The Lodge Cast Iron 12-inch Skillet is multi-functional cookware that works wonders with slow-cooking recipes and all your favorite foods. Fry up a mess of catfish, roast a chicken, or bake an apple crisp in this generous 12-inch pan that features two handles for heavy lifting and two subtle side lips for pouring. Great for in the kitchen or at the campground - 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. Cast Iron gives you a nearly non-stick surface, without the possible harmful fumes generated by preheating chemically treated nonstick cookware.
