Question: Where is this product made?

Question: Does this skillet come with a lid?
Question: I have a glass top stove, can I still use cast iron?
Answer: Yes, I have a ceramic cook top and I use the waxy cleaner that polishes and helps prevent scratching and I’m careful to pick up and set down when I need to move the cast iron ware. If you slide it around, you’ll scratch up the glass surface. I’ve been using the cast iron for the whole 3 years I’ve had the cook top and it still looks new.
