    5-0 out of 5 stars I love Lodge
    This is a great griddle/grill. It's a huge chunk of cast iron so it's going to be heavy. You should just expect that. But that's one of the things that make cast iron so great. It's sturdy, indestructible, heats evenly, and holds heat well. It's the closest thing to grilling besides actually firing up the grill. Food cooked on the grill side has a smoky, grilled flavor. The griddle side is great for bacon, sausages, hash browns, fajitas, and cheese steaks. I haven't been brave enough to try pancakes yet. Clean up of the grill side is the only drawback, as even a well-seasoned piece will occasionally have bits that stick and burn, especially at high heat. Even so, this is a very minor inconvenience for such a great piece. A good exhaust hood or a couple of open doors or windows will make use easier also. I just consider it part of the experience. We love to take ours camping. Over the fire or on a camp stove it's a large, versatile piece of cookware. Breakfast for the whole family can cook on one side. Season and wash correctly and this will give you lifetimes of use. I'm sure your kids, grandkids, and great grandkids will love it too.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A Forgotten Necessity
    If you like to grill in the winter, then you should buy this grill! Season it well and follow all the instructions and you'll have no trouble keeping the grill clean. The griddle is great for Sunday morning breakfasts. It is heavy, so you've been warned. Non-stick grills can't compared, as the non-stick peels away after awhile. This grill will last!

    2-0 out of 5 stars a big warping heavy messy piece!
    I own at least a dozen of the lodge cookware pieces and love them very much but this is not such a great thing. I went through the normal in the oven seasoning that always works just great but this thing warped like a potato chip! It did flatten back out as it cooled but everytime I put it on my two burners to use, it warps again making it very rocky on the stove top and my pancakes looked like Picasso made them. It always flattens back out but it's really a pain in the ah hum to use. The grill side set off all the smoke detectors and left a greasey film on everything in my whole house and I was only using a med low burner, well, at least the door stopped squeeking! It is also a bit to narrow for two rows of pancakes unless you make them very small and the center doesn't get hot enough. Just when you thought you've experienced all the unpleasantness of this pan, you then go to clean it and discover you'd be better off just throwing it out in the yard for the dogs to lick clean! I love you Lodge, I really do but I'll stick to outside grilling and my larger lodge skillet for hotcakes, the 13 inch round pan is a dream as are all the other pieces I own. As for this heavy sticky thing well, I may try it out on my fire ring next cookout and if that doesn't work out, it's yard sale time!

    4-0 out of 5 stars No Soap Ever
    Once seasoned this is a great, if messy, item to use. Try to set up a surround to catch the splatter. If you can't get your irons from a restaurant going out of business or a farm sale(Check institutions also)season well before first use. A rule of thumb is to use it for french fries for the first 5-6 times. NEVER try to cook starch or sugar foods the first Ten times of use!!!! Pro cooks never use the first crepe even though their pans are well seasoned. For the best seasoning build a fire outside and put the iron in it. This will burn off the wax coating or SOAP residue and tighten up the metal. If that seems a little over the top for you, put it in the bottom of your oven for about a month. Some smoke will always be present when seasoning an iron; which is why I suggest doing it outside or letting your favourite restaurant do it for you. Just drop it off and they will burn and abuse it into terrific shape. In about three months your iron will be like teflon. Ugly as sin,but a great pan. When cleaning: NEVER NEVER use soap!!!(The chinese never use soap in their woks and they are plain sheet steel). I never use soap on the cooking surface of any of my fry pans be they stainless,aluminum or iron(I don't use painted frypans). Just wipe it out with a paper towel or damp cloth and immediately add a light coating of oil. If necessary, use plain hot water and a little E grease. And NEVER EVER let an iron soak.. The next time you use it rub a few drops of oil over the surface,place on the heat then add your cooking oil. Also,whenever possible, after cooking outdoors, use the fine talcum like dust left in the BarBQ. Scour with the ash, rinse well and coat with a neutral oil and put on a heat source if possible. Allow to cool and wipe off residue. Finally,if your not real dedicated to this type of cookware FORGETABOUTIT. It can be a pain. stick with your usual teflon cookware. That's why they invented the stuff.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Worth the trouble of cast-iron care
    For pancakes, this iron griddle heats slowly and evenly, and it holds the heat better than a teflon griddle but...you...must...season this and instruct well-meaning helpers NOT, repeat, NOT to use any soap of any kind, sponge, steel wool pad, on the griddle. Ever. If you are worried about cleaning it, you can scrub the surface with a hot, clean water, handful of cooking salt and a clean paper towel. After seasoning, pancakes cook evenly and this is wide enough to go over two burners and really get some production going at breakfast. Just remember about the seasoning and the No-Soap. ...

