Lodge Logic 12-Inch Pre-Seasoned Skillet

100% Positive Reviews


Pros: Durable, even heat distribution and retention

Cons: Maintenance, weight

I received this skillet as a wedding gift more than 20 years ago.  I assume current manufacturing materials and techniques of this item is the same today as it was then.  Anyhow, this is a kitchen workhorse.  My wife and I use it to cook many dishes, from eggs to crepes to braises.  It can go under the oven broiler or over high heat on the stove.  It is indestructible.  Once it became well seasoned, it was almost completely non-stick.  I expect it will last long enough for one of our children to inherit it.  The two flaws are part of cast iron ownership; it is very heavy (short handle exaggerates the heft) and cleanup/maintenance may be greater than other types of cookware material.  Regardless, I use it regularly and will continue to use it.  Great product.


Pros: Retains heat well and can cook a lot in one batch.

Cons: Storage size and weight.

Maybe cast iron products have just gained weight over the years, but this is a pretty hefty beast.  But really, other than the weight, the pan works great.  As will all cast irons, just be sure to take good care of it for cleaning and reseasoning.  You can seamlessly cook on your stovetop, and then throw it into the oven for additional cooking.  And the pan is generously deep, allowing you to fry up chicken without bubbling over.  I have cooked tomato sauce based sauces in this pan without losing seasoning or any off tastes.  I think the old days of highly reactive cast iron is gone.  Great value and great pan!
