Lodge launched a new look as announced in the Times' Dining section yesterday. Lodge's Signature Series gives the cast iron classics a more modern look a la All-Clad. The stainless steel handles also stay cooler on the stove.
The premium look and functionality comes at a price, of course. This good looking new guy from the Signature Series is $100.
This old-fashioned Lodge Logic 12" skillet is $26.95. Memories of your parents and parent's parent's using the same pan: priceless.
