Like the title says, is Lodge a better product for the money? Are there others?

What kind of cast iron cookware are you looking for.

Lodge is made in US.

Camp Chef, isn't but, that's a cost issue. Administration is in US. Many items carrying a Cabelas' label/logo are Camp Chef.

Both of those are currently made.

Also, if you're looking on Ebay, I search Balto, Martin, Findlay, McClary, Smart, Javelin, & Wagner. Griswold is also good, but I don't collect it. These all have earlier items and are not considered current.




& I, I took the road less travelled by.

We have almost all the fry pans, pots from Lodge - and we have had them for over 20 years. My wife transfers them from the RV to the house and back and forth - and they still look like they are new. To say they are good is a statement of fact, but to say they are made in the U.S.A. is priceless. Safe travels.

I have lots of old stuff; Wagner, Griswold, etc and a few newer pieces. I thing the old stuff is way better. Hard to put a finger on. Its seems smoother, heats more evenly. I would say do some yard sales and flea markets and look for old stuff.

Having gotten rid of some really old cast iron cook ware a few years ago, we recently bought a new Lodge 10" frying pan. Works just fine

I agree with Katuna. Old is so much better. So long as it was taken care of. Antique shops.

I would go with Lodge if I was buying new and then make sure that you season it right the first time. Also I would get the one that has a lid with the rim around the edge to hold the coals on top without them sliding off. I have a 12" and a 10", size depends on howw many people you want to cook for. Here is a neat web site that tells you all about dutch ovens, click on "Oven care" on the left side. Also has some neat recipies.

I have a few older pieces that are Lodge and all of my new stuff is Lodge. I did receive a Coleman DO as a gift and haven't opened it yet.
