1) Withstands High Heats: The main benefit of the Lodge Logic L10SK3 12-Inch Pre-Seasoned Skillet is that it withstands heat a lot better than traditional Teflon pans. Whether you are using it in the oven, on the stovetop or even on an open fire, it will not bend or break, no matter how hot it gets. This is particularly useful if you want to sear steaks or flame grill your food as you don’t have to worry about how the skillet will respond to heat. You can just get on with your cooking and let the skillet do its job.
2) Superior Heat Control: Since the Lodge Logic L10SK3 12-Inch Pre-Seasoned Skillet is constructed from cast iron, it offers much greater heat control than non-cast iron alternatives. The heat distribution is very even so no matter how much food you have in the pan, it will all be cooked at the same rate. Additionally, this skillet has brilliant heat retention so even if it’s full to the brim you won’t have to worry about your food getting cold.
3) Superior Taste: Another advantage the Lodge Logic L10SK3 12-Inch Pre-Seasoned Skillet has over its Teflon coated competitors is the superior taste you can get from your food when using a cast iron pan. The higher cooking heats that it facilitates really allow you to unlock the flavor in your food, particularly when it comes to cooking meat. If you’ve always wondered how to cook flavorful fajita chicken or sumptuous steaks, the Lodge Logic L10SK3 12-Inch Pre-Seasoned Skillet is the answer.
1) Short Handle: One area of the Lodge Logic L10SK3 12-Inch Pre-Seasoned Skillet that could be improved is the length of the main handle. Whilst it can be lifted with ease using two hands, trying to lift the short handle with just one hand can be difficult. If you are used to lighter frying pans which you can grab with one hand without a second thought, this short handle combined with the extra weight of a cast iron pan may put you off.
Overall, the Lodge Logic L10SK3 12-Inch Pre-Seasoned Skillet is a welcome addition to any kitchen. If you have never used cast iron skillet before then this is a good introductory purchase whilst if you already own cast iron skillets this is a great way to expand your collection. The short handle will take a bit of getting used to but in terms of actual cooking performance, this skillet won’t disappoint. It’s extremely durable, gives your food a unique taste and is one of the best cast iron skillets on the market when it comes to heat distribution and retention.
