The American-based company Lodge has been fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century. Now lodge has added a new line of seasoned steel skillets. This handy 10-inch seasoned steel skillet is the only pre-seasoned and ready to use out of the box steel pan in the market place right now. Each skillet is pre-seasoned with natural soy bean oil. Maintains very low and very high temperatures, making the pan a highly effective and versatile cooking piece. It performs well in residential and professional kitchens as well as outdoors. Made of 12 gauge carbon steel. Steel is a high density metal that does not retain odors. If maintained correctly, it will last a lifetime. Thickness of the cooking surface allows the pan to heat up quickly but also retain the heat needed for even cooking. The handle angle is conducive for both stove top and oven cooking. Each handle is attached to the skillet with 3 secure rivets. As a result of the pre-seasoning process, you may see a blister or bubble of oil at the southern-most point or at the end of the handle of the cookware piece. The cookware is hanging as it rides through the electrostatic sprayer and commercial conveyer ovens at very high temperatures. This allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the pores of the cookware which creates an easy release finish. If visible, it will rub or flake off with your finger, leaving a brown spot. Don’t worry, it’s not rust but a seasoned spot that is brown, indicative of the varnish stage of seasoning. The brown spot will turn black with use. Made in the USA.

First impression cooking with this pan… Not good. I had high hopes for this product especially being an owner of several Lodge cast iron products. Received the carbon steel skillet tonight and attempted the egg test. The pan appeared to be seasoned well per factory seasoning process like the other cast iron items I’ve received (no chips or dings). I added a generous amount of olive oil and let it heat a while on medium (gas burner). Cracked the egg and dropped it in and it stuck to the pan almost immediately. I’ve uploaded some photos of the…

This has been a disappointment. Unlike other carbon steel pans I discovered carbon steel pans last year, and prefer their lighter weight, quick heating, and easy cleanup vs. cast iron. I’d had my eye on this mega-pan for a while, but assumed it would be too big. I finally bought it , and it’s excellent, even just cooking for one. If I want the pan to have hot spots in the center and a perimeter that keeps food warm, I put it over the long center burner. If I want the pan to heat evenly, I use the big circular burner. This pan also goes in the oven, it goes…

This has been a disappointment. Unlike other carbon steel pans, the cooking surface on these is very rough, so it is next to impossible to season it to the point where it is reasonably nonstick. Furthermore, the factory seasoning is pretty bad. This is mostly just a thinner version of a traditional lodge skillet, which is okay if that is what you’re after But if you want a carbon steel skillet for a glass smooth cooking surface that you can season into being nonstick, then this is certainly…
