Lodge cast iron cookware is built to endure: these cast iron skillets, Dutch ovens, griddles, and bakeware with original, preseasoned, and enameled surfaces are sturdy, heirloom-worthy pieces. Founded in 1896 in the Appalachian Mountains by Joseph Lodge and his wife, Lodge Cookware has created a legacy of quality that has seen the company through fire, the Great Depression, and two World Wars – all while keeping the business in the family (the current CEO and President are both Joseph Lodge’s great-grandsons). Blending history with innovation in equal measure, Lodge has most recently released a line of brightly colored enamel cookware, the legendary Lodge Logicline pre-seasoned cookware (an industry game-changer) and the Seasoned Steel line, a series of brutally tough carbon steel skillets.

Their strength is stovetop-to-table versatility, like cast iron that can be used reliably on any heat source, and can just as easily keep foods cold; and stoneware, which is safe for use in the microwave, freezer, refrigerator, dishwasher, oven, and broiler (and a design standout, thanks to its vibrant, scratch-resistant enamel coating). We've got a range of styles on offer here, perfect for casual cooks and seasoned chefs alike.
