5.0 out of 5 starsEvenly cooked steak, ease of cleaning, value for $
Reviewed in Singapore on 3 December 2020
Amazing product! , was initially worried if the pot would rust easily and difficult to be cleaned. Turns out it was Easy. The pot is also deep and this prevent oil spills, now my steaks gets cooked evenly! Value for $
This was my first cast iron pan like ever. I wasn't impressed with it. It's too heavy. Cleaning is, as usual, big pain. I stopped using it after a while and now it has started to stink. Seasoning goes away after few uses despite taking all care. Some rusting has appeared. I hope can get it revived if I've to use it in the future.
The pan is ok. I was under the impression that being a Prime member meant shipping is free. I really needed this pan but was charger a shipping fee of $56.00. It said potentially not definitely, there is a difference!!! AMAZON what are prepared to do to insure that shipping is free for Prime members and if that’s not the case the writing should be bold!!!
Lodge is a good company, I owned several Lodge pieces and they all work perfectly. This one, somehow cracked on arrival. I do know if it was defected during trans. or amazon didn't check carefully before shipping.
This is a great pan, you can use it as a braiser, a stir fry pan or a deep fry pan. If you have a lid for this, it can also be used as a bread baking pan or dutch oven. I like it. The size is perfect for 1 dish.
Let me preface my review with this statement: There is nothing intrinsically wrong with this skillet. That said, I've found others, from Lodge, that do the job better and are more versatile. You may as well get the 6qt Enameled Dutch oven and use that. It has myriad more uses and doesn't suffer from the no tomatoes problem. I even spent the time and ground out the interior of the pan and still have only used it twice. That's not to say that regular cast iron has no uses: My other main pan is a 15" Lodge skillet that I ground out and flattened the inside of. That pan likely can cook eggs with much less stick than an enameled pan for instance (actually, there's no question there). This pan simply lacks a feature that can't be filled elsewhere in a superior way.
