I ordered 2 Lodge Logic skillets knowing the quality; one was delivered with a large crack. When I tried to print a return slip it said "not eligiblefor return". This was quickly satisfied with a chat representative, who said I'd be credited and it was not necessary to return the defective product. Great service from O Stock again.
This is a heavy, pre-seasoned skillet takes a bit of time to heat up, but once it is hot, it really holds the heat and seems to evenly spread the heat around the pan. I use it for French toast as I want a very hot pan to sear the egg covered bread. It seems not to hard to clean (it's not nonstick, so you will have some residue to get off after cooking), especially if you put something on the pan to help prevent sticking. I season my pan anyway with ollive oil occasionally although supposedly that is not necessary. Lodge makes quality cast iron products, the only problem you might have with one is rusting if you have continual moisture around it and don't protect it (like with an oil coating). It is actually made in the USA, what a miracle!
This was my first cast iron skillet and it said it was pre-seasoned. Everyone warned me that it probably wasn't, but they were wrong! The first thing I made was homemade skillet cornbread and didn't season the pan. Absolutely fantastic...no sticking, cooked evenly and was delicious! Have used it daily since with the same results every time.
I was so excited to receive my first Lodge cast iron pan, so followed the directions for cleaning to use it right away. After I cooked with it, rinsed it, and started to season it, a weird black substance came off onto the paper towel. As of today, I've run it through the dishwasher twice, scrubbed it with steel wool twice, and re-seasoned it several times, yet cannot seem to get rid of what is now blackish brown, almost like paint or dirt. I have another cast iron pan (not a Lodge) that I've had no difficulty with whatsoever from the box to the stove. Unfortunately with the Lodge pan, my next step is to take it to a machine shop to blast Lodge's original finish off and start again. So terribly disappointing!
Is this skillet already seasoned? Can you make cornbread in this pan without seasoning the pan yourself? I never can season these cast iron skillets right. What do you do to season them?ruthiemay on Sep 10, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for contacting us ruthiemay. The steel pans are seasoned with all-natural soybean oil in our seasoning line at Lodge Cast Iron.
The steel pans are black in color as a result of the Logic seasoned finish.
The steel pans can withstand and maintain very high temperatures, such as professional gas ranges and campfires, making them great for searing.
The steel pans can also maintain very low temperatures.
Please let us know if you have any further questions.overstockcustomercare1 on Sep 18, 2013