    Pancakes, eggs, and bacon somehow taste extra hearty whencooked in a heavy cast-iron skillet. Cast iron creates superior heatretention, heats evenly, and loves a campfire, unlike flimsier pans.Fry up a mess of catfish, roast a chicken, or bake an apple crisp inthis generous 12-inch pan that features two handles for heavy lifting,and two subtle side lips for pouring. While the skillet comespreseasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayedor lightly coated with vegetable oil before use.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great skillet
    I grew up using cast iron and as an adult in my own home did not have any cast iron pieces. Once I saw the pre-seasoned items here I decided to try them. I have been very pleased with this skillet, especially with the two handles. Cast iron is heavy and it's great having that other little handle to grab. Cooks like a dream and is easy to clean. Soak with some hot water (remember no soap!) and give it a light coating of oil once dry. I own the 10 1/4 skillet and had to have this one too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding, dont let the low price fool you!
    Let me start by saying we have a kitchen full of 20+ pieces of Calphalon Hard Annodized Commercial cookware. I was always of the opinion that quality cookware carried a price that was justified by the performace of the cookware. So I thought if I wanted cast iron I should look at LeCreuset... wrong! Lodge blew that theory out the window! I can't express how well this simple pan works. Let it get hot and it will hold the temp like nothing else, oven to cooktop. I finally decided to get a good cast iron skillet after hearing Alton Brown (Host of Good Eats - ...- TV Food Network - ...) rave about cast iron for the last few years. He steared me to Lodge, Lodge's web site (lodgemgf.com) told me about the pre-seasoned "Logic" line. This stuff makes cast iron simple. No messing around with seasoning a new pan. Simple care instructions. And clear instructions to reseason should the need occur. At the price these pans sell, there is no excuse to not have one, (or more) in your kitchen. It will soon become your favorite pan. I bought a 5 quart Lodge Logic Dutch Oven at the same time and it is fantastic as well!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Multipurpose Pan
    This pan is great! The pre-seasoning takes all the guess work out of cast iron. Nothing tastes like biscuits baked on a cast iron skillet...they rise perfectly and are crispy on bottom and flaky throughout. Yum! Bacon also cooks up much better on cast iron. Great pan for a great price!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Quality
    I own several Lodge cast iron products and use them everyday. I have 3 teeneage boys that enjoy cooking, and after they destroyed a few teflon coated pans, I decided I would go heavy into cast iron. These pans are indestructible. You can use them in the oven or stovetop, and if you keep it seasoned properly food will not stick. Also, to avoid sticking problems, you may want to remember to allow the pan to get hot before applying oil or food.

    As to seasoning, the Logic line now comes preseasoned. But don't make a big deal about this. To season a cast iron skillet simply coat it lightly with oil and bake it for a half hour or so. I have also seasoned these skillets on the stovetop. Cast iron is also great because it does not easily scrap like stainless steel and aluminum pots. Aluminum pans are painful to me, as my teeth fillings react to the aluminum. With cast iron, you won't have this problem. I also take my Lodge pan camping and set it right over the coals to cook. No melted handles or scorched bottoms to mess with.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Staple Cookware Item of Any True Cook
    This should be the first item purchased by beginners, to chef's. You cannot duplicate the heat dispersment qualities of a cast iron skillet. From cornbread to crepes to steaks, this skillet can do it all. This is called by the company a "heirloom" cookware item, and this not an overstatement or stretch of the truth. Families have fought over who gets items like this when grandma passes. It's utterly foolish not to purchase one of these skillets at the price and with free shipping, if you have to cook, or love to cook. This will be easily the best purchase you make in your kitchen. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Bargain of bargains
    This big hunk of iron is one of the greatest things in my kitchen. It's great for frying chicken (as you might expect). But it's also wonderful for frying anything else you can imagine (it never lets me down with catfish), making pralines, cooking cornbread, making a mess of jambalaya, any sort of soup that strikes your fancy, or, well, you get the point.

    Care is easy, easy, easy--especially if you re-season the skillet on a yearly basis.

    You'll keep this pan for at least a decade--which means that you'll pro-rate the cost down to well under a penny a day. Can you beat that? No, really, if you can, I want to know about it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Can't go wrong with cast iron!
    I've been gradually buying cast iron pieces to add to my cookware. I grew up using cast iron, but did not have any in my own kitchen as an adult. This is a really nice pan, great for frying chicken as the name suggests but is also handy for many other cooking applications. Love the nice high sides and cleans up great. Would recommend to anyone!

