Amazon Shoppers Are Obsessed With This Cast-Iron Skillet
It’s so affordable you’ll want to buy two.
A cast-iron skillet is a kitchen workhorse. You can make everything from pizza to cookies in them and, if you treat them right, they’ll last you a lifetime — maybe even longer. That’s why we weren’t surprised to hear this Lodge 10.25-Inch Cast Iron Skillet is a number-one best seller on Amazon.
For one thing, take a look at the price. For less than $15, you could be just a day away (yup, it’s Prime eligible) from searing a juicy steak. Let’s be honest, the price of the pan is probably less than you’ll spend on that cut of meat anyway. On top of that, the pan comes pre-seasoned, ready for stovetop or oven use upon arrival. We also love using cast iron on the grill!
Amazon reviewers love it, too.
One review raved, “This pan never leaves the stove. I use it at least once a day, it is so versatile.”
“I am really glad I took a chance and got this pan. Once your cast iron is well seasoned it is non-stick. I paid about $15.00 for this skillet and five years, 7 months later it is in perfect condition and likely will never need replacing,” said another.
Before you jump right in, keep in mind cast-iron cooking requires a bit of prep work. Many reviewers claim the pan did not come seasoned enough, meaning everything will stick to it upon first use.
