WIll any cast iron do?

I just bought a Well equipped cook cast iron frying pan, never heard of this brand before. Asked the Home Sense store folks if it was 100% cast iron & they said yes. BUt when I got home I could see the surface was uneven.
Now I want to return it & get this http://www.canadiantire.ca/AST/browse/8/KitchenBath/1/Cookware/PotsFrypans/PRD~0428590P/KitchenAid+Cast-Iron+Skillet%2C+10-in.jsp?locale=en Is the kitchen aid brand good.
I also need to get a round cast griddle for crepes(indian style called dosa)..and these are very hard to find in regular stores. appreciate any suggestions for both fry pan & skillet as well as care ideas.. thanks a lot!
