LODGE Cast Iron

Here at Wilderness Road Mercantile, we provide cookware essentials to those preparing themselves for tough times or just wanting to return to the roots of a self-sustained lifestyle. Homesteading is a lifestyle of self-sufficiency. It is not defined by where someone lives but by the lifestyle choices they make.


Since everyone needs to eat on the homestead, our choice in cookware is America’s choice – Lodge. Since 1896, Lodge Manufacturing is one of America’s oldest cookware companies in continuous operation. It is still owned and managed by the descendants of the Lodge family.

Cast iron cookware is valued for its heat retention properties and its ability to withstand and maintain very high cooking temperatures. Therefore, it makes it a common choice for searing or frying, and is a good option for long-cooking stews or braised dishes. Seasoned properly, cast iron skillets and dutch ovens can develop a “non-stick” surface with regular use.

For a lighter weight pan, try a seasoned carbon steel pan from Lodge. They have all the  attributes of traditional cast iron, only with sloped sides, consequently making them much better suited to sauteing.
