Another Cast Iron Thread

Anyone ever looked at this brand? https://shop.tastemade.com/products/...deoadtotmstore

I think the price is more than outrageous... it's utterly ridiculous when you can buy a pre-seasoned Lodge for $15!

Designer CI has become the latest darling for foodies. (along with the Instant Pot).

Not sure how much better than Lodge it could be and if that difference is worth the incremental price.

They want HOW much for those pans???

Wouldn't be efficient on a glass-top stove, either. I noticed a raised ring around the perimeter of the bottom, with the rest of the bottom recessed. For top efficiently, a pan needs to sit flat on the surface - you know. like a $15 Lodge pan does.

Isn't this a counter to the roughness I keep hearing about with the Lodge pans?

I won't buy Lodge because of the unfinished interior and the so called pre seasoning, but for the same $160 you can purchase 8 or 10 quality non collectible Griz or Wag. Seems a wee bit overpriced to me.

No way I'd pay that. We have plenty of household auctions to buy used iron on. I have a pile of it. Got 5 assorted sizes for $7 each. All Wagner and grizwald and a couple no name. Just says made in USA.

I really love my Instant Pot .... but it is a weird cult

Looks like another new suit for the Emperor!

I'll stick with my inexpensive old flea market cast iron pans.

My old cast iron pans are sort of like rescue dogs, they never seem to forget who gave them a little love and appreciation!

I can probably spend a few minutes with my finishing grinder on my Lodge skillet.
