12-Inch Cast Iron Skillet


Winner of the Popular Mechanic's 2021 Gear of the Year award. This is our large-size skillet, perfect for family dinners, comparable to a vintage size #10. The cooking surface is machined smooth for non-stick performance. The weight is optimized for the perfect balance of heat retention and ease of use. All Stargazer cookware is American-made and backed by our lifetime warranty.


Bare vs. Seasoned

We offer our cookware in two finishes: bare or seasoned. Our bare skillet is ideal for the cast iron veteran or DIYer and will need to be seasoned by you before it is used. This skillet is dipped in food-grade mineral oil to protect it in transit. Just wash off the oil and season it however you like.

Our seasoned skillets have already been seasoned by us with two coats of our oil blend, made with canola, grapeseed, and sunflower oil. This blend is certified non-GMO, kosher and free of animal products. Our seasoned skillet will arrive ready to cook, right out of the box.

The Stargazer Difference

  • Smooth cooking surface. The entire interior of our skillet is machined smooth. That means food sticks less and it’s a breeze to clean.
  • Optimal weight. Lighter than most, our 12-inch skillets tip the scales at 6.5 lbs for the perfect balance of heat retention and ease of use.
  • All natural. No toxic chemicals, no space-age materials, just iron.
  • Lasts forever. Treat your cast iron properly and it will last many lifetimes.
  • Drip-free flared rim. No more pour spouts. Pour from anywhere with confidence.
  • Stay-cool handle. Burn your hand on someone else's pan. Our forked handle stays cooler much longer than the cast iron you’re used to.
