No one knows their way around the kitchen better than the Barefoot Contessa herself, Ina Garten. When we want to make something delicious and beautiful, we look to her cookbooks, website and show for advice. She's there for us when we need cookware recommendations, too. When we saw that her No. 1 cast iron pan was on sale for Amazon for just $20 on Prime Day, we couldn't wait to share the news! While we're enlightening you: Keep in mind that Amazon isn't the only one cooking up big deals today; markdown-mania is going on all over the web, partly for one discrete reason: "Deals are especially good this year as retailers offload overstock ordered earlier in the pandemic when consumer spending was high — a trend that's cooled this year as inflation has risen."
This killer pan does it all — sear, sauté, bake, broil, braise, fry and grill up a storm. Fried chicken, anyone? It's easy to care for and has helpful loop handles. Oh, and it's been pre-seasoned to create a perfect long-lasting patina.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).
Cooks to perfection
Ina Garten is not alone in her adoration of this skillet: More than 108,000 Amazon shoppers have given it a five-star rating!
"Perfect," declared one five-star reviewer. "At 58 years old I grew up using iron cookware and prefer to cook with it whenever possible. I have spent as much as $150 on a top-name brand 'nonstick' skillet only to be donated a year later to the thrift store! Never again...I love my iron skillets. I'll be back for more pieces."
Another shopper professed: "I love this skillet! I've used it on the stove: gas and electric...as well as over fire outdoors. I've owned it for eight months now and it still looks as new as it did...I've made many different foods in this, Utica Greens, bacon, eggs, steak, pizza...etc. All have come out perfect. ... I would say I would buy this again, but I see this skillet lasting forever!"
The pan will last, the deal won't
One shopper raved: "I really love this cast-iron skillet from Lodge! ... For me, a purchase like this is about an investment, and I want my investment to last a long time. ... I also really like the fact that this is made in the USA. American-made products are just not easy to find anymore. But really, the proof in the quality of this cast iron was obvious when I made sweet potato cornbread and baked it in the oven in this skillet. It came out so nice and brown and moist."
Let's send a collective thank-you to the dear Contessa, for bringing our attention to this beauty. And we will take a bow for finding it at such a low price! But hurry, this deal won't last.

Almost three weeks after arriving in Quebec City, they're still awaiting authorization from the Ministry of Education to study in English.
