You should use vegetable oil to smear it to give it a good coating instead of olive oil. Olive oil is not meant to withstand long duration of high heat.

Had a hankering for cornbread, but didn't have what I thought was an appropriate skillet. I found the 8" skillet at Walmart. I ran into a friend who thought I was crazy for attempting cornbread without seasoning the pan. She suggested I take it out in the yard, pour in some vegetable oil and a lit match.\ (no I'm not from Alabama, West Virginia or Kentucy!)

Against my better judgment and the fire laws, I decided to attempt a batch of cornbread on a virgin skillet. I must admit some of the best cornbread I've had in quite a spell (sorry mom!)
What a great skillet, can't wait until my next batch of cornbread.

I just got this skillet for Christmas and used it for the first time this morning. To respond to one commenter, it is the perfect size for frying two eggs, but as another commenter noted, the eggs stick. I used it "as is", but I will try seasoning it as I would a non-pre-seasoned one tonight and see if that makes a better surface for cooking. Also, the width is measured across the top, rather than the base of the pan, which is narrower. I didn't realize this when purchasing so wanted to pass along that info for online order-ers. (My roommate has a skillet that is 8" across the base and I was trying to order that size, but this size is also handy.) In any case, I love lodge and their quality made in the USA cookware, I just need to break this in a little. :)

In answer to a previous question: This is an excellent pan for cooking two eggs, which I often do. This pan, along with a 12" and dutch oven seem to cover all my needs for cooking, and they're easy to take care of.

I recently purchased your 8" L5SK3 skillet.
My eggs stick, what am I doing wrong?
How much oil should I use?
What is the best oil to season?

'Ol' # 8' is going strong since 1986. 3 house, 2 wives, 1 kid, umpteen cats - one skillet. Love My Lodge.

I have a quick question...

Is the 8" pan the perfect size for frying two eggs? I have the feeling that the 6 1/2 inch might be a bit too small.

Handy at home;handy on the go.With the optional cast iron lid I'm sure this skillet will outlast this hobo.

This was my first foray into cast iron, and I'm chagrinned only that I didn't do it decades ago. After a bit of a learning curve, this has become the ideal cooking pan for small items. I do only low temp cooking, like fish, burgers and pork chops. I settled on olive oil, after a bunch of research and experimentation. The food slides around like greased lightning. Now there's no black residue and just a modicum of maintenance. All I do to clean it is run mild hot water over it and rub with a non-scratch pad with almost no effort. Then dry with a couple paper towels. Then put back on the burner on low heat for 5 minutes to evaporate any residual moisture. Then add about two teaspoons of olive oil and smear it all around to give it a good coating. The next morning I wipe off the excess. That's it. I'm in the zone now. I could NOT BE HAPPIER with this skillet.
