Cast iron pans have many health benefits, they also have many health benefits. Read this ultimate guide to using and caring for Cast Iron Pans!
Cast Iron pots and pans are some of the most important items in the kitchen. Here are some tips and tricks to help you improve your cast iron cooking:
Use a bit more cooking fat when cooking with cast iron especially if you are using a new pan. It doesn’t make your food greasy because the pan is soaking it up. This really helps to prevent stuff from sticking.
Use a larger pan than you think you need. Cast iron gets a great sear on stuff, and you don’t want to have any of your food miss out on it by being piled too high in the pan. This also helps prevent sticking.
Once it does heat up, cast iron heats very well, and evenly, so you will rarely need to turn it up high. Most things will never need to be cooked higher than a medium temperature on your stove-top. Adjust your usual cooking temps to a bit lower for cast iron.
