The following is use and care for our Seasoned Carbon Steel cookware. By Following these instructions, you can keep your Seasoned Carbon Steel cookware in excellent condition.


If you do Nothing Else...

Hand wash. Dry immediately—even before first use.

Rub with a light coat of vegetable oil after every wash.

How much oil? Just enough to restore the sheen, without being sticky.

Why? To keep the steel “seasoned” and protected from moisture.


Let's Cook!

Lodge Seasoned Carbon Steel is right at home on induction, ceramic, electric and gas cooktops, in your oven, on the grill, or even over the campfire (Some induction tops will not work with 2-burner griddles). Do not use in the microwave.

Always heat and cool your pan gradually.

On glass or ceramic cooktops, lift cookware; never slide it.

Use metal, wood, or hi-temp silicone utensils.

Some foods may stick to new cookware (especially eggs). Use a little extra oil or butter until you’ve built up the “seasoning”.

Seasoning creates the natural, easy-release properties. The more you cook the better it gets.

When cooking at medium-high to high temperatures with small amount of oil, add oil to cookware and brush on food just before adding food.


The Basics

Match pan size to burner size.

Don’t use in the microwave.

Our handles get hot; use mitts. Use trivets to protect countertops from hot cookware.

Rust!? Don’t Panic – It’s really easy to fix. Scour the rust, rinse, dry, and rub with a little vegetable oil.

    Get one. Get several. I seasoned my 12" with several coats of pure flax oil and this pan is outstandingly slick. Pork schnitzels, scrambled eggs, lemon ricotta pancakes, chicken picatta. All perfect. The steel is very heat responsive. I have several enameled French pans and commercial nonsticks in my arsenal...but this pan...I can't say enough. Buon Apetito!

    Absolutely love this skillet. My son said the quality of okra has improved and that is important! I want this in all the different sizes available, especially the griddle.

    I ordered this pan a few months ago, but wanted to put it through several uses before reviewing. I now can say, I reach for this pan every morning when I cook our bacon/sausage/eggs. I have even baked biscuits and cornbread in it. For other meals, it gives the best sear to our steaks & chops. I can deglaze and continue with a sauce in the same pan or pop the meat into a high oven to finish cooking. It really is my go-to-pan since it came into my kitchen.

    I've been using a 12" cast iron skillet for years, but wanted to try the lighter Carbon Steel skillet. Man, I haven't used the CI at all since I got the carbon steel. skillet.. It works great and is super slick.
