Product Description

Package Quantity:1  |  Size:5 Piece

The Lodge Cast Iron 5-piece set features the most needed cast iron cookware pieces for your kitchen. Cast iron is a multi-functional cookware that works wonders with slow-cooking recipes and all your favorite foods. Cast iron loves a campfire, a stovetop, or an oven, and can slow-cook foods without scorching. It retains heat well so you can sear meat at higher temperatures and will keep your delicious meals warm for a long time. Whether used in a kitchen or camp, theses virtually indestructible cookware should last for generations. Made of cast iron, this cookware evenly distributes heat from the bottom through the sidewalls. Sporting a stylish black color, the cast iron Skillet looks good in most kitchens and it doubles up as an excellent source of nutritional iron. Cast Iron, like your grandmother used, still ranks as one of the best cooking utensils ever made. It gives you a nearly non-stick surface, without the possible harmful fumes generated by preheating chemically treated nonstick cookware. The American-based company, Lodge, has been fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century. The black patina given to the cookware by the factory seasoning process is, in fact, vegetable oil that has been baked into a piece of cookware that has emerged from an individual sand mold. This coating of oil is a functional application and not a cosmetic application.  The cookware is hanging as it rides through the electrostatic sprayer and commercial conveyer ovens at very high temperatures.  This allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the pores of the iron which creates an easy release finish. As a result of this process, you may see a blister or bubble of oil at the southern-most point or at the end of the handle of the cookware piece. If visible, it will rub or flake off with your finger, leaving a brown spot.  Don’t worry, it’s not rust but a seasoned spot that is brown, indicative of the varnish stage of seasoning.  As a matter of fact, this is the color of home seasoned iron until it has been used several times. The brown spot will turn black with use. While the skillet comes pre-seasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated with vegetable oil before use. After cooking, we recommend cleaning with a stiff nylon brush and hot water. Using soap or the dishwasher is not recommended, and harsh detergents should never be used. Towel dry immediately cleaning and apply a light coating of oil to utensil while it is still warm. Set includes 10.5-inch round griddle, 8-inch skillet, 10.25-inch skillet, 5-Qt Dutch oven and 10.25-inch iron cover. Iron cover fits both the 10.25-inch skillet and the Dutch oven.

Lodge 5-pc Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Cookware Set

Product Uses

The 5-pc collection is a great starter for all the essential cast iron cookware pieces for your kitchen.

Griddles are essential for big breakfasts, quesadillas, roasted vegetables, or grilled sandwiches.

Skillets are great for sautéing, frying, stir-frying, searing and baking on the stovetop, in the oven, and over fires for endless recipes. While dutch ovens are perfect for soups and stews.

  • Dishwashers, strong detergents and metal scouring pads are not recommended, as they remove seasoning.
  • Don’t use in the microwave.

Care Instructions

Basic Care

  • Hand wash. Dry immediately - even before first use.
  • Rub with a light coat of vegetable oil after every wash, enough to restore the sheen, without being “sticky”.
  • Soap is not needed. If no soap is too scary, wash with mild soapy water and dry and oil immediately.

To give a little background - I had never cooked with cast iron prior to this set. I grew up with teflon, tried out the "titanium waterless cookware" (which was super expensive) and everything burned. I went back to teflon, but my last set was getting all scratched up and needed replacing so I was looking into other options. I had heard through my best friend who is a nutritionist that cast iron is the healthiest and best, but was intimidated by the maintenance. Long story short, after researching everything I decided for the price it was worth trying (half the cost of a Rachael Ray or Paula Deen teflon set). I'm so glad I did! This really is super easy to maintain, I just wipe with a towel after every use and grease slightly with crisco to restore the sheen and they look brand new! I didn't even have to wash or retreat, as they were non stick right out of the box. I liked that they cook evenly and the only other real "adjustment" I had to make to my cooking style is remembering to wear an oven mit when handling. I'm super pleased with this set and highly recommend it!

