This thread inspired me to get out my cast iron skillets and I've been using them daily. I think I'm using a 10-inch and an 8-inch. One is a Lodge and the other doesn't have a name on it. I also have a smaller one and a pot with a lid that I haven't used yet. They all came from my aunt's house.

Thanks for the reminder and all the good cleaning and seasoning tips.

There is something about cast iron. I have much more expensive cookware, but my Lodge skillet has a permanent place on my stove and gets the most use.

I discovered new American made thin walled, smooth iron skillets!

Have a look at the company website. These babies arenít cheap, but they sure look like great pans.

I love cast iron but it's getting too heavy for my wrists to manipulate. I checked out the Fields pans because they look super, but one of the pictures shows a ridge around the bottom outside of the pan, which would mean it didn't heat evenly on electric glass stoves. I've written them to find out about it, but if anyone knows about this, I'd love to hear.

I got my answer back from Fields pans but am not completely sure about it. They didn't actually say it was completely level on the bottom. Here's what they said:

The Field Skillet does include a heat ring at the base of the pan, but this ridge provides only 0.04" clearance from the bottom of the pan and should not interfere with heat transfer on your burner. For best results, we recommend using a burner that matches the width of your skillet at low-medium heat and allowing the pan to pre-heat for 5 minutes before use.

I would think that a pan of this quality would be level except for .04Ē heat ring. They say the ring should not interfere with heat transfer. I might be concerned about using this on my induction burner. Otherwise, I donít see a problem on gas or electric.

They are expensive, for sure.

But I have to say if you have ever wrestled an old Lodge 12Ē around, that Field looks pretty good. The old Lodges are heavy and not as well balanced as vintage Griswolds or Wagners. And I have a terrible time keeping the Lodge seasoned.

You can pick up a cheap Chinese iron pan pretty cheaply almost anywhere though. They wonít be as smooth though.

I'm a skeptic by nature, so take my comment on that basis.


Do you really think they are going to admit that their skillet doesn't work well on an electric stove top? That would reduce their customer base by around one-half.
