Lodge is electrostatically coated with a proprietary vegetable oil and cured at high temperatures to allow the oil to deeply penetrate the surface of the cast- iron. Natural sand mold surface is ideal for our new, seasoned, ready-to-use finish. Sturdy, integral, ovenproof handle and assist handle provide lifelong durability. Tightly controlled metal chemistry and exacting mold tolerances deliver consistent product for even heating and superior cooking performance. Individual cornsticks are shaped like ears of corn.
