Buy Pre-Seasoned! - Why mess with doing it yourself?

You will Love your Lodge Logic Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet!

Buying pre-seasoned cast iron means you can start cooking as soon as it arrives! No need to season yourself.

Plus you can use your new Cast Iron Pan with a variety of heat sources, open flame, on the grill, gas, electric, and induction.

Once you start cooking with this cast iron skillet it will become your favorite pan, easy to get comfortable with, easy to create dynamite dishes, and easy to clean.

Cast iron does not scrape and scratch like aluminum and stainless steel, plus it heats evenly and holds that heat steadily from oven to stovetop. How many of your current pans can you place in the oven?

Pre-seasoned Cast Iron Cooking and Care Tips

Take care of your pan and it will take care of you

  • Take care of your pan and it will take care of you
  • Never wash in the dishwasher
  • Rinse with hot water and wipe out, no need to use soap
  • Do not allow to air dry as rusting may occur
  • Towel dry while still warm to retain the pre-seasoned curing
  • Store in your oven but remember that it is there when turning your oven own
  • If you store with a lid place a paper towel between the lid and pan to allow air movement
  • Add a bit of oil when cooking starting out on low heat and increasing to the desired temperature
  • Gas flames should not extend up the sides of the skillet
  • If your stove top has different size burners it is best to match up the skillet size with the burner size
  • Seems like common sense to me but do not use your cast iron pan in the microwave

Easy Clean 1-2-3

Let's take a closer look at this Cast Iron Pre-Seasoned Skillet

The Lodge Logic Pre-Seasoned Skillet is available in six sizes; 6.5", 9", 10.25", 12" (the size I use the most), 13.25", and the large 15".

Each size is 2" deep and comes with two side lips for pouring, plus they have two handles to aid in handling a heavy pan

Easier to clean that stainless steel and better at non-sticking than Teflon

Ideal for browning, searing, sauting, frying, baking, roasting, and just about any style of cooking.

Use it for everything from eggs over-easy to pan sized cookies, from seared Ahi Tuna to perfectly grilled New York steaks.

*Personal note: I enjoy a steak prepared in what is called Chicago Blue, meaning flame seared on the outside and slightly rare on the inside; delicious at my favorite steak restaurant but difficult to do at home until I bought my Lodge Logic Pre-Seasoned Skillet, the closest prep to restaurant.

      Give it a try Guyana, there's really no way to wrong as they're actually easier to cook in once you get used to them.

      Cast iron skillets are my favorite cooking pans and I would not trade them for love nor money. The older they get the better they perform.

      Really great info on season cast iron skillets. I have a cast on skillet that I use quite often but every time I go to grab my husband seems to have packed it away with the camping gear. So i think it might be time to invest in a new one. BTW no real favorite that I can share, I just use it for everyday cooking.
