I love my 12" lodge, but these are worth a gamble for making my post-steak pan sauce and being able to comfortably pour it out of anything weighing less than 10+ pounds. worst case scenario send the second one out as a gift. in for 1 set.
@sippinndippin MrNews is quite correct; slightly elevated levels of aluminum have been found in the brain cells of dementia patients. This was found to be due to poor metabolism on the part of the cell, e.g., it was collecting there because the cell was not able to get rid of it. Result of cellular degradation, not causal.
I bought an aluminum griddle from this company a couple of years ago; its pretty nice. We do most of our cooking in 100 year old cast iron skillets and have several, or I would buy these. The iron ones are quite heavy, I can see where the light weight would be an advantage for some people.
