SQSK - the Lodge square skillet

If you're not a collector, this article will bore you.

Pictured above are two different versions of the Lodge square skillet.

The one on the right was model SQSK, and was made until circa 1993.

After that, they changed the shape to the one on the left. It's still square, but the sides are curved.

I don't know why. I guess to make it look more modern. It does have slightly more volume.

"No more wasted space," the product info claims.

They're referring to cooking bacon or french toast, since the corners are more conducive to cooking those things.


  1. I have one like the one pictured on the right. How does one determine how old it is? And how does one determine its value?

  2. I'd have to look at it, but I do know that since they were made until 1993, it's definitely 1993 or older. You can get more information on exact values from the Wagner and Griswold society, but don't tell Lodge I told you that-- they got very insulted when I made that suggestion on their facebook page, and banned me permanently. Good luck.

  4. I'd like one just like the one on the right. Thanks for posting this.
