Why is cast iron so popular in homestead kitchens? The Best Cast Iron Cookware is popular because it’s durable, enriches food with iron, and because you can use it on a stovetop, in an oven, and even over a campfire!

Seriously, how could you not LOVE cooking in cast iron? A well-seasoned cast iron pan is naturally non-stick, it’s pretty easy to care for, and should last for a LONG time. Not to mention food just seems to taste better in cast iron!

There are several great brands out there that can rival the quality of Lodge, but usually not the price. Lodge overall is the best quality and price and it’s the brand I recommend.

Why Cook With Cast Iron?

Cast iron pans can be used for almost every kind of cooking there is. From frying to baking, and even cooking over a fire…These pans can do it all!

When these pans are properly seasoned, there’s no need to worry about the food sticking to the pan. The seasoning provides a natural non-stick coating, that shouldn’t hurt or harm people…Unlike the rumors about Teflon we keep hearing!

A downside to using cast iron is that is it super heavy. But it is very tough material and will last ages!

Here are a few fast facts about why you should use cast iron pans!

  • Built to last! These pans can last you a lifetime if you take care of them…
  • It might take a while for cast iron to heat up but it stays warm for a long time…So when you go back for a 2nd plate it’s still warm!
  • Seasoning gets better every time you use cast iron! As long as you don’t wash them with soap…That would wash off some seasoning…
  • Iron! Of course, a little bit of iron makes its way into your food when you cook with these pans.

Enameled Cast Iron

Enameled cast iron is typically an indoor cookware, meaning you shouldn't use it to cook on a campfire. An open flame could cause the enamel to soften and get damaged. Ruining your pan.
