Ina Garten’s favorite Lodge cast iron skillet is on sale for only $20 at Amazon

We have an important announcement: Ina Garten’s favorite cast iron pan is on sale. And when Ina speaks, we listen. She is the queen (OK, the Contessa) of making life in the kitchen easy, breezy and joyful as she decodes French cooking for a new generation. Want to feel like culinary royalty this spring? Adding her beloved Lodge cast iron skillet to your arsenal is a great place to start. After all, Lodge has been making quality kitchen goods since 1896, so they know what they’re doing. Not only is cast iron durable, but it’s also excellent at heat retention to ensure consistent cooking.


This pre-seasoned skillet — an Amazon top-seller — is perfect for frying, braising, sauteing and so much more.

Paying a premium for good cookware — heck, even mediocre cookware — seems to be the norm these days, so when we spot a well-constructed, super-sturdy piece like this skillet for just $20 (that’s over 40% off), we think even Ina would say that “store-bought is just fine!” Plus, it was built to last forever, so you won’t need to shell out for a replacement in two years.

This tough-as-nails Lodge skillet can be used anywhere — on the stove, over the grill, in the oven or even over a campfire. It’s the ultimate multi-use tool, whether you’re perfectly searing a steak, dry-frying mushrooms or making the best darn scrambled eggs ever. It comes pre-seasoned, so you don’t have to fiddle around oiling it up, and it’s ready to use right out of the box.

It’s not just for savory cooking, either. Our resident Yahoo Life kitchen deals writer — who used to bake professionally — uses hers to make sweets like cinnamon rolls and chocolate chip pancakes. (Check out her full Lodge cast iron skillet review for more.)

Over 95,000 Amazon shoppers are so impressed by their Lodge skillets, they awarded them perfect five-star ratings.

“Lodge is hands down the best brand when it comes to cast irons,” declared a happy home cook. “I have used mine almost every single day since I got it, and it has held up really well.”

“It’s already seasoned and I love that!” exclaimed another Lodge loyalist. “It is my favorite pan now. It’s pretty, so I leave it sitting on my stove all the time. Nothing is sticking to it and it’s super easy to clean, has great heat distribution and is excellent quality. This will be passed down for generations.”

“Lodge’s cast iron pans are literally the best pans I have ever used in my life,” gushed a final fan. “My absolute go-to every time I need to cook something. Perfect sear on steaks. … Great for pancakes. Holds up to high heat in the oven.”

Of course, its durability means it isn’t exactly lightweight. “For people with weaker or injured wrists like me, this cast iron is the real deal and so it’s extremely heavy compared to other types of pans,” explained one user. “I had to be careful carrying it to make sure I do not injure my wrist again.” That said, they called it “A solid product and very forgiving cast iron pan for a beginner user like me.”

“Be aware that the handle does get very hot!” cautioned a final fan, who added, “Make sure to wash it and dry it all at the same time, otherwise it can rust.”


This is an indispensable part of any kitchen arsenal.

In the event that you notice some stubborn residue, here’s a simple solution.


This is what Jennifer Garner — and thousands of Amazon shoppers — use to clean caked-on cast iron messes. It’s made up of small stainless steel rings that won’t get rusty, and can be used on stainless steel and aluminum cookware as well. 

“I’m a chef and take good care of my cast iron pans,” shared a user. “When I first saw this product, I was intrigued. I purchased one, and it is a staple in my home. I’ve bragged about how well it works to many people. The rounded chainmail removes all the debris without gouging the seasoning on the pan or scratching the surface. If it gets gunked up with debris, I just run it through the dishwasher.”
