About Lodge Cast Iron Skillets and Frying Pans
Founded in 1896 in the Appalachian Mountains of Tennessee, legendary cast iron brand Lodge don’t just make cookware – they make heirlooms that are passed down through the generations. All their cast iron skillets and frying pans are suitable for use on induction, ceramic, electric and gas hobs, as well as in the oven and on barbecues or campfires, with excellent heat distribution and an easy-release finish which improves with age. Pre-seasoned with vegetable oil at the foundry for a rust-resistant, non-stick finish, they can be used to sear, fry, sauté, grill, roast, bake, braise or boil, indoors or out. What’s more, if you are out in the wild, they can all be hand washed without any need for detergent because the iron is sterile at 100°C.
Lodge is the sole cast iron cookware manufacturer still operating in the United States, combining only the safest and purest sources of iron with state of the art moulding systems and an electrostatically sprayed, pre-seasoning coat of vegetable oil to help prevent rusting. In addition to the heavy duty cast iron cookware they also offer a lighter but equally tough carbon steel range made from high-quality 12-gauge carbon steel.
Caring for Cast Iron Cookware
With just a few simple steps, your cast iron cookware will last you a lifetime. When you’ve finished cooking, rinse the pan out with hot water, and, if you need to, use a mild abrasive to remove burnt on food. Dry the pan thoroughly to prevent rust and then lightly coat with cooking oil to build up the seasoning. For convenience, Lodge’s Cast Iron cookware comes pre-seasoned, and it will only get better after every use.
