Lodge Just Launched a New (and Affordable!) Cast Iron Collection That’s About To Change Your Baking Game
When it comes to cast iron, Lodge is iconic. Their classic skillet can do pretty much everything. Crispy bacon? On it. A whole roast chicken? No problem. Chilaquiles? ¡Por supuesto! It can even bake a delightful strawberry pie, savory tomato cornbread, and — oh wait, pies and cornbread are pretty much the only things we bake in our trusty cast iron skillets. But that, dear reader, is about to change. Lodge just launched a brand new bakeware collection, exclusively at Williams Sonoma, and it’s already got us dreaming about all the possibilities we can whip up in our kitchens. The collection includes a pizza pan, a loaf pan, and more specialty bakeware, including one of those cornstick pans that adorably make cornbread look like actual corn on the cob. Ingenious!
The big selling point, of course, is that cast iron is a total game-changer when it comes to making crusty bread, casseroles, and divinely crispy pizza. “I love this new bakeware collection because cast iron has amazing heat retention, which means whatever you make in these pans will emerge from the oven beautifully browned all-over,” our Tools Editor Riddley says. Plus, cast iron lasts forever and all of Lodge’s pans come pre-seasoned, which is quite convenient. Perhaps best of all, everything in the new Lodge bakeware collection at Williams Sonoma is affordable — nothing’s over $50. Let’s take a quick look at everything on offer before we get started on a long list of everything we want to bake in these gorgeous new pans.
