    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cooks and heats evenly, durable, scrapable, stovetop-to-ovenable, campable, grill-topable, etc.
    Cons: It may be too heavy for the frail chef.

    Summary: In the last two years, I had to move all our stuff three times. Unending mounds of boxes, out one house, into storage, then out of storage, and into the new home. What are the chances of losing a lamp, book, or Monopoly terrier token? They’re ... read more

  • Must have - must leave it on your stove!

    Nov 7, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Durable, yields great results, only cookware that gets better with age
    Cons: none

    Summary: I purchased this pan for only one reason: Blackening meats! I seasoned it out of the box by putting it in the oven with vegetable shortening for an hour. I started with blackening meats and it produces a result that is unattainable with any other ... read more

  • The Only Type of Skillet You Must Have

    Jun 5, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: inexpensive, perfectly cooked food, increases iron content of food, easy care, durable, high conductivity.
    Cons: requires some caution when handling. It is very heavy, and gets very hot.

    Summary: Why own a cast-iron skillet. There really is no reason not to have at least one cast iron skillet in your house, and once you have one, to use it daily. It makes the best pancakes, grilled cheese, cornbread, pan-seared steak, eggs, and, well, ... read more

    Pros: Great cooking quality, easy to clean.

    Pros: Heavy, even heating, great searing, the right non-stick.
    Cons: Heavy, different cleaning methods.

    Summary: Being a college student, I don't have the money to spend on clad or copper cookware, but for a skillet, why spend so much, (near $150 for a 12" All-clad skillet) when you can get better results from cast iron for $10. Lodge's 12" skillet is large, but ... read more
