Factory Seconds have small scratches, dings, or other cosmetic imperfections, but they cook just as well as our "firsts," and will last just as long (that is, forever).
A tight-fitting cast iron lid turns your Field skillet into an all-purpose cast iron steaming, braising, and melting tool. Vintage-style self-basting ridges on the lid underside collect moisture and ensure it drips evenly across the cooking surface, keeping stovetop and oven braises simmering smoothly.
Cast Iron Lids are exact matches for the corresponding skillet sizes, so a No.8 Lid fits snugly on a No.8 Field Skillet and No.8 Dutch Oven. Field sizing is based on vintage cast iron conventions, so our No.8 size means a 10 ¼" width, edge-to-edge.
Here’s how lids measure up:
- No.6: 8 ⅜" diameter, 2 lb 13 oz, 3 ¾" height (closed, including skillet)
- No.8: 10 ¼" diameter, 4 lbs, 4 ½" height
- No.10: 11 ⅝" diameter, 5 lb, 4 ¾" height
- No.12: 13 ⅜" diameter, 6 lb 5 oz, 5" height
Field cast iron lids are 100% cast iron, including the seasoned cast iron knob.
Seasoned cast iron is safe for high-heat cooking and breadmaking, making our lid a better option that ceramic or enamel-coated products, or lids with synthetic knobs.
Field lids are Made in the USA, like all Field cast iron cookware. We source recycled iron from American vendors, and use green sand molds to pour cast iron.
Cast iron lids are seasoned with multiple coats of grapeseed oil. No synthetic coatings, Teflon, or other materials.
Hand-wash only and dry promptly. Apply Field Seasoning Oil after use to maintain seasoning and prevent rust.
Like all cast iron cookware, our cast iron lids should never be cleaned in the dishwasher, or left to drip or air-dry.
