It’s no secret that everyone here at Cool Material really loves their cast-iron. Whether you’re a fan of the versatility, the durability or the taste that cast-iron imparts on dishes, there’s something about the material that makes it better than almost everything else on the market. While a case can certainly be made for a cast-iron dutch oven or a grill/griddle combo, for us, it all starts with a quality cast-iron skillet like this Lodge 8″ Skillet that’s on sale for almost half off right now. The skillet that’s normally twenty bucks is currently $11 on Amazon, which makes it an absolute steal. Lodge makes some of the best cast-iron skillets out there, and saving 43% on a new piece to add to the collection is almost a no-brainer. Just to put it in perspective, you’ll be picking up a pre-seasoned and ready-to-go piece of cast-iron for less than a six pack of beer.
