Lodge is made in USA, and has been for a long time. Buy it once and your g-ggrandchildern will still be using it, buy American, we in the USA need to keep our money and job here. Lodge is the best regardless as to where it is made, but luckily it is made here!
I have one that my Grand parents had, it has to be at least 125 years old my great grand parent brought it to the states from Belgium.
There are no names it's about 20 inches round and 4 inches deep. Its great for deep frying fish.
I found if you plan to season the pan use lard and let it get hot for a long time.
Cast cook ware is what I look for when my wife drags me into an antique shop or flea market. I have scored a few very nice pans in the $20 range. I find the Grizwalds and Wagners to be of the best. A good cleaning and an easily done reseasoning makes even a rusty pan look like new. I like saved bacon grease for doing the seasoning.
