We all know that Dolly Parton knows her way around a stage, but the country singer has proven herself to be just as skilled in the kitchen. We’ve put her recipes to the test, ending up with plenty of dishes we can’t live without. We’ve been just as impressed by Dolly’s grocery products, like her frozen mac and cheese and Duncan Hines mixes. There is, however, a Dolly-backed item that we haven’t had a chance to try yet, and we’ve been dying to get our hands on it: Her Lodge Cast Iron cookware collection.

It comes as no surprise that the collection reflects the music icon’s signature charm, incorporating Dolly-themed designs into Lodge’s high-quality skillets. It’s the cherry on top that the brand topped our best cast iron skillets list, so you can be sure that it’s top-notch, just like the singer herself. Right now, Amazon has an early deal on the collection before Prime Day kicks off in a couple of weeks, so keep reading to find out exactly what items you should snag before it’s too late.

What Is Lodge’s 10.25-Inch Dolly Parton Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Stamped Skillet?

First up, a versatile pan embossed with Dolly’s side profile, as well as a butterfly in flight. Butterflies are one of Dolly’s signature symbols — she loves them for their gentleness and beauty, according to an interview, and of course, there is her 1974 song “Love Is Like a Butterfly.” The collection doesn’t get more iconic than this, and it’s so gorgeous that you’ll want to have it displayed on your wall when you aren’t using it to cook everything from pancakes to one-skillet dinners.

The pan’s surface is seasoned with 100% neutral vegetable oil; the oil baked into the iron gives an easy release and prevents rusting. The more you use the skillet, the better the seasoning will get. It’s designed to last for a lifetime and longer, and the heat retention will give you stellar results — so it won’t be leaving your stovetop anytime soon.

If you’re interested in having a bit more surface area to cook with, there’s also a 12-inch version of the skillet that’s on sale. Also using butterfly imagery, this design varies with Dolly’s acoustic guitar as the centerpiece. Other than that, its features are exactly the same.

Our former tools editor, Riddley, says that Lodge’s cast iron “browns food beautifully” and is lighter than other cast iron models she tested, making it easier to move. The handles help in that regard, too, and the tall sides keep food from splattering. Two convenient pouring spouts can be found on either side, to boot. “Basically, this Lodge skillet has everything you need in a cast iron skillet and nothing you don’t,” Riddley wrote.

Last but not least is the unique guitar-shaped skillet that’ll bring a smile to your face every time you use it. The guitar’s neck serves as the pan’s handle, and the miniature size is ideal for single portions and small kitchens. Plus, who wouldn’t want to have such an adorable piece on display in their kitchen? Really, you can’t go wrong with any piece in Dolly’s cast iron collection, so make sure you snag them before the limited-time sale ends!
