This season marks the stretch when your pots, pans, skillets, and other items get heavy use, making it also the season when you realize your budget picks simply aren’t cutting it any longer.

You’re in luck: Multiple retailers have slashed their prices on heirloom-quality cast iron pieces across iconic retailers like Lodge, Le Creuset, Staub, and more.

Best Early Black Friday Lodge Deals
Crafted on the banks of the Tennessee River, Lodge cast iron cookware is treasured for being versatile, lightweight, and relatively inexpensive in comparison to other luxury brands—but it’s still a workhorse in the kitchen. This staggering list of impressively discounted sizes, shapes, and colors from the American-made brand gives you plenty of options in decking out your countertops. Act fast! Because the brand is so beloved by customers, these deals are likely to sell out quickly.
Start with the 10.5-inch square grill pan, a favorite across wedding registries and barbecue nights. At 45 percent off, its lowest price all month, who could say no? All Lodge pans come pre-seasoned, so you can start making Mama’s recipes right away.
You can also get plenty of use out of a reversible grill and griddle combination pan, available for 41 percent off. Reviewers rave about its performance making burgers, pancakes, eggs, steaks, and more. Fair warning; however, its skill with breakfast foods will have you going to bed every night just dreaming of your next meal.
Don’t forget your discounted care kit in case you need a little extra reminder of how best to brush, season, and handle your cast iron so it’s loved through the generations.
