You know those cartoons where one character smacks the other over the head with a cast-iron skillet? That’s what will, in an abstract sense, happen to you if you don’t take advantage of Ozark Trail’s cast-iron sale, where you can nab three different sized pans for under $20.

Three skillets (8-inch, 10.5-inch and 12-inch), all pre-seasoned, all able to withstand years and years of use, both indoors and out, for just $19? What’s the catch? No catch, except for the fact that you actually have to take care of them, which means keeping them dry, no washing with soap and no letting them soak. If you’re new to cast iron, this is an unbeatable deal.

A couple things to note: If you’ve never cooked with cast iron before, you’ve been missing out, and you’ll also want to watch a how-to video like this one from Tasty (just look at all the things it can cook!). If you’re trying to figure out where the Ozark Trail brand comes from, it’s actually an in-house Walmart brand (thus, the affordable price point). And if you’re wondering whether these are really worth the hassle, well, just think about how many nonstick pans you’ve trashed over the years.

Pro tip: Walmart offers free shipping on orders over $35, so if you pick up two sets (one for you, one for a friend or family member), you’ll be golden.
