Cast iron cooking is not a trend. It’s a way of life! Cast iron pots and pans have been used for centuries and have been treasured for their durability and their capacity to retain heat, thus improving the quality of cooked food. Cast iron cookware became more desirable during the first half of the 20th century. However, it fell temporarily out of favor in the 1960s and 1970s, as Teflon-coated cookware was introduced and became standard in many kitchens.
Nevertheless, the durability and reliability of cast iron as a cooking tool has ensured its survival, and nowadays most cooks and chefs around the world use and recommend cast iron cookware. Cast iron productshave the unique ability of maintaining even temperature cooking for all kinds of dishes. Moreover, this product can be used on all types of heat sources – gas, electric, induction, oven, ceramic, or over an open fire.Cast iron products cannot be used in microwaves.
