      Wasn’t going to get the 13.25” one as it was out of my budget but now you make it hard to resist… Meanie…

    Imagine getting donged on the face with one of these frypans lol

    • +1

      I brought a similar one from Aldi and it’s pretty heavy. You would have to be quite strong to wack someone in the face.

      • Has to be pretty heavy if it can stop bullets from hitting your butt!

  • Nice find OP. Just a headsup that you need to select the buyer for the prices to come up

  • This one has the "assist handle" for the same price.

    • what's the difference?

      • +2

        it has the assist handle
        its the same price

        • +4

          so the same pan with a handle condom?

        • +4

          For the uninitiated what's the difference between the 'assist' and 'helper' handle?

    • Title says "with Helper Handle" too… so essentially the same thing?

    • Helper Handle = Assist Handle

  • Don't know whats the difference?

    Pyrolux same size at $1 less with free prime delivery.

      Anyone care to comment why I am being negged?🤔

      • +6

        Likely because you just posted a link to a 2 door Daewoo as a substitute for a 2 door Ferrari offer.

        • +3

          It was just a question though.

        • lol lodge cast iron is more like a camry, all clad would be a ferrari.

      • +2

        because it was too late when they saw your comment about $1 cheaper when they brought the $27 pan.

        They said to themselves: FxxK! then gave you downvotes for good.

      • -1

        No name brand, probably made in China.
        No helper handle.

        Not a fair comparison.

  • Looks great but a bit small, might get the 15 inch version

    • True, just got 20" and 26" bacarrat id3 hard anodised pans reasonably cheap, just need a 29" or so better size. Got a 32" ALDI wok with lid haven't used but looks pretty massive.

      • +1

        32 inch wok? I gotta see that- pics please

        • It's more of a deep pan thing, but has a flat glass lid.
          Was only 30$ so not bad

          • @G-rig: are you sure it's 32 inch not cm ? 32 inch would be 81.28 cm wok. Yeah show us the pics :D

      • Is there a cheaper version then?

    • -2

      Guess all the downvotes can show a cheaper version then?

    • +4

      Gave you a vote - these type of silicone handle covers are pretty much a must for these type of pans. I have 5 - various sizes - and have one silicone handle for each. I got mine shipped from china "on the cheap", yep took a while but work great!

      This type of thing: https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Pot-Holder-Cast-Iron-Skillets-Sl…

      Those scrapers are a waste of time IMO. I have some, never had the need to use them - it's cast iron, you don't need soft things to clean it like non-stick junk.

      • I find the grill scrappers work great for the griddle pans

        • Yep, perhaps useful on the griddles - I'm a bit anti griddle, so mostly in the flat domain. (griddle give the char grilled look with none of the benefits - too low surface area contact for what/how I cook - sorta defeats the purpose of a heavy cast pan then hold most the product off the surface). I do have a griddle pan (cheapie) that I use for griddle grilling bread etc - but that's where it ends for me.

          • @iDroid: I like it for things like draining away fats, george foreman style

              @asa79: But fats are the delicious part!

  • Delivery kills it unfortunately.

    • Buy two, one for xmas present.

      • Before unwrapping it, the recipient might think they are being given a rock for a xmas present given the weight of the skillet.

      You can always use 2 of these.. ALWAYS!

    • There is a cult behind the Lodge brand - you’d get shallow fried by /r/cooking for suggesting an ‘inferior’ no-name product like that.

      I’m going to but one first thing tomorrow.

      • Kmart mum's swear by it though

      • Looking for the video of you at kmart later tomorrow in /r/youseeingthisshit

    • I have the Kmart one. It is actually really good. Some actually say cheap cast iron cookware can be better. Any how, can confirm it's iron, good size, once you season it in the oven with a light wipe of oil couple times it is excellent. nice even heat retention and solid.

      • tossing up between the lodge or the kmart. $28 vs $12. Is the quality the same?

  • +1

    Keep one in the car for self defense.

    • +1

      Not much good against bullets though: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRTn6sS4iNY

      • That's not going to be good for the seasoning

      • I love some gunpowder seasoning on my steaks.

        Looks like nothing penetrates more than 5 iron skillets. I'll buy 5 then.

