I’m a cast iron evangelist. If there’s anything you have to cook, chances are cast iron can do it better, with more flavor and a less clean up than any of the alternatives. One of the things I am most proud of in this life is my robust collection of cast iron kitchen tools. And with every birthday, Christmas and housewarming, I aim to aid my friends and family in the building of their own collections. And that’s what I hope to do for you here.
For Amazon Prime Day only, you can get this 4-piece cast iron set from American cast iron manufacturing powerhouse, Lodge for only $70. Everything in the set comes pre-seasoned, which means ready to use. This set includes a 10.25-inch skillet, a 10.5-inch round griddle, a 5 quart dutch oven and a dutch oven lid that doubles as a lid for the skillet as well.
With this set, you can make stews, frittata, restaurant quality steaks and so much more with the added bonus of upping your iron intake just by cooking in this amazing solid-metal cookware. Unlike comparable non-stick cookware made from ceramic or teflon, as long as you remember to regularly season, clean off burnt on food with a damp towel and never leave your cast iron with a puddle of water on it, your cast iron will last you a lifetime and then some.
Good cast iron is so life changing that it has been among the ranks of things that the dead and dying have had to have the forethought as to who to will these amazing tools to. Good cast iron only needs an even coating of vegetable oil every once in a while to become great cast iron, and when it comes to Lodge, the same family has been making these solid cast iron kitchen tools for over 120 years.
