One of the best things about cast iron is grilling your favourite meals any time of year. With Lodge cast iron, it’s easy to keep that summer grilling feeling going all year round. An amazing gift idea, this grill pan will be any grill master’s new favourite cooking tool.

2. You can’t destroy it

When they say Lodge cast iron is built to last, they mean it. Your cast iron can literally be passed down through generations with the right care – which is much easier than you’d think. If any rust does accumulate, it’s also super easy to restore your grill pan to its original glory. Watch the video above or learn more about our use and care tips and tricks.

3. You can use it camping

Remember how indestructible cast iron is? Not only can you use it on the stovetop or in the oven, you can take it camping and use it on an open flame. Plus, the more you cook with cast iron, the more seasoned it gets, making every meal better and better.

4. You can make the best snacks
