I have been cooking in Cast Iron Skillets for years....just no other way to make your food absorb all the flavors and you get a bonus..."iron", yes the food you cook in cast iron does absorb iron which is good for you. I have 2 sets of cast iron skillets, a cast iron fryer (I use when cooking large amount of stir fry), a cast iron dutch oven and some extra cast iron pieces. I would love to have some cast iron pots and a cast iron biscuit pan, maybe I should ask for them for Christmas next year, or maybe my Birthday. I cooked deer tenderloin with brown gravy and fried cornbread the other night in my cast iron, added some left over green beans and a baked potato.....my kind of meal.
This is my favorite gravy stir thingy (had it for years) and can not find another one like it, I just hope it never breaks!
