For over 100 years Lodge Cast Iron has been a premier name in cast-iron cookware. The Lodge line of pre-seasoned cookware uses no chemicals to create the no-stick coating – just natural, soy-based vegetable oil! The thick, durable cast iron cookware makes for incredible heat distribution and retention, creating an even cooking surface that will last for decades (even lasting generations if cared for properly)!

Use & Care
Lodge Cast Iron cookware comes pre-seasoned with a soy-based vegetable oil and is ready to use right out of the box!
Cleaning cast iron cookware
Cleaning cast iron cookware couldn't be easier - just wash in hot water after use! If you aren't comfortable with just using hot water you can use a little bit of soap as well.
Do not use abrasive scouring pads or strong detergents as that may damage the seasoning on your pan (though you can always re-season your cast iron).
For stubborn stains simply soak for a few hours in a solution of 1 teaspoon bleach per 500ml of water.
For baked on food, boil a mixture of 1 cup of water and 2 tbsp of baking soda in your cookware.
Still not convinced it's that easy to care for your cast iron? Here's a video to show you how easy it is!
Maintaining cast iron seasoning
Maintaining the seasoning on your cast iron cookware is easy! Just apply a thin layer of vegetable oil to the surface of your cookware after each cleaning. That's it!
Re-seasoning cast iron
Occasionally you may find that it is necessary to re-season your cast iron cookware, either because you find food may be sticking to the surface or you notice a spot of rust on your pan.
If you notice a spot of rust, just scour the area with steel wool, rinse the pan, let it dry and then rub the area with a little vegetable oil. Voila, good as new!
If you find that food is sticking to your cast iron cookware it is easy to re-season:
Wash your cookware and scrub with a stiff brush. Let the cookware completely dry.
Apply a very thin coating of melted vegetable shortening or cooking oil to the inside and outside of the cookware.
Cover the bottom rack of your oven with aluminum foil (to catch any drips of oil)
Turn your oven to 350 deg F
Place cookware upside down on the top oven rack
Bake for at least one hour. Turn off oven and let the cookware cool.
