The pot meets our needs for something smaller, however the lid was defective on the edges. The finish was bubbled and peeled when washed. According to Lodge that can happen during the curing process. We contacted Lodge and they immediately sent a replacement lid which had the same defects. Their customer service suggested we re-season the lid to seal the spots. We have decided to live with it as is.
Lodge has Excellent products, but this one had poor finishing around the rim of the pan. I found it extremely heavy for daily use. The seller assured a next day delivery but I got the product after 10 days that too after constant followup.
Not as good as my other lodge cast iron. I have seasoned it and take care of it but it is peeling and rusting already, and it makes me wonder if it’s a real Lodge cast iron. Have never had issues with my lodge in the past. I’m not sure if I need to Contact someone.I keep seasoning to see if it helps, but no luck.
The problem is that the lit doesnt fit snug And also there are good amount of inconsistency. On the lid there are bare metal on the lip. The casting isn’t good. But it will do the job good. I would say strip the seasoning to bar metal and smooth it out a bit and re-season with some grape seed oil. The lid isn’t even too
Overall it looks good. A few minor defects hopefully will not cause problems. I will review it again after a few uses. Concern about the warning about not cooking with acidic foods. Decided to return it.
Thanks for the fast delivery, the product generally is okay and same size with my old 24cm round cast iron dutch oven. But check carefully found some scratches on the lid and have rust with the hand. Maybe that is the reason for the cheap price.
