Cast iron is your best friend

cast iron skilletIf you’re considering getting cast iron cookware, read @1800 Culinary Team Member David Hayes’ favorite way to season his skillet.

Cast iron pans and skillets can take abuse and, with a little love, they are ready for more. The nonstick properties of cast iron and its stovetop to oven potential is something that can make your kitchen almost as good as a professional one.

My personal favorite thing to do when seasoning my pan is to cook bacon and leave the drippings in the pan overnight. The next morning for breakfast, I wipe out the pan and fry up whatever I want (which will taste ever so subtly of bacon).