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Staple Cookware Item of Any True Cook
    I flat out love this fryer. I purchased it to replace one of those fancy electric deep fryers. By doing so, I've saved counter space, because this fryer sits on your stove and can be stored permanently on the back of your stove full of grease with the cover on it. It will heat grease fast, and because its cast iron there is an exceptional taste difference in everything you fry. Also, you can use it as a regular pot. If you are assembling just the basics or a dream kitchen, a cast iron Skillet, Grill, and Fryer are a must have. There is no replacement item, or substitute for certain things you cook.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A must have!
    Wish I had got this a long time back instead of spending a fortune on all those expensive non-sticks and all! This is a great buy esp with the pre seasoned coating its just awesome. Cleaning is very easy! Trust me ...I have a huge cast iron skillet, griddle and this one. So if it's not worth it I would let know rt away. I would certainly recommend the Lodge cookware to anyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and Versatile!
    I own three pieces of cast iron cookware, and this item is one of them... and among my favorite cooking implements, period. For dishes requiring steady, even heat and for cooks who require durable cookware with easy clean-up, cast iron CANNOT be beat!

    This fryer is going to last forever. Its care is easy: I scrub it with hot water only, and dry it with an old rag and apply a thin layer of vegetable oil while the iron is still hot... a year and a half later, it's still rust-free and delivering the reliable service I have come to expect and admire. No scratches interfere with its performance, as is the case with my allegedly-long-lasting Wearever nonstick cookware set (what a waste of money THAT was!). In fact, in this particular chicken fryer, I've produced everything from french fries to spaghetti sauce to eggs and bacon to french toast! It's a dependable griddle, skillet, grill, and pot, and it goes right from the stovetop and into the oven for maximum versatility.

    The best thing about the chicken fryer is its somewhat smaller circumference than the skillet or the Dutch oven. It takes up a bit less stovetop space and provides greater depth, making it ideal for small batches of soups, stews, or deep-fried goodies.

    I am an avid home-chef, and I can say without exception that my cast-iron cookware is the best kitchen investment I've ever made. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Makes one heckuva mean pot of chili... among other things.
    This was one of the first pieces of Lodge cast iron that I ordered. I had to admit that the price was the first thing that lured me in, but with that also came the questioning of quality. I was expecting a lightweight dutch oven, but being that I didn't have one, I figured I'd give it a try. The weight of the box it arrived in was the first clue to its quality. The entire piece has a nice weight to it, and the handle is sturdy and comfortable to the hand. I couldn't wait to break mine out of the box and make a pot of chili. The dutch oven browns beef beautifully, yet keeps it moist since it has an even heating surface. Once I added the other ingredients I was amazed at how nothing seemed to stick to the pot. Of course the chili was out of this world, but cleaning up was what I expected to be the payment for such good taste. I couldn't have been further from the truth as it was a breeze to clean up. I simply added hot water to the pot while it was still on the stove and let it simmer for a couple of of minutes. The water must be hot so that it does not crack the iron. Then I used a sponge to wipe out the remaining debris after emptying the water. The main thing to remember is that you should NEVER use soap on a preseasoned pan. I also spray the pieces with vegetable oil after using while they are still warm. An important part to pay special attention to is the inside of the lid. This has not been seasoned and with moisture can be prone to rust. A quick spray before cooking and after cleaning will keep this piece in great condition. I've made numerous pots of chili and beef stew, and the quality of the pan has had plenty of time to prove itself. Dish after dish Lodge has shown that they know how to produce quality cast iron.

    5-0 out of 5 stars MUST-HAVE !
    I recently purchased this item and LOVE it! The new cast iron that is already seasoned is awesome. I still can't believe what a value this was. I know this will be an indespensible item in our ktchen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This will last a lifetime!
    I absolutely love the pre-seasoned items. It saves so much time and is convenient especially for those who are new to cooking with cast iron. I have just about every thing made by Lodge & recommend this as an item you will use again & again.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Healthy, cheap and browns BEAUTIFULLY!
    There are so few "cons" to this pot, it's hard to write a review that doesn't sound sappy.

    I have a full set of Ultrex, a snappy modern line sold by a company that makes pans for many big names found in department stores. 55 year warranty, they work fine... But they're non-stick and I've started to worry about that.

    Not long ago, a study came out that suggested eating foods cooked in Teflon pans left molecules of something or other floating around in the person's blood for FOUR YEARS. I thought twice about this and decided it was time to look into other pans. It might turn out to be benign - but what if it isn't?

    I was addicted to good browning, was used to it from Cuisinart pans and Ultrex. I tried Calphalon hard-anodized aluminum. One burning incident and that pan was RUINED, totally ruined, nothing would clean it.

    I've cooked in this Lodge Logic pre-seasoned for a dozen meals now, meat and fish, vegetables too. I've used all types of fats - olive oil, butter, corn oil. Tonight it made a gravy to die for - using heavy cream and mushrooms.

    You do have to get used to its different heating cycle. It heats up slower than some other materials. It cools off slower too. But it is fuel efficient and you can do a lot of cooking on Low.

