This is an amazing deal. It was offered on Woot (except it had the Woot ! mark on the bottom) for $29.99.

Compared to amazon this is no deal at all.

Still a little cheaper than Amazon.

This appears to be a great deal on a better quality pan than the price would suggest: http://www.consumersearch.com/skillets/lodge-logic-12-inch-skillet

Unfortunately for me, this is cast-iron which means no dishwasher. That wouldn't have been too much of a problem a few years ago; however, with one year old and four year old girls running around, I barely have time to cook dinner let alone hand wash dishes.

on the similar deals tab to the right there is a deal offering the same product for a dollar less. (18.99 + free shipping)

@kopitog: Out of Stock, also the price had gone up to $25.

@jds4life: You don't "hand wash" cast iron; you don't wash it at all, really. If you want to minimize clean-up time from cooking, cast iron is the way to go - assuming that you have a few minutes, one time, to read about how to care for it.

What's going on with all the downvoting? Somebody not like 1saleaday?

Wash your cast iron in hot water immediately after use. Be sure not to scrub too vigorously, and take care not to submerge the pan in water. This could cause damage to the seasoning on the pan. Dry your cookware completely. Cast iron will rust if it isn’t dried immediately after washing. Start by towel drying you cookware. Then, place it on the stove over low heat for a minute or two to pull out any remaining moisture. If desired, lightly coat the inside of the pan with oil, and heat for a minute or two longer. This will help to restore any seasoning that might have been lost during washing.

@rprebel: I think it's mostly a function of being $1 cheaper than Amazon w/Prime.

@jds4life: I have twin 6yr old, plus a 3yr old...

we have plenty of time to "do dishes" and have fun with the kids.

I don't have any cast iron cookware, but I do have a steel wok and we use it often with leftovers.

After use I wipe it clean, oil it, heat until just starting to smoke, then off the heat.
wipe with paper towel... done.

This process is basically same for cast-iron.

Almost nothing sticks to it... and I can use metal cookware as it's NOT a non-stick.

@poulsbokid: I miss cooking with mine. (stupid glass-top stoves)

Still available!Perhaps we get one for family!

@justafreak: You had me concerned after I read your comment about ceramic cooktops because I bought the Woot skillet when it was available, but I have yet to use it. I did a little looking and the consensus is that you can use cast iron on these cooktops without issue. The only thing that was mentioned was to be careful about sliding it around as to not scratch the cooktop. The weight of the skillet doesn't seem to be a concern as there are many out there that use cast iron without any problems.

I assume this is the same product so looks like 1sale price and shipping is more expensive than if you just buy it at Walmart.

12" cast pans are extremely unwieldy due to their heft. I would recommend a 10" pan unless you can find a deal for some HGH as well.

@nanaejt: So, be darn sure that the additional $1.01 price and shipping delay is worth it to the respective buyers to get from "not Wal-Mart!"

@tom12385: That is probably why it has a second handle; it is especially handy when you need to pour off some grease.

vote-for2vote-against

These are great; buy two and you can make a poor-man's dutch oven if needed (just put one upside down on top of the other). It works really well :D

I have the 10" and love it but once in a while I need a little more room. This has been on my wish list for a while.

But I'll wait for a real sale.

vote-for1vote-against

I have one, and it is awesome. Cast iron is the best way to cook just about anything on the stove, and it is the least expensive of all of my pans.

And if Disney has taught us anything...these make great weapons!! ;)

vote-for2vote-against

@tom12385: That is probably an important consideration that most people overlook. I've got a 12" skillet, and it's more than a little hefty; I can't toss things around in it like I can in my old non-sticks. I imagine it's even worse for someone who isn't often mistaken for a girthy lumberjack.

Not to mention Left 4 Dead! One of the melee weapons available. Great sound to it.

@neuropsychosocial: Oh, but you DO wash it, you just don't use soap. If someone wants quick clean, etc, this is not it. If someone wants the most evenly heated cooking surface known to man, this is it. We bought one a few weeks back and have enjoyed the best bacon ever.

You will need to wash and dry with care and add a coating of oil after each use. To me it is worth it, to some who are in a hurry, it will not be.
