Default Newbie- Please Help with Cast Iron Recommendations

Hi All,

I am so thankful for finding this forum. I've looked everywhere for help/recommendations and there just isn't a lot of unbiased places to learn about cast iron skillets online. If I've posted in the wrong section, sorry in advance.

The only cast iron I have ever used was a Lodge but I'm ready to step my game up and cook with something better all around. I've looked at Smithey, Stargazer and Field. Being that I know so little about the differences except for say one has a longer handle while the other has a pour spout, I wanted to see what the community thinks in terms of which direction I should go.

I want to be under/around $200. Looking for a 12" skillet. Mostly what I'll be using it for is searing meats (chicken, hamburgers, steaks, etc.) and putting the skillet in the oven to do the rest. I want to also cook eggs/omelets as well.

Any and all feedback on which direction I should go, maybe if there is another brand I should check out, etc. Anything to help me make a choice. I'm sure that they are all good but just trying to do some due diligence before purchase.
