I was raised on cast iron cooking Ernie. You're right, the taste is exceptional.

I love cast iron. I've got two pans and a cast iron dutch oven. Most of the time I just use my stainless steel, though. Now 67% friendlier!

A little known fact...

If you are anemic, eating food cooked in a cast iron pan will also help raise your iron levels.

My mom and mamaw always cooked with cast iron. My wife fixed cornbread the other night in the skillet and man did it bring back memories. We also bought a 8 qt pot that we're going to fix soupbeans in. Wished we done this years ago. Acts Enthusiast

Most foks my ge were raised on most food cooked in cast iron. My wife would never cook corn bread in anything else.
Now the funniest thing I can remember my best friend Sonny did was 'clean' his wife's cast Iron!
He had a new 'sand blaster' and was itching to try it out. So into the house bringing ALL the old black cast iron out. When he got thru it looked like NEW! WRONG... CAST IRON IS NEVER SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE NEW. His wife was upset for months. LOL
True sad story.

You just have to coat it with oil and bake it in the oven for so long and it's as 'good as old' again. Just don't put it in the dishwasher, especially untreated. I've had to tell my kids not to do that. If they do, you have to treat them before they rust.

So seasoned that there are no bumps in the bottom of the pan.

Just telling my son yesterday that the best hamburgers I ever had were the ones my grandmother cooked in her cast iron skillet!

Cornbread for sure. We cook steaks in ours and of course fried potatoes with onions. I have probably at least 4 - 2 big ones for those potatoes.
One thing i do not cook in them is fried chicken. Probably my fault but it never seems to come out right. I use my electric skillet for fried chicken Always turns out good in it.

I was thinking of frying fish in the skillet. If I do, will the skillet have a fish taste in the food I fry in it afterwards?

I haven't noticed a smell when I reuse it. I always hand wash mine in hot soapy water and dry it good and rub it down with shortening. Just my way. Some people will not use soap at all but hasn't hurt mine.

My husband got a great deal on our last cast iron skillet. He got it a thrift shop for $5. It was a Wagoner probably a 10 inch size. Somebody didn't know the value when they priced it. A blessing from the Lord!! I always check the bottom for Wagoner, Lodge or Griswald. I don't buy the Tiawian stuff.

I've heard of people not ever washing a skillet. Soap and water doesn't seem to hurt it. The dishwasher will take the 'cure' off of it and they rust quickly if you do that. You have to rub oil all over it again and bake it at a certain temperature for so long to get the black layer back on there. I greased one down and left it in the oven for a while so it would get baked with other stuff after one of the kids put it in the dishwasher.

I thought about curing some tools like that, but if they have rubber handles, that's not going to work. Maybe I ought to do that with some Model-T pliers and see how it goes.
