Just a note, I bought a new Lodge 10" for my sister last year, and it was drastically rougher than any of the Lodge pans I use. I think that the surface just gets worn down over time, and that a new Lodge might not be any better than a new Ozark Trail.

That being said, Lodge cast iron is cheap enough that I don't mind spending (literally) a couple dollars more to buy that brand than a made-in-China Walmart brand.

I would say they are about the same thickness. However, the texture of the inner pan is kind of terrible. After 8x seasoning sessions, it still was nowhere as smooth as my lodge pan. And it really does get in the way of being non-stick. I ended up sanding mine down and reseasoning them. Works fine, but I'd only recommend these for something like a camp fire

Are these thinner than lodge, is that why they're so cheap? Set includes a 5" and 8" pan. Those are pretty useless sizes.

That is how, I have seen on youtube, people do it on their cast iron stuff.

Would this work for your standard gas grill?

Good deal....but heads up, some stores have this on clearance at $5 for the three pack. I bought it at that price. Also these things are crazy heavy.

Sorry if this is a really stupid question, but what does "Pre Seasoned" mean?
I know the method of seasoning cast iron via not washing it with soap... and letting the fatty oils season the iron. Just not sure what pre seasoned means?
I am asking for a vegan friend, hehe

Means they cost it with a food-safe coating to give it some nonstick properties out of the box. I always wash first with soap and water and re-season.

Ok got it, just wanted to make sure they were not using any real oil/fats.

Careful what you wish for. I bought the 3 pcs set for $10 local. I bought d\t similar offers posted here and primarily for the utility of the griddle. Used it once, it cracked like nut. Cheep Chinese manufacture = cheep useless garbage. My 2c
