Lodge Seasoned Cast Iron Logic Skillet, $33.95 for 12"
Why We Love: This is the most durable pan we own and certainly the most versatile. It transitions easily from grill to stovetop to oven, and does everything from fry eggs to sauté veggies and sear meat. Unlike some other cast iron pans, this one comes pre-seasoned with vegetable oil, so is ready to go. Plus, nothing can maintain and distribute heat like cast iron, meaning food is cooked evenly and at lightening speed, with a delectable grilled flavor and a just-right crispy finish. Cool Fact: Founded by Joseph Lodge way back in 1896, Lodge Cast Iron is the oldest family-owned cookware foundry in America. The company uses a privately-held metal formula and precision molds that have been carefully developed and perfected for generations. Where to Buy:www.lodgemfg.com
