Lodge - America's Original Cookware:
When Joseph Lodge began making cast iron in the late 1800s, he began a legacy of enduring quality that has carried forward for four generations and counting. Today, Lodge is still a family-owned and operated business producing the finest, most extensive selection of cast-iron goods on the market. Amazingly, some of the first cast-iron frying pans, tea kettles, and Dutch ovens made over 100 years ago are still in use. Lodge's privately-held metal formula, precision molds, and exacting wall thickness are the result of years of dedication to improving quality that began with the first skillet from the first mold. Not even the most expensive stainless or aluminum cookware can rival the even heating, heat retention, durability, and value of Lodge Cast Iron.

      I had received an e-mail from Gander Mountain on sale items and this skillet was one of the items I needed to "round out" my camping equipment. I received it in time for my little excursion this past weekend with a buddy and my brother-in-law. I cooked up breakfast for the weekend and the pan did exactly what other reviewers have already attested. It is non-stick, although I highly recommend "seasoning" it again prior to first use. I brushed a little cooking oil on the inside surfaces and put it in a 350 degree F. oven for about 90 minutes. If you put too much oil in the pan and there's a little residual when you take it out of the oven, just let the pan cool down and use a couple of paper towels to remove the excess oil. I am very happy with this product and am now considering a Dutch Oven purchase over the winter so I'll be ready come spring! Buy this pan...you won't be sorry!

        Nice skillet for the price as I caught it on sale. I'm not using this for the outdoors, but in my kitchen for every day use. It is a bit to heavy for the fiance to handle, but I really like it. It comes seasoned, but it's not quite seasoned enough to be non stick right out of the box. I seasoned it again in the oven for a few hours coated in oil and now it works excellent. I would definintely suggest this skillet to anyone looking for some good smaller cast iron cookware.

          What does preseasoned mean?

          • A:

            The cast iron surface has been conditioned by the manufacturer to make it a non-stick frying pan. There are no artificial surface materials on it.

            A:

            Cast iron pans require seasoning before use. Generally a coat of grease is applied to the pan and place in the oven for about one hour at 350 degrees. If done correctly and used correctly, food will not stick.

            This pan has a process that has preseasoned it for you.

            cast iron cookware has to be sealed with fat to prevent rusting and to give a smooth cooking surface the more you fry in a cast iron skillet the smoother the cooking surface will get

          • VERIFIED BUYER

            A:

            "Seasoning" of the cast iron pan is needed to prevent rusting and impart a non-stick surface. Preseasoned means that the factory seasoned the pan, so it's pretty much ready for use. In general, preseasoned pans are quite adequate and with use with oil will become better, but you might also want to further season it more out right.

            The seasoning process can be quite involved requiring some sort of lard or oil to coat the surface of the pan, and then baking it at high temperatures (400-500F)in the oven to bond the fat to the metal-lots of smoke. The high temperature baking also puts a rust-resisting protective magnetite layer. Using harsh detergents and grease-cutting dishwashing liquids will remove the seasoning and the pan will require re-seasoning, so most people just wipe down their cast iron cookware with coarse salt after use or to boil water to remove any baked on grease and then put a thin layer of cooking oil on it before storage.

            A:

            Typically cast iron pans will rust due to their composition. A coating of oil will prevent this. Preseasoned means pre oiled so you can just rinse and use it the first time. Hence why you are not supposed to use soap to clean it and why you need to oil it after washing it
