Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron Cookware

Lodge seasoned cast iron cookware is available in a wide array of styles from traditional to exotic. There are 3 kinds of Lodge seasoned cast iron cookware; Logic, Pro Logic and Signature. The all have the same seasoned cast iron but differ in styling. The Signature cookware has stainless steel handles.  Lodge has a system for pre-seasoning cookware that they developed in 2002. Normally, cast iron sticks and is not considered to produce foods that cook as well, or taste as great until countless meals produce a black, rich patina on the bottom. Lodge duplicates that affect by spraying vegetable oil and cooking it in a high temperature gas oven.

The best way to care for this cookware is to remember that it’s iron. After cooking clean with a stiff nylon brush and hot water, soap is not recommended and detergents should not be used at all. Cloth towel dry immediately and apply a bit of oil while it’s still warm.

Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron comes from a family business that still operates out of the tiny Appalachian community of South Pittsburg , Tennessee where they were founded in 1896. Lodge Cast Iron produces the most extensive selection of high quality cast iron goods on the market. The company prides itself on its eco-friendly practices that include recycling and even planting trees.

Lodge Lodge Enameled Cast Iron Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron Lodge L5HS3 5-Piece Pre-Seasoned Cast-Iron Cookware Set The Lodge Cast Iron 5-piece set features the most needed cast iron cookware pieces for your kitchen. Cast iron is a multi-functional cookware that works wonders with slow-cooking recipes and all your favorite foods. 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. Whether used in a kitchen or camp, theses virtually indestructible cookware should last for generations. Made of cast iron, this cookware evenly distributes heat from the bottom through the sidewalls. Sporting a stylish black color, the cast iron Skillet looks good in most kitchens and it doubles up as an excellent source of nutritional iron. This pre-seasoned cookware is ready-to-use right out of the box. While the skillet comes pre-seasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated with vegetable oil before use. The Lodge seasoning procedure is a multiple-step process in which the seasoning oil is applied via an electrostatic spray system that coats the cookware, then it’s baked in commercial ovens at very high temperatures. This allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the pores of the iron. This seasoning process achieves a seasoned finish that would take many months of home use to achieve. Sometimes during this process, the seasoning oil can collect and create a bubble or slight drip at the bottom of the pan as it’s hanging through the production process. And that in turn can turn brown as it’s processed through the seasoning ovens.  This brown spot is not rust but in fact, carbonized seasoning and will darken with use.  The factory seasoning process makes Lodge cast iron products ready to use right out of the box, and the product over time “Just keeps getting better”. After cooking, clean with a stiff nylon brush and hot water. Using soap is not recommended, and harsh detergents should never be used. Towel dry immediately and apply a light coating of oil to utensil while it is still warm. Cast Iron, like your grandmother used, still ranks as one of the best cooking utensils ever made. It gives you a nearly non-stick surface, without the possible harmful fumes generated by preheating chemically treated nonstick cookware. The American-based company, Lodge, has been fine-tuning its construction of rugged, cast-iron cookware for more than a century. Set includes 10.5-inch round griddle, 8-inch skillet, 10.25-inch skillet, 5-Qt Dutch oven and 10.25-inch iron cover. Iron cover fits both the 10.25-inch skillet and the Dutch oven. $150.00 http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41AN3UBrfiL._SL160_.jpg
