Product Description

Size: 12" | Color: Black

The american-based company lodge has been fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century. Now lodge has added a new line of seasoned steel skillets. This handy 12-inch seasoned steel skillet is the only pre-seasoned and ready to use out of the box steel pan in the market place right now. Each skillet is pre-seasoned with natural soy bean oil. Maintains very low and very high temperatures, making the pan a highly effective and versatile cooking piece. It performs well in residential and professional kitchens as well as outdoors. Made of 12 gauge carbon steel. Steel is a high density metal that does not retain odors. If maintained correctly, it will last a lifetime. Thickness of the cooking surface allows the pan to heat up quickly but also retain the heat needed for even cooking. The handle angle is conducive for both stove top and oven cooking. Each handle is attached to the skillet with 3 secure rivets. Made in the USA.

Size: 12"Color: Black
I had the pleasure of purchasing one of these pans at the Lodge Factory Outlet in South Pittsburg, TN a few weeks ago (more cast iron than you can shake a stick at!).

I purchased the 12-inch Seasoned Steel skillet for two reasons:
1. I've been using DeBuyer's 10-inch Mineral-B and find carbon steel pans to be my go-to pans, preferred over my All Clad, T-Fal non-stick, and even cast iron skillets.
2. My mother-in-law recently discarded her 12-inch cast iron pan because it was just getting to be too heavy, so I was interested in finding a substitute with few compromises.

First of all, I like this pan. Like other carbon steel pans, it's dead simple. It seasons easily and is very durable.

But this pan brings some negatives as well.

Pros:
1. Light weight. 12-gauge steel is significantly lighter than the 3 mm of the De Buyers in the same size.
2. Simple and durable. There's nothing to break, and no non-stick coating to scratch or flake off.
3. Allows for high-heat searing, and goes from stove top to oven very naturally.
4. The Lodge 12-inch glass lid fits perfectly.
5. It's made in the USA.

Cons:
1. The lighter weight relative to DeBuyer or even other Lodge cast iron means less thermal mass. Thermal mass is what makes those heavy pans perform so well. This pan is thin enough that the heat dissipates fairly quickly. If, for example, I prepare my skillet potatoes in a cast iron pan, the pan comes out of the oven at 375 degrees and stays too hot to touch for a good 15 minutes. With this pan, the cooling is much quicker, being "touchable" after only about 7 minutes (give or take). In short, it doesn't have the thermal mass to perform like cast iron or DeBuyer.

Bought this through another store because I couldnt wait for Amazon to get them. I will be buying other sizes from Amazon as soon as available though. This pan carries on Lodges tradition of quality American made cookware. The pan is made of nice thick steel(12ga I was told). Heavy but not as heavy as the 12" cast iron. It is 12" from side to side, aprox. 9.25" cooking area and has a 9" handle. The sides on this pan are not as steep as their cast iron. The factory seasoning finish is excellent with a few very tiny specks of oil build up. The pan heated up quickly and held heat for longer than I expected, but naturally, less than cast iron. I fried eggs and browned ham in it as soon as I received it today. Turned out very well with minor sticking, but cleans up very well. Sure to get better with time! Glad I added this pan to my Lodge collection!

I don't want to wait 5 minutes for a cast iron pan to heat up so I can make a small saute. I tried a de Buyer pan, but keeping it properly seasoned was a real pain. Lodge came up with a steel pan with a rough finish that mimics cast iron, and is just as easy to season and maintain. Yes, it's much thinner than cast iron, but I have plenty of cast iron pans when I need them. This pan gets a lot of use in my kitchen, mainly sauteing, but it also makes a decent paella.

Update. After a month of regular use I'm still pleased with this pan. My experience is a bit different from some who praise and hate the pan. Some reviewers say it heats evenly, but let's face it, it's 3mm thick, maybe a bit less, so on a gas burner at very high heat you will get hot spots, so it's not the pan for cooking steaks (don't toss out your cast iron pans). On the other hand, I don't know about the warping a couple of reviewer reported, but I heat the pan smoking hot almost every time I use it, and it holds up just fine. When hot, oil does flow a tiny bit to the outside of the pan, but the amount is so small I never noticed it until I read some reviews and checked it out in the kitchen.

The finish of the Lodge carbon steel pan is smoother than the pebbley finish of the Lodge cast iron pan. Also I was surprised by the weight. The Lodge 10" carbon steel pan weighed 3.1lbs, by contrast, the Lodge 10" cast iron pan weighed 5.3lbs. I expected the steel pan to be lighter.
Like others have noted, this pan arrived with a "chip". But on further inspection it's not a chip in the steel, but a chip in the seasoning. See pic, It looks like the pan is suspended by the handle while it is sprayed with the seasoning oil. Excessive oil collects on this edge, thanks to gravity. On either side of the chip, there is an extra thick layer of the seasoning. It is this thick layer that has chipped off. I won't return the pan, but I will season this exposed edge. If not for this slight flaw in the seasoning process, I would give it 5 stars.

After using this pan for awhile I can honestly say it is a very good one. Being made in the USA is a plus too. Lodge knows a thing or two about metal cookware.
The handle is long so it can be used over an open flame fire. The build quality is sturdy and it will last a lifetime.

There is a learning curve that took me about a month to figure out. Cooking temperature and proper seasoning are a must.
The factory seasoning is OK but it states eggs will stick. I re-seasoned it and it is now virtually non stick.
The more you use it the better it gets. Searing meat at high temps is great.

I enjoy stir frys and just about anything you want to cook you can do it in this pan.
It seemed expensive at the time but this pan is built to last and I won't ever need another in my kitchen. About half the weight of cast iron and that makes a big difference in handling. Heats up quick and cooks evenly. By the time I wrote this review my chicken breasts are done. Fits three boneless in the pan.
I recommend it!
