If you only ever cook with Teflon, then you’re missing out on a juicy secret: cast iron is king in the nonstick cookware category. This heavy-hitter is superior when it comes to conducting heat evenly and churning out tender, fall-off-the-bone meats; crispy, perfectly done veggies and more.
Whether you’re a cast-iron newbie or a seasoned pro, you’ll love this news: Walmart is having a massive sale on cast-iron cookware by Lodge, a leader in the category. Prices on top-rated pieces like pans, griddles and Dutch ovens start at just $20 — and discounts are almost 60 percent! Check out our top picks below.

Treat this pre-seasoned pan the right way (that means hand wash, dry and rub with cooking oil), and you’ll have a piece of perfection to hand down through generations.
One fan wrote: “I've gone through so many nonstick pans that eventually can't be used because the surface gets scratched, nicked, and wears [off]. But you'll never have that problem with a good cast iron pan like this one.”
