The iconic Lodge cast-iron skillet can be had for a steep discount on Prime Day.

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET's guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.

It's hard to find anything for $18 these days, never mind a sturdy piece of kitchen cookware from a legacy producer that should give you decades of use. Right now, our favorite Lodge 10.25-inch preseasoned cast-iron skillet can be had for less than $20. If you or someone you love is short a cast-iron pan, pick one up and find out why this rugged cookware has earned a cult-like fanbase. 

Or I suppose I could just tell you...

Cast iron gets high praise from professional chefs and home cooks for its ability to retain high heat, making it a perfect candidate for searing burgers, steaks, chicken breasts and home-fried potatoes with that coveted crispy crust. Cast iron requires slightly different care than other cookware, including some periodic seasoning and careful cleaning. Lodge skillets do come preseasoned and ready for action. 

Lodge cast-iron skillet deals

Speaking generally, a 9- or 10-inch pan will likely be the best size for most people but there are Lodge skillets as small as 6 inches and as large as 15 inches on sale for Prime Day.
