Cast Iron Skillet – The Only Pan You’ll Ever Need

A cast iron skillet may not be the only pan you need in your kitchen, but I will make a case for a 12″ cast iron skillet being the most useful piece of cookware you can own.

The obvious use of a cast fry pan is for frying stuff. A cast iron frying pan does an excellent job of preparing steaks, pork chops, fried chicken, and anything else that you would use a stainless steel or aluminum skillet for. Properly seasoned, a cast iron frying pan can also cook eggs and other sticky dishes that you might think you need a non-stick pan for.
