Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet is a very excellent kitchen utensil for people to cook delicious food. One of my friends, Joy Emma, is a backbone fan of Lodge cast iron cookware. There are lots of Lodge pans of different specs in her kitchen. She uses them to bake pancakes and fruit crisps as well as fry fish, bacon and chicken. It has been extremely pleasing to enjoy the dishes she made.

The design of Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet has taken all situations into consideration. It works perfectly on induction cootops alongside with gas or electricity stoves. The pre-seasoned products, before they are distributed for sales, are coated with a thin layer of soy-based oil in order to make the cookware sleek and away from rusting. The skillet has totally 8 optional sizes for you to choose; namely 3.5, 6-1/2, 8, 9, 10.25, 12, 13-1/4 and 15 inches in diameter. They have two handles for heavy lifting, and two little side lips for pouring.

The skillet has a rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars, evaluated by an amazing number of 3,084 real customer reviews in Amazon. Usually a 3 digital number of customer reviews is a large base already and the 3 thousand plus proves that Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet has been purchased by so many people and very popular among them.

A reason that Joy loves Lodge logic product line is that they are made of cast iron. She has 2 sons and 1 daughter. She cares a lot about their health. They are good kids and help her cleaning the kitchen utensils after dinner. The sturdy cookware is safe to use. You don’t need to worry about the PTFE or Teflon coating on so-called non-stick pans. The chemical can be rubbed off when you wash and may leak into food during cooking, leading to potentially very serious illness. Cast iron is a ferro-alloy composed of iron, carbon and silicon. The material has been used on earth for thousand years and proved secure for making cookware.

Cooking with Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet makes Joy’s dishes all success. There are tips for you when cooking, provided by the griddle’s manufacture Lodge:

Lodge Cast Iron is right at home on induction, ceramic, electric and gas cooktops, in your oven, on the grill, or even over the campfire. Do not use in the microwave.

On glass or ceramic cooktops, lift cookware; never slide it.

Our cookware is safe at high temperatures; use metal, wood, or hi-temp silicone utensils.

Some foods may stick to new cookware (especially eggs). Use a little extra oil or butter until you’ve built up the seasoning.

Acidic foods like tomatoes, beans, and certain sauces can damage seasoning, and should be avoided until the seasoning is well-established.

Cast Iron rarely needs to go above a medium heat setting when properly pre-heated. For the times when you do cook at higher temperatures, add oil to cookware just before adding food to prevent sticking.

Our handles get hot; use mitts. Use trivets to protect countertops from hot cookware.

One thing you need to take care is that cast iron has great properties for heat transferring and the handles may get hot during cooking.  You will need a protection such as Mitts, Trivet  or Hot handle holder when you want to catch the pan. You can also buy the Value Pack with Silicon Handle.

Cleaning Lodge Pre-Seasoned Skillet is easy, even for the kids of Joy. The tips can be seen on our post How to clean a pre-seasoned cast iron cookware correctly? You can also watch the helpful video showing how to clean a Lodge pre-seasoned pan which is made up with cast iron.