    My #1 demand was that it brown meat well. It does that SPLENDIDLY. Really beautiful. Heat the pan for 5 minutes on near High. Throw in two tablespoons of olive oil, throw in stew meat and it will brown in four minutes, magazine picture perfect. Stir with a wooden spoon. Throw in vegetables once the meat's browned. A few cups of water, put the lid on, turn it down to Medium for 15 minutes, Low for another 15 minutes -- it will look like a magazine cover stew. Browning a roast is even easier -- and you can put it into the oven after browning.

    If I had to complain of anything, it would be that cast iron is heavy. I'm not sure how much of a problem this will be. This is still a small enough pot to handle for most people. You can roast a whole chicken in it so if that's the quantity you cook, buy this right NOW, you can't go wrong.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Needs to be seansoned
    I was under the impression with this product I could wash it and start cooking. I was wrong. It still needs to be seasoned and started to rust quickly. But, now that it is all set to go, I have had no problems. Works great as with all the Lodge products. I was disappointed how long it took for it to be delivered. I ordered enough to get the free shipping and did not get my order for three weeks. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Season an iron skillet
    To season a cast iron skillet or any other cast iron utensil: 1. Wash and dry. 2. Heat pan until very hot and add a teaspoon of cooking oil. 3. Remove pan from heat and sprinkle a generous amount of table or kosher salt and spread around utensil. 4. Wipe out with paper towels. This is the correct method for seasoning and cleaning a cast iron utensil.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent
    I have 2 pieces of Lodge cast iron cookware. This one and the 12" un-preseasoned skillet which I conditioned myself. I have to add my voice to the chorus of cast iron admirers who don't know how they ever survived without their Lodges. I do about 80% of my cooking with one or the other. Steaks, burgers, any type of sauteed chicken recipe, stir-fry, fajitas, cornbread, bacon and eggs, pancakes, french toast, grilled cheese sandwiches, and on and on.

    Cast iron's chief strength comes from its massiveness. It is basically a honkin' big hunk of iron formed into a cooking utensil. This large quantity of metal, once heated, will tend to evenly distribute its heat and stay hot no matter what you put into it. Futhermore, once properly conditioned (which Lodge has done for you here), they are almost as non-stick as teflon.

    Unfortunately, cast iron is not without its faults. Its greatest strength may also be its greatest weakness in that it is significantly heavier than other types of cookware. This skillet weighs about 6 lbs. Imagine trying to pick that up, plus the weight of whatever you've cooked in it, with one oven-mitted hand so that you can use a spoon in the other hand to help maneuver your recipe into a serving dish or storage container! If you have weak hands or arthritis or any condition that limits your ability to pick up and manipulate heavy objects, it may not be a good choice for you.

    Also, iron will rust if not maintained correctly. Lodge provides you with use and care instructions which are not complicated or difficult, but which you MUST follow to the letter. Read the instructions carefully when you get your pan. No dishwasher, no soap (just hot water and a stiff brush), dry quickly and coat with cooking oil.

    I've read some reviews where folks are saying that you can't cook tomato-based or acidic products in cast iron. Though it may be true, I've never found an authoritative source to corroborate this and, in fact, Lodge's website (lodgemfg.com) offers recipes that contain tomatoes and acidic ingredients! I regularly put tomatoes, tomato sauce, wine, lemon juice, etc. in my cast iron and haven't seen any ill effects from doing so.

    These pans are so inexpensive, it will cost you very little to give them a try. If you do, you'll be singing their praises with the rest of us!

I have been very pleased with this skillet, especially with the two handles. Cast iron is heavy and it's great having that other little handle to grab. Cooks like a dream and is easy to clean. Soak with some hot water (remember no soap!) and give it a light coating of oil once dry.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Southern Girl's Dream
    I am new to the family of Lodge, but I definitely plan on staying around a while. I was hesitant that the quality of this pan would be poor after checking the price, but I must say I am pleasantly suprised. I bought this pan mainly to make cornbread in and though it is a little large it sure can make one heck of a good pan of cornbread. Growing up in the south I learned quick that cornbread that is actually worth eating must be made with a few simple ingredients: cornmeal, buttermilk, fatback grease, and most importantly, cast iron. Lodge makes the cookware a breeze to use since these pans are pre-seasoned. They're easy to take care of and fairly simple to clean up. I find that just filling it with piping hot water while the pan is still hot removes most of the residue. Anything else can be wiped out with a towel or a sponge, but NO soap. Then just spray with a little vegetable spray while it's still warm and you're all done. You can't ask for easier bakeware. The people at lodge craft their items in a small town in Tennessee. I'd like to think that southerners make the best cast iron, afterall you can't make good cornbread without it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great for someone who doesn't do much cooking
    I got this to try to make pancakes, and now I use it for virtually everything (pancakes, omelettes, stirfry, etc). Nothing sticks, and it's super-easy to use and clean. Probably one of my favorite pans, and uber-cheap. ... Read more

