    Cast iron cookware

    I like using cast iron cookware. Skillets, roasters and griddles. I know in this day and age of Teflon coatings and lightweight stainless or aluminum cookware cast iron is somewhat of an anachronism.

    Am I alone in the use of cast iron? or are there possibly one or more cast iron holdouts left in the world? hehehe

    I think it is the best cookware going, Other than being heavy and needing seasoning every once in a while, it takes less heat and heats more evenly.

    Maybe it's the smell of warm olive oil while seasoning the pans or that I'm not ready to give up my old and comfortable ways of cooking. What ever the case is, I do love to cook with cast iron.

    What are your thoughts on cast iron?

    All we use is cast iron, I was on a bit of a buying spree last year purchasing old cast iron from garage sales and second hand shops, they are getting harder and harder to find, it's catching on! I found a cast iron tea kettle for $20, then seen another on kijiji for $120.....I got a sweet deal I'd say! Some of the stuff was rusted to hell, I used a wire grinder and got the rust out, then gave em a good bath in some olive oil, and kept oiling and heating till the oil came out clean, oiled once more and salted, good to go! now We have a good set for the kitchen and a second set for the camping gear!

    Over 10 years ago I spent a bunch of money what we thought was a great set of "chef's" cookware. Ever since, I have been spending a bunch of money replacing all of it with cast iron. I am pretty sure that I, singlehandedly, paid for the college educations of the kids for most of the employees at Lodge.

    When we went to TN a fair amount, we always stopped at the Lodge outlet store. For some reason we never left empty handed :-o

    Cast iron is in the Kitchen. Nothing like it for some things like corn bread.

    Have you ever done chili in a dutch oven with the corn bread cooking on top of the chilli?
