The best-selling Lodge mini skillet is just $12 on Amazon
Any home cook knows the difference a cast iron skillet makes when it comes to whipping up fried eggs for breakfast or a late-night batch of brownies. And there really aren’t too many pans, especially if it’s a pan Amazon shoppers agree “every kitchen needs.”
The Lodge Miniature Stove offers an ideal surface for baking, cooking and baking in one serving with its non-stick design and small 3.5 inch diameter. The mini skillet has a smooth finish, which provides an easy release when looking to serve eggs or sautéed vegetables. It’s seasoned with 100% vegetable oil instead of the synthetic coatings and chemicals traditionally found in other pans, and the “very versatile” pan gets more seasoned with every use, making it a must in the kitchen.
Plus, it’s super easy to clean by hand with mild soap and can be dried with a lint-free cloth or paper towel. When you’re done, just lay it on your stovetop until your next meal arrives. Coming in at just $12, it’s no wonder the casserole is one of the Amazon’s best-selling pans.