    There are certain dishes that absolutely require cast-iron cookware, and others that just simply taste better when made with it. Just try throwing an aluminum pot onto the campfire and watching the blisters form or sampling a hearty spoonful of jambalaya that wasn't made in a cast-iron kettle. Fancy alloys and coatings on other types of cookware are simply trying to emulate the innate qualities of properly seasoned cast iron: heat retention, even heat distribution, and a scratchproof nonstick surface that will never warp. Since 1896, Lodge has been steadily producing the world's most extensive selection of professional cast-iron cookware, lovingly poured one piece at a time. Cared for properly, these products will last for generations. --Dominic Johnson ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great skillet - buy one!
    I own two Lodge cast iron skillets... a 12-inch one, and a smaller one (6 or 8 inch?) I *adore* them. They are the only skillets I have, in fact; for any bigger jobs that a stock pot won't work for, I use my wok.

    These skillets can be used for just about anything. Very even heat, dependable. I haven't tried to make crepes in them yet, but I suspect you could. On the stove or in the oven, they just rock. Keep them clean and well seasoned, and you'll have a fantastic tool for decades.

    Even though the saying goes to never use tomatoes in a cast-iron pan, I have... and it's just fine as long as you don't cook the stuff too long, and clean your pan out well right away once you're done. Clean it out, brush it out with a paper towel to get off the excess moisture, then set it on the stove over heat until it's dry, that's all it needs. The cast iron skillets are wonderful, too.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Kitchen Essential
    To be brief and to the point -- There is not substitute for the cast iron skillet in the kitchen. No other metal can buld and hold the heat that cast iron can.
    This pan is good for just about anything except sauces. Use it to make breakfast, fantastic steaks, fried chicken and even cornbread. Lodge is the best and you can visit their website for more ideas and care instructions.
    Speaking of care, it don't get easier. Simply wipe out with a paper towel. If you need to use water, use plain hot water - never soap. The more you use the pan the more nonstick it gets. Needless to say it will last a lifetime and then some.
    I use mine so much I store it on the lower rack of my oven.

    5-0 out of 5 stars You can't beat Lodge
    This is a great product. Cast iron is admittedly rather heavy, but the weight and density of the metal is what makes it such a good cooking medium.

    I use this cast iron skillet more often than I use most of my other pans, many of which I paid five to tens times as much for. I find that the chef's assist handle makes pan quite managable, and the pour spouts work quite well for draining.

    To be honest, cast iron does require more upkeep than non cast iron. You have to be careful about seasoning the pan correctly (a process that takes two to three hours, but is not very labour intensive), and to keep it from sitting in water. But other than that, you have a pan that can last a lifetime.

    Lodge now makes pre-seasoned pans. I've never used them largely because they seem to be ... more per pan. It seems exorbitant to pay ... extra for what is essentially a coating of shortening and a few hours in an oven. I recommend you get this pan and season it yourself. Use the extra [money] to buy one of the smaller Lodge products.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Preseasoned is worth it
    In contrast to the previous reviewer, I highly recommend the preseasoned pans. I own a preseasoned 12-inch skiller as well as a regular Lodge dutch oven which came unseasoned, but was seasoned by me before use.

    The seasoning process of the preseasoned pans is NOT equivalent to that capable by the home oven. Seasoning at home with Crisco results in a pan with the color of caramelized sugar, whereas the preseasoned pans arrive pitch black. After 1.5 years of regular use and proper maintainence, the dutch oven is only now beginning to take on the black appearance and superior non-stick quality of the preseasoned skillet.

    I will only purchase preseasoned cast iron if possible. The price is not much more at all, and sometimes it's even cheaper vs. the unseasoned version at Amazon.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Better than Le Creuset at 1/5 the cost
    Very pleasantly suprised w/ how well this works. It really is non-stick when properly handled. 1/2 tbsp of oil is enough for 2 servings of onions, ham & potatoes. (Haven't had the courage to fry eggs in it yet). This is the standard, right out of the mold version. It's so easy to season that I'm not sure the pre-seasoned version is worth the extra $2. It's massive enough that I can use a 12" skillet over the standard 8" electric burner and have the bottom uniformly hot.

    Two things you need to learn about cast iron: 1. Turn the heat down. The thermal mass means you don't have to reheat the thing every time you add something to it. And 2. use oven mitts. Point 2 learned very quickly.

    I also have the Le Creuset 10" skillet since 10" is all I could afford. Compairing the two: The Lodge is heavier than the LC so it's heat retention and distribution characteristics are better. 12" gives you room too work. It's made in America by American workers. And: it costs 1/5 as much. So experiment. If you ruin it, and that would take some doing, toss it out and get another. The cons: It's *slightly* harder to clean since you can't use soap. It's heavier. It needs a touch of oil or shortening to work properly.

    Interesting questions for you food fascists out there: How much oil are we ingesting using cast iron cookware? When are you going to sue the skillet manufacturers for poisoning everyone?

