This cast iron skillet is a good buy for the price. It's dimensions are accurate to what is described on the website. It's weight confirms it is what it says it is: bare cast iron. The handle is sturdy and the pan is well-balanced, so it should be stable on a stove top. However, a couple of things prospective buyers need to know: firstly, this pan is not preseasoned. There are instructions in the box on how to season the pan before use. Secondly: the box comes emblazoned with the pan's picture and logo all across the front of it. So if you are trying to surprise someone with a gift, that's kind of an impediment. Overall though, still a very good buy.

We purchased this skillet because we needed one in this size which is a little larger than usual. My husband does the cooking and he prefers using cast iron. It is easy to clean and we don't have to worry about whether a non-stick coating is bad for our health. It is heavy so ladies should be aware. I cannot lift with one hand but since he does the cooking that is not a problem for us.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The quality of this product met all our expectations. I believe that some of the problems others have had have to do with them not seasoning the pan correctly before use. Once this is done the surface is smooth and there is no sticking.

I use cast-iron pans all the time, and this size is exactly what I needed for four beef tenderloins or three NY strips. Gives a fabulous pan-sear and then goes right into a hot oven, no worries. I love it for so many things - from skillet cornbread, to pan-roasted potatoes, to steaks/chicken...pretty much anything that needs a good crust or requires even heat on the bottom.

A 14 inch cast pan is really much larger and heavier than a 12 inch. I expected this, but was still surprised. The weight is excellent for keeping it in place on the stove as you move things around.
The weight is also a very positive attribute because it holds heat much better than a smaller or lighter pan. The actual flat cooking surface is a bit rough, which is true of all new cast iron pans. I have started the seasoning process using lard and intend to cook bacon and other fatty items in it for awhile to build up a nice low stick surface.It is a nice flat bottom, so it does not wiggle on my gas range. One key to frying food, like chicken for example, is not letting the fat cool off too much when adding food. This pan can will really help with keeping the fat hot to avoid greasy food.

The pan is very sturdy but, now that I know more about cast iron, am not so pleased with it. The surface is a bit rough and the top edges are sharp. I've seen other cast iron and they are very smooth on the cooking surface. I also wish it had the carrying handle across from the handle as it's so heavy to lift with one hand.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. The pan is very sturdy but is a bit bumpy on the surface and the edges of the top are sharp.

MAKE SURE YOU WANT THIS BIG THING BECAUSE RETURNING IT WILL COST YOU MORE THAN THE PAN ITSELF. THIS IS GOOD TO USE IF YOU WANT TO MAKE LIKE 8 PORKCHOPS OR 20 PIECES OF CHICKEN AT A TIME. TOO BIG FOR A SMALL FAMILY OF 3. CAN'T RETURN IT
Extremely disappointed! When one thinks of cast iron cookware, the first thing to come to mind is indestructible.However, when this pan arrived, it was literally broken--the handle had been snapped out of the side of the pan and there was a crack across the full with of the underside of the pan. The metal was thinner than any cast iron pan I have ever seen, old or new and appeared to be uneven in thickness.
Needless to say, I sent it back for a refund (which Overstock handled with their usual good grace and speed!). I will not buy Bayou Classic cookware again.
This is one of the best cast iron skillets I've ever owned! It's nice and heavy. It also seasoned very well. Some cast iron pans don't heat as evenly as it is claimed, but no problems with this one! Even though this pan is 14" across, the very edge heats just the same as the center. I really can't recommend this pan enough!! It's awesome!
It says it is seasoned but the skillet instructions tell you how to season it! I followed the instructions because they are simple: just oil the skillet and bake in the oven for 1 hour. Do this several times. That's it.marco21 on Mar 29, 2013
