    Just a note for those considering it, keep in mind that it is very heavy, and the handle does get very hot. You'd want to get the silicone handle with it, or just get it from aliexpress

    Is there a trick to using these? Do I have to heat them up for a bit before using etc?

    I got them the last time this was posted and I'm doing something wrong as everything sticks :S

    • +2 votes

      Yeah I definitely recommend heating them before use, I've noticed a much better level of performance if I heat it to a good temperature before cooking what I need. I read a few guides and they either recommend chucking it in the oven for a bit to get it to temp or heating it on the stove. Also make sure you still have seasoning on the pan, if not give it some new seasoning :)

      I agree, spray with cooking oil and heat first, enjoy!

      I find the preseasoning it comes with wasn't effective as the steak became stuck even though I pre heated the skillet for 5 minutes. I tried seasoning it in the oven and it seemed a little better but it's gotten a lot better the more I pan fry fatty cuts of meat. I heard some foods like tomatoes aren't recommended as the acid strips the seasoning so it's best to avoid cooking tomato based sauces until it's developed a solid coating.

    •  

      Google seasoning cast iron for the correct way to look after it.
      I find after cooking steak I will clean the pan quickly while the steak rests. It's much easier to clean while hot. I will even do a quick batch of gravy and that half cleans the pan.
      I now jve a pan that's really good with steak and I havent had it more than a few months.

    Got these last time. Had to say I underestimated how heavy cast iron is. Gained some bicep muscle washing these.

    Also had a problem with the delivery company named Fastway.

    •  

      Mine shipped with DHL from the US to Sydney then to Cairns, where they off-loaded to Aus Post for delivery to the Townsville area. It was under a week for delivery, I was damn impressed with DHL (not so much so with how long Aus Post took though), especially given this was just the free Amazon Prime shipping option.

      The woman at the post office did comment how heavy the box was when I picked it up. I haven't had a chance yet to get a feel for their weight whilst cooking and washing them though.

    •  

      I had issues with fairway too. After lots of calls and complains I finally had a few chats directly with delivery guy and are in same page. No issues anymore.

    •  

      Fastway is a sh*te courier company. Very slow.

    I'm a big fan of Lodge, I got this on a special earlier this year, I'm in the process of changing my kitchen around specifically so I have somewhere to put them on display.
    Obviously your deal is a more fiscally responsible option. But my pan has a TROUT on the bottom.

      That is….actually pretty cool

      I've had the deer pan in my wish list for ages but can't justify purchasing it whilst my other pan is adequate.
      Would love the full set. The only problem is where does one find bear and moose meat in Australia? Because you're only meant to cook the animal pictured, right?

    Are these better than Tefal? Thanks

    • +1 vote

      Mostly depends on the situation, but generally cast iron are better in almost every situation in holding heat, the versatility of being able to use them in the oven, gas, induction, electric stove tops, there is a bit more care towards using them but if you treat them right they will last for decades, I haven't been able to find any Tefal cast iron pans which are of similar price unless you were talking about the conventional non stick pans?

  • +3 votes

    Got this set from your last post, definitely worth the money, I've only made a cookie in the 10.25" skillet which came out perfectly and was a breeze to clean and season after, if you're using skillets make sure you heat them up to reasonable temperature before chucking anything into them as if the pan is cold then the contents will be more prone to sticking, the pans can hear up really quickly even on low settings (I'm using gas)
    Will be happy to answer questions

    I'm new to this, why does one prefer a cast iron over a nonstick or ceramic cookware?

    • +1 vote

      they're great because they don't scratch, unless you're flipping your grits with an angle grinder. As mentioned above you can whack them straight in the oven off the stove for say, a reverse sear. They last essentially forever, as long as you take the minimum of care with them. And they heat very evenly.

    • +2 votes

      I switch due to some health concern with Teflon and alluminum, which may be insignicant or not matter to everyone. Non stick also requires some extra delicate handling.

      That said, very hard to switch from non stick to anything else imo if you are way used to it.

      To add to all the other reasons already mentioned, food tastes better coming from a cast iron pan.
      I'm not sure if it's the layers of seasoning from all of the previous meals or if it's because it heats the food so evenly, but it imparts a delicious BBQ-esque taste that non stick and stainless steel could only dream of.

      Then there is the health and environmental benefit of not having PTFE coatings burning away promoting carcinogenesis and needing replacing every year or so.

      If you are new to cast iron, it takes some time getting used to. In my opinion, stainless steel and cast iron (enamelled or not) are the way to go to avoid harsh chemicals in the cookware. Many recommend Ceramic, they are light weight but not sure how much of the aluminium underneath gets exposed. Also, cast iron gets better with use over time.

    is there an amazon prime trial? and can I sign up to get this delivered for free? Does anyone know?

  • -1 vote

    Hi all, apologies if this is a dumb question but I can't see how the price is AUD92.72. Assuming that I join the Prime trial, is this the advertised (on Amazon US) $US55.96 converted to AUD (my calculation yields closer to AUD80 which is the puzzle)?

    On the Prime trial, what's to prevent joining up and cancelling multiple times, or is it only possible once per registered email address?

    TIA

    •  

      One Prime trial per email. Multiple trials possible with multiple emails. Some say Amazon will stop you receiving any more trials if it detected excessive trials with the same delivery address and credit card.

    •  

      Stick to the Amazon au site. You're not including shipping fees and import duties.

      Good way to get banned, but if you want to abuse free trials go ahead.

      •  

        Thanks for replies and advice. I'd probably mainly use the Dutch oven too. Wasn't planning on multiple join ups, just wanted to understand how Prime works. It seems OOS now anyway. I might be still missing something, ordering on AU site the price was way above $92.72 - $182.03, why would you suggest sticking to the AU site?

        •  

          If you're a prime member, the AU site also lists US items that are eligible for free shipping, much easier to navigate that way. When you look at the US site, it will list all items that are eligible for shipping to Australia, but most of them will have a shipping fee + import duties.

          If you're going to go for multiple free trials, check out reddit. After a while it looks like you can't create new accounts.

          I would just check out this thread to see if the free one month extension is still possible:

    If you missed out perhaps take a look at Aldi for their $15 cast iron pans, 28cm just over 11 inches. https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/476584
    They were still available at one of the Aldis I visit (the smaller Aldi was out of stock)

    I've used lodge for many years and they are great but found that I was only using the Dutch oven and a 12" pan, I had two more pans that I barely used. Just consider the weight and space these things take up before buying a whole bunch of them.

    I haven't used the Aldi version yet, but can say it has a rougher surface than lodge. There are ways to smooth it down with power tools, but I'll use it first and see if it's good enough as is.

    If you're new to cast iron and are scared about stuff sticking, go buy some coconut oil spray and make some eggs. They'll slide right off.

    I got a chainmail cloth for my cast iron (le creuset) and I have never been happier. Combined with a stiff bristle brush and cleaning them is a breeze.

    •  

      I was interested in those chainmail scrubbers, I use one of those stiff euro cloths at the moment, but I like the idea of something that doesn't need replacing.

      Why do you still need the stiff bristle brush with it though?