    Chefs will tell you what your grandmother already knew: nothing beats cast-iron cookware for durability, conductivity, even heat distribution, and value. Season cast iron properly and foods won't stick either--no need for a synthetic nonstick coating that might peel or crack. Cast iron even adds iron to the nutritional content of a meal, just like your grandmother said. Made by Lodge, one of the oldest and most trusted names in cast-iron cookware, this 7-quart Dutch oven is built like a Sherman tank, with a sturdy handle and a heavy iron lid with a textured surface for braising. On the down side, the Dutch oven is heavier than a box full of bricks, but think of it as cookware and weaponry rolled into one. Be sure not to use dishwashing liquid on seasoned cast iron, and towel dry and coat with a light layer of oil after washing. Never leave cast iron sitting in water, because it will rust. If you treat your cast-iron cookware properly, your own grandchildren will still be using it when that fancy aluminum-alloy pan is long gone to the great yuppie kitchen in the sky. --Mary Park ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars Lodge is the best !
    This was my first cast iron cooking vessel. I just love the thing (tho' it is a little heavy for my 5 foot 1', 100 pound frame- in addition to cooking, it provides a really good daily workout). I have found this dutch oven to be so versatile that I cook almost everything in it. I am Indian and love cooking, and have cooked Indian, American, Chinese, Mexican food, and my own creations in it. It just keeps going from electric stove, to oven to dining table, and takes all of the abuse (I have used it to cook acidic foods like tomatoes, lemons, etc., alkaline foods, neutral foods, even Indian spices like turmeric do not destroy it- turmeric can spell doom for a lot of cookware). I have even used it on the stove top to cook cornbread and Indian flatbreads (my expensive non stick skillet did not survive the Indian flatbread cooking).

    5-0 out of 5 stars This will last a lifetime!
    Yes,this is a large, very heavy pot, but that's because it is worth it's weight in gold. You will never have to replace this pan, your great-great grandchildren could still be using it. The price is an unbelievable bargain. It makes enough chili or stew for a small army and is great for braising large roasts. It also bakes cakes beautifully! You will not be sorry you bought it. If you don't cook for over 4 people ever, you probably want the 5 qt.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good pot
    I gave this only three stars because of the lid--all those tips that provide the self-basting are a pain to season. The pot itself has performed wonderfully for me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars awesome
    my mom has this or at least something like at and has had it as long as i can remember, i was looking online for something similar to what she has and i came across this. needless to say i'll probably be getting one of my own. it works beautifully for roasted potatoes, and also this amazing peach pancake that my mom makes. if any of you have this it's the peach pancake recipe is similar to a popover: 1 egg, 1/4 c. flour, and 1/4 c. milk for each person 450 for 15 min, and 350 for 10 depending on how much you make. then for the peach part you take the juice from a can/jar of peaches and you reduce it with sugar and cinnamon, and then you cut up the peaches and add them and then you pour it over your pancake. god i could eat that 8 days a week. it's sooo good.but any way, the last person said the way they clean it was with clean water and a rag, and drying it out in the oven, i find that to be a bit tedious, all it really needs is to be wiped out with a paper towel, unless you make something that sticks to it, which the other way works well for that. i really can't say enough good stuff about this dutch oven. except my mom lost the lid, so i have no idea how well that works.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Genuine Pleasure!
    I recently purchased the Lodge 7 qt. Dutch oven and am delighted with it.

    I do a lot of French roasting (preheating the skillet to 400+ degrees in the oven, then placing it on stovetop over high heat to sear the meat/poultry, then placing back in the oven at reduced temperature). I don't have to be concerned about melting handles, ruining non-stick coatings or warping, and the heavy cast iron absorbs, distributes and retains heat beautifully, as advertised.

    My first 'project' with it was my version of French 'Chicken In A Pot'. I seared a trussed, seasoned 5 ½ pound whole chicken on all sides in a stick of melted butter (it browned just beautifully!), added mirepoix, bouquet garni and chicken stock and put the Dutch oven in the oven uncovered at 375 degrees for 1 hour. I then added large-cut potatoes, carrot, celery, onion and leek and let it continue for about 1 ½ hours covered, basting about every 15 minutes until the chicken and vegetables tested done. The chicken was incredibly moist and tender (better than I've ever had) and the vegetables were al dente and very full flavored and colorful - all in one pot! The resulting juices made fantastic gravy.

    Clear instructions for care and seasoning came with the Dutch oven. During the seasoning process it turned ugly (just like it's supposed to) and the kitchen took on the faint aroma of a foundry, but now it is truly non-stick, especially if you start off with it preheated in the oven to very hot (400+).

    The flavors of foods are so much better with cast iron! I could say it was my imagination if not for the fact that I've heard this claim from so many other cast iron users.

