I’ve cooked a couple of things in the new skillet, but this afternoon was the best as I cooked some hash browns and they were perfect. Perfectly crisp, evenly browned. Clean-up a breeze. I have to tell you, this skillet, this simple, old-fashioned cast iron wonder, is on its way to becoming my most-est favorite cooking item in the cupboard.
I had been using Scanpans, which were a gift, and which I’ve come to loathe over the 15 years I’ve had them. They pit, chip and peel – and they were not cheap. I started replacing them, since they came with a life-time guarantee, but gave up after the 3rd frying pan. They don’t heat evenly and are terrible to clean, even the saucepans.
By comparison, my $13 cast iron skillet is a marvel. This might be love.
