This pan is designed by Lodge, weighs 4 pounds, and has a 12-inch size so you can cook food enough for a small family in this. Its ergonomic handle makes it easy to use as it balances out the weight of the pan.
Construction: This pan is made of 12 gauge carbon steel due to which it has high heat retention and helps to cook the food evenly. Because of the high density of the metal, the pan heats up quickly but retains the heat required for cooking evenly. The size of the pan is 12 inches and it weighs around 4 pounds. Because of its lightweight, you can carry and use it easily. It has a steel riveted handle that allows you to hold it with ease while stirring during the cooking process.
It is pre-seasoned with oil and has an easy-release finish that improves with use. It prevents the pan from rusting and also gives the cooking surface non-stick properties. Because of the natural seasoning oil being baked into the pores of the pan, the cooking surface can be possibly restored if needed.
Function: It can be used on gas stovetops, outdoor grills, electric and induction stovetops, and open fire. So, it can be used fearlessly at any temperature. It is the best choice for professional, home, and camp use. This pan is seasoned with natural soybean oil and the easy-release finish only improves with use. The pan can work effectively because the high gauge carbon steel allows it to maintain very high and very low temperatures. The Lodge carbon steel skillet can work extraordinarily well for outdoor cooking.
There may appear some inconsistencies because of the seasoning but they will not affect the quality of food. You shouldn’t worry even if they get too visible because you can flake them off with a finger. A brown spot will appear as a result that will turn black with continuous use.
Cleaning and maintenance: The cleaning process of the pan is very simple, just like its simple construction. Just handwash the pan with hot water then rinse off. After that, dry the pan with a paper towel or a lint-free cloth and rub in a light layer of vegetable oil in order to make it ready for next use. Then hang the pan in a moisture-free place by the handle. It is easy to maintain because its surface is safe to use with metal objects like forks, knives, and spatulas.
