I went back up to Commerce today and stopped by the Lodge outlet store. I didn't buy too much stuff today. I picked up a trivet, a few handle holders, and a 6" skillet from the seconds rack that was only $4.38. They had skads of 8, 10, and 12" skillets on the seconds rack this trip. The 12"ers were only $12.83 or so with the 10 and 8'ers being slightly less. I already had one 8" and two 10"ers. There is nothing wrong with them that would impact the cooking. I had to look hard for the slight flaw on the 6"er that I bought. I bought the small skillet thinking it would be good for melting butter or heating sauce on the grill.
