A cast iron skillet can do a lot more than sear thick cuts of meat (although it's pretty great for doing that). Fry eggs and fish, bake a thick cookie cake or pizza and make a big plate of bubbling hot, crispy macaroni and cheese. If you're missing out, in that you don't have one, Amazon is offering up to 40 percent off of Cuisinel Cast Iron Cookware right now.

Shop: Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron Skillet with Glass Lid and Handle Cover, $27.00 (Orig. $39.99)

Cuisinel's basic pre-seasoned cast iron 10-inch skillet comes with a tempered glass lid and handle cover for seamless cooking. It has a smooth finish and provides an even heat distribution for using on the stove, in the oven or on a grill. It's an Amazon favorite and is currently on sale for $27.99 (originally $39.99). While the product description says the skillet should last you years, all of Cuisinel's products come with a 1-year money back guarantee if you're hesitant to take the plunge.

"Not sure how I managed without a cast iron skillet for so long. The skillet is perfect and I've used it several times since purchase. The silicone handle and lid are perfect accessories to the skillet," wrote one Amazon reviewer.

"A really great cast iron fry pan. I did preseason mine, just an individual choice. The first thing I cooked in it were zucchini pancakes which I often make. They browned and crisped perfectly, better than ever before. Both the [glass lid] and silicone handle cover are the perfect accessories," wrote another on Amazon.
