While we *would* literally trust Ina Garten with our lives, usually, we can keep things low-stakes and simply rely on her for trustworthy advice on all things cooking related. Her cookbooks, television shows, and website offer a plethora of recipes, tips, and tricks that make life in the kitchen easier. That’s why, when we noticed that one of her favorite recommended pieces of cookware was on sale today, we freaked.

Garten loves the Lodge cast iron skillet, and today, you can get it on Sur La Table for just $16.95 (it’s usually $26.68). Sur La Table’s price is also less expensive than a large bottle of Ina’s recommended “good vinegar,” and you can get a lifetime of use out of cast iron if you care for it properly.

And once you’ve got you’re skillet, we also highly recommend adding this silicone handle cover to your order to prevent any burns! It’s only $5.99 and comes in red, blue and black.

Of course, if you really want to treat yourself, you might as well buy Lodge’s pre-seasoned pan set which also happens to be passively discounted today. The set includes the aforementioned skillet and skillet handle cover plus a griddle, grill pan and two pan scrapers.

What’s so great about cast iron? First of all, it’s very resilient, meaning a cast iron skillet can literally last you your entire life. It’s also prized for getting super hot and holding the heat, which makes it ideal for searing steaks and other meats. There are a lot of myths about cast iron cooking that have been disproved, so once you get your hands on one, you’ll realize how much of a kitchen workhorse your cast iron skillet really is.

These skillets, in particular, are American made and come pre-seasoned, so you can start cooking right away.

Once you get your hands on a cast iron skillet, Garten has several recipes you can use to test it out (though many recommend cooking up a big batch of bacon as your first dish in cast iron to help give it primo seasoning).

Try Garten’s skillet-roasted lemon chicken, panko-crusted salmon, and steakhouse steaks all show off the versatility of the Lodge cast iron skillet.
