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)

Is a silicone handle worth the investment?WHITEMARKET wrote: ↑Aug 21st, 2017 10:09 amFor 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.

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.

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:

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

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...
i dont think they ever have a price protection policy...
