This has been a big topic of conversation at my house this week.  Being the frugal girl that I am, we have one skillet, it is a cast iron skillet.  I refuse to buy or use any Teflon.  They flake and then you eat it and I am not on board with eating more chemicals. 

We have had a problem with the cast iron skillet.   The hubs and I each make eggs most mornings, this darn skillet has made this difficult.  It appears to be “seasoned” then suddenly the next batch of eggs stick to it.  This is frustration.  I have cooked bacon in it then put in the oven at 350 for an hour and then left it there to cool.  Still have issues.  Did I buy a cheap pan?  Is there a solution?  I did find one answer on the “net that said you need to always reapply oil to the pan to re-season it after cooking.  Really?  Anyone have any ideas?

Our idea was to buy a new pan. Gotta love Amazon  especially with Prime. 


WearEver Pure Living Nonstick Ceramic Coating PTFE-PFOA-Cadmium Free Dishwasher Safe Saute Pan/Fry Pan Cookware, Champagne Gold



I ordered it on Thursday and it arrived on Saturday, that is service.

After many hours of researching new non-stick pans we arrived at the ceramic coating.  This week will be the testing period to see how non-stick it stays.

If this pan works well there may be more purchases of it in the future.  Just remember I am frugal.

Do you use cast iron?  How do you season it?  What other cookware do you use?
