I guessed closest...and I got a ton of upvotes (before Saturday). @w00tgurl...you're psychic. Or psychotic. I get those two confused.

If my check is in the bank by then, HELL YEAH!

I suppose I can use the excuse that I need a skillet to leave in the camper. And @xavoc, I have 6 cast iron skillets and until this past October only used them in/on an electric range. They are great for roasts.

Very cool video. I'd be in for one if I didn't already have a Lodge skillet this size. Heavy beast, but gotta love the crust that it gives food. I haven't used mine in a while, might be time to cook.

@xavoc: feel free to use a cast skillet on an electric cook top if you prefer cast skillet cooking. Its more of a liability thing with mfr's(more likely to scratch the cook top with cast, or break it while flipping an egg lol - also depending on the type of glass used (or enamel used, if you have the exposed element style electric) it can become discolored or in the case of glass, cloudy.)

Be aware that if you are still under a warranty period, this might void it (read your warranty) - but not due to any inherent failure (unless you're careless) mainly limiting liability, and carrying over cations from years long gone by. (early glass tops would shatter from hotspots, and a thick heavy skillet doesn't give up it's heat easily, even after shutting the burner. This is a complete non issue for modern glass tops. Exposed elements - unless yours is fairly new or underused...odds are they're chalky white anyways from overheating and years of use, so it still wouldn't matter.

I do need a cast iron skillet. If it's the right price in for 1.

@xavoc: I thought cast iron worked well with induction?

vote-for3vote-against

I'm really tempted on the skillet... but I kind of wanted the "Yoshi Blue Skillet" more.

But for the fact that I could use this woot skillet to fight off bad guys and horses, sure why not?

(I hope you have seen Tangled).

Well, now that a Woot Off just started, I'm going to say "No", I'm not going to buy a Woot-marked Skillet.

I'll probably be spending my budgeted money on the Woot-Off. If they had sold the skillet before today, I probably would have bought it without a second thought.

vote-for3vote-against

If we needed a skillet, I'd be tempted. But I'm not going to buy an extra skillet just for Woot-branding...

Love cast iron skillets! Been using them for (unintelligble) years. Love them, I say! But...size matters. (Yes, it does in certain circumstances.) So does the cost. Will wait in excited anticipation.

vote-for10vote-against

I'm guessing $19.99 + $5 shipping.

I have a few Lodge pieces already (from back when they didn't come pre-seasoned), but I'll probably be in for one (or two). Unlike the new shirts, this one's made in the USA. :)

I was JUST going to buy a skillet over the weekend. now i'm really glad i waited. :3 This is way cooler.

vote-for8vote-against

The real questions: Do I stay up until it shows up in the wee small hours of the morning, or do I take my chances and wait until I wake up Saturday morning to see if there are any left?

vote-for7vote-against

No, we have enough skillets that my wife doesn't u...OWWW. THAT HURT! Maybe we will buy a new one. :::rubs head vigorously:::

vote-for6vote-against

@jsoko: No alternative. There is no gas line run to my home and this doesn't work with induction stoves. :/

vote-for6vote-against

I already have a Lodge skillet (6 yrs old now), so yeah...I'll be in for one. Price $14.99 + $5 shipping.

BTW, the flavor that can be achieved from a properly seasoned cast iron skillet is totally unique. That fond-like crust on a steak or burger takes things to a whole new level. From experience, open a window and set your smoke alarms for stun before cooking!!!

vote-for5vote-against

@xavoc: I have a solution to your problem: Don't use an electric stove.

vote-for8vote-against

yeah I'm gonna buy one, you can have a cast iron pan forever. As long as its under like 25-30 bucks i'm in

vote-for7vote-against

I was actually under the impression that Lodge was the only cast iron (cookware) company in the US? I thought I saw this on Dirty Jobs/How That Was Made/etc. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

vote-for10vote-against

I've heard od Lodge before, they are actually on of the largest cast iron makers, so, I'm pretty excited about it too...Im hoping $20, and $5 for shipping. @capguncowboy, I bet they do come from Tenn! Puts me closer to! WooHoo!!

vote-for11vote-against

@xavoc: exclamation point sleeping bag!

I have a skillet but depending on what si... oh who am I kidding I will probably be refreshing my browser/mobile app Friday night to buy when it goes up!

vote-for6vote-against

Yes I will need a new cast iron skillet anyways mine was accidentally taken by an old roommate that I had a falling out with.

vote-for10vote-against

Now if it were say, a Woot! branded dutch oven... Yeah, I'd be all over that. Woot could do a Camping themed sale day between home, woot, deals, and moofi... Even maybe a kid's tent too.

vote-for8vote-against

I really don't need one... but how can I resist!? Also, I hope it ships from Tennessee... because then I'd be able to get mine fast!

vote-for24vote-against

YES! I just learned about it today and HOW COOL DOES THAT THING LOOK

vote-for11vote-against

Thanks for posting this @w00tgurl. I would have missed it. I could use a new one since I ruined the old one on my ex. Just kidding; I only used it in my imagination.

But I am going to get one of these.

vote-for9vote-against

They should sell it for BOC price...And yeah, I might buy one.

vote-for14vote-against

As much as I want to, I already HAVE a lodge skillet of that particular type... Maybe if they had released a flat griddle model instead?

Also, I wonder about the wisdom of removing surface area from the center of the pan (AKA where you need heat) performance-wise.

vote-for43vote-against

I don't need a new skillet, I don't need a new skillet, I don't need a new skillet...IN FOR 3.

I'm guessing $25+$5
