Butterpat's Lili was my first foray into cast iron cookware, brought on by the desire to stop buying a new set of non-stick frying pans every 18 months when they lose their ability to release food. I was looking for a made-in-the-US craftsman level product that could evolve into a companion in the kitchen. I wanted the biggest cooking surface that could fit onto a single burner. To be honest, the price was a factor of hesitation. This is baller-level kit. And I knew it would take a while to be made and arrive based on the description on the Butterpat site, but then Covid hit and it took a really, really long time to come. And, yeah, it came and I can tell you that this massive thing has changed every meal since. It lives on my range full time. Every meal I make with it, this thing gets better and better. I've been inspired to spend hours researching cooking techniques on youtube because this pan opens up that opportunity to level-up my cooking. And it's almost a spiritual experience at the end of each day to look down into the shining, organic surface of Lili and see how we are changing, maturing, and improving together. What I do - Range: Gas Tools: Metal spatula from New West Knifeworks Cleaning: Drop of Dawn, scrub lightly with a chainmail scrubber thing, rinse, place on med-lo burner to heat and dry Daily season: Flax seed oil while still hot, rub in with rag, remove as much oil as you can. This is a beautiful pan. It gets better as you do. Highly recommended.
I just received my Butter Pat Lili skillet and I couldn’t be more pleased! I broke her in with Mexican night which for our family requires 2 packs of chicken thighs cooked unfurled. Lili’s extra large cooking surface handled it beautifully and retained its even heat after loading it full of cool raw chicken. Did the chicken stick to the bottom? Not a chance, every piece broke loose without a fuss and this is the first use! This is what your paying for when you choose Butter Pat, the only American ironware company that produces a full line of skillets hand made without machinery. A cast smooth surface, not milled smooth will release food like a champ! Simply put, you get what you pay for. Thank you Dennis
I purchased every custom cast iron skillet currently available as a test (I won't mention the names, you can figure that out for yourself). The only ones left in my kitchen is my Butter Pats, and they are here to stay. What a great piece of cookware.
I have a half dozen or so new and vintage cast iron skillets and did not think any could live up to the price of this skillet. But I bought it as a gift and after a year of the recipient (my wife) ignoring it, I tried it one day. Definitely the best large cast iron skillet I have used ... fine finish and for the size, light. Its still practically a ****** and I look forward to using it after a few years of seasoning.
My go to pan for baking. I love how evenly foods caramelize in the oven. For stovetop cooking it’s a fantastic griddle for pancakes, eggs and bacon. The original and healthiest non-stock cookware out there. Plus it’s gorgeous. I’m so proud to have this pan in my kitchen!
