    I am not sure why but it says $40.14 postage for me, I am a prime member

    •  

      Purchase value to be above $49 for prime free shipping

      •  

        My understanding was all shipping is free with prime and most shipping over $49 was free for everyone?

  •  

    If I place two pans in it says free post, but one pan and a Blu-Ray ($59 worth), was $40.14 postage.

      Maybe the blu-ray isn't eligible for Amazon Prime and shipped by Amazon US?

    OzBargain in Urgent need for a standalone Silicon Handle deal. too many burned palms!

  •  

    I think the Blu-Ray was local but the pan was in the US

  •  

    Needs to be sold from Amazon US ~ else won't be free delivery

    Do the handles on these get hot?

    • +1 vote

      Yes. This is the idea of a cast iron pot (and why it comes with removable silicon grips)

      •  

        Thanks. So have to buy the grips separately.

      Yes, metal conducts heat

      As others said, you can just use a towel or an oven mitt to handle it.

      An advantage of the all metal construction is you can just chuck it straight into the oven without worrying about anything silicon / wooden melting.

        Silicone won't melt.

          there's a limit.

          i have a carbon steel pan with a removable silicone handle and it says it is only oven safe up to 200°c with the handle attached.

          (i think it burns, rather than melting)

            @devilbabies:

            (i think it burns, rather than melting)

            Most forms will degrade/burn, and it is based on many factors including temperature and length of time it is kept at that temperature, etc

            @oz-dave: True, but one correction per post is enough for a Friday. :)

            •  

              @banana365: Haha, I was being slightly dramatic for effect with 'melt' - but yes silicone will definitely burn in the oven as I've had the pleasure of finding out when I've baked magnetic silicone heat mats stuck to the bottom of a tray..

          •  

            @oz-dave: But it's easier to lose wood.

    how are these for frying eggs and other non stick required items? In need for an everyday fypan replacement. Cheers

      If the cast iron is seasoned well, it becomes basically non-stick.

        My wife was against me getting these last year now she loves them i do the cooking she does the cleaning. she was not sold on the non stick side of things but now i have trained her on the care of them she is all for me to get more.
        plus no teflon bits in our food.

          •  

            @OldGuyFromTheMuppets: great find, thanks for the tip, i had no idea you could buy Australian made,

            •  

              @farknos: I have some cast iron, but find the Aussie wrought iron is better for my needs. It is lighter than the cast iron but still retains the heat almost as much, while getting to an even heat more quickly. I very rarely use the cast iron now.

              As the posters above said if seasoned well they are non-stick, as long as you are cooking it hot enough. On low temps it will still stick on somethings, but then you are stewing the food, so the taste ain’t great.

              If you need to season or repair seasoning and it is all-metal I just stick them on the barbecue for an hour or so at 250C (lid closed) and it is back to being non-stick and rust-proof.

              •  

                @Public21: thanks for the tips, i jumped in feet first and ordered one, so just waiting for April delivery. just love the fact its made here, so few things are made in Australia anymore.

    •  

      I took up a similar deal months ago on the same pans. My wife and I have built a pretty reliable habit of cleaning and oiling the pan after use and it's the BEST NON-STICK PAN EVER.

      Do some research on how to care for your cast iron. If you forget though, it's not bad unless you do it all the time.

  •  

    Can someone please explain why are this so popular are they really worth it ? my frying pan is getting old is this a good replacement for it…

      It's basically cancer free than most chinese non-stick pans.

      They're relatively cheap, indestructible and will last forever if you take care of them.

    •  

      Best way to cook a steak (& great with Sous Vide) - you get that barbie taste on your stove. Just don’t be afraid to cook on a high temp for best results.

      And as others have said, if you look after them, they will be passed on to your kids.

  •  

    Is there any way to get free shipping on this with a US Prime account?

  •  

    LMS3 was $14 for quite a long time, not on special definitely for this.

    •  

      Nawww, it’s gone up to 19.95

    •  

      I paid $14 end of December except got delivered one instead of the 4 pack! Tiny little pan but got an immediate refund and got to keep the pan. Thought was a bit too small so didn’t reorder. My kids think it is the best PUBG model ever….

  •  

    I only want to buy one of Lodge Cast Iron Skillet w/Silicon Handles 12" or 10'' one, what else can I buy to make total order above $49 for free shipping, any suggestion is appreciated.

    •  

      I tried various items and none seemed to give me free shipping. I ended up just buying the 8" as well as the 12" and it came out at ~ $67 which is still a bargain considering Kitchen Warehouse are selling the 12" one for $79 alone.

      •  

        Thank you.
        Do you think you would use 12'' much? I thought 10inch would be quite sufficient.

