1.0 out of 5 stars Unless you enjoy eating black paint, buy something else, November 13, 2008

This review is from: Heuck 33002 Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron 3-Piece Skillet Set (Kitchen)
These cast iron pans are heavy and appear to be of good quality except for the fact that after only two or 3 uses, I get black paint from the pan in everything I cook. I have some lodge cast iron pans and they are wonderful. Spend the extra $2 on lodge pans and you'll love them. The smallest pan in this set is useless.

The stuff used for "pre-seasoning" cookware made in China may be smaller cause for concern than the unknown waste being melted together in the blast furnace. Chicken Kiev anybody?

Lodge Logic is everywhere, but the handles are smaller than on this one, which is a problem with heavy cast iron. I don't even know what the reviewer is referring to with "black paint." It's a cast iron frying pan. The best type of frying pan I've tried. There's not much more to say about it, unless you make stuff up, I suppose. Anyone for more "made in China" hysteria? I think if the Chinese can make huge 50 inch LCD televisions, they can make an iron age product. This is the same cast iron pan that was sold under the Martha Stewart label, incidentally. So take it up with her. Personally, this is almost the only pan I need to use anymore. Better than any of the more expensive patented non-stick surfaces that companies try to sell you because they make more money off of them. And I am relatively certain this one safer. I have no idea what these two people are referring to, but this is a cast iron pan. Period. And it works great.

It isn't actually paint. Nobody paints cast iron. It's a bad seasoning job and here is how you can fix it:

Put in in your oven next time you use your automatic cleaning. Not only will your oven be clean, but so will your pan--it will clean right down to the metal and give you its original color. Then you can seasoning it PROPERLY to get it black and nonstick.
