The Lodge Cast Iron 5-inch square Skillet is wonderful for cooking individual eggs or other small dishes. 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 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.

This little skillet hangs on my wall just by the stove, ready to do all those little jobs like grill just one sandwich, cook one burger, melt the butter, fry a single egg or make Eastern & Western omelets. While it isn't the most-used pan in my arsenal, it is certainly close.
A word about "pre-seasoning" - Lodge pre-seasons their cast iron these days in order to prevent it from rusting during shipment and storage. That pre-seasoning should not be taken as anything like the well-aged, tremendously non-stick patina that cast iron acquires over use and time. It is not particularly non-stick when you first bring it home, particularly for things like eggs. You will need to use fat in the pan and the more you use it, the more non-stick it will become. There is a trick to cooking in cast iron, especially when it is new. First, let the pan sit over a burner until it becomes hot before you add your grease. That way food won't stick.
Do remember when you wash this to put it over a burner for several minutes to evaporate any moisture and then coat it with a dab of oil.
Grandma's $0.02 - this is the handiest pan I own - and made right here in the USA. Highly recommended
