Our electric wok is on its last leg. I figured I would invest in cast iron cookware to continue the legacy of my cooking show. After some research, I decided to go with the Lodge MFG 3.2 Quart Cast Iron Combo Cooker. Lodge MFG cast iron products are MADE IN THE U.S.A. by folks over in South Pittsburg, Tennessee. I ordered the Combo Cooker from Lazada (sort of like Amazon) here in the Philippines. Now, the Combo Cooker is listed for $62 USD on Lodge MFG’s website. I only paid 3,396 Philippine Pesos ($65.30 USD) on Lazada and it arrived in about 3 days. The slight difference in price made me suspect that it might end up being a cheap Chinese knockoff / fake product. After opening up the box, my instinct tells me that it’s authentic. I emailed Lodge MFG to inquire about whether or not they ship products to Manila. They confirmed that they do have an authorized distributor in the Philippines! I’ve already started cooking with the skillets and they’re awesome. The taste of food cooked in cast iron makes me think I’m back on a dirt road in Mississippi.
