Looking for wallet-friendly cast-iron cookware? Check out Lodge cookware. Lodge produces an extensive line of cast-iron cookware on the market including skillets, grill pans, Dutch ovens, fry pans, biscuit pans, and more. Need more convincing? Fine Cooking recently named the Lodge Enamel cookware's 5 Quart Dutch oven the overall best among several leaders in the category. This cooking magazine called the Lodge cookware “well-designed,” and commented that, “the graceful loop handle feels great in hand and stays cool on the stovetop." Here are some great techniques to help you care for your Lodge cast-iron cookware:

  • After each cooking use, clean the cookware with hot water. Avoid harsh detergents.
  • Do not place a hot utensil in cold water - thermal shock can cause the cast-iron to crack or warp.
  • Immediately towel dry the cookware, and while still warm, lightly coat all surfaces with oil or cooking spray.
  • Never wash cast-iron cookware in a dishwasher.
  • Store cookware in a cool, dry place. To allow air to circulate, place a folded paper towel between the lids and the pot and pans.
  • At the first sign of rust or a metallic taste, simply scrub off the rust and wash the cookware with mild soap and hot water, then season with oil.
