Cooking with cast-iron is great. A well-seasoned pan is just as slippery as its non-stick counterpart. It heats evenly, can go in the oven, can be used at high temperatures, increases the iron content of our food, and has a very, very long lifetime. And while high-end cast-iron cookware costs a pretty penny, a basic cast-iron frying pan is very inexpensive.
I knew I was sick of Teflon, and sometime Stainless Steel cookware can get pricey... time to start our own cast-iron tradition!
