In reference to this line "The point where iron is ready to cast is 2300-2500.F. That doesn't come close to the point of stratification of certain metals." specifically, can you elaborate on what metals you mean?

Lead has much lower melting point so that should be out and cheap Geiger counters would show radiation. It just seems like we'd be able to do some kind of chemistry test to ID it or you could go overkill and use a Spectrometer like this: https://youtu.be/7QmimR6GNfk to be certain.

The suspicion is healthy and justified given how small the profits must be shipping something this heavy and that they've gotten caught with harmful material in other things. But most of those probably weren't melted near these temps. I'm certain that China cuts corners but I try to avoid speculation without proof to not muddy the waters when there's so many other things to critique them for.

By the same logic, the world stole gunpowder, fireworks, paper, silk, compass, and an infinite amount of technological advances from China over the generations. Most of the technologies you have on your American products like filters and stickers on Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook were copied from Chinese tech companies. You aren't aware of them because the mass media and tech companies don't let you know.

You just seem to be parroting the talking points that have been repeated by the mass media. Read more literature and Noam Chomsky's book, Manufacturing Consent: The Political Economy of the Mass Media.

Also, no one talks about the American companies behind the "Made in China". American companies love it when they are not to be blamed when they are the ones supporting the Made in China. They are the ones who approve the quality and quantity of the products being made in China and sold to you, the consumer, who blames China for making your things. They just hide behind China, making more money off you without taking any blame. You're blaming the wrong people. Crony capitalism will keep chugging along with the help of people like you.

This is a really great deal-these are a solid investment, even if they're not $40 a pop lodge or ridiculously expensive cruet ware

Note that the 8" pan is really a lot smaller than you would expect-good for a couple eggs at a time at most

So I will be the downer here. I have a couple of cast iron pieces for specific tasks. I have electric so I find using cast iron on them just doesn't work as well for me.

I do use them on the grill and in the oven. I only have Lodge made in the USA pans. All my cookware is either made in the USA or in Europe. I don't cook in anything made in China/India etc.

I just don't trust certain Chinese products and cast iron is one of them. I do use Chinese made porcelain. They have been making quality porcelain products for a long time. Cast iron on the other hand, while a mainstay of Chinese cooking for centuries, is suspect to me.

I don't really have a lot of evidence frankly. I only have some anecdotal chat with some engineers that have worked there and most every cast iron product is melted down and reused. That includes engine blocks and the like. No way to know what was in those.

The point where iron is ready to cast is 2300-2500.F. That doesn't come close to the point of stratification of certain metals.

So basically why take the risk? There are some great quality Lodge products made right here at a decent price. My 2 cents.

lol says suspicion is healthy and justified then says tries to avoid speculation without proof.

While speculation without proof is questionable in a argument, when it comes to your health, and possibly irreversible in harm or deadly, it's more than fair to be overly cautious, speculative and careful, and erring on the side of caution.

Thanks for the warnings.. was debating on buying.. i think i'll pass.

Just wondering but what temps are you guys cooking at in these pans? If temps were that high to cast them than anything below that would be removed and anything higher than that would then be irrelevant because if you cook at temps that high then you will ruin the integrity of the iron. So I gues I say all this to say even if it is China in a product like this I would think you should have no worries.

I have a few sets of these from a couple years ago I use to use and still have several boxed sets (we gift them/they clearanced to $4 a few years ago)... I also purchased the 15" a couple of months ago, along with a Lodge 15".

In my opinion, honestly, I would stick with the lodge. We just seemed to have a hard time with seasoning remaining, Etc with the Ozark Trail. Additionally, after using for a while the OT ones had started to have the center slightly become convex, where as the Lodge have not
