Cast Iron cookware can easily be a part of your cooking legacy or a treasured family heirloom, if you have the right knowledge to choose the right cookware.
A solid, naturally non-stick and completely toxin-free cast iron skillet (please link it) is one thing that every chef and every home-maker needs. It’s indestructible (can’t virtually break; unless you ham it hard), is versatile (goes from stovetop to oven to serving table without a hitch) and is meant to last for ages (just a little care is needed for its long culinary journey). Therefore, you need to be wise, well-informed and prudent while choosing your cast iron cookware. Who knows the skillet you purchase today might land in the kitchen of your grandchild!
So, when you are purchasing cast iron cookware, the one thing that is mandatory to check is its seasoning. Because seasoning is the thing that makes it so good. When a cookware is exposed to high heat, long chains of fat molecules break down into short-chain polymers that bond with naturally produced carbon and bare iron, forming a kind of glaze. This is seasoning, and it has smooth, non-stick properties similar to Teflon, but without any harmful properties associated with Teflon.
