With an extra inch of depth added to the traditional 12-inch skillet, this versatile pan by Lodge can do it all from deep frying to bread baking, and includes an iron cover for even more possibilities. Since 1896, the Lodge family has been casting premium iron cookware at our Tennessee foundry. As the sole American manufacturer of cast iron cookware, we are proud to carry on the legacy started by our great-grandfather Joseph Lodge. We don't just make products; we make heirlooms that bring people together for generations. At home in the backyard, the backwoods, or the ballgame. Brutally tough for decades of cooking.
