How To Season, Clean & Prepare Cast Iron Cookware

Cast Iron is the best cookware ever. It cooks evenly, retains heat well, and can be more non stick than non stick ware.

Once you begin making up your own set of cast iron cookware, and get it seasoned properly. You wan't want to use anything else.

Electricity goes off no problem use it in your firepit, or on your grill. Camp fires don't hurt cast iron either. You can even use the frying pans or dutch oven to bake cakes, or deep dish pies.

Needless to say I love my traditional cast iron.

You can get cast iron with a coating on it, but it's very expensive, and I can't see the sense in spending money on the fancy when a little time and patience will give you a very nice non stick pot or pan.

I've bought cast iron at flea markets, yard sales, estate sales, and brand new.

The stuff you can get at flea markets and estate sales are generally really good if the pans nave been taken care of because they've usually been seasoned very well.

Pre seasoned is great, but it's still doesn't have that non stick finish yet. That takes a little time, and some patience. It doesn't happen over night.
