If I recall correctly my grandmother's skillet was about 9 or 10 inches across. I've just never heard the term "cast iron pan" before, regardless of the definition of "pan" or "skillet". The big black iron thing in which we cooked and was seasoned was a skillet. I still remember when my grandmother bought a new one to supplement the older one's cooking duties. She made us build a big fire and toss the new one in and burn it. IIRC after the fire she coated it with an oil and put it away. And heaven help you if you ever made the mistake of thoroughly cleaning it, as I did.
