Product Description

Package Quantity: 1

Designed for the gourmet, the Lodge Chef Skillet is great for omelets, cornbread or sauteing. This unique 10-inch skillet has sloped sides and features a teardrop handle. 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. Made of cast iron, this skillet 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. This pre-seasoned skillet is ready-to-use right out of the box. While the skillet comes pre-seasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated with vegetable oil before use. The Lodge seasoning procedure is a multiple-step process in which the seasoning oil is applied via an electrostatic spray system that coats the cookware, then it’s baked in commercial ovens at very high temperatures. This allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the pores of the iron. This seasoning process achieves a seasoned finish that would take many months of home use to achieve. Sometimes during this process, the seasoning oil can collect and create a bubble or slight drip at the bottom of the pan as it’s hanging through the production process. And that in turn can turn brown as it’s processed through the seasoning ovens. This brown spot is not rust but in fact, carbonized seasoning and will darken with use. The factory seasoning process makes Lodge cast iron products ready to use right out of the box, and the product over time “Just keeps getting better”. After cooking, clean with a stiff nylon brush and hot water. Using soap is not recommended, and harsh detergents should never be used. Towel dry immediately and apply a light coating of oil to utensil while it is still warm. 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. Measures: 10-inch diameter, 1.75-inch deep

From the Manufacturer

Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron

As the world entered a new century, Lodge reinvented the cookware world with Foundry Seasoned Cast Iron Cookware.

Lodge sprays vegetable oil onto the cookware, then bakes it on at high temperatures to create a natural, easy-release cooking surface for everything from Skillets, to Grill Pans, Camp Dutch Ovens and our Restaurant quality serving pieces.

Produced in our Tennessee foundry, the seasoning process won a 2003 Good Housekeeping “Good Buy Award,” leading to a world wide renaissance in Cast Iron Cooking!


Product Uses

Everyone from Martha Stewart to Campfire Cook Johnny Nix considers Lodge Foundry Seasoned Cast Iron Skillets essential cooking tools.

Utilize multiple cooking techniques – sautéing, frying, stir-frying, searing and baking on the stovetop, in the oven, and over fires for endless recipes.



Never underestimate Lodge Deep Skillets. A well-regarded workhorse in the kitchen or at campsites, these pans can deep fry, prepare soufflés or make soups and stews. Deep Skillets make amazing cobblers!


Their ridges allow grease to drain away from the food while creating tantalizing grill marks.

Our popular Reversible Griddles double the sizzle, featuring ridges on one side and a flat griddle on the other.


With our controlled metallurgy and exacting mold tolerances, Lodge Dutch Ovens deliver superior cooking performance, garnering Cook’s Illustrated’s “Best Buy Award.”

The original slow cooker, Cast Iron Dutch Ovens have been a kitchen staple in American homes for over two centuries.


From cornbread, to biscuits, bread loafs, scones and more, Lodge is traditional bakeware!

Nothing produces crispy crusts like Lodge Cast Iron and no bakeware grasps youngster’s attention like our Corn, Perch and Cactus-shaped pans!

  • 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.

Lodge is my favorite cast iron label because it is well made and inexpensive. Now it even comes pre-seasoned, although it still requires some additional seasoning before it reaches top nonstick form. This can be done by baking it with oil or bacon/ham grease or just by using it to cook a few times. The more cast iron is used properly, the more nonstick it becomes. If one learns to change cooking habits, following usage and cleaning instructions, better results will be achieved in short order.

Unaware of the Teflon industry unethically hiding their toxicity reports from the public and the government for more than 20 years (not to mention the toxins they dumped into the environment), I raised my children on Teflon nonstick pans. None of my food ever turned out with the flavorful browned finish that cast iron provides, but I was lazy and I bought into the idea of the new conveniences. Now that I know Teflon is actually dangerous to not only our individual health but to the planet, I've replaced all of my Teflon with cast iron, bought cast iron for my young adult children, and I'm trying to help them learn to cook on it so they too will learn that it is not only better for their health, but it also produces superior texture and flavor.

I started by going back and remembering how my grandmother used hers. It is all she used until she died at 91-years-old. Her cookware is still entirely useable and has been divided up among relatives.

Grandmother cooked everything on cast iron, and she knew how to use pieces in multiple ways so that she required fewer of them. For example, she used her large fry pan to cook homemade pancakes by turning it upside down on the burner and using the bottom as a griddle!

This is such a great pan for omlets because of the sloped sides that allow you to slide underneath. This would be a great first peice of cast iron for someone new to using it because of the size and it is pre-seasoned. I use it all the time & it just keeps getting better!

Nope, it's cuz Lindy stir-frys. Lindy has used cheap non-sticks skillets, expensive non-stick skillets and was considering the ones that cost a bomb in Williams-Sonoma (Lindy like shiny...oooh..., aaah...) when the kindly and knowledgeable saleswoman informed her that there was not a non-stick skillet on the market that could tolerate daily stir-fry even with the temperature correctly set to medium heat (err....yeah....) for much more than a year. This tallied exactly and precisely with Lindy's experience with non-stick coatings, no matter the price.

Sigh. Lindy is not made of money. Sigh.

So at the nearest Wally World, Lindy found this skillet in the clearance section without the instructions for seasoning. Half price. Score!

A quick internet search netted much advice for seasoning the pan.

Update (11/23/12): Here's the classic method for seasoning a pan.

From the Lodge website:

"Re-Seasoning your Lodge Cast Iron
While maintaining the seasoning (as in Step 5 above) should keep your Cast Iron in good condition, at some point you may need to repeat the seasoning process. If food sticks to the surface, or you notice a dull, gray color, repeat the seasoning process:

Wash the cookware with hot, soapy water and a stiff brush. (It is okay to use soap this time because you are preparing to re-season the cookware).

Rinse and dry completely.

Apply a thin, even coating of MELTED solid vegetable shortening (or cooking oil of your choice) to the cookware (inside and out).

Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any dripping.

Set oven temperature to 350 - 400 degrees F.

Place cookware upside down on the top rack of the oven.

Cast iron is safe (unlike teflon and other chemical nonstick surfaces). It's also very heavy. And sadly, Lodge cast iron pans have a rough surface, which make them that much worse with regards to sticking (slick cast iron surfaces are much more nonstick).

Lodge's comes pre-seasoned, but unfortunately the pre-seasoning is pretty bad. So the first thing you'll need to do is season it more. The easiest way to go about this is to cook nothing but bacon in it for the first several uses. In between batches, poor out the fat, scrape off the crumbs with a spatula or wooden spoon or whatever else you have, and wipe the pan several times with paper towels until you can't wipe up any more grease. This will ensure that you have the thinnest layer of oil on it. Then stick the pan in a 400 deg oven for an hour, turn off the oven, and leave the pan in there until it cools or until its next use. When you cook your next batch of bacon, repeat. Do this several times and your pan will be well seasoned enough to cook an egg on it.

Stuff can still stick to well-seasoned cast iron. If you get the stove temp right and add just the right amount of oil, you should be able to scramble an egg with minimal sticking. If the pan's too hot, your pan's gonna be a mess with egg stuck all over. If it's too cold, again, big mess. It takes practice getting the temp right, but you'll eventually get it. Thankfully, cooking meat isn't nearly as critical. Just preheat, add oil, and lay your room temperature meat in the pan (cold meat is more likely to stick).

There are a million other ways to season a pan, some better than others. Lard from the Mexican market is cheap and works great. Apply a thin layer until your paper towel cannot wipe up any more, bake for an hour, cool down, repeat.
