Cast Iron Cooking Can Save Money


A clean cast iron frying pan.Pretty sets of cookware are tempting, but pretty wears off with the enamel or Teflon. Cast iron lasts a lifetime if properly cared for. It cooks evenly, predictably and they're the only few pieces of cookware you'll ever need. Keep it away from the dishwasher and soap, season it (simple process) regularly and enjoy never tossing another skillet!

Second this. I was given an expensive All-Clad pan as a gift, and much prefer my cast iron.

It used to be that you couldn't use soap on cast iron because it contained lye. Lye removed the seasoning. Today the dish soap - such as Dawn does not contain lye, so it's safe to use it on greasy pans and skillets. I do it all the time with no loss of seasoning at all.


If cast iron is properly seasoned, dish soap will not affect the seasoning. I have used cast iron for years and absolutely love it. Also, check the many cast iron sites on Facebook. If you want to learn more on the care of cast iron, check them out. Also TONS of recipes too.

I agree with LeeAnne67. I'm 66 yrs old and have never had to re-season my Mom's cast iron skillets. I've used and washed her skillets since I was a teenager. I wash them with liquid dish soap and hand dry them, and never let them air dry, as this causes rust spots. If I'm making several skillets of cornbread, I just wipe the skillet out with a paper towel and make the next pan of cornbread.