    I wash it with clear water and a soft brush, dry it with a dish towel, then place it in a warm oven for about 15 minutes to dry it thoroughly, then wipe a light coat of vegetable oil all over it and it's ready to go again. The 'household' understands that I am the only one who cleans it and that it is never to be soaked. The standing rule is "Just leave it and I'll take care of it". There are no objections.

    I purchased the Dutch oven as a result of being so pleased with my recently purchased Lodge 12" skillet (especially after I read one of the other reviewer's tip that the Dutch oven's lid also fits the 12" skillet, which it does perfectly).

    All this for a fraction of the price of the 'trendy' cookware (and it will easily outlive them). I would consider my new Lodge Dutch oven a bargain at twice the price.

    Amazon.com Review

    There are lots of fancy cookware materials out there but cast iron still trumps them all with its even heating, heat retention, price, and duration. It’s these traits that make Lodge cookware favored by both indoor chefs and campfire cooks alike. The caveat is being able to lift cast iron cookware and, at 8 pounds, this serving pot will give most chefs a workout. The pot measures 8 inches in diameter and 2-7/8 inches deep and comes with a matching 8-inch iron cover. The pot arrives ready to simmer up to 2 quarts of baked beans, soup, or stew and goes right from stovetop to tabletop for serving.

    While it usually takes years of cooking to burn on the prized finish that makes cast-iron cookware smooth and stick-free, the Logic line of cookware comes pre-seasoned to save you some work. Cast iron pots in this line are coated in a vegetable oil, which is then baked on in a hot industrial oven to obtain that blackened patina and silky surface. Logic cookware has plenty of fans, including the editorial staff at Good Housekeeping, who cited it as one of the best new products of the year at the 2003 Good Buy Awards. --Cristina Vaamonde ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars works fine but the handle gets hot
    This works great to flatten bacon. I chose this instead of the larger circular one and it fits better in more of my pans. The only question I have is why they didn't spend an extra 50 cents and put a wooden handle instead of a metal one which gets so hot one has to use an oven mitt just to pick up the press.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent bacon press
    Nice addition to your kitchen if you are cooking bacon, which tend to curl up. The bottom is smooth, with no places for food to catch and hide.

    Cavet, the first one I had, the spring on the handle broke. (the wire spring is welded to the wire handle, it must have been overheated as the wire spring broke loose from the handle. Not incapacitating it, as the spring just rolls in you hand, but annoying.) I wrote Lodge Mfg, and they sent a replacement which has worked fine ever since. Hence 4 stars instead of 5.

    Requires some assembly, a screwdriver and a small wrench. Easy for any handyperson to do. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars loving it
    A bit weighty at 10lbs, but how can you go wrong with cast iron? I love it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Product
    I had gotten a reversible grill/griddle from Wisconsin and was completely disappointed (food burned on easily, never washed off and was just a mess), so I was a little shaky about buying another, but I really wanted the convienence of a reversible grill/griddle. But the Lodge is great: food just flakes up off of it (no soap!), making cleaning quick and easy. I can cook pancakes, bacon and eggs in the morning and then grilled cheese in the afternoon and one doesn't taste like the other. I'm just very happy with this product. However, it is heavy, so be prepared for that. And with the pre-seasoned has handles, so it may or may not fit into your oven. Be prepared for that. And every time you cook with it, you need to oil it. Be prepared for that, too. But other than that, this is a great product that a kitchen is lucky to have.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good versatile product
    This is absolutely perfect for use outside, e.g. camping, on the grill, fire pit,etc. It's also great indoors for pancakes, eggs and hashbrowns. However forget grilling meats indoors unless your range hood fan has "super turbo setting". I attempted to grill steaks and within 5 min. the whole house filled with smoke and the smoke alarms started screaming. (I hate that )! With that said, used in the ways I stated above I have no problem recommending it. This griddle is a great addition to my growing cast iron collection

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm in love with Lodge cast iron
    This is an awesome grill. If you're carnivores, you will not believe how delicious it grills steaks. You just have to follow their directions to take care of the iron which is no big deal. My first piece, the 12" skillet, I bought unseasoned. It was a bit of a mess (though still worth it), but I decided to buy the rest with Lodge's preseasoning. Every time you use it it gets better.

    I now own the 8" skillet, the 12" skillet, the 5 qt. dutch oven, and the grill/griddle. Amazon's prices are insanely cheap, especially with the free shipping. I got all of these pieces for about [$$]. Almost half the price of other cooking web sites!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Give your arms a workout!
    I am new to cast iron cookware and this is also my first stovetop griddle. I love that it's pre-seasoned, but even then, I managed to burn my pancakes on the first try. I'd turned the electric burners on to High: rookie mistake. Now I set it to Medium-High. Problem solved. My husband swears hamburgers taste better on this grill than in our George Foreman grill.