        •  

          depends on your living situation and cooking habits.

        •  

          I cook for the family and do meal prep so the 12" is a good size for me. So yeah, like the above poster says it really depends.

  •  

    Hi OP

    I think there is something wrong with the links. If you use the "Go To Deal" link it shows product delivered from Amazon US and includes the silicon handle although pricing is weird for the 15" Skillet.

    If you click on some of your links in the body of the deal it shows product shipped from Amazon.com.au at a higher price and without the silicon handle.

    i.e the 8" skillet link in "Go to Deal" shows $25.09 with red handle but the link in the body for the 8" shows $38.95 and no handle.

    Also, the link to the 10" skillet is not working.

    •  

      Weird.

      All links are showing amazon.com.au and direct to the au site for me. Maybe you’re using a VPN or Amazon US account?

    •  

      +1 same here, the 10.25" says like $34 & no handle included..

      •  

        Edit: Fixed now…

        •  

          When I click the links on the body, the prices are higher than shown. How can I fix this?

    Can they deflect bullets?

  •  

    Isn't it better to get the super smooth cast iron stuff to help with the non stick properties?

    •  

      A decently seasoned cast iron pan can be effectively non-stick even if it starts a little rough. If it's really rough then go at it with a sander, then season it.

  •  

    I was keen to grab just one - Im in Melbourne is anyone else was keen to grab one with me to get near/over the $50 free delivery limit - DM me.

    Can these be washed in the dishwasher or is the preferred method to wash by hand?

      You should only use hot water, never detergent. Always oil afterwards if needed.

    • +1 vote

      Do not put them in the dishwasher, you'll ruin them.

      Should only use hot water, no detergents, otherwise you'll have to season them again.

      • +5 votes

        Once seasoned, you can definitely use detergent when hand washing. I do so every day. It’s just easier to keep clean. The seasoned surface can easily withstand detergent for a couple of minutes of hand washing.

        No soaking overnight and no dishwasher of course

        •  

          pasey gets it. Detergent won't effect well seasoned cast iron. Hot water, detergent and a nylon brush is fine. If something won't budge then boil a little water in the pan for a couple of minutes to soften it up.
          Anything acidic will start eating the patina but won't ruin the pan…just need to reseason.
          No dishwasher though.

  •  

    Pretty sure you can get cast iron pans from DFO shops much cheaper. I got my 12" pan there years ago for around $25.

  •  

    Hot damn, I regret ordering the 10.25inch from the last deal. Should've got a 12incher

    •  

      Why?

  •  

    Hi, can this be scratch with the normal metal spatula or has to use the silicone one? (Does it has non stick coating?)

    •  

      no, metal spatula is recommended.

        Fabulous. Thanks

  •  

    What types of food can be cooked in these? Will these be suitable for pasta with tomato sauce, Japanese curry etc?

    • +1 vote

      Acidic food such as tomatoes are not to be used, it can eat the seasoning and remove its non-stick properties. Cast iron its great for steaks, deep-frying, bacon, eggs, sausages, baking pies, pizza, cakes. basically anything with lots of fat/oils.

    •  

      I use it to fry my eye fillet steaks in duck fat.

    • +1 vote

      My wife does the occasional sauce or curry in my pan, which doesn't ruin it. I'm guessing that frequently doing sauces would break down the seasoning/non-stick but it can be recovered through normal use and proper care.

    Anyone want to suggest some Amazon US buys to help get over the shipping threshold? Doesn't have to be related to related to this deal.

      I picked up two metal wok turners for about $10.

    Thanks OP!

    Just picked up the 12" iron skillet and the 10.5" grill pan for $72.04 delivered…. and that's unbelievable pricing!!

    Local pricing on the grill pan alone is around $120… or about $80 if you get a "sale price".

    But a skillet and grill for $72?!?! Damn. Thanks mate.

  •  

    Have seen some skillets a few months back with detachable handles. Great if you want to throw it on the weber/smoker.

  •  

    Thanks OP.

    With these awesome prices finally decided to take the plunge and begin converting to cast iron cookware. Strangely exciting….

  •  

    These are the best pans for everything other than anything acidic like tomatoes etc.

    I have been using one for 3 yrs now and never buying any non stick pans ever again

    Yes they are heavy and if you season it well which is very easy, they will last u forever.

  •  

    For those looking for something useful but cheap to bump up to $50 I went for these pan scrapers:

      being told made in Chna

    If anybody in Perth wants me to order a pan for them, I can do so.

    Your benefit - You don't have to spend over $49 to get free postage if you have Prime. If you don't have Prime you benefit from the free postage.
