1. A pre-seasoned, cast iron Lodge round griddle (10.5") for anyone who wants to pass down their legendary pancake pan to their great grand children.

But not before making hundreds and hundreds of pancakes, of course. Promising review: "Big fan of cast iron, and this is one of the best. Used and treated correctly, it rivals the best non-stick cookware out there. This one came seasoned well, and ready to use. Another good product from Lodge." —GentleHarleyManPrice: $14.88

2. A 10.25" seasoned cast iron buffalo nickel skillet that'll add to your collection of Lodge cookware, and cook up a mean steak non-stick style.

Promising review: "I am a huge lover of cast-iron cookware. I have over 50 skillets in my collection, a majority of them being Lodge. You always know your getting a piece of history and quality with Lodge cookware! This is a collectors skillet that I've been dying for since before Christmas. They only have a limited run of these, so I had to get my hands on one. It cooks like any other Lodge skillet, superb! If you haven't made the switch from Teflon to cast iron, do it now. Cast iron is just as easy to clean, and stays just as seasoned as Teflon. You will never get a better sear. I will never have to replace my cookware unless it breaks, saves me so much money." —MobchkPrice: $16.86

3. A Lodge reversible grill (16.75”x9.5”) ready to go from the campfire to the electric stove, so you can enjoy the flavors of the grill wherever you are.

Promising review: "This is my first grill/griddle and I am loving it. I've cooked steaks and burgers on it. My food turns out beautifully. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to buy a grill/griddle. It is definitely worth the money. I did a lot of research before making my purchase because I have an electric stove, and wanted to be sure I purchased the right grill/griddle to use. I am glad I chose to purchase this brand. It works very well on my electric stove." —MsLovely1983 Price: $29.90

4. And a pre-seasoned, lightweight reversible grill pan perfect for anyone who wants to enjoy the flavors of cast iron cooking without the hefty price tag.

click.linksynergy.com, Walmart

Promising review: "Bought it for camping since my other griddle weighs a ton. It's almost a perfect fit on a Weber Go-Anywhere grill. It comes pre-seasoned, and you can't complain about the price. I broke it in cooking bacon, sausages, hash browns, and eggs. I cooked for two adults and three children." —ChrisM

5. A five-piece foundry seasoned set of Lodge cast iron cookware worthy of investing in. These babes are non-stick with proper care, and will outlive all your other cookware.

Set includes: 10.5" round griddle, 8" skillet, 10.25" skillet, 5-quart Dutch oven, and 10.25" coverPromising review: "I purchased this set as I was weary of replacing non-stick skillets every few years when the non-stick surfaces would wear off. With proper care, seasoning after each use, these pieces will develop a non-stick surface and likely outlive me! The set offers a variety of uses in my kitchen. The Dutch oven is a practical size — not too big, or too small — for batches of soup, stew, chili, or a pot roast. The round griddle is perfect for quesadillas, a medium tortilla fits perfectly. Of course, everything can transfer from stove top to oven. I can even use each piece to cook on the surface of my wood stove on cold winter days." —Thyme2Cook Check out Everything You Need To Know About Cooking With Cast Iron Pans for tips on how to properly care for cast iron.

6. And a three-piece set of budget-friendly cast iron skillets that may cook just as well as the name brand 👀.

Set includes: 8" skillet, 10.5" skillet and 12" skillet. Promising review: "Wow what a great deal. I cannot believe I purchased all three of these skillets for the cost of one of the name-brand skillets. I was kind of hesitant when I first saw this deal; however, after looking at the cast iron skillets in the store I could tell these were made of quality. These will last the next hundred years beyond a doubt. They are heavy duty cast iron in the 8-, 10-, and 12-inch skillet. I have used the ten inch skillet about five times in the past week, and the skillet makes the food taste excellent. Just make sure you pick up some vegetable oil and bake the pans for forty five minutes at 350 degrees to give the pan the non stick coating!" —FordMechanic83Price: $17.50

7. A 10.5" pre-seasoned square grill pan you'll use all the time — it's easy to clean, sears your food with tasty grill marks, and is trusted by professional chefs.

Promising review: "I have been a fan of Lodge products for a long time. This grill pan did not disappoint. I have been dabbling with hot sandwiches while I do research before I open my own business, and this grill pan fit the bill for me. Not only have I used it to make paninis, I have grilled several other foods for that 'grill mark' look and they have come out with the desired effect. I never considered buying a grill pan in the past, because I thought it would be horrible to clean between the grills. I was really surprised how easily it cleaned. The pre-seasoning by Lodge is fantastic! I make sure I don't overheat the pan, and I wash with hot water only after the grill has had a chance to cool off a little. With good heat control and prompt cleaning with water only, you too will enjoy the same visual effect the Lodge Grill Pan leaves on meat and other grilled foods you cook in this pan for a very long time." —BlackIronChefPrice: $18.92

8. A 14" Lodge cast iron wok guaranteed to retain heat, and make you toss the other "I'm gonna cook this food for five seconds then just steam it" wok pan you've been using.

