carefully... it is exactly as it sounds. Awfully complicated and time consuming. But i''m just someone who wan''t to make his scrambled eggs with bacon in the morning. For that purpose the cas iron pan is just not good. Try to clean a scrambled eggs softly without any soap and without leaving it soaked in the watter a bit.... I will be using it when i''m roasting some meat in the oven, but that''s all. For anything else just go for a stainless steel pan. They can be as ''''nonstick'''' as cast iron but they are much more easy to clean and that saves you a lot''s of time and nerves.

    Wer kein Gusseisen Kochgeschirr aus China will (auch wenn es gar nicht so schlecht ist wie sein Ruf), gleichzeitig aber nicht die Preise für europäische Produkte zahlen will, sollte mal die verschiedenen Größen der Lodge Serien durchforsten und schauen, welche Produkte es aktuell per Amazon International gibt. Da kosten die Lodge Produkte nämlich deutlich weniger als der hierzulande üblicherweise aufgerufene (und gemessen an der Qualität völlig überzogene) Preis. Zur Klarstellung: Lodge ist eine US Amerikanische Billigmarke, die es "über''m Teich" in jedem größeren Supermarkt oder Haushaltswarenladen für kleines Geld gibt. Qualitativ kann Lodge es locker mit den besseren China Produkten aufnehmen und bietet wie diese gleichmäßíge Wandstärken und eine vernünftige Gussqualität. In den USA ist Lodge daher die erste Wahl für relativ günstiges Gussseisen, wenn man die Preise der deutlich teureren Edelhersteller nicht zahlen will. Wenn die Lodge Produkte dann allerdings nach Deutschland importiert werden, wird daraus plötzlich eine erschreckend hochpreisige "Luxusmarke", die z.T. teurer ist als europäische Produkte (z.B. die sehr guten und noch bezahlbaren Pfannen von Ronneby Bruk). Dank Amazon International sind aber immer wieder mal Artikel von Lodge zu deutlich günstigeren Preisen (trotz internationalem Versand) zu haben. Dann wird es interessant. In meinem Fall wurden es sechs Gusseisenpfannen von Lodge. Jeweils zwei in 10'''', 8'''' und 6.5''''. Alle zusammen haben inclusive Versand aus den USA kaum mehr gekostet als eine einzelne Skeppshult Pfanne (nichts gegen die Marke, aber die Preise sind überzogen). Zwar war das immer noch gut der doppelte Preis, den man in den USA zahlen würde, aber im gleichen Preissegment gibt es sonst hierzulande nur China Ware, bei der die Qualität stark schwankt. Zu den Pfannen: 1. Guss- und Verarbeitungsqualität An der Verarbeitungsqualität der Pfannen gibt es nichts groß auszusetzen. Man darf allerdings auch keine allzu hohen Ansprüche haben, weil es sich wie schon gesagt um günstige Produkte für den US Markt handelt. Gemessen daran gibt es nicht viel zu meckern. Bei den meißten Pfannen sind die Grate nicht perfekt entfernt, aber niemals so, dass es scharfkantig wäre. Mit einem Dremel und etwas Handarbeit ist das schnell behoben, wenn man Wert darauf legt. Wirklich nötig ist es nicht, da die Kanten wie schon erwähnt niemals wirklich scharf sind. Die Gussqualität war bei fünf von sechs Pfannen ordentlich. Bei einer der 6,5'''' Pfannen waren mehrere kleine Löcher im Boden, entweder durch den Einschluss von Luft oder Feuchtigkeit beim Gießen. Die Pfanne wurde problemlos durch Amazon ersetzt. Alle Pfannen sind nahezu plan und wackeln nur unwesentlich auf einem Glaskochfeld. Man muss schon bewusst beidseitig am Rand zugreifen und wackeln, damit sie sich minimal bewegen. Beim normalen Gebrauch merkt man davon absolut nichts. Bei einer tiefgezogenen Eisenpfanne wäre das ein möglicher Reklamationsgrund, weil diese aufgrund der geringeren Gewichts nicht so "satt" auf dem Herd stehen. Für Gusspfannen empfinde ich es als völlig in Ordnung. Leider sind auch bei Lodge wie bei den meißten Herstellern von Gusseisen Kochgeschirr heutzutage die Oberflächen der Pfannen sehr rauh, insbesondere die Innenseite. Das ist selbst bei vielen deutlich teureren Marken der Fall, weil es das industrielle Voreinbrennen des Geschirrs durch den Hersteller erleichtert (das Öl, mit dem das Geschirr besprüht wird, haftet so besser). Dadurch haftet das Kochgut tendenziell etwas stärker als bei glatten Oberflächen. Zwar mindert die über die Jahre wachsende Patina in der Pfanne die Sache etwas, wirklich glatt werden solche Pfannen aber nie. Wer die rauhe Oberfläche nicht will, hat zwei Möglichkeiten. Entweder kauft man eine Pfanne bei einem der wenigen Hersteller, die feiner gießen und anschließend noch die Innenseite polieren - was sich in entsprechend deftigen Preisen niederschlägt (etwa das 6 bis 15-fache einer Lodge). Oder man legt selbst Hand an und bearbeitet die Innenseite der Pfanne mit 60er Schleifpapier nach, bis sie gleichmäßig glatt ist. 2. Produktdesign Das Design der hier besprochenen Lodge Pfannen ist klassisch. Runde Form, gerade Seitenwände mit kurzem Übergang vom Boden zum Rand und ein kurzer, angegossener Griff, der natürlich entsprechend heiß wird. Bei größeren Pfannen ist noch ein zusätzlicher, eckiger Handgriff vorhanden. Natürlich gibt es von Lodge auch noch andere, modernere Formen. Ich persönlich mag bei Gusseisen aber diese klassische Form, weil man die Pfannen so auch wunderbar zum Backen verwenden kann. Es gibt modernere Designs, aber grundsätzlich ist die Form der klassischen Lodge Pfannen seit mehr als 100 Jahren bewährt. 3. Preis/Leistung Zu den in Deutschland aufgerufenen Preisen sind die Lodge Pfannen (und alle anderen Gusseisen Produkte der Firma) überteuert. Es handelt sich um ordentliche Ware im unteren Preissegment für den US Markt, die hierzulande dann zum vielfachen Preis angeboten wird. Hier sollte man mal etwas genauer den nicht gerade kleinen Markt nach europäischen Produkten absuchen. Wenn eine Pfanne aber im Amazon International Programm auftaucht und incl. Versand "nur" noch etwa das doppelte des US-Preises kostet, wird es interessant. In dem Preissegment gibt es dann fast nur noch Konkurrenz aus China, die nichts besser kann als Lodge, aber stark in der Qualität schwankt, während Lodge zuverlässig einfache, aber solide Qualität bietet. Fazit: Als Ergänzung zur tiefgezogenen oder handgeschmiedeten Eisenpfanne (die gehört in jede Küche), insbesondere für den Einsatz im Backofen, sind die Lodge Gusspfannen eine gute Wahl für den schmalen Geldbeutel, WENN man sie zu einem angemessenen Preis wie bei Amazon International findet.
    Wer kein Gusseisen Kochgeschirr aus China will (auch wenn es gar nicht so schlecht ist wie sein Ruf), gleichzeitig aber nicht die Preise für europäische Produkte zahlen will, sollte mal die verschiedenen Größen der Lodge Serien durchforsten und schauen, welche Produkte es aktuell per Amazon International gibt. Da kosten die Lodge Produkte nämlich deutlich weniger als der hierzulande üblicherweise aufgerufene (und gemessen an der Qualität völlig überzogene) Preis.

