Premier quality cast iron, cookware preferred by gourmet chefs for heat retention, even cooking properties, and durability. The most important properties of cast iron are its heat retention and even heat distribution. It is also extremely durable. Properly cared for, cast iron will last for generations. Considered by professional chefs to be precision cooking tools, cast iron enables precise control of cooking temperatures. Its heat retention qualities allow for evenm cooling temperatures without hot spots. Original Finish cast iron should be seasoned before using. After washing the pan with warm soapy water, dry with a towel and apply a thin coat of melted shortening (Lodge recommends Crisco) and bake on the top rack of a 350 degree oven upside down for about one hour. (Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack to catch any drippings.) Let cool to room temperature in the oven. Over time the pan will darken to a black patina, a lasting non-stick finish. Never scour or wash in dishwasher. Each item contains complete use and care instructions.

Lodge Enamel brings together the Lodge 108 year history of making cast iron cookware with the fine art of enameling.

A minimum of four layers of strong, chip-resistant, enamel imported from France, is hand applied and baked onto its cast iron base. Where the lid and Dutch oven meet, the visible black edge is a special enamel undercoat that is even more chip resistant. The enamel cooking surface is FDA approved.