Promising review: "I've owned several woks and this is the first one that I have been happy with. I use it on my glass top stove without any problems. It takes about 10-15 minutes to preheat on high on the largest burner. It actually sears the meat and vegetables, since it gets very hot and retains its heat. All my other woks lost their heat quickly and ended up steaming or boiling the food. The bottom is flat on the outside, and curved inside. Very heavy, so it didn't slide around on my glass top. You need pot holders to touch the handles. Overall, this is the best wok you can buy for the home cook, in my opinion." —RobertInNCPrice: $49.90

9. A 13 inch pre-seasoned cast iron family pan so you can whip up large batches of food, and take this babe from the stovetop to the oven to the table like a rustic cowboy.

Promising review: "This is a good skillet for cooking large batches of food at one time. Making fried chicken and browning pounds of hamburger for chili is a breeze. Also, I like that this skillet has two handles, which really helps when you want to carry it. The skillet is pre-seasoned, so after you take it out of the box and wash it off it is ready to go. I was pleased to find a little booklet came in the box that had good care and use instructions, along with some recipes." —MrKite68Price: $29.72

10. A true-seasoned cast iron pie pan someone needs to buy me right now. Think of that perfectly crisp crust only cast-iron can give 😭.

Promising review: "Perfect size and not too heavy. I've already made a pecan pie and last night I made a beef pot pie in it. Came out perfect. Had enough left to give a plate away, and leftovers for another meal." —MerlynPrice: $11.99

11. A colorful, six-quart, enameled cast iron Dutch Oven ideal for stewing a pot roast Ron Swanson would be proud of (with the flair of Leslie Knope).

Promising review: "Beautiful enameled cast iron Dutch oven. Excellent quality for the money. Cooking a big pot of pinto beans right now — low and slow. The other day I cooked a pot roast and the meat was very tender and juicy. Looking forward to cooking a pot of chili when the weather gets colder. You will not be disappointed if you buy this Lodge product." —NanaPrice: $74.57 (available in six colors)

12. A true-seasoned cast iron bread pan who is unafraid of serving rustic, stone-ground bread looks the whole family shall fawn over.

She's so powerful. Promising review: "Use it twice a week every week since I bought it. Have other loaf pans, but none are as good as this one. Best crust, wonderful finished product." —buffalogal47Price: $12.35

13. A 12" seasoned Lodge skillet featuring an assist handle and the power to fry up a chicken just as good as Mom used to make.

Promising review: "I used it last night to fry some chicken. I was shocked and awed. It took me back to me childhood when no one could make fried chicken like my mother — didn't know it was the skillet! It was the most beautiful chicken I ever had. I decided to research information on cast-iron skillets. They are a healthy way of cooking. The maintenance doesn't compare to other cooking utensils, which I have to pour Comet in and soak overnight to dissolve the grease. I used some scalding hot water and a scrub brush on this pan. Sprayed and massaged with some pam on the inside perimeter, and put on the stove on low for 15 minutes. It looks so beautiful. I just seasoned another grill-bottom cast-iron skillet that I will be using from now on. I am fully on the cast iron bandwagon." —BlackQTeePrice: $19.92

15. A seasoned 20-quart Dutch oven for anyone who does not play when it comes to the Dutch oven, and has been searching for the perfect size like Goldilocks on her bear-house adventure.

Promising review: "This hard-to-find 20-quart is the perfect size for our outdoor gumbos and jambalayas. The 16-quart is more readily available, but a little too small. We also have the 25-quart, and it's difficult to handle. The 20-quart is must-have!" —LuvNolaPrice: $70.63

Promising review: "I am so glad that I ordered the meat/bacon press! When I use the press, it flattens the chops and UMMM, they are so good! Every household needs one of these, they are so handy." —msdosty1941Price: $14.87

17. A pre-seasoned square Dutch oven hybrid pan (13") capable of baking fish, frying pancakes and eggs, and more over an open fire (or in the oven!).

Promising review: "I have been looking for a square skillet/fry pan/Dutch oven combo, and this is the closest I have been able to find. It was a gift. The square shape increases usable surface area for cooking on a two-burner camp stove. I've used it for a canoe camp with my family, a Boy Scout canoe trip, and our yearly group fishing/canoe trip. I've baked fish and bread rolls, and fried pancakes, eggs, etc. in the base. It works well for frying and grilling, and ok for baking on a stove. Plan to add the dome cover in the future." —HungryPrice: $54.99

18. And a nine-inch cast iron Lodge cornbread pan I bet would also make out-of-this world brownies🚀.

For those who love a corner piece, now you can have a whole pan of them! Promising review: "I have had one of these for about 50 years, and I use it all the time. I ordered this for a cousin who had lost or misplaced hers, and couldn't find another one. If you like 'crusty' cornbread, this is the only way to make it. Every piece has crust all the way around. I wouldn't use anything except cast iron." —slowalker0Price: $16.06
