Product Description

Amazon.com

This two-piece cast-iron combo takes care of most stovetop needs. The bottom is a 3-quart pan that works either as a fry pan or a saucepan, while the tight-fitting lid doubles as a griddle for stir-frying or grilling. Both pieces are built to last--nothing tops cast iron for durability. Unlike many cooking surfaces, cast iron becomes more stick-resistant as it ages. Cast iron has excellent heat retention, so there's no need to cook over extremely high temperatures and dishes will stay warm in the pan. Cast iron also safely adds iron to your food. Because iron can rust, this pan should not be immersed in water for long periods, and it should stay out of the dishwasher. Just wash it with soap and water, avoiding abrasive cleaners. --Laura Cuthbert

I bought one because its deeper than the plain 12" fry pan I already own. The depth is 3inches and the diameter is 9.5 inches. The extra depth, about an inch, keeps the oil in the pan for deep fat frying of fish etc. The smaller volume, means less oil is needed to fill it. So this makes the pan a deal vs buying the chicken fryer and the round skillet. With the lid on, its a small dutch oven. Plus its fewer pans (two vs two plus a lid) in the old kitchen cabinet. I agree, this pan set is one of the best kept secrets of the Lodge line.
Cast iron is great for fat frying, that's deep fat, or saute. The lid has a tight seal that keeps in the juices, or splatter. Also with the tab on the end of the lid/pan you can lift the lid and it will balance staying open. Enough so that you can give things inside a gentle stir. Don't rock it while vigorously sraping the bottom pan without holding onto the lid though.
In case you were wondering, the lid is just big enough for one piece of French toast made with regular grocery store bread, not two.

I think most will agree that the presence of a Lodge cast iron skillet is the universal item you can expect to find in the simplest of camp or cabin kitchens to the finest of gourmet kitchens. It has a functional role yet to be reproduced by even the most sophisticated cookware in the industry.
In my opinion, the 3-Quart Indoor/Outdoor Combo Cooker is the best kept secret in the entire line of Lodge cast iron cookware and is the one piece I wouldn't be without. It's the only item of cookware (well, besides the coffe pot) I take when I go camping. The top is a great griddle for bacon, the bottom is perfect for eggs but I've truly never tasted better hash browned potatoes than when I cook them in the combo cooker. The tight fitting lid helps to quickly cook raw potatoes to moist, tender perfection that brown beautifully when the lid is removed. The skillet is deep enough for preparing a variety of fireside dinner menus. The more you use this cooker, the better it seasons itself.
Although I've never used my cast iron exclusively, there are those things my cast iron is exclusively used for. The word for this item is PRACTICAL! It also makes a practical gift at a practical price and I'm the one who gets the 5-star review whenever I give it.

This is my first piece of cast iron, so I was a little (I admit stupidly) surprised at how incredibly heavy this was, especially when the two pieces are combined to use as a dutch oven. The handles are also relatively short, which makes it more difficult to pick up, especially when it's hot. You will definitely need 2 really good oven mitts to handle this!
I also had to re-season it twice, since I used too much shortening the first time, resulting in a sticky film that wouldn't cook away. But once it was properly seasoned, I've loved using it. I use it often enough that the weight is never a factor because I just leave it on my stovetop even when it's not in use. I am amazed at how completely non-stick it is, even though I've only had it a short while. Just make sure the first couple of things you cook in it are fatty, like bacon, and nothing will ever stick to it, ever again.
It gets very hot very fast, and it heats evenly and cooks things VERY quickly, especially eggs. It also stays hot for quite a while longer even when you turn the heat off, which means it keeps cooking, so keep that in mind if you're not going to be moving your dish onto a different plate or bowl for serving.
Clean-up is also incredibly easy: a tablespoon of kosher salt mixed with canola oil to make a paste, scour this around with a paper towel, then rinse with water and dry. It takes less than a minute!
It is a little on the smaller side, which hasn't been a problem for me since I usually only cook for myself and sometimes one other person. But if there was a 5- or 6-quart version, I would probably want to get that one, especially if you cook for more than just yourself. And cast iron only gets better with age, so aside from upgrading in size, I see myself using this pot for a long time to come.

I am a total newbie to cast iron...why did it take me so long to try this?
The lid makes an excellent fry pan, (double duty). Try taking your favorite fish, (I use salmon), season (I use lemon juice, pepper, season salt, a little garlic powder and a hint of dill), sear it on one side, flip it and then put it in a 350 degree preheated oven for about 8 minutes, (till flaky). Oh it is mouth watering! This is so good because it sears the outside for maximum flavor, and the weight of it holds the heat beautifully while moving it to the oven, where it continues to sear the other side and bake the rest.
The non stick quality is unbeatable. I couldn't understand how this could be true...but it is the best!
Clean up takes all of hmmm, how long does it take to wipe a paper towel across it? Nothing sticks to it at all. It doesn't need to be washed...I just preheat it the next time I use it which keeps it bacteria free. And I use it so often I just leave it on the burner, LOL. I just love it!
As far as the bottom part of it...great item too. I use that mostly for deep frying foods, and stir frying. If I could give this one a 4 thumbs up I would, (since it is not just a lid and a pan, it is a lid, a fry pan, a baking pan, stir fry pan and a 3 quart cooker)!
I should note, when I first got this I thought it was pretty heavy. But now that is one of the things I like about it, it is solid and I know that I will NEVER have to replace this or buy another fry pan/cooker. I wont complain it would be like complaining that gold is too shiny.
