Got the 12", 10", 8" set at the end of summer camping season for around $6 for all three a few years ago. Properly seasoned, these pans are excellent. I have top of the line stainless, and good to excellent enamelled cast iron, as well as a variety of other cast iron pans. These are my daily "go to". They're a bit lighter than Lodge. The surfaces are not completely smooth, allowing fats to distribute under cooked items. They do need the full, repeated, thin coat, seasoning at 450-500 to properly prepare. Nothing sticks. Easy clean. $5 for one small is not slick. The set can be found regularly at around $15 at end of season. Well worth that. Let the Lodge snobs come. I'd take these any day.

the Lodge 8" is frequently on sale for $7-$8. for such a small difference, (big % difference yes, but small numerical dollar difference for something that you will own for the rest of your life)

i would rather buy the Lodge product and support American jobs. is there anything wrong with Ozark Trail one? nope, they seem to get decent reviews. is one thicker than the other? i don't know. any pre-seasoning differences are a moot point as you will want to re-season either brand before using it for the first time in my experience

another issue is warranty. should you ever experience an issue with a Lodge product. you email them a photo of the defect, a photo of the imprint on the bottom of the pan, and in 7-12 business days you will have a brand new pan at your door. i am not sure what ozark trail's warranty is. can you take it back to a walmart store for replacement? who knows

i know it's hard to pass up a cast iron pan for under $5, i just wanted to share my opinion on the matter

Rough and thin. Lodge is much better but I have a Ozark Trail 12" one that I take camping and it does the job.

So they're not good for everyday use?

I got the same deal about two years ago. It was on clearance.

It may be too small for your daily use. Go with 10 inch at least or 12. I use this for deep fryer. Perfect for 2 people and save oil.

Are these really worse than Lodge? Thinner means they don't hold the heat as long but the food will be out of it by then. Thinner also means it heats up faster and it's lighter to handle. Is the non-stick worse than Lodge? Old timers say Lodge is not as smooth and non-stick as old-time cast iron. Has anyone used both Ozark and Lodge who could shed some light? Lodge Logic 8" is $9.90. Is that what they call themselves now or is that a specific product line of Lodge?
