anyone here cook on cast iron?

Recommended Posts

I exclusively cook on cast iron now for about 2 years. I stopped in ace hardware one day and saw the lodge skillets on display so I bought a small one. haven't looked back since. my mother in law also gave me her mothers cast iron from the 30s. its amazing how something that old is still like it was the day she cooked on them. cast iron is the ultimate non stick cooking surface as long as you take good care of them. they require more maintenance then other skillets but I don't mind it.

I do but not exclusively and I agree, great nonstick. Try browning your chicken with something heavy on top of the chicken. You will get the most crispy chicken on the planet.

I find food has a better taste, with more even cooking. There is some literature suggesting that cast iron has health benefits.

Personally, I don't cook, ever, nothing, nada... hell, I'm not even allowed unsupervised into the kitchen.

I bought lots of the cast Iron Pots for the Mrs through the years, she loves them. Uses them every day.

I highly recommend them, they last forever.:up:

I use to exclusively use a cast iron skillet that I pulled from a customers attic and reseasoned. But recently I discovered carbon steel pans from Lodge! They heat much more evenly with hardly any hotspots like cast iron and have the same if not better nonstick capability (my first cook out of the box was scrambled eggs and they never stuck even a little and every cook since has been a pleasure). 

 

 The one thing I'll say is better about the cast iron skillet was the look, it stays a nice even black whereas the carbon steel has color variations from the heat. I too love the thought of using my antique cast iron but my new pans just plain out perform and now it's all I cook on!

I love cast iron pots, skillets.  I would use them exclusively except the wife thinks they're too heavy so she uses one non-stick skillet for light cooking.  All the major meals are done on the cast iron.
