The tools are at home on the stovetop, as they are in the oven, on a grill, or over a campfire and are essential for cooking next-level renditions of your favorite food. Want to sear a steak like a seasoned chef? You need cast iron. Want to cook the crispiest, most succulent chicken you’ve ever cooked? You need cast iron. Want to make kick ass cornbread? Cast. Iron. The list goes on. In short, the tools are some of the most versatile in your kitchen. And today, in honor of Cyber Monday, Amazon has an excellent sale on a 5-piece set of cast-iron cookware from Lodge. While normally $150, the set is priced today at $70. That’s a hell of a deal.
