Amazon Is Having a *Huge* Sale on Lodge Cast-Iron Cookware Right Now—Here's What to Buy
Cast-iron cooking is great all year round, but come fall and winter, it's especially useful for making cozy weeknight meals. Just in time, Amazon is having an unbelievable sale on Lodge cast-iron products. We're talking anywhere from 20% off to over 50% off full-priced items! Maybe you've got old cast-iron equipment that may have experienced a mishap—like someone unknowingly putting it in the dishwasher or soaking it in water (as I did back in college before I knew better)—so it needs to be replaced. Maybe you just want to add a new item to your kitchen arsenal or stock up for holiday gift-giving. Now is definitely the time to take advantage of these low prices.
There's no sacrificing quality with this bargain: American-made Lodge is considered the top of the line for cast-iron cookware. Lodge cookware comes pre-seasoned, so you'll be ready to put it to work as soon as it's delivered. Cast-iron cookware is naturally nonstick—a better option than cheap nonstick pans that often lose their nonstick properties after several uses and are made with chemicals that have been linked to certain cancers. Additionally, cast-iron cookware heats up evenly, retains heat well, is extremely durable and actually adds to the flavor of your dishes. Treat your cast iron right, and it can last you for generations.
Here are our five favorite Lodge products currently on sale—plus, some of our favorite ways to use them.
