about the Dec. 2014 review.....
You are so dumb when it comes to Cast Iron Cooking!!
So there is a chip in the seasoning, so what! That doesn't by no means mess up the product you are using. Get a grip! Lodge shouldn't have replaced it for you. Reseason it and the defect will go away. I've been using Lodge Cast Iron for 35 years and have enjoyed it the whole time. Do you know how many products Lodge makes in a year? And you expect every piece to be perfect! I've had places on new cast iron from Lodge where I had to reseason it, but that is no big deal. You have to do that anyway from time to time and you're so ignorant of the fact to even try to reseason something.! Lodge makes great products, I know because I have about 40 pieces from them! And just ordered the 10in. deep camp Dutch Oven and the tripod and got it today. And guess what, no defects bad enough to cry about! I'm getting ready to order the 12in., deep camp Dutch Oven and so when our lights go out this Winter, I'll be eating! So do yourself a favor and quit crying over spilled milk!!!!
Take care and happy cooking, or whatever you call it!
