LODGE MANUFACTURING COMPANY
Founded in 1896, the Lodge family has been making high quality cast iron for over a century. Joseph Lodge created a legacy that has lasted through more than half of U.S. history. Even through tough times like the Great Depression, the Lodge family has been committed to keeping their employees and their families afloat. Novelty items such as cast iron animals and garden gnomes were sold in order to keep paychecks coming and families fed.
The Lodge Manufacturing Company is still family run, with both CEO’s being the great-grandsons of Mr. Joseph Lodge himself. As technology has evolved overtime, Lodge has seamlessly stepped up to the plate with innovative products and patented technology.
PROUDLY MADE IN THE U.S.A.
For over 100 years Lodge has been dedicated to manufacturing quality cast iron products that can be passed down from one generation to the next. From summertime campouts to Sunday night dinners, Lodge is happy to be at home on your table.
Pancakes, eggs, and bacon somehow taste extra hearty when cooked in a heavy cast-iron skillet. Cast iron creates superior heat retention, heats evenly, and loves a campfire, unlike flimsier pans. Fry up a mess of catfish, roast a chicken, or bake an apple crisp in this generous 12-inch pan that features two handles for heavy lifting, and two subtle side lips for pouring. While the skillet comes preseasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated with vegetable oil before use. Whether used in a kitchen or camp, this virtually indestructible pan should last for generations.--Ann Bieri

Though it says the 10" Lodge Cast Iron Skillet comes pre-seasoned, you still need to season it a couple of times before use. I rub a generous amount of Crisco on bottom and sides, put it in a 350 deg oven for an hour, remove and wipe away excess oil. I will probably do this periodically.
Yes you can wash the skillet with soap and water after each use: wash, rinse, set on a burner, turn heat up fairly hot and let it dry thoroughly, then apply a little more Crisco to bottom and sides. Store.
I first bought the 12" cast iron and returned to buy the 8", too. I love these pans. To season the pan (yes, it is pre-seasoned, but...if you want the BEST non-stick pan...) just coat the pan with a light coating of cooking oil and put it in the oven (upside down) at 450 for 20 minutes. Then, turn the oven off and let the pan cool off. That's it! If you want to get really fancy, repeat this process 2-3 times. You'll have to chase a fried egg around the pan! Slippery!!
I have owned the pans for several months and these are the only pans I cook in now. They really hold the heat, and they really are non-stick...especially if you season them.
Yes, the pans are heavy, but you'll get used to it. I use these pans on the stove top and in the oven. The best part is when a recipe requires cooking in a pan and then transferring the contents into bakeware, so it can be placed in the oven. Nope! I just slide my cast iron pan into the oven and bake away!
This is my first experience with cast iron, so I did a lot of research before buying and using. I read all the other reviews about how to season the pan correctly.
When the pan arrived, I decided to try it, using the original pre-seasoning. I fried two eggs with a bit of butter, and the eggs cooked perfectly and slid right out of the skillet.
That's when I noticed lots of little black specks all over the back of the eggs. At first I thought it was little flecks of iron from the skillet. I called Lodge customer service, and learned that the black specks were actually bits of the pre-seasoning and safe to eat. I threw away the speckled eggs and decided to season the skillet myself.
Following expert advice, I applied a thin layer of shortening and baked the skillet at 500 degrees for one hour. The first cycle produced a beautiful black, shiny coating. Several coats are recommended, so after cooling, I added another thin layer of shortening and baked for another hour at 500 degrees. This time the coating felt sticky. Instead of a nice shiny black, it had a slight reddish tint.
When I tried to fry eggs after the second seasoning cycle, the eggs were stuck to the skillet and impossible to remove.
The problem was that I used to much shortening during the second cycle. Be sure to use a small amount and wipe off any excess shortening.
Looking back, the original pre-seasoning was just fine. There was really no need to reseason the pan. Just be ready to toss out the first batch of eggs if you see speckling and don't want to eat it!
Update: Six months later, the skillet is smooth as glass once again. It's a joy to use. My favorite little skillet! Hope you will like it as much as I do!
