The Best Steaks I Ever Cooked Have Been With A Cast Iron Skillet
Cast iron is a very dense metal, making it nearly impervious to damage and the king of holding on to heat. Even heating means that meats brown better and vegetables cook faster without having to constantly manage the heat source or rotate pans in the oven. Cast iron is ideal for frying and baking because it holds and distributes heat so well. The same cannot be said of your favorite pasta pot or baking sheet.
Cast-iron is super versatile, affordable and lasts a lifetime or two if you care for it properly.
