Hold on, yes Cabala's line is Chinese, but they also sell the Lodge Logic which I believe is better a U.S cast iron products.

I'd find an older Griswald, or Wagner. Even the unmarked 'antique' cast iron you can find will be a better performer than anything from Cabela.


Lodge cast iron is made in China, now?

I wondered about giving it a smoother finish with a 5" flapper disc on my mini grinder as the surface is a bit rough. I may give that a try. Either way, I'm stuck with it so I'll have to make it work.

I have re worked several cast iron skillets and dutch ovens with a grinder and sand paper.
When you get the surface smooth, then you can season it, and the performance will be greatly improved.
I did not mean to indicate that your piece is useless by any means.

Thanks, I will go that route before even trying it out. I don't have any experience with cast iron but somewhere in the back of my mind I knew it needed a smooth surface to work right.

Here is a very good reference on cast iron: Cast Iron Cuisine from Breakfast to Dessert. It has some great info on the acquisition and care of cast iron cookware. Also has some great original recipes.

Available on Amazon for cheap and it was written, printed, and published in the USA by Americans.

The book: Cast Iron Cuisine... is available at Amazon and other book sources. It is a worthy addition to any cookbook library.

Sorry I wasn't more clear.

Oh, sorry. You did give the title, didn't you? I thought that was your summary of what the book covered. I should have noticed the caps.

No, Lodge is made in the USA, except for the enameled cast iron. Basically if it's black it's made in the USA.

There are two grades of enameled cast iron from Lodge, both made in China. Most of the department store enameled cast iron is also made in China.


Deserve's got nothing to do with it.

Lodge is made in the USA, except the enameled cast iron. So, any of the "black" cast iron is made right here in the USA.

Their enameled cast iron is no different than any of the other enameled cast iron you see in cooking or department stores, except for Le Creuset which is made in France.


no different eh? ohhhhhhhhhhhh K.


Yes, most of the department store and "signature" series enameled cast iron is made in China, just like Lodge's enameled cast iron. Lodge offers two "grades" of enameled cast iron (has different layers of enamel). All of their non-enameled cast iron is made in the USA.

Wifey has a Lodge cast iron stew pot that was preseasoned and it's great. We also have a very large Lodge two-handed pan but I am going to have to finish the surface as it is very rough.
Have quite a few Griswald's that were my Mom's and grandfather's and they are great.

Have a cast iron tortilla warmer form Australia. Snagged it at the flea market. Of course not sure if that was the intended purpose of the piece, round, no sides, just a very small rise along the edges.

Thanks Acesandeights. I should have continued reading through the entire thread before responding. I see now where you had clarified this earlier.

Glad to know Lodge hasn't sold out, at least on their "black" ironware.

Well I too suspected there weren't many tortillas being heated down under.
