Many people are turning to cast iron over all other cookware right now and it’s easy to see why. From the even heat and easy cleaning to its versatility, there’s not much cast iron can’t do in the kitchen.
We have created a list of reasons you should be choosing to switch over to cast iron.
Cast Iron Skillets Heat Evenly
Cast iron is a very dense metal which means it’s very good at retaining heat (it’s also impervious to damage). Even heating means that meats brown better and vegetables cook faster without having to rotate pans in the oven. Cast iron is ideal for frying and baking because it holds and distributes heat so well. Once heated, cast iron will hold that heat for a long time.
Stove-Top & Oven Compatible
Many dishes rely on stovetop heat, such as pasta dishes as an example and we all know how many amazing meals can be cooked in the oven. Cast iron gives the best of both.
Brown chicken in the skillet on the stovetop, then add onions, potatoes and carrots to the skillet, place the whole thing in a warm oven and you’ve got a complete meal from one pan. You can sear, roast, and even simmer in a cast iron skillet. Not all pans can claim that. For more information on this recipe visit this link: How To Cook The Perfect Chicken.
We have many skillets to choose from in our kitchen range.
Cast Iron Is Naturally Nonstick
Cast iron has a naturally nonstick surface which only improves as it ages. Few nonstick pans can go safely from the stovetop to the oven. Because cast iron is naturally nonstick, it is also easy to clean.
Cast Iron Is Easy To Clean
Cast iron is unique that it actually gets better when you use it more. Regular use and cleaning of a cast iron skillet improves the “seasoning” (a thin layer of fat that seals the iron) that makes it nonstick.
Cast iron can do many jobs in the kitchen. You can use a skillet to replace a roasting pan, to make pizza on the stove top and to simmer something on very low heat. On the stove top and in the oven as mentioned before too, they also look great to serve to your guests.
Investing in just a few pieces of cast iron can help cut down on the clutter too.
