    I got this pan on the Qantas Frequent Flyer site for about 15,000 delivered. Poor bang for your point (if using this $25 price) but I figured I wouldn't be cashing them in any time soon.

      Reviews?

      •  

        haven't used it yet. wife wants to season it first, although it's pre-seasoned. Also my first CI pan so wouldn't know if it's good compared to another.

      •  

        I have been using one for couple of years atleast and they are great. If seasoning done, they dont need a lot or extra oil than usual for cooking. They are heavy but would last you forever as they are very robust.

        No more pans with black coating coming off and buying a pan. Also, a good stainless steel pan would be great as an extra pan since it is light and excellent to use.

          What is seasoning?

          •  

            @Seraph2052: Cast iron pans need special care in order to avoid rusting. Essentially burning oil on it before storing. You don't just wash and store these

            •  

              @krisspy: Thanks

            •  

              @krisspy: No they don't, as long as you don't scour them or leave them to air dry in the rack (use a scraper and tea towel instead) the seasoning will last for months and months.

            • +1 vote

              @krisspy: It's not just avoidance of rust, it's to create a better cooking surface. With proper treatment it can get almost as good as a non-stick surface.

          • +1 vote

            @Seraph2052: Coating the pan with any cooking oil like with paper towel or a cloth and put it in oven on high heat and it forms a layer of oil later and make it non- stick, pretty easy.

      • +1 vote

        Used correctly they're better than non-stick & much healthier as you don't end up eating Teflon or similar non-stick coatings..

        Season well & only use very mild soap when washing, if required after a saucy type cook-up.. Otherwise just scrape of debris & rinse under warm water. After washing, re-heat pan to evaporate water particles & lightly re-oil.

        •  

          What oil do you use?

          •  

            @RocketSwitch: Not OP but any neutral oil that has a high smoking point like rice bran; sunflower or canola oil is fine. Avoid olive oil to season

              @serg3: Thanks.

              I used coconut oil, thought might work a treat.

          •  

            @RocketSwitch: E/V Olive or Rice bran when high heat is required, has a much higher 'smoke point' = healthier.

            •  

              @Bunsen: I wouldn't use olive oil for high heat as the smoke point is generally quite low compared to other oils.

              •  

                @Jhonka: Exactly what i meant. Maybe i should've added a couple of commas into the sentence. Depends how u comprehend it i suppose..

                E/V Olive, or, Rice bran when high heat is required, has a much higher 'smoke point' = healthier.

                There you go.

    Just got mine yesterday.

    Do you have to cook with more oil to prevent sticking?

    Good value though, made in USA and free shipping for Prime members.

      depends what you're cooking.

      I typically reach for my cast iron when I actually want stuff to stick… gives you an amazing char/caramelisation on steaks, chicken thighs, burgers, dumplings, etc.

    anyone spk from experience with these and induction cooking?
    "Special Features Induction Stovetop Compatible"
    I have bought stuff in the past that touts induction compatibility, and so far have not been impressed - yup prob buying the wrong stuff. Kit I've tried either heats up very slowly, or even with heat cranked it's not as hot as some of the cheap IKEA equipment I've ended up having defaulting to instead. (or both)
    If this is as good as people say, i'll grab it but would like to get some thoughts on it first.

      I have induction & they're great..

      Being thick though will take a little longer to heat but I guarantee they get hot enough to smoke your oil!

    How's this compared to the $12 kmart ones

    •  

      From what I've read in the comments the cheapier ones, also the ones from Aldi will bulge up in the middle after some time. I have my lodge for ~8 years and it still looks like day 1. One thing to avoid though is to pour cold water into the hot pan, it can damage the metal.

    I bought one a year ago and this is my favourite pan now. It isn't as hard to maintain as everyone says. You have to get a chain scrubber.

    First few cooks I put a layer of grapeseed oil after cleaning and now I don't even do that. Rinse with hot water and use the chain scrubber as a sponge. Dry and store.

    Nothing sticks to it. Forgot one time and cooked tomato pasta sauce (don't cook acidic) and didn't ruin my seasoning as I thought it would.

    I use it on an induction cooker. Good for steaks, chicken, meats in general. Makes for a good wok alternative if you don't have a burner and a wok.

  •  

    Bought this in October last year and this has been my go to pan for all cooking. Now I can do sunny side up without a lot of oil and still no sticking.

    Bought one with grills in last sales and love it! Grab 2 flat pans this time

    Bought one and I also bought Dredd on 4K and to get it over the $49 mark for free delivery I bought a $3.16 wooden spatula from amazon UK

    I watched a couple of video's on you tube and they recommended using a wooden one so you don't scratch the seasoning off of the skillet ans also stops you from scratching it

    •  

      I use those big chinese cooking knifes to scratch around in my pan every now and then, not a problem.

      The best thing about cast iron you can use metal utensils on it.

    •  

      You won't hurt cast iron, U could practically use a chisel on it.. The seasoning should actually burn into the surface somewhat.. not hard to re-season anyway, just chuck in the oven upside down coated in oil for a couple hours on 200c.. it should form a glazed coating..