    Zur Klarstellung:
    Lodge ist eine US Amerikanische Billigmarke, die es "über''m Teich" in jedem größeren Supermarkt oder Haushaltswarenladen für kleines Geld gibt. Qualitativ kann Lodge es locker mit den besseren China Produkten aufnehmen und bietet wie diese gleichmäßíge Wandstärken und eine vernünftige Gussqualität. In den USA ist Lodge daher die erste Wahl für relativ günstiges Gussseisen, wenn man die Preise der deutlich teureren Edelhersteller nicht zahlen will.
    Wenn die Lodge Produkte dann allerdings nach Deutschland importiert werden, wird daraus plötzlich eine erschreckend hochpreisige "Luxusmarke", die z.T. teurer ist als europäische Produkte (z.B. die sehr guten und noch bezahlbaren Pfannen von Ronneby Bruk). Dank Amazon International sind aber immer wieder mal Artikel von Lodge zu deutlich günstigeren Preisen (trotz internationalem Versand) zu haben. Dann wird es interessant.

    In meinem Fall wurden es sechs Gusseisenpfannen von Lodge. Jeweils zwei in 10'''', 8'''' und 6.5''''. Alle zusammen haben inclusive Versand aus den USA kaum mehr gekostet als eine einzelne Skeppshult Pfanne (nichts gegen die Marke, aber die Preise sind überzogen). Zwar war das immer noch gut der doppelte Preis, den man in den USA zahlen würde, aber im gleichen Preissegment gibt es sonst hierzulande nur China Ware, bei der die Qualität stark schwankt.

    Zu den Pfannen:

    1. Guss- und Verarbeitungsqualität
    An der Verarbeitungsqualität der Pfannen gibt es nichts groß auszusetzen. Man darf allerdings auch keine allzu hohen Ansprüche haben, weil es sich wie schon gesagt um günstige Produkte für den US Markt handelt. Gemessen daran gibt es nicht viel zu meckern. Bei den meißten Pfannen sind die Grate nicht perfekt entfernt, aber niemals so, dass es scharfkantig wäre. Mit einem Dremel und etwas Handarbeit ist das schnell behoben, wenn man Wert darauf legt. Wirklich nötig ist es nicht, da die Kanten wie schon erwähnt niemals wirklich scharf sind.

