On January 13, 2022, Lodge Cast Iron announced the unveiling of a mammoth skillet, commissioned to be a centerpiece in its Lodge Museum of Cast Iron in South Pittsburgh. In a Facebook post, the company shared:

“If you happened to be driving down I59 yesterday, you might have seen something very special headed north! The World’s Largest Cast Iron Skillet made its way to our campus yesterday to find its home in the Lodge Cast Iron Museum.”

Mike Otterman, CEO and president of Lodge Cast Iron, explained to WZTV that the museum aimed to showcase the company’s vision to the world.

“In 2021, we celebrated 125 years of Lodge Cast Iron, and as we look ahead to 2022 and the next 125 years, we’re thrilled to be bringing the Lodge Cast Iron Museum to South Pittsburg. Covering everything from the history of cast iron to how it’s used today, the museum is an exciting opportunity to celebrate our community and share Lodge with the world through this unmatched experience,” Otterman said.

The colossal skillet resides in the museum alongside a company tour that provides insight into the history of cast iron cookware, offering visitors a glimpse behind the scenes to witness the skillet-making process. Additionally, guests can explore stories behind various cast iron collections and the southern cuisine served in them. The museum also features a shop at the Factory Store and a Big Bad Breakfast restaurant.

Regarding the skillet, Lodge Cast Iron emphasized its motto of “go big or go home,” encouraging fans to capture photos with the monumental skillet – boasting it’s “big enough to fry about 650 eggs.”
