Skillet

I've been looking at picking up a CI skillet to use on my Large Egg. I have a little CI fry pan that just fits in the dome (including handle), but it's so small I can't get much production our of it.
Is there a skillet sans handles that has some size that will work? I've seen a Lodge 17" with loop handles, but I think that's still going to be to big. Or does everyone just use a large skillet and cook with the dome open?

  • Wasted Words,
    Some cut the handles off so they can fit. Target sells one with a removeable handle in their camping dept. for approx. $10.00 but they likely do not have them this time of year. They think it is a seasonal item.

  • Wasted Words,
    What is it that you want to cook on a skillet?You may want to consider a dutch oven instead.

    Wasted Words,
    my 12 inch lodge fits handle and all with the dome down. lecrueset braiser fits, i also use a paella pan for alot of things, it gets a little warped over time but works just fine. ive also got a soap stone thats 15.5 inches that works at searing temps, it did crack years ago, but i cook pizza between 900 and 1100 degrees on it.

  • Wasted Words,[p]How big do you need / want?[p]Have you considered a Dutch Oven?
    https://secure.lodgemfg.com/storefront/products1.asp?idDept=1409&menu=logic[p]Lodge also has a 5 quart double Dutch Oven. 10.25 inch diameter, the lid doubles as a 10.25 inch skillet:[p]

  • Wasted Words,[p]I was over at WalMart and they have two lines of ceramic/cast iron cookware. Lodge is one of them.[p]The prices out here were fantastic and they work great in the large.

  • fishlessman,[p] I'm doing soapstone on an island in the kitchen. I could easily get pieces cut for the eggs. You like it better than the pizza stone?[p]Steve

    BENTE,
    Your to much man.I bet the trash men know who the party guy is in the neighborhood.They must do a shake and rattle routine when your container is picked up.No noise means a bad weekend.Don't take this the wrong way because I think I am talking about myself.To make a quote BEER'S.