    Die Gussqualität war bei fünf von sechs Pfannen ordentlich. Bei einer der 6,5'''' Pfannen waren mehrere kleine Löcher im Boden, entweder durch den Einschluss von Luft oder Feuchtigkeit beim Gießen. Die Pfanne wurde problemlos durch Amazon ersetzt.

    Alle Pfannen sind nahezu plan und wackeln nur unwesentlich auf einem Glaskochfeld. Man muss schon bewusst beidseitig am Rand zugreifen und wackeln, damit sie sich minimal bewegen. Beim normalen Gebrauch merkt man davon absolut nichts. Bei einer tiefgezogenen Eisenpfanne wäre das ein möglicher Reklamationsgrund, weil diese aufgrund der geringeren Gewichts nicht so "satt" auf dem Herd stehen. Für Gusspfannen empfinde ich es als völlig in Ordnung.

    Leider sind auch bei Lodge wie bei den meißten Herstellern von Gusseisen Kochgeschirr heutzutage die Oberflächen der Pfannen sehr rauh, insbesondere die Innenseite. Das ist selbst bei vielen deutlich teureren Marken der Fall, weil es das industrielle Voreinbrennen des Geschirrs durch den Hersteller erleichtert (das Öl, mit dem das Geschirr besprüht wird, haftet so besser). Dadurch haftet das Kochgut tendenziell etwas stärker als bei glatten Oberflächen. Zwar mindert die über die Jahre wachsende Patina in der Pfanne die Sache etwas, wirklich glatt werden solche Pfannen aber nie.
    Wer die rauhe Oberfläche nicht will, hat zwei Möglichkeiten. Entweder kauft man eine Pfanne bei einem der wenigen Hersteller, die feiner gießen und anschließend noch die Innenseite polieren - was sich in entsprechend deftigen Preisen niederschlägt (etwa das 6 bis 15-fache einer Lodge). Oder man legt selbst Hand an und bearbeitet die Innenseite der Pfanne mit 60er Schleifpapier nach, bis sie gleichmäßig glatt ist.

    Indubbiamente le Lodge sono tra le migliori padelle in ghisa che esistano. Questa padella di misura 26 cm risulta un perfetto compromesso di dimensione, perfetta per 2/4 persone in quanto la effettiva superficie di cottura è di 22 cm. Per quanto riguarda la cottura la ghisa mantiene molto a lungo il calore quindi una volta che ha raggiunto la temperatura si può abbassare la fiamma per continuare a cucinare con il calore della padella stessa, per lo stesso motivo bisogna far scaldare a lungo la padella prima di metterci le pietanze. La cosa migliore sarebbe far scaldare la padella senza niente, metterci olio o burro e quando questi sono a temperatura cominciare a cucinare. Ulteriore vantaggio della ghisa è quello di poter iniziare una cottura sul piano (gas/elettrico/induzione) e terminarla nel forno. Fate ATTENZIONE ad utilizzare sempre le presine con la ghisa, indipendentemente se la si usa sul piano o in forno, in quanto il manico diventa bollente (raggiunge la stessa temperatura della superficie di cottura non essendo rivestita in alcun modo). Le padelle in ghisa sono indistruttibili e durano in eterno purché si faccia attenzione ad alcune cose. Innanzitutto non andrebbero mai pulite con il sapone, prima di tutto perché la ghisa è porosa e del sapone potrebbe rimanere nel metallo se non sciaquata attentamente, secondo perché rovinerebbe il "seasoning". Quest''ultimo è la naturale patina antiaderente che si forma grazie all''utilizzo della padella stessa in seguito alla polimerizzazione dei grassi e che è già presente in minima parte al momento dell''acquisto (costituita da olio di lino polimerizzato). Per mantenere al meglio la padella è consigliabile ungere la padella prima di riporla con dell''olio (meglio un olio che si asciuga all''aria, non di oliva quindi) e poi tamponarla con della carta finché quest''ultima non risulta asciutta. In questo modo lo strato di olio sarà microscopico e tenderà a penetrare nella padella stessa senza farla diventare appiccicosa. Importante asciugare la padella dopo averla sciaquata, altrimenti si rischia la formazione di ruggine. In questo caso la situazione si risolve facilmente, basta grattare via la ruggine e ricostituire il seasoning della padella mettendola in forno a 250-300 gradi con un sottilissimo strato di olio (stessa procedura di sopra) e lasciandola per un''oretta a far polimerizzato l''olio (chiudete la porta della cucina e aprite bene la finestra, odora molto di olio questa procedura). Spero di esserti stato utile nella tua scelta
