6 Favorites: Traditional Cast Iron Skillets

Christine Chang Hanway July 03, 2015

There’s little you can’t make (or bake) with a 10-inch cast iron skillet, and if you look after it properly (season it regularly), cast iron cookware will last you a lifetime and beyond. Here are six favorites.

Above: A chef’s dream: a row of variously sized cast iron skillets. Photograph via Brook Farm General Store.

Above: Vintage Griswold and Wagner cast iron skillets, the Rolls Royce of the cast iron world, can be found on eBay from $80 to $250.

Above: The 10.25-inch Lodge Logic Skillet is available through Amazon; $24.35.

Above: The 10-inch Camp Chef Cast Iron Skillet is available through Amazon; $17.99.

Above: The one drawback of the cast iron skillet is that its handle gets very hot. The Lodge Signature 10-Inch Cast Iron Skillet with Stainless Steel Handles offers a cooler handle option; available through Mills Fleet Farm for $50.

Above: Made of recycled iron, Borough Furnace’s 9-Inch Frying Skillets are hard cast to order in Syracuse, New York; $280. See more in Ironman.

Above: At Felion Studios, you can have a cast iron skillet made in the shape of your home state. See Felion for details. 

For more options, take a look at Object Lessons: Lodge Cast Iron and Jasper Morrison’s Japanese-Made Cast Iron.
