Cooking with cast iron pans is the best! For years I had a glass cooktop and though I’v heard you can still carefully use them, I was afraid of damaging the glass top so I packed them away. Boy did I miss those skillets! We now have an older gas stove and I don’t care because I now use my cast iron pans ever day! If you don’t have one, I highly recommend getting one!
Here are some TIPs to care for them:
First, if your pan is new, you must season it. This is easily done by lightly coating the pan in some cooking oil, using a paper towel. Bake it in your oven for about an hour at 350deg. Allow to cool, then you’ll be good to go!
Never put your cast iron in the dishwasher and do not leave it wet or it will rust!
Cast iron pans retain heat very well and the handle can burn you if not careful. Most kitchen stores will sell them. Here is an example I found on Amazon.
