Did you know cooking with a cast iron cookware set can actually improve your health? Cooking with cast iron results in a slightly increased bodily intake of Iron, an essential mineral. Most North Americans don't get enough iron in their diet. Granted, if you cook one or two meals a day on iron pans, the small amount that is absorbed into the body by the food represents only about 20% of the recommended daily dosage, but it's better than nothing!
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?