    The cons of this are characteristic of any cast iron cookware. First of all, it's HEAVY. Storing it was a problem until I found it fit perfectly in the drawer beneath my oven. And unlike a previous reviewer, I had no trouble with this not fitting in my oven or on my stove top (we have a slide-in range; it might not fit as well on a free-standing range where the temp control panel might get in the way). Maintenance is another issue, but care instructions are included, so read them carefully. You will need a metal scourer to keep it clean and lots of nonstick spray to keep it rust-free. I wrap my grill in aluminium foil after cleaning to keep it from getting everything else greasy.

    Bottomline: cooks great, high maintenance, and lasts multiple lifetimes. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Review

    Ridges on the bottom of this heavy cast-iron skillet make itperfect for grilling sausages, hamburgers, and steaks. Cast ironcreates superior heat retention, heats evenly, and loves a campfire,unlike flimsier pans. This 11-1/4-inch pan features a cast-iron handlewith a notch to allow for hanging, and two subtle side lips for pouringoff grease or liquids. While the pan comes preseasoned to keep foodfrom sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated withvegetable oil before use. Whether used in a kitchen or camp, thisvirtually indestructible pan should last for generations.--AnnBieri ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites for grilling indoors
    I stopped using anything with teflon years ago, and have been using some old but not perfectly seasoned pans off and on. This new "pre seasoning in the factory"is FABULOUS. I can't imagine finding a better performing grill pan anywhere, even for a higher price, the grill is significantly raised up and yet is HOT leaving perfect grill marks and cooking beautifully.

    I use a stiff nylon brush with hot water and it cleans up perfectly. Then I use a paper towel to dry and a quick spray with oil and blot and spread with another paper towel and done. Do not fear cast iron anymore!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great For Grilling Indoors
    I love this pan! Living in an apartment and not having an outdoor grill, I had been craving a good steak. I cooked a perfect NY Strip with my Lodge pan, and can't wait to have another! No need to go to the Outback now! Also, it seemed I could never grill a chicken breast right in my non-stick, without it ending up too tough or practically burned on one side. With the Lodge grill pan, it cooked evenly and perfect! I am so glad I got this pan!

    Make sure you read the directions on how to care for your grill pan, if you have never used cast iron before. No soap! Sometimes it may be tougher to clean, compared to non-stick and other pans, but just soak it and use some elbow grease. I think it is worth it!

    I looked at several different options - such as the Foreman grill before settling on this grill pan. Although I have a small back patio, I've never used a bbq and wouldn't be comfortable doing so, not to mention I'm just cooking for one so the time spent setting it up wouldn't be worth it to me. The Foreman grill, based on reviews, didn't sound like it would be easy to clean and wasn't reliable. The grill pan looked like the perfect solution. Although the pan is heavy, there are two handles which makes it easy to move and carry over to the sink. Following advice I'd found on the internet, I use cooking spray generously and bought a wire scrub brush to clean it with. The pan does create smoke so I'm always sure to turn on the kitchen fan and open the back door before I even turn the stove on as well as disconnect the smoke detector. The pan heats up fairly quickly and cooks the food evenly and quickly. I must admit I don't use it frequently and have only tried a handful of foods, but I have been pleased with my experiences and would recommend this item.

    5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!
    This is a great pan. I love all of the cast iron products that I have bought from Amazon.com. They are a great design and easy to cook with.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Southern Girl Has Come Back To Her Roots
    I honestly cannot say enough good things about this pan. At first I was skeptical and a little hesistant about cooking with cast iron. Growing up in the south I knew the magic of cast iron cornbread made with fatback, but I also knew the special care that went into seasoning the beloved pieces of cookware. When I saw that this was preseasoned I went for it. I worried that it might be a lightweight pan and only sublime quality for the price but I was pleasantly surprised. This pan has a heavy weight to it and is crafted solidly. I've used it for hamburgers (they make the best I've ever tasted), grilled chicken, pork chops, and shrimp (YUM). Something I learned is that things tend to stick a little so coating the pan with vegetable spray is a good idea. Also, try soaking your shrimp in a mixture of butter and garlic before grilling it. I am in love, it hasn't even left my kitchen counter to go into the cabinet since I bought it because I use it so much. My husband being a Yankee wasn't used to the goodness of the cast iron but now that he sees how perfectly it browns meat while still leaving it moist he is hooked. With this pan I find the grooves to be so helpful. You can season the meat without worrying about all the seasoning burning to the pan. Also they're nice and deep so that the fat that does run off actually stays off the meat. Cleaning it is SO easy! I just run hot water into the pan while it's still hot from the stove then use a sponge or dish towel (NO SOAP) to wipe it out, rinse it off, and then spray with vegetable spray while it's warm before putting it away. I have to say that Lodge has a loyal fan in me. With quality old time cookware like this, without the hassle of seasoning it first you can't go wrong. ... Read more
