Lodge 30cm Cast Iron Skillet with Helper Handle $59.98 w/ Free Delivery @ Amazon AU

200

If you're looking for a new skillet and have been itching for a cast iron one like I have, here's a pretty modest price for one.

According to CamelCameCamel this pan usually only drops to this price every 4-6 months~
As far as brands go, Lodge is pretty respectable being made in USA - so it should be a quality product.

Very heavy too - so you can work off those calories as you cook.
RRP is around $89 in local stores.

    Isn't this the 10inch one that goes on special for $25 from Amazon US?

    P.S. I have one. It is awesome!!

      No, 10inches is 25.4cm not 30cm. This is the 12 inch model.

      For those who shunned the 8 inch model in the previous deal because of non-prime shipping cost, it's on sale for $29.95 with Prime.

        Thanks. Got my conversion wrong. 10" great for one, maybe I will get the 12" now.

        Although the 8" tempting for eggs

      Not sure why. I find it about the same effort as my usual frypan but better cooking.

      How do you know it's too much effort if you haven't used it! Don't be a defeatist!!!

      Cast iron is more durable and versatile than any other non stick pan and really isn't hard to look after…try it out.

      Pre heat and use a little more oil than usual. If bits get stuck put a little water in the pan and heat to loosen before washing.

    In the name of true ozbargain spirit, according to slickdeals, walmart is selling it right now at lowest price for 20 usd (30 aud). Yeah, tough titties, fellow Aussies.

      The aussie tax is real…

    I grabbed the last deal for the 12inch. I love it for cooking steak.
    I can do about 5 steaks at the same time, although, it's bloody heavy :)

    Are these a pain to clean?

      I clean mine straight away once i can just touch it. Use hot water and a soft sponge. Towel dry straight away.

        Thanks mate, so no soap? Any cons?

        •  

          Soap but only a little.
          Honestly, the weight is the only "con". My wife can't use it as it's too heavy.
          I love it though.

          Well seasoned cast iron has many thin layers of polymerised oil that builds up over time. Cast iron seasoning is not liquid oil and it can't be washed off with soap or detergent.

          •  

            @OzBragain: I hear what you're saying, but in order to get those many thin layers to build up, you can't go scrubbing them clean with soap or detergent after every use.

            People think these things need hard scrubbing to get all the "build up" off. It's that build up over time that makes the seasoning/non-stick layer!

            Each to their own I guess. But I've never soap cleaned my BBQ, and I've never soap cleaned my iron skillet. The outside of it sure, just to be able to handle it without it slipping about. But not the inner/cooking surface/sides. It doesn't need it. There's no crud, leftovers making in unhygienic… just a lovely even temperature non-stick cooking surface.

              Yes you can. Those layers aren't oil anymore and can't be removed by soap or detergent.

        Same. Very easy.

    • +1 vote

      They're actually incredibly easy to clean, whilst seasoned they are coated with oil and you shouldn't be removing oil from its surface, so it's as simple as wiping stuff out of it and leaving the layer of "grime" that is usually quite tough to remove.

      Do your best to keep it dry, but it's relatively rust resistant whilst seasoned.

    I have 3 of these skillets in different sizes. I absolutely love them. The crust they give steaks is brilliant

  •  

    I LOVE this pan!!

    All seasoned and lovely… cooking bacon and eggs on it…. *cue Homer Simpson- mmmmmm.

    It lives on my stove, I don't pack it away. Clean it the same way you clean a BBQ plate. Keep a BBQ scraper in the utensil drawer to scrap back the crud, then wipe it down with paper to get the leftover bits off. No water, no soap, definitely no dishwasher.

    Then a splash of fresh oil in it and wipe it down with a clean paper wipe. Doneski.

    No non-stick poisons, just clean and tasty food.

    Yeah it's heavy- but just leave it there! Mine lives on my induction cook top and I use it every single day.

      If you want to pack it away, I recommend lodging a nail into a kitchen wall and hanging it!

    Is this inferior?

    Price is $50 and same size.

      Random 'made in china' rebrand or a Lodge? No challenge here, easily worth the extra $10.

    •  

      I've heard problems with this pan in regards to the lettering on the base of the pan.
      It's embossed too much which can effect heating apparently.

    I was able to enter code APPONLY10 at checkout on mobile. Came down to $49.98. Thanks OP !

      Great catch! I tried to do this myself, but it said it wasn't eligible.
      Roll of the dice I guess.

    Just noticed the seller isn't Amazon but someone with no feedback. Buyer beware I guess?

      I might have bought the last piece sold by Amazon AU. Checkout page said there was only one in stock. Should wait for Amazon AU to get more stock, faster and better customer service than some third party seller.

    Thanks! I ordered one and used the $10 mobile app discount
