Spud, I stand corrected. Lodge has a video out and their instructions look really good.

Spud, A cast iron skillet will break if it is subjected to fast temperature changes. I saw one taken off a cold porch in winter and put on a hot wood stove. The skillet shattered. I don't know if modern skillet will do the same. My information is old .... very old.

There is also a book, or a movie about "The Battle of Battle Creek" about the Kellogg-Post rivalry.

I have never liked cold cereals...d'ruther have oatmeal or grits.  Or Bacon, eggs, hash browns....I have never been able to make decent (crispy) hash browns from scratch, but roasted baby potatoes are just as good. 

The best hash browns I ever had were from the cafeteria in the County hospital I used to go to for medical care before I was old enuf for MedicareLess.  (The doctors and nurses were wonderful, too!)

I remember when it came out. Isn't Dana Carvey in it? I haven't seen it.

On Kellogs cereal, one of my favotite movies is The Road to Wellville (I think). Last time I checked the entire thing was on Youtube.

The porno joke made me laugh!  (So, it can't be all bad).

Spud, a 17" is huge!! (Somewhere, there's a really bad porno joke in there). If you're looking for a large cast iron skillet to cook a good deal of food in to eat off of the rest of the week (something I do myself, as I also live alone), I think a 12" or 13", with a lid, would be more than enough. 

I'd suggest getting a tape measure out, and from the center of a stovetop burner, go 8.5 inches either way. The 12" will go past the edge, and the 17" will go well past the edge. A difference of 2.5 inches added to the radius may not sound like much, but it practice it really is.

Would a 17 inch (or even a 12 inch) cast iron skillet cook reasonably well out to the edges on a small natural gas burner?

Comment by Idaho Spud on October 24, 2014 at 12:41pm

Thanks for the skillet website Pat.  My cast iron skillet is probably an 9 inch.  My non-stick is 12 inch, and it's my favorite.  I'm alone, but still like to cook large portions so I don't have to cook so often.  

I see the site has a 12 inch "seasoned" skillet for $37, and a 17 inch for $105.  I think I would love a 17 inch!

Thanks Joan.  I'll start looking in second-hand stores and try to find my medium sized cast iron one in the meantime.  And thanks for the care instructions.  

I have a huge non-stick skillet I loved until I stupidly got it too hot and the center bulged-up.  Doesn't work nearly as well now.

I assume a heavy cast iron pan will not bulge, but will too much heat ruin the glaze?
