Lodge Cast Iron

Lodge Cast Iron began making its mark in 1896 as Blaylock Foundry. With only 25 employees, the South Pittsburgh, Tennessee company produced a variety of kettles, pots, broilers, and skillets. When a fire destroyed the original building in 1910, its founder Joseph Lodge rebuilt and reintroduced the company as Lodge Manufacturing, a brand which has since become the leading name in cast-iron cookware.

Still located in South Pittsburgh on the banks of the Tennessee River, Lodge Cast Iron operates only two foundries, but unlike other small manufactures, it is able to make its pre-seasoned, easy care cookware for the masses. Lodge offers a variety of griddles, skillets with covers, and camp ovens for all of your outdoor adventures, and a variety of other cookware designed for your less adventurous, domestic side as well.
