Cooking isn't just for indoors, and outdoor cooking does not only include summertime BBQs! There is an old saying that food tastes better when it's cooked outside. Lucky for believers of that saying, there is a whole line of outdoor cookware designed for the best of cooking under a big sky. From ovens to mess kits to utensils, you'll never be without the proper tools. Many of the items are designed for camping convenience as well, meaning they are lightweight and easy to clean, pack, and store.
I like the concept on non-stick but I keep having to buy a new pan every year or two because the coating wears off. Are there any non-stick pans out there that actually work well, are eas and are durable?
It's not always easy or convenient for me to cook outdoors, but sometimes I really crave a grilled steak. I'm thinking of buying a grill pan for indoors. Is there any one in particular you'd recommend?
I want one of those shiny black cast-iron pans without having to wait for years to achieve the finish, or for my grandmother to hand-down hers. Are there any cast-iron pans out there that have that finish already?
I'd like to cook more, but I am often just too tired and time-constrained when I return home. Do you have any suggestions for streamlining dinner preparation so I can put together a healthy, good tasting meal fast?
