Lodge Cast Iron has created what it says is the world’s largest cast-iron skillet.

The frying pan is more than 18 feet long from handle to handle and weighs 14,360 pounds, WZTV reported.

The overly large pan was cast to be a feature at the new Lodge Cast Iron Museum that is expected to open later this year.

The museum will take a look at the history of the iconic cookware and it will show visitors how they are made.

The attraction will also share the stories of cast-iron collections and the food that’s made in them.

Lodge has been making the cookware since 1896 in family-owned foundries in South Pittsburg, Tennessee, WZTV reported.

Some on social media responded to the images of the pan strapped down to the tractor-trailer with comments saying they would do the one thing no one should ever do with a seasoned cast-iron piece — put it in the dishwasher, Mashable reported.

Some even had fun with puns.
