- Size: Both 15" outside width, but the Amazon has a thinner bottom and taller sides that slant in an extra 1/4" per side, making it 1/2" smaller cooking surface (not a big deal really)Cashforlife wrote: ↑ Any reason you would want to buy this instead of the AmazonBasics one, for half the price?

- Thermal mass: The lodge is 4.33 kg vs Amazon's 3.05 kg, about 42% more iron to load up heat and transfer it to your pizza (the whole point)
- Surface texture: Both are rough cast, but the Lodge at least has the potential to be sanded smooth, and with that bulletproof seasoning method will be fairly non-stick. The Amazon has special ridges for holding on to your pizza so you can't slide it off, and for blocking your attempt at scraping it off with a spatula (actually I have no idea what they're for; just guessing it's to reduce weight to make it easier to use despite making it less useful).
- And the Lodge has nicer, smoother handles (not a big deal).
