This Might Be the Only Kitchen Pan You'll Ever Need
We think you really need a cast iron skillet!
Traditionally made of molten iron, cast iron pans are highly durable and last for years! They heat up quickly and maintain their temperature, making them perfect for baking and nonstick frying. These heavy-duty pans can also go straight from the oven to your tabletop, and keep your food warm while on the table.
How to clean them? Simply wash it with a sponge under warm running water; skip the soap and steel brushes as these strip the skillet of its seasoning. To deal with stubborn residue, boil water in the pan to loosen it, or scrub the pan with some salt and water. Before storing, remember to dry it well and wipe it down with a paper towel moistened with a few drops of vegetable oil.
