Cooking With Cast Iron Cookware
Old fashioned cookware that lasts virtually forever.
The flavors that come out of using this metal for cooking is unreal, and over time, will only get better. I have been cooking like this for longer than I can remember, and let me tell you, that I will NEVER go back to anything else!!
I love the ease of cooking with a perfectly seasoned Cast Iron skillet, and the mouth watering flavors that my food incorporate from being cooked on one as well.
They help prevent burning with the thickness of the base and because they distribute heat more evenly throughout. Believe it or not, cast iron becomes non stick if taken care of properly.
The great thing about using cast iron compared to Teflon non stick pans, is that cast iron skillets contain NO chemicals like PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene), and everyone knows that keeping away from exposing ourselves to chemicals is usually a good thing.
Another great asset to cooking with cast iron is written within the name itself... That's right, IRON. Did you realize that every time you cook with cast iron you get that marvelous mineral that your body needs in your diet? Some need more iron than others; for instance, the majority of women need more iron intake.
It is always best to ingest our vitamins and minerals in the most natural way possible, without having to take supplements, and this is a way to incorporate iron into our diets without even thinking about it. By cooking healthier, your body will stay healthier.
Cast iron frying pans can naturally season themselves over time.
Pots, pans, and kettles.
I love cooking with my cast iron pans and would never trade them for any other cooking surface in the kitchen, and if you are anything like me, you love yours just as much.
I cook everything from eggs for breakfast, to sauteed onions and mushrooms to top off the perfect dinner.
