Makes cooking a pleasure
Phyllis from Brookline, MA – Verified Buyer
Cooking in old fashioned cast iron is becoming a new fashioned trend. Food cooks evenly and seem to taste better than foods cooked in a pan with a chemical finish, plus, of course, it's nice to do without the chemicals in the first place. Cast iron is heavy, but this pan has two handles, so that the average person can lift it off the stove with both hands. The pan is also deeper than average, and that means less spattering and the ability to cook greater amounts of food. (Great for winter casseroles.) Pros: Great value, 2 handles, extra deep Cons: As the directions say, the pan needs extra seasoning (basically baking oil onto the surface). They explain how to do this, but you can also get instructions from the Internet. Also, you need to clean it properly; rising with hot water without soap.

I purchased the 10 in fry pan. Itis big enough to prepare a large dish or cornbread. My food did not stick. Clean-up was quick and easy. My food did not stick or taste funny. I highly recommend product. I purchased 2.

This pan weighs a ton so don't expect to flip pancakes in it. But it's solid, heats evenly, has high sides to reduce splatter and while somewhat abrasive the surface is smooth enough for easy cleaning.
Great fry pan!!

Perfect Size & Weight
Chelsea from San Antonio, TX – Verified Buyer
This pan is definitely solid, but not too heavy or too light! Wayfair did an excellent job shipping it to me as well. I got it in the mail 3-4 days after I bought it and it was well packaged. Can't wait to use it!
Love this skillet
Lydia from SACRAMENTO, CA – Verified Buyer
I love the weight and extra handle to pick it up with. Everything cooks great in it, especially my pineapple upside down cake. Yummy!
Kenyatta from New York, NY – Verified Buyer
No one should be with at least one of these pans. I got two and make everything in it, fish, cornbread, fried chicken, pan cakes. This is a big big must have, please trust me.
Love Cast Iron
Jennifer from Tracy, CA – Verified Buyer
I grew up with cast iron cookware and love it's versatility. While this pan is quite heavy, the heat distribution is amazing, I'm glad to have found this cookware. Cons: A bit heavy, requires both hands but worth the effort.
You can't go wrong
David from Cos Cob, CT – Verified Buyer
This is a basic cast iron fry pan that does everything a cast iron fry pan is supposed to do. The two pour spouts and the extra loop handle opposite the main handle are a bonus. Pros: pour spouts, second handle Cons: none
Excellent Fry Pan
Kenneth from Pittsburgh, PA – Verified Buyer
Always wanted a cast iron fry pan but thought they were too expensive. Great pan for the money! Have used many times already. Instructions advise to season with pi; to maintain season on pan which I have been doing and it does remain non stick!
