Worth It’s Weight In Gold? Maybe Cast Iron!
Have you ever stood in a gourmet cookware store and marveled at the sheer number of options that the everyday cook has? Gone are the days when the best cookware was available only to professionals. The sheer number of choices can be overwhelming. While food culture in this country has grown with neck-breaking speed over the last two decades, the basic foundations and principles of good cooking and good food remain the same. Use the best ingredients you can afford, and prepare them with the best equipment you can get.
Allow us to introduce you to the latter. This is the covered casserole from Lodge Cast Iron Cookware. This beautiful pan is so basic and simple in its design, and so effective at what it’s intended to do. Made from cast iron, with riveted stainless steel handles it will make your kitchen a bit more chic by just being there. This pan shows up to the party well-seasoned, and those sleek handles? They stay cool to the touch, even over high heat. A seasoned cast-iron pan is the grandfather of non-stick cookware. With a minimum amount of maintenance this pan will provide you with a lifetime of even heat distribution and a wonderful non-stick surface. This substantial and durable pan goes from open flame on a stove top directly to a very hot oven without missing a beat. This pan handles large pieces of meat, as well as stews or casseroles (as the name might suggest.) If you’ve never cooked with cast iron, we encourage you to give it a try. It’s well worth the weight in gold!
This pan can be purchased online directly from Lodge for $129.
