pour spout on the wrong side of the skillet?
while looking up a skillet recommendation, i noticed the pour spout of this skillet is on the right side, as one holds it. http://www.target.com/Lodge-12-Pre-Se...
if one is right handed, that means you pour away from the body, holding the helper handle? is it unwieldy but safer, since you'd be forced to pour away from the body? i'd like the pour spout on the left side; it seems more natural (imo) to hold and pour that way, as a right-hander.
am i foolish to want the spout so it pours toward me (and i can see into the skillet's interior)?
It's just an artifact of how the photo was taken. If you look carefully, you'll see there's a pour spout on the other side as well. (But I agree, if there was only one, as a rightie I'd want it on the left side.)
ETA: I know the description refers to a single spout, but if you look at the same photo on the Lodge site the second spout is more obvious.
You are much more likely to splatter something hot on yourself when you pour toward your body. It is actually safer to pour away.
