Lodge Cast Iron

So we’ve pretty much stopped using any of the new fangled non-stick pots and pans. And long stopped using aluminum. Stainless steel – more for boiling and steaming. But when it  comes to searing, grilling, stir fry and just plain old fried stuff…. we’ve switched to cast iron. Particularly Lodge cast iron products. Finely crafted, good material and no worries about toxic recycled iron stuff made somewhere else.

For generations – Lodge has been the cookware of the outdoors. And now indoors too.

Nestled alongside the Cumberland Plateau of the Appalachian Mountains is the town of South Pittsburg, Tennessee (population 3,300). It was here that Joseph Lodge and his wife settled and, in 1896 opened his first foundry.

Originally named The Blacklock Foundry after Joseph Lodge’s friend and minister, the company gained success until May of 1910 when it burned down. Just three months later and a few blocks south, the company was reborn as Lodge Manufacturing Company.

Joseph Lodge created a legacy of quality that has thrived through two World Wars and the Great Depression and is still carried on by his family today. Both our CEO and Chairman are Joseph Lodge’s great-grandsons who continue to evolve our product line and improve manufacturing methods. While many worthy competitors have fallen by the wayside, Lodge’s dedication to quality, technology, and employees have helped it not only survive but flourish.

Check out the website of Lodge Cast Iron which features great recipes, charitable work and awesome stories about the company.