I rarely write reviews even though I buy so much stuff on amazon. This cast iron cook set is absolutely awesome. It is such a good value for the money (don't even talk to me about the $1400 All Clad set I just bought). I bought this for camping but have used it for regular cooking and it works so well. I researched seasoning the iron and decided that I would season with a thin coat of flax seed oil at 500 degrees for an hour. I did this 2 nights in a row and then cooked with them (turn your oven exhaust fan on when seasoning or your smoke detectors will blast away- dont ask me how I know this). One site said do 6 thin coats over 6 days which I may do eventually. Even after 2 thin coats, there was no sticking to chicken curry in the frying pan, and baked banana bread in the dutch oven. I coated a paper towel with oil and left it in the bottom (youtube dutch oven camping trick) and the bread just slid out when turned upside down. The part that did touch the side just wiped off with a paper towel. No washing, no soaking, no scouring needed. The key is keep the iron dry, don't soak it, keep it well oiled after use (I put a little flax seed oil on after each use). Iron is so much healthier than teflon. It's so much cheaper than aluminum/copper/steel. I want to send the All Clad back now..

Just like everyone else who has used this product, I love it.

You probably already know that Teflon is bad for you and the chemicals seep into your food when you cook on it, so I'm not going to beat that dead horse.

Just a few tips about this stuff...

Yes it comes pre-seasoned, but don't think it's perfect and good to go. You'll still need to season it yourself, spend the extra few days of baking it in the oven and it'll be worth it. Don't get me wrong, the pre-seasoning is great, just not perfect. It'll take many years for you to finally have that perfect seasoned pan.

After you're done cooking, let it sit and naturally cool down (move it to a cool spot on the oven). If you put it in the sink and immediately rinse with water the sudden temperature drop may crack and ruin the cookware.

Always follow the instructions for maintaining the cookware.

When I was young I remember mom always going to that big, square, heavy frying pan for breakfast. I couldn't understand why she was so upset about it when I lost it during a camping trip. Now I know. Real sorry mom.

This is an excellent starter set. So far I've used it for burgers, steaks, eggs, pancakes, pigs-in-a-blanket and now I'm hungry again. If you read a little about cast iron on the Internet you'll learn about all the virtues. This Lodge set has all those virtues and no flaws I can see IF you do a little more seasoning before using the pieces.

All of these pieces come pre-seasoned but don't let that stop you seasoning again. I've seen a couple of reviews that make mention the pieces don't have the non-stick features of cast iron. What I found is by going through the seasoning process before first use and then for the first couple of uses using a little more vegetable oil (I'm using Crisco) then you will have no problems. After each use I clean the pans with fresh water, no soap, put them on a medium burner to dry and add a little more oil. Once properly seasoned at home the cheese stays with the pigs instead of sticking to the pan.

The set is functional and I think beautiful. I would like to see a small sauce pan and a griddle added to the set as I think these are essential. Also, I purchased the cast-iron Dummies book and found it pretty helpful both in how to care for the cast iron as well as how to cook with it. There are plenty of fun recipes to try out. Another thing I did but not sure it was really necessary was, after reading some reviews of pot holders (these things get HOT and stay hot) there was a suggestion pointing me to gloves used by welders.

I used to be intimidated by cast iron pans.... I used non-stick for the most part then noticed that none of those pans last very long even if properly cared for. I was pretty diligent to use only plastic on them but inevitably they always got scratched somewhere down the line. It was also not recommended to put them at high temps and if I had a recipe that required both the stove-top and the oven I'd have to change out my pan- very annoying. Buy these and you'll never have to repurchase one again- even if it gets rust! I honestly use at least one of these items a day, for the most part. Very reliable and doesn't get rusty if you look up how to take care of it. I only use a paper towel to clean after use for the most part. For stubborn bits that stick and for fragrant dishes such as fish, stir-fries, etc.- I scrub out the pan using a nylon brush using hot water- NEVER soap! I then dry it, put the pan on the stove to make sure any excess water is removed and then re-season with oil before putting it away. The pan gets exceptionally hot so for the germiphobes out there that insist that soap is the only way to sufficiently clean pots and pans- cookware becomes sterile at 212ºF. Cast iron cookware reaches around 400ºF in 4 minutes on medium heat- more than sufficient. This process only takes a few minutes, often less time than scrubbing out nonstick or stainless cookware. You can also use coarse kosher salt and oil to get stuck on food removed from the pan with a paper towel. It really isn't as high maintenance as you'd think so don't be scared! To prevent food (i.e. eggs) from sticking in the first place- make sure to preheat your skillet for a few minutes to get it scorching hot, add a little bit of butter or oil, and then crack open your eggs.Read more ›
