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.

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?
