    We sell the Lodge brand in our store and it is great.. .. Our choices are smaller.

    My wife's newest cast iron baby is this one, a French brand, it weighs an actual ton, and retails around $450.00. It is almost too heavy to carry to the pantry.

    Thankfully the Williams Sonoma Store in town is closing for good and we bought it for a song as part of the store closing sale.... My wife is very happy, and that's a good thing!

        Something about cooking on cast iron that makes it better. We are big fans of quality enamel ware too. We have had good success over the years catching sales at Zwilling (on line) and Williams Sonoma. Zwilling always has a sale going.

            Is this the same pan that was in the movie Michael with John Travolta?

              Cast iron is the best. For years, we went through myriad coated nonstick cookware, both high-end and cheap. They're all great when they're new but they don't hold up.

              Recently, we "rediscovered" the few cast iron pieces I used way back when I was a bachelor. A couple different size round skillets, a large square skillet, and a large griddle that spans two burners on the stove. I payed $3 for it in a hardware store more than 40 years ago. I wonder where you'd find something like that today and what it would cost.

              They require a "break-in" period but once done and properly maintained, there's nothing better. Throw out your shifty plastic spatulas.

              We used to hardly ever have steak in the Winter because the grill just doesn't cut it when it's 20 degrees out. Turns out, my wife makes some of the best steaks I've ever had in that square skillet.

                I’ve been using Alton Brown’s cast iron pan method for steaks for years. I also use it to cook extra think pork chops now that I only cook to medium.

                  I love cast iron . Makes great soups , can be used as a pressure cooker or slow cooker if you get the right ones . Dutch ovens , chili pots . Not a fan of the over priced French stuff as stated the enamel always chips . And is major pain in the ass to clean , everything sticks to enamel.

                      You could fry a whole cow in that thing. Is that part of the new George Foreman outdoor grill ?

                        You have to scour ebay for a Griswold or a Wagner. The new CI has a funky texture that allows them to factory season the cookware, its too rough.

                          It's shot blasted. Some say it's better, I mildly disagree. If you want smooth, sand it yourself and re-season. I season in the outdoor grill, because it doesn't smoke up the house.
