Full equipment review and results chart:

Cheap and tough, a cast-iron skillet is a kitchen workhorse, but the upkeep makes some cooks balk. Could enameled cast-iron pans, which need no special care, top the classic?

We tested 10 12-inch cast-iron skillets (4 traditional cast iron, 5 enameled cast iron) to find the best one:
Lodge Classic Cast Iron Skillet, 12"
Calphalon 12-in. Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet
Camp Chef 12" Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet
T-fal Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet, 12"
Le Creuset Signature 11 3/4" Iron Handle Skillet
Mario Batali by Dansk 12" Open Sauté Pan
Lodge Enamel Coated Cast Iron Skillet, 11"
Rachael Ray Cast Iron 12-inch Open Skillet with Helper Handle
Staub Cast Iron 12" Fry Pan
Tramontina Gourmet Enameled Cast Iron 12 in Skillet with Lid
