The Good

Everyone knows how annoying and time consuming it can be when food gets constantly stuck to the bottom of the pan.  The Lodge 12″ Pre-Seasoned Skillet removes all worries thanks to its pre-seasoned surface that prevents sticking especially when frying fish or eggs.

The heavy cast iron material makes cooking easier because it heats faster and maintains heat long enough to cook foods even at low temperatures.  This unit can withstand heat better than other Teflon pans, and can also be used in the oven with no worries.

The way the skillet was designed allows even distribution of heat.  This is great because you won’t have to worry about raw or burnt parts in the food you cook.  The result is delicious food cooked in all the right places.

The extra handle is a great addition as it makes handling the pan much easier.  You won’t have to worry about spilling the pan’s content by carrying it with one hand.  Now, you can use both hands to carry the pan which is way safer and will minimize accidents.

The subtle lips on the side of the pan are very useful especially when pouring sauces or soups into small bowls.  Not only does it make it easier to pour food, but it also prevents spills.

Even though this skillet may require some specific cleaning instructions, they are very simple to follow.  All you have to do is wash it with hot water without using soap, towel dry the unit and then spray it with a little oil so it can retain its non-sticking properties.

Compared to other non-stick skillets, the Lodge 12″ Pre-Seasoned Skillet is great for indoor and outdoor use and can be used on campfires, which is great if you were thinking of bringing this unit with you on your next camping trip.

The Bad

The Lodge 10”/12″ Pre-Seasoned Skillet is made of a heavy cast-iron material, so this unit is a bit heavier than the usual Teflon or non-stick pan.  Its weight may require some getting used to.  If you are not very strong, you might need to carry the pan with both handles all the time, even when it is empty.

The extra handle is useful, but this pan retains heat so well that it may get too hot to handle without a thick potholder.  So you should be very careful not to touch the skillet while cooking or while it is still hot to prevent incidents.

Our Verdict

All in all, the Lodge 10”/12″ Pre-Seasoned Skillet is an outstanding product. It is incredibly easy to use and retains heat marvelously. It is also very convenient to handle thanks to its twin handles.

This unit will save you tons of time and energy thanks its amazing heat retention properties.  This unit also shows impressive non stick capabilities and is made from heavy duty materials that will ensure that this skillet will last you for a long time.

This unit is definitely recommended for people who are looking for a durable piece of cookware that can cook food fast and that can be used for any task, may it be in the oven or over a campfire. All in all, the Lodge 12″ Pre-Seasoned Skillet is a professional grade piece of cookware that everybody should have in their kitchen.
