Expert cooks and grandmothers agree: Nothing beats cast iron cookware. It retains heat beautifully, can be used on the stove or in the oven, and if you treat it right, it will last for decades. Plus, when well-seasoned, cast iron can be just as non-stick as Teflon.

One of the most respected cast iron brands out there is Lodge, which has been around since 1896! That’s why we’re especially excited to see that you can get a $75 Lodge Combo Cooker right now on Amazon for just $50. Yup, a two-piece cast iron set for over 30 percent off.

The Lodge Combo Cooker is an absolute steal, because it’s two pans in one: A covered 3.2-quart pot that can be used as a Dutch oven, for soups, stews, braises and even deep frying. And a 10.25-inch skillet perfect for sautees, morning eggs and much more — which also acts as a lid for the pot.

This two-pan combination has more than 17,000 five-star reviews on Amazon. Shoppers rave about the versatility and durability: One reviewer reports that “fried chicken will never taste as good as in a Lodge cast-iron skillet. Neither will biscuits and gravy. Teflon and all those other pans will be dead and buried while your great grandkids are using these to make meals for their great grand kids. Don't skimp and buy cheap knock-offs.... My advice DO NOT misread or hurry the instructions. Season and care for these exactly like it says and you will love these forever.”

Seasoning is an important part of cast iron care, and this combo cooker from Lodge does need to be seasoned occasionally; instructions come with the Combo Cooker. This only takes a few minutes, and if you do it often enough, this Combo Cooker will indeed become something you can pass down to your grandkids and beyond.

Said another happy home cook, “...So far, I have made two very pretty loaves of bread in this dutch oven. I have also used the shallower pan to scramble eggs, and the larger pan to reheat roasted vegetables.”

“I have used it several times to make stew,” said this customer. “We decided to replace all our teflon coated cookware with stainless and cast iron. It was the best decision ever, and I love to cook with them on our new gas range and oven. I own several cast iron pots and pans made by Lodge and they are all fantastic.”

"I've been using this set for about two years now, and it's great," reports a fan, referring to the set as her kitchen workhorse. "I love that each piece functions separately and together.... I like cooking in larger batches so the larger size is very important to me.... I'm ditching the steel (hard to clean!) and teflon (that stuff always ends up coming off into food eventually no matter how nice you treat it) skillets I have because lodge cast iron beats it all IMO...."

Take advantage of the price drop on "the king of cast iron pots" and nab this set!
