Lodge Find!

 I was so excited to find one of these at the local Thrift Shop for 15.99.

I have a growing collection of Lodge and this is a pot I have been looking for!

I love a great deal. I also love cooking with cast iron. It can be used in the kitchen, on your grill or taken on a camping trip and cooked over an open fire!
This one was in great condition and didn't need to be reconditioned like some of the cookware I have found.
Cast iron cookware can last 100 years if it is seasoned and taken care of.


If you do find a piece of cast iron cookware and it needs reconditioned it is simple and easy to do.

It may just be my imagination, but food cooked on cast iron always seems to taste better.

 In case you were wondering, I do not work for the Lodge Company!  I was just sharing my enthusiasm, not trying to sound like a commerical ;)

Anyone else a fan of cast iron??

  1. Okay, Sandra, you got a deal... and I have to tell you something.. I got my lodge skillet out two months ago... and I am now using it for EVERYTHING. I just wipe it clean and pour a little olive oil on it and rub it in. It sits on the stove all the time now!

  3. What a great find Sandra!! I too have several cast iron pieces. One of my small skillets belonged to my paternal grandmother and is now on it's third generation of cast iron skillet users. You are right that they are the best things to cook in and take anywhere. Keep on posting about your cast iron adventures as there are those of us that do use them out here.

  5. We have all sorts of cast iron, in fact when we built our house everyone thought we should have wonderful granite counter tops but we chose tile instead. Much easier with cast iron, we can put the pots right on top and they don't ever scratch. Our dutch oven is from the 20s and in great shape.

  7. I absolutely love Lodge cast iron--I have a large skillet and a dutch oven (for outdoors). I think food tastes better on it too!

    I didn't see this post on our blog hop list, Sandra, so I'd like to invite you to share this post and up to two others at our From the Farm Blog Hop, which is live right now. Your blog posts would fit right in with the wonderful posts that are shared!
