All About Cast Iron Skillets

My father always used cast iron for cooking. That’s right, my father taught me what true culinary delight was, and that is: There’s no better frying pan than one made from cast iron, period!

Created hundreds of years ago, it’s still one of the safest materials for making frying pans and other cookware.

Why buy a Cast Iron Skillet?

Unlike artificially coated cookware, cast iron does not produce dangerous fumes during preheating, nor will the pre-seasoning flake off like other synthetically treated cookware.

Since the cast iron holds the heat longer, it’s easy to deliver your still sizzling meals to the table and your meals will stay hot longer in cast iron rather than conventional pans made from light-weight metals.

Lodge uses a soy-based vegetable oil treatment, not animal fat or peanut oil, which is baked into your cookware. They also make some of the best and economical cast iron skillets.

How to use your Cast Iron Skillet

Place the pan on the burner and gradually increase heat. Avoid cooking frozen or anything fresh out of the refrigerator to keep it from sticking. Your cast iron cookware can even be used on an induction heater, but don’t slide the pan on a glass top or you may scratch the surface.
