Whether you’re a new chef or seasoned veteran, there’s one ubiquitous cast iron you’ll find recommended above all others: Lodge. Founded as the Blacklock Foundry in 1896 by Joseph Lodge in the town of South Pittsburg, Tennessee, the company now known as Lodge Manufacturing Company continues to make a variety of cast iron cookware that cooks love to this day. With, it’s worth noting, a price tag quite a bit lower than many other, equally-acclaimed cookware manufacturers.

When you think of Lodge, you probably think of its distinct cast iron skillets, but from enameled dutch ovens to more specialized accessories, there’s a whole range of equally great Lodge products that will take your kitchen to the next level in the new year, and each one for under $100 at that.

But first, the standard: a top-of-the line, preseasoned skillet that will last you the rest of your life.

With its mastery of the cast iron core, it makes sense that Lodge has some of the best enameled dutch ovens out there.

If you plan on grilling indoors, this cast iron grill pan will get you some serious heat.
