My Cast Iron Skillet

When I got married, we received non-stick pans as wedding presents. So those were the pans I used. When those died, I just replaced them with more non-stick pans.

I vaguely remember my Grandmother & a couple of aunts using cast iron skillets, but my mother never did.

I finally bought a couple about 3 years ago. I wish I had bought them much, much sooner!

I love the way cast iron cooks! It retains the heat, and it cooks evenly. No more half brown half white pancakes.

Since we like to cook outside over the fire a lot, cast iron skillets are the perfect pans for us. We can use them outside over the fire. You can’t do that with other kitchen pans!

We’ve even done breakfast outside over the fire!

I have a large 12 inch skillet, and a smaller one, both made by Lodge. I love them both. Next on my list to get is a cast iron griddle. That sure would make it easier to cook enough pancakes for this crew!

My OpenSky shop opened this week, and I have a Lodge cast iron skillet there. So if your in the market for a new cast iron skillet, check it out! Until August 16, you can get free shipping on any purchase when you use code FREESHIPPING  Since cast iron skillets are heavy, free shipping is a great deal!
