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 to all your dishes, there’s just 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 eighteen bucks is currently on sale for less than ten bucks on Amazon, which makes it an absolute steal. Lodge makes some of the best cast iron skillets out there, and saving 45% 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.
