Lodge Skillet SignI’ve heard about people being hit upside the head with a skillet, but I never understood the impact until visiting the Lodge Cast Iron Factory in South Pittsburg, Tennessee. Those things have some heft.

Add heat, compactors, and conveyor belts and you’ve got cookware that will last a lifetime AND give you a workout every time you scramble an egg.
