There are so many things you can do with cast iron that you can’t with Teflon coated or stainless cookware.
Cast iron heats much more evenly than the cheaper types of cookware. This means no more burns or hot spots in whatever you are cooking.
When it comes to using the 10-1/4’ skillet, you re going to be in love with this piece before you even turn on the heat of your stove.
Here’s why – The makers have saved you a lot of time in initial prep by making sure it comes to you pre-seasoned.
If you’ve never seasoned a piece of cast iron cookware before it can be a bit intimidating. The Lodge Logic Skillet takes the guesswork out of seasoning. You can just take it out of the box and start cooking.
Another area you will be impressed is with the quality of Lodge Logic Skillets. When you hold it you can feel the weight. It comes in at six pounds. There are a lot of pretty wimpy flimsy excuses for cast iron cookware and this certainly beats the pants off of them.
One really nice feature of the Lodge Logic Skillet is that it has two built in lips along the rim of the pan. This lets you pour liquids out without worrying about them spilling all over the sides. These little added features really set the Lodge Logic Skillet apart from its competitors.
Things We Like:
- We love having a handle with a hole in it so we can hang the skillet up.
- The small handle opposite the main handle is a great addition making handling a full pot easier.
- They are just the right size is for cooking up a skillet full of bacon and eggs.
Since this post was written, I have purchased the 8″ Lodge Logic skillet. The reason I brought the smaller skillet is because I love to make omelets, both plain and souffle.
So I wanted to see if the cast iron pan would pass my test. It certainly did. I removed the instructions that were gummed to the base, washed the pan in very hot water, dried it well and then coated it in good quality olive oil
The pan is preseasoned so it didn’t require the full pre seasoning treatment. After bringing the pan slowly to the heat I cooked the first omelet which cooked to perfection. One thing I hadn’t counted on was how hot the handle gets and picked it up without a pot mitt. Big mistake so make sure that you have either a pot mitt or the love handle on hand when it comes time to pick up the hot pan.
Clean up is a breeze, simply rinse the pan under hot water, towel dry or dry using paper towel and coat with a thin layer of oil to stop the pan from rusting.
I have to say I am impressed with my Lodge Logic skillet.
