Good for you! This is fantastic! Our pediatric pulmonoligist told us iron can actually help sleep apnea in some cases so we should try making more food for Emelia in these!

Woo!! Well if WE won incredible Lodge Cookware, I would use it now -- but be more excited to use it LATER. We always wanted a brick oven/outside cooking area. My fav is a great stir fry. The iron would be a plus, but the longevity is what catches my eye!

Girl, way to climb that blogosphere ladder! We just replaced all our toxic non-stick pans with stainless steel and failed to get Cast Iron skillet. It would be totally awesome to win one!

Mysharona said...

Love to get a new skillet to fry up some heart-busting foods.

I want it because all my pans are old and gross and TEFLON based. I love to cook, but this would make me cook even more! And I never win anything so it would better than Christmas and my birthday put together!

Carmen Nuland said...

daniellehall30 said...

its so hard to find skillets that are great and made to last

Cally Graham said...

Welcome, Carmen! So happy to have you! I hope you stick around and share with us when you feel the groove. Best of luck with winning the cast iron AWESOMENESS! We're so crazy about our skillets and dutch oven.

Cally Graham said...

I'm tellin' ya...one of these babies could be sitting at the bottom of the ocean for 50-years, retrieved, scraped off, seasoned and would probably last your family a dozen lifetimes. They're THAT good. Good luck!

Cally Graham said...

Lodge says this skillet is one of their most coveted! Hope you nab it!

Cally Graham said...

Good luck, Peg! If you win, are you cookin' for me? ;)

Cally Graham said...

Fingers crossed! Good luck!

Jackie said...

I'm getting married and I need to cook for my MAN...LOL

Paula Michele Hafner said...

I would like to win because I've heard that cooking on an iron skillet adds extra iron to your diet. I've had some anemia problems so this would be great.

I want to win because I know how great cooking in iron cookware is. Treat them right and they last FOREVER. It also adds iron to your diet just by eating food cooked in them. An iron skillet like this makes fabulous corn bread in the oven.

I love cooking in cast iron. Lodge is my favorite, because I know where they are made, and they are good quality.

Cally Graham said...

Congratulations and best wishes! Hope we can send you an early wedding present! :)

Cally Graham said...

Isn't the iron supplementing the best bonus? My mother-in-law tells me that some countries are switching all their cookware over to cast iron to get more iron in diets. I never thought about the fact that cooking in cast iron would actually add the element into the food. Duh! Such an awesome perk! Good luck, and welcome to the Hearth!

Cally Graham said...

Grandma had it right, Stephanie! If you win this one, you'll be handing it down to your grandchildren some day! These babies will last forever! Best wishes, and thanks for hanging with us at the Hearth!

Cally Graham said...

Mmmm...breakfast foods are my favorite in my cast iron skillets. Delish! Good luck! Thanks for stopping by the Hearth!

Cally Graham said...

What a mental picture I have. Just as long as you don't use it to store superfluous CORKS in your attic. If you win, I expect you'll be serving up breakfast and beers! ;)

Cally Graham said...

That's such a great reason. Really! I just can't get over all the benefits to using these pans. I'm so happy that you all are feeling that groove as well! Good luck!

Cally Graham said...

Oooh! Cool! Do you use a skillet for bread? We got started on this cast iron kick when I bought a dutch oven for my husband to make bread. I never thought about using the skillet instead. Isn't cast iron the BEST?!?

Cally Graham said...

I hope you get the chance. If you win, Lodge will send you the heaviest, best delivery ever to get started! Good luck!

Cally Graham said...

Couldn't agree more, Debbie! The fact that Lodge is willing to offer up their best seller, just to encourage others to try out cast iron greatness, makes me so happy. Great company!

Sue Ellison said...

I would love to win because as a child my Mom had a huge cast iron skillet that she fried chicken in. I have never been able to get mine to come out like hers and the only thing different is, I don't have a cast iron skillet to fry it in. Thanks for the chance!
