Cast Iron Skillets are the mainstay for many kitchens both indoors and out. This is a must have whether you collect or cook and make multitasking cookware a snap. Frying, baking, and broiling are all handled well with these durable skillets. Start on the stove top finish in the oven. No plastic handles to melt, no cheap screws or rivets to loosen guarantees that this cookware will last forever. You can check out our selection of skillets here.
Next to the skillet, Cast iron Dutch ovens are the most versatile addition to a collection of Cast Iron Cookware. This is the original convection oven cooking anything at even temperatures. People spend thousands on commercial convection ovens to compensate for crappy cookware. Main dishes, casseroles, desserts all come out perfect in a cast iron dutch oven in the oven or on the stove top. We have some suggestions here.
While Skillets are great for preparing one up dishes, nothing beats a great griddle for cooking multiple items at one time. A cast iron griddle works great on the stove top, and you can tuck it into camping supplies for cooking outdoors. This is a great addition for those of us with conventional stoves without a built in grill. Reversible’s give an added flexibility to flip it over and add those great grill marks to your favorite steaks. 2-4 minutes on a side, then directly into a 350 oven to finish. Perfect! Here’s our selection of the best!

COOKING IN CAST IRON
Cooking in cast iron cookware presents a few challenges for people used to traditional cookware. Weight, cleaning, and seasoning the pans tends to put people off using these great cooking vessels. Cooking time is also a consideration as cast iron heats more evenly and it’s easy to overcook a dish or a roast. So why would anyone even consider a cast iron pan? The answer is simple. Quality. For the same reason one might consider a convection oven for uniform heat and cooking time the same is true for owning a cast iron pot. Nothing else compares.
Here’s a Sample of Our Favorites Dishes
This was adapted from the Dean and Deluca cookbook by David Rosengarten. By all means different than what you’d expect french onion soup to be, it’s rich, flavorful and works well served in these little cast iron cauldrons from Lodge.
When it comes to homestyle cooking the Amish are hard to beat. This is a great Sunday sit down dinner, slow cooked on the stovetop. The inspiration for this came from the Chateau Restaurant in Millersburg, OH and has been a favorite for years. Mrs. Miller’s Amish style noodles are a must for this dish.
Another one of our favorites for those cold rainy days when nothing but hot soup will do. Easily prepared and served up with warm bread, cheese slices, and apple wedges it makes for a great “peasant” dinner. A glass of your favorite wine isn’t a bad idea either.
