[Amazon Canada] DEAL DEAD Lodge Cast-Iron Skillet, 12-Inch, $29.99

Hey everyone, I've been watching the price on this Lodge skillet for a while and this is the best price I've ever seen on it. It has been hovering above $50 for a while now and c@melc@melc@mel has it as the best price ever!

Great for pan pizza, steaks, etc, enjoy.

Great pan...use mine a lot. BTW if you're near the US border, Walmart often has them for $15USD. They're $18 today.

Don't you find the 12" too heavy to move around? I wanted to get the 10.25" but this is a great price...

For those who don't want a 12 incher, the Lodge "Logic Chef" 10 incher is also on sale for 25$ (normally 30$ to 40$): https://www.amazon.ca/Lodge-LCS3-10-Inc ... B00008GKDJ
For a comparison of the "Logic Chef" LCS3 vs the "standard" L8SK3, see:

TL;DR: the LCS3 has a smaller inner diameter (7" vs 8") and doesn't come with a silicone handle.

it's definitely a heavy duty pan, and you're using two hands most of the time (hence the "assist handle" on the other end)

it works well for larger quantity meals / bigger roasts / etc

I have a few different sizes of cast irons, and the 12" is typically used when i'm roasting a whole chicken or I'm making a big meal. As mentioned above, works well with pizza too.

Is a silicone handle worth the investment?

No idea; I've never seen or used one. I imagine that if you're doing a lot of cooking or are cooking under any pressure, it could prevent burns from accidentally going for the piping hot handle. Otherwise, not having to put on mitts to move your pan is a convenience. How much that's worth to you is, of course, entirely up to you.
I don't know if those are still being sold (if yes, probably cooking supply stores or WalMart) but I know a couple of people who use those padded fabric holders. I assume they're cheap though they do get hot-ish.
If you don't want to deal with mitts and don't want to shop around for stone age technology, perhaps a good investment would be oven gloves? I've been thinking about getting a pair myself.

Just be cognizant of the hot handles and wear oven mitts when appropriate. Otherwise, I wouldn't worry about it. It's too big and heavy to be moving around all the time; it usually just sits there on the burner unless it's coming in or out of the oven. It's so heavy that you shouldn't have to touch it to use a spatula, unless it's a huge pizza and you're an idiot like me:

I've burnt myself twice on the handles. Both times were after 500 degree oven removal (pizza, mmm) to get a grip on the pan and get a spatula under it. It was definitely my own fault. If you're super absent-minded like I am, maybe it's a good idea.

I bought this pan from Amazon.ca, it came with the Lodge silicon handle. The handle lasted 1 use before it started to melt/disintegrate. After about 3 uses, it melted more and we just tossed it in the trash.

what the heck were you cooking? silicone becomes unstable at 572F and the handle has a life time warranty. mine is fine after repeated uses

Amazing how stingy Amazon.ca has gotten. Bought this a week and half ago, still new. They rather me ship the one I have back to them and buy it again at the new price than give me a price adjustment.

Is there a difference between brands of cast iron skillets? There is also a 12.5inch cast-iron skillet from Utopia Kitchen for 21.99 that also gets Prime shipping.

yes, lodge are made in US while your brand is unknown (most likely china). some people prefer the safety standard of american made products. well to be fair, lodge could source their iron from china...
