The Curated Take

Di Doherty, Kitchen Expert
Melissa Brunetti, Kitchen Expert
By the Expert Community

I have several different pieces of Lodge cookware, including an 8-inch cast iron skillet. I use my skillet to make breakfast or dinner for myself, as the smaller capacity is just right for one or two people. It’s great for eggs, resulting in an evenly cooked and browned omelet—I’ve even popped it under the broiler to finish it. The high sides make it excellent for sautéing and frying. I’ve used to it fry French fries in oil, and it keeps the oil at an even simmer.

It also handles the oven very well, as I made a skillet cornbread that came out with a wonderful texture and beautifully browned sides. The seasoning creates a nonstick coating, so the cornbread was easy to remove from the skillet, too.

Like all cast iron, the pan is heavy. As I only have the 8-inch, it’s by no means unwieldy, but it’s quite a bit heavier than a stainless steel or copper skillet of the same size. Cast iron always needs to be washed by hand, and it helps if you apply a thin coat of oil after every washing, as this helps preserve the seasoning.

If you don’t mind the weight and a bit of maintenance, Lodge makes high-quality cookware in the USA at affordable prices. For those looking for a well-made, multipurpose skillet that’ll last a lifetime, they need look no further.

We took our classic skillet and made a miniature version. Crafted in America with iron and oil, its naturally seasoned cooking surface is the perfect size for serving individual cookies or brownies. Small, but mighty! Seasoned and ready to use.

FEATURES

  • Seasoned with 100% natural vegetable oil
  • Unparalleled heat retention and even heating
  • Made in the USA

David was knowledgeable, patient with my questions and responsive!
5 /5
It is especially important to me that a salesperson is not pushy…I wasn’t sure at first, but I had a great Curated experience. David clearly has cooking experience to answer my questions the way he did, and he did research (temp tolerances) when he didn’t know a detail. So helpful! This was a great shopping experience; thank you!

I stumbled upon Curated through a Google search when trying to find a new blender that would handle items like smoothies and soups better than my standard $30 countertop model now that we had started drinking/eating more of them. I was matched with Mike and he was amazing! He was responsive and accommodating to my schedule. He asked relevant questions which allowed him to make some great recommendations. When I made a choice and found the same item on sale on another site he was even kind enough to price match it for me. Mike has ensured that I will be back to Curated for all of my relevant needs in the future as we buy a new home at the end of this year and beyond.

Paul was very helpful and supportive. Felt less anxious about a future position as a pastry chef and much more prepared both because of the products I purchased that he recommended and because of his advice. I feel even better that I am able to go back and ask for more tips and advice in the kitchen from him.