  • thanks bought 2 for the free delivery haha

    • You wont regret it, I have 5 cast iron pans, often using 3 at the same time. Couldn't live without them.

      • +1

        I have a few variations, the square grill and the rectangular grills too. Excellent heat retention. From stove to oven to campfire

        • If I'm frying, then it's cast iron!

          Fry-ups need 3-4 pans minimum.

          1 * 13" for bacon
          1 * 13" for eggs
          1 * 10" for mushrooms

          If you're having snags too, then add:

          1 * 13" for sausages (or a 10" if you can't handle too many snags)

          This requires a good size stove with lots of space (eg, a large 6 burner).

          • +2

            @iDroid: And only 45 minutes to clean up afterwards :)

            • @TightTerry: Yes, there is that - but it's worth it.

              • +2

                @iDroid: Cast irons generally should be able to be just scrapped or wiped off. Most of the time when I use it, I probably spend less than a minute cleaning it. Cleaning the stove top from the grease tho…

                • @dmac: So true

                • +1

                  @dmac: Yep, I just add a little hot water and a slight scrub with a steel scrubber, rinse and dry with paper towel.

                  I'm sure many will balk at the "steel scrubber" but I've been doing it this way for years, all my pans stay in great condition and perfectly seasoned.

                  One of these suckers

          • @iDroid: Why would you use cast iron with heat retention for eggs, they take less than a minute to cook, take you 5 minutes to heat up the pan!, for a steak maybe.

            • @Polak: I don't use it for it's heat retention when cooking eggs. It's a great even heat and a great seasoned surface - cooks great eggs.

    • Willing to sell me one ? :D

      • yep, pick up only in ~ 2 to 3 weeks or when lockdown gets lifted if you are in Melbourne

        • Ohh not from Melbourne. But yeah will let private if I go there anytime soon and if you still have one unused.

  • +2

    Still shows in stock for me?

    • Yes just ordered (thanks OP)

      • same x 2

        • Just ordered 2 of these. Showing in stock..

    • +1

      Same. Not sure why it is marked as out of stock and I'm not sure how to fix it.

  • Pain in the arse to keep it properly seasoned I found. Got an enamel cast iron and its been a dream.

  • They won't deliver to Sydney anymore
    Anyone in Sydney that brought 2 and would like to offload one to me?

    • Hey mate, yeah i did.

      Dm me :) its meant to come mid october though.

  • Is there anyone in Adelaide who bought 2 and would like to offload one to me? :)

    • +1

      I bought two.

      • I’m guessing you’re located in Adelaide? Would you be happy to go halves on the cost? :)

        • +1

          Yes, I'll DM you when it's arrived in mid Oct.

        • Hi, it's arrived. I've sent you a DM.

  • Wtf seems like my account is borked. Nothing from Amazon US ships to my address.

    • +1

      I am also experiencing this, just now.

    • Check you're not shipping to a parcel locker address. I found that stopped most US shipments for me - changing it to my home address fixed it.

      • Amazon was broken for a short while this morning.

  • Will it work on induction?

    • Yes, it works with iron.

  • +2

    Is anyone else getting the message, "This item cannot be shipped to your selected delivery location. Please choose a different delivery location."

    • It seems to be for all US based items, at least the ones I have saved, not just this pan.

    • I'm getting this as well.

    • +1

      Yep seems to be something up with Amazon

  • Is anyone else getting the priority delivery option only available now? Can’t seem to choose another option….

  • -2

    aldi sells similar one for $15

    • +4

      Except they arnt that similar

  • What is the recommended best and easiest way to maintain these Lodge cast iron skillets? There's a bit of conflicting info out there, looking for some OzBargain practical wisdom.


      • +1

        Only thing to add to that is that when you're done cleaning and you've wiped them down with a tea towel, you can put them back on the burner for 2 mins to make sure they're dry.

    • +1

      Have one going on two years and I found as long as you dry it and oil it, you can't go wrong. Wash it however you want, but don't put it in the dishwasher!

      • Do you use canola oil to oil it? Do you oil the inside and outside (and handles?). Where do you store it once it is oiled? Does that dirty your storage area? Thanks for the tips
