In some cooking circles, cast iron gets a bad rep – people think it’s old-fashioned, heavy, and hard to take care of. And really, how often do folks nowadays need to hitch up a mule and wagon and leave civilization and Teflon-coated sauté pans behind?

True, cast iron is old; it’s been around since the Middle Ages. And it is heavy. No one can dispute that even a small, cast-iron pot has a heft to it that no other cookware has. Nevertheless, cast-iron cookware has a place in today’s kitchens, and that doesn’t mean simply hanging on the wall for decoration. Cast iron has much to offer modern-day cooks; it’s easy to use, easy to care for, economical, versatile, and durable, and let’s face it, it has a nostalgic appeal that no other cookware has. But more compelling than all those reasons is that it’s a great cookware that makes great food. In fact, most cast-iron cooks will tell you that food cooked in cast iron tastes better than food cooked in anything else!
