For many home chefs, cooking with cast iron is the only way to go. Thanks to its impressive heat retention and nonstick capabilities, a cast iron skillet has long been the choice for preparing just about anything. And if you're looking to add a timeless piece of cast iron cookware to your collection, you can snag a Lodge Cast Iron Round Pan for just $14 at Amazon (it's 42% off!).

The 8-inch pan is perfect for cooking small meals or side dishes, complete with two handles to make transferring a breeze. It's been pre-seasoned with 100% vegetable oil, making the skillet effortlessly nonstick. The material lends itself extremely well for even heating—so you won't be bothered with hot spots—and it's compatible on the stove, in the oven, on a grill, and over a campfire.

Use the pan for just about any mode of cooking, like searing, sautéing, grilling, frying, roasting, braising, broiling, and baking. It's the perfect vessel to bake a batch of cornbread, or sear a hunk of steak. When you're done cooking, just follow the cast iron rules for cleaning: hand wash, make sure to completely dry, and finish off by rubbing with a neutral cooking oil.
