Anyone else use a Cast Iron Skillet?

We've had one the last 5 years and love it. I grew up using non-stick cookware-that you'd have to replace every couple of years. I really think that eggs, bacon and such taste better cooked on the iron skillet, not to mention that unless you're careless, the iron skillet will last forever!

Cast iron skillets are great, My wife has one that my Aunt gave her 20 years ago. That skillet must be 50 years old by now and we still use it. But be warned, a cast iron skillet can also be used to go up side your head if the wife gets pissed at you.

We go fishing up in Saskatchewan, Canada every year in late May early June.
All our shore lunches are made using cast iron skillets.
Nothing better…plain & simple is the way to cook.

I use one every day to cook my bacon & eggs breakfast. They taste best on it. Washing it is a challenge, I use cooking oil to dress it up and store it.

Bacon and Eggs do indeed taste better on the iron! Now that my skillet is more "seasoned" washing is a breeze. I just rinse with water and occasionally use a brush, usually when frying up ground beef. There really is no comparison between iron and non stick. As part of my morning routine, I turn the stove on to get the skillet preheated while I shower. When I'm done I throw the eggs and bacon on, and they cook quicker. I wouldn't dream of preheating a non stick to the same degree as iron.

^ That's the thing...you're not supposed to clean them really well. That's the "seasoning" that makes everything you cook taste so good.

I have to make more use of mine...
