The Lodge Cast-Iron Skillet is perfect for first-time cast iron users, because it's inexpensive and comes already preseasoned. This frying pan is extremely durable, compatible with any heat source and has a wide range of uses.
Pro Comes preseasoned for immediate use
The Lodge skillet is perfect for people not familiar with cast-iron cookware because it comes with a layer of seasoning and can be used right away. The non-stick properties improve with further seasoning. This can be done by either cooking greasy foods in it for the first few times or seasoning with oil/lard (see Care Of Traditional Cast Iron Cookware).
Con Needs to be cleaned and dried immediately after use
After cooking, food should be removed immediately and the skillet should be cleaned. It can be scrubbed with a nylon/plastic brush if needed. Then it should be washed in warm water, dried off completely and wiped down with cooking oil.
