Cast-iron is one of the oldest material used for cookware. In recent decades, lightweight pans with synthetic coatings have received more and more attention while knowledge of the advantages of cast-iron skillets has faded into the background. With a growing focus on flavour intensity, health and sustainability, cast-iron is experiencing a renaissance among adventurers – outdoors and at home. Cast-iron has a natural coating which improves with each use and will last a lifetime if properly cared for.
What is a cast-iron skillet?
Cast-iron skillets are casted from iron. A cast-iron skillet does not need any synthetic coating and is both a classic and traditional piece of cookware. Cast-iron skillets allow frying at high temperatures, making them particularly suitable for searing and braising meat.
Anyone who knows the true value of a cast-iron skillet will never want to miss the unique taste of food fried in these special pans.
What makes a cast-iron skillet so good?
Many amateur and professional chefs who have discovered cast-iron as the ideal material for their pans appreciate the incomparable frying experience and would never want to do without their cast- iron skillets again.
Why is that? Cast-iron is made for particularly high temperatures and retains heat for a long time, allowing you, for example, to reheat meat after roasting without adding another heat source. In addition, the natural flavour of the food prepared in cast-iron skillets is optimally preserved. This makes food taste much more intense, which is also generally referred to as its characteristic flavour. Its versatility too makes the cast-iron skillet so unique: It can be used not only for roasting and braising but also for baking pies, tarts and cakes.
Over time, the quality of a cast-iron skillets increases because the patina that forms by itself protects the skillet and makes it more durable. You can use cast-iron skillets everywhere: in the oven, on any type of cooker and over an open fire. If you take good care of it, the pan will serve you for ages.
