Cast-iron skillets are the holy grail of cookware, and I am going to tell you why. As always, safety first. Cast-iron skillets are naturally non-stick (when well-seasoned), so you an avoid the potentially harmful chemicals released when using a typical non-stick skillet.
In addition to safety, here are some reasons you may want to bring a cast-iron skillet into your kitchen:
- The sturdiness of the cast-iron material holds on to heat, making the pan heat more evenly.
- You can move them from stove into the oven, making it a great help for cooking meats and fish.
- Since they are naturally non-stick, they are easy to clean.
- They’re also perfect for one-pan meals, like a personal pizza, an egg skillet, or meat and veggies.
Take a leap, and join the cast-iron crew. I promise you won’t regret it.
