Designed for the gourmet, the Lodge Chef Skillet is great for omelets, cornbread or sauteing. This unique 10-inch
skillet has sloped sides and features a teardrop handle. Cast iron loves a campfire, a stovetop, or an oven, and can
slow-cook foods without scorching. It retains heat well so you can sear meat at higher temperatures and will keep your
delicious meals warm for a long time. Made of cast iron, this skillet evenly distributes heat from the bottom through
the sidewalls. Sporting a stylish black color, the cast iron skillet looks good in most kitchens and it doubles up as an
excellent source of nutritional iron. Measures: 10-inch diameter, 1.75-inch deep. Cast Iron, like your grandmother used,
still ranks as one of the best cooking utensils ever made. It gives you a nearly non-stick surface, without the possible
harmful fumes generated by preheating chemically treated nonstick cookware. The American-based company, Lodge, has been
fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century. The black patina given to the
cookware by the factory seasoning process is, in fact, vegetable oil that has been baked into a piece of cookware that
has emerged from an individual sand mold. This coating of oil is a functional application and not a cosmetic
application. The cookware is hanging as it rides through the electrostatic sprayer and commercial conveyer ovens at
very high temperatures. This allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the pores of the iron which creates an easy
release finish. As a result of this process, you may see a blister or bubble of oil at the southern-most point or at the
end of the handle of the cookware piece. If visible, it will rub or flake off with your finger, leaving a brown spot.
Don’t worry, it’s not rust but a seasoned spot that is brown, indicative of the varnish stage of seasoning. As a matter
of fact, this is the color of home seasoned iron until it has been used several times. The brown spot will turn black
with use. While the skillet comes pre-seasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly
coated with vegetable oil before use. After cooking, we recommend cleaning with a stiff nylon brush and hot water. Using
soap or the dishwasher is not recommended, and harsh detergents should never be used. Towel dry immediately cleaning and
apply a light coating of oil to utensil while it is still warm.
