Cast iron skillets and cookware can add amazing flavor to your meals. They have many advantages, cook beautifully, and properly cared for they will last you a lifetime. The heat in cast iron is evenly distributed, and retained longer than lighter materials because there is a greater volume or mass to heat and cool. My favorite feature is that they can be used in the oven as well as the stove top. If properly seasoned and cared for, cast iron pans, skillets, and cookware will be as nonstick as teflon cookware.
