Where: South Pittsburg, TN
Lodge Manufacturing has been in business since 1896, and they are the oldest manufacturer of cast iron cookware remaining in the United States. The company continues to make classic, long-lasting skillets and other tools in a manufacturing process honed by both age and necessity.
I took a tour of the 118-year-old company's plant in South Pittsburg, Tennessee to see how its popular line of factory-seasoned cast iron is made. If you've ever wondered just where your cast iron skillet came from, come along and see!
