The Lodge Elements 8-Piece Cookware Set can successfully complete your current cookware set or it can constitute a great set to start your cooking journey with. It does not need too much care or an experienced cook to handle some sort of special cooking processes. Simply by following a few basic instructions, you can use this set for many years to come and for preparing your favorite meals.
The stainless steel and the cast iron are the main materials used for the manufacture of the pots and pans included in this set. Both are easy to work with and clean. Moreover, their extreme durability does not cause problems, not even after a long-term usage.
The tempered glass from the lids and the silicone added on the stainless steel handles are very effective add-ons, both in terms of class and value. Moreover, Lodge has included a special silicone hot handle holder for you to use when the handles get too hot.
The pre-seasoned cast iron skillet is made in USA and it is absolutely perfect for cooking cornbread. It does not form hot spots and it gets cleaned without efforts. The cast iron skillet is the central piece of this cookware set.
Another important aspect proved to be more than useful is the added bottom weight, which keeps the pots and pans from moving while stirring the ingredients.
About the Manufacturer: Lodge
Lodge is a family business that has started in 1896. It was only in 1910 when the Lodge Manufacturing Company has first appeared on the market under this name. This is because the headquarters of the initial company were destroyed in a fire.
This company has gone through ups and downs, but it has not only survived the test of time, but it has also grown and become more and more successful. In our days, the grand-grandsons of Joseph Lodge run the company.
The Lodge Signature Series have appeared in 2007. They have promoted the combination between the elegant stainless steel handles and the shiny cast iron pots. The Lodge Elements Collection has appeared in 2011 and it is a combination of first-class stainless steel cookware and traditional cast iron skillets.

Here are some of the pros and cons of the Lodge Elements 8-Piece Cookware Set
Shiny and elegant – Every piece features dark grey portions combined with shiny silver portions that look great on your stovetop.
Ideal combination of metals – The cooper clad bottom and the stainless steel ensure an even distribution of the heat. The cast iron skillet is hot spots-free as well.
Stiff and sturdy structure – The bottoms of every pot and pan from this set are heavy, fact which means that they set very well on the stove and they do not move easily.
Handles get too warm – After a long exposure to heat, the handles tend to get too warm. However, the silicone hot handler included in this set is meant to solve this inconvenience.
The Lodge Elements 8-Piece Cookware Set is the result of constant and hard work. Since the first cookware from Lodge has appeared, they have perfected their techniques and combinations of metals. They provide tested and efficient products. This set is wonderful to have a tasty to use.
