I asked for a cast iron skillet when I was in my early 20s. I’m not even sure why I wanted it, now – I just know I’d read about cast iron, and it seemed like a romantic and wholesome way to cook my food.
Have you ever tried cooking with a cast iron skillet? Was it well seasoned, or did the food stick?
Do you know what’s so special about cast iron as opposed to other materials, for cooking? What qualities are most important to you in cookware? Ease of cleaning? How quickly the material heats up? How long it keeps its warmth..?
