Back in late January when I was contemplating getting a 13.25 inch Lodge cast skillet, it was one that d. a. Niel's had previously ordered to bring in for stock... but it never arrived. They did have a 12 inch that had arrived, and looking at it made me realize that really was the biggest I could hope to use on myr stove top anyway. Only issue was, they didn't have a lid for it.
So I did a little digging and found that the 7 Quart Dutch Oven came with a 12 inch lid that would fit our pan. It didn't take much calculating to realize that $80-$90 for a lid was a worse deal than $140 for a lid with a pot... that's like a buy the lid and get a pot for $60, or less.
It took a while for our special order to arrive, but I'm looking forward to getting some good use out of my new 12 inch skillet, dutch oven, and lid!
