Every seasoned home cook understands the importance of having a reliable cast iron skillet and a great frying pan in their collection of cookware and baking supplies. It won't take you long if you're just beginning to cook to realise that this piece of culinary equipment is unequalled in terms of adaptability, toughness, and functionality. But some even use them interchangeably. Is that right? Can you use a skillet instead of a frypan?
While some individuals consider the two to be interchangeable, others believe there are some differences between the two. While skillets resemble frying pans with a large round bottom and high, curved edges that make it deeper, frying pans have a flat, wide base and round, flared sides. Due to the fact that skillets frequently weigh more than frying pans, some of them have two handles, one of which is the main, long handle.
However, if you have Meyer Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron 22cm Frypan/Skillet you can certainly use one cookware instead of two. This cast iron cookware is adept at frying eggs, sautéing veggies, or just adding tadka to any dish. Its all-purpose design makes it a wonderful addition to your kitchen and cookware collection.
And this incredible cast iron cookware goes far beyond making basic meals to making delicious appetisers, desserts, main courses, and much more.
What can you cook in a Meyer Pre-Seasoned Cast Iron 22cm Frypan/Skillet?
Cast iron skillet is great for browning:
A cast iron skillet has a lot to offer, not the least of which is the fact that it heats up quickly and stays hot. It stays consistently and evenly heated, unlike other cooking equipment, giving anything you're cooking a deep brown colour and crunchy crust. However, you should thoroughly pre-heat your cookware so that it has time to absorb the heat if you want to get the most out of it. Cast iron is also oven-safe, so you can simply transfer your dish from the burner to the oven for a delectable finish.
Cast iron skillet is great for stir-fries:
As cast iron cookware has an extraordinary capacity to retain heat, stir-fries may be made in a short amount of time, crisping the rice and vegetables while preserving some of its crunch.

This cookware is designed to roast your meat and vegetables to perfection. The pan is heat-resistant, and direct contact with an extremely hot surface is what gives your dish its enviable browning.
