The Gifts Lodge Employees Are Giving This Christmas

By: Lodge Cast Iron / December 8, 2021

Looking for some can’t-miss cast iron gift ideas? There’s no better place to go than the source — our own Lodge employees, of course! Here, they share favorite items their family and friends are likely to find underneath the tree this year. (And a couple they just might treat themselves to, as well.)

Wanderlust Set

“I recommend the Wanderlust cookware set to my camping buddies all the time! It’s designed to go wherever your travels take  you, plus these items are ideally sized for storing in small spaces. For example, the Dual Handle Camper Pan fits easily in your camper cabinet, and the 8 Inch Tent Skillet nests right inside the pan. Functional pieces that store with ease let you focus on the fun!” 
—Mandy Finotti, E-Commerce Manager


Enameled Dutch Oven

“There’s always room under our tree for a 6 Quart Enameled Dutch Oven.  It can make, store, and reheat soup — giving you more time to spend with your loved ones. An Enameled Dutch Oven is a gift that will surely make someone’s holiday merry and bright.”
—Kris Stubblefield, Chef

Seasoned Cast Iron Loaf Pan & Pie Pan

“I will be gifting some bakeware, specifically the Loaf Pan and Pie Pan. These items are perfect for home use or camping. They all can be used with a traditional home oven, a charcoal or propane grill, or any kind of smoker. There’s nothing like enjoying some smoked meatloaf and apple pie around the campfire!”
—Larry Raydo, Product Commercialization Manager

Carbon Steel Skillet

“Of all the cookware in my kitchen, I have the strongest emotional connection with my 12 Inch Carbon Steel Skillet. We make breakfast together every morning, and I love how quickly this skillet heats up — because I'm often cooking breakfast in a hurry. The long handle rarely gets too hot to touch with my bare hands, and the carbon steel is so lightweight that I can slide an omelette onto my plate with ease. Nothing ever sticks to it. It’s a magical pan, a kitchen essential, and, in my opinion, the perfect gift.”
—Jodi Lawrence, Associate Digital & Social Media Manager

Blacklock Braiser

“I can’t wait to see their reaction when my family opens my gift of Lodge’s new Blacklock Braiser. It’s lighter to handle, is triple seasoned, and just overall elevates the whole cooking experience. And this braiser’s versatility and durability just can’t be beat. I know it will be a gift we’ll use and enjoy for years.”
—Andrew Cash, Assistant Manager, Lodge Factory Store

Classic Cast Iron Skillet

“This year, we’re keeping things simple by giving 10.25 inch skillets to friends and family. It’s a good size for cooking most meals and a great item for people who are just beginning their journey with cast iron .”
—Sean Dunwoody, DC Utility
