New 12-inch DO!

The wife decided we needed a bigger DO!

We went to Cabela's who had the lowest advertised price we could find for a 12-inch oven....they didn't have any Lodge ovens in stock, so we opted for the Cabelas version.

We stopped at Walmart on the way home (a different one that we normal go to), and found they had the Lodge 12-inch for $59! We returned the Cabela's version, and save $14 on a better brand, made in the US.

So - I've seasoned the new one (cooling as I type). I burned hair off my arm, melted part of an oven mit to the new one, and spilled some of the fancy seasoning stuff Cabelas sells in my shoe.....but we are cooking in it tonight!

I might even cook in both the 10-inch and the 12-inch.

Nice! Those lodge DO are pre seasoned, so you really didn't need to do it again...but, it definitely won't hurt it!

I love cooking in our DO. We also have two 12" Lodge skillets that we use a few times a week at home. The DW likes cooking bacon in it! Bacon grease really just adds to the seasoning!! [:)O]
