So, who here has a cast iron addiction? Raise your skillets..err…hands…

cast iron

I know I do! So, when I had the opportunity to try out these skillets from Crucible Cookware(retail $34.97, Amazon), I jumped on it! There are a lot of great benefits to owning and using cast iron, and I will list some for you:

  • Increased iron intake
  • Naturally nonstick
  • Versatile- can use for baking or frying
  • Easy to clean, using only hot water
  • Can be used with any heat source, including an open fire
  • Will last forever if properly cared for

These skillets from Crucible come pre-seasoned, meaning that they *should* be non stick already. However, I know my luck. This means that for me, I seasoned them again. It’s just what  I do. Let’s take a look at the unboxing, so that you  have an idea of what you are getting with these:

For the price point on this set, that is a fantastic deal! I mean, come on, where else can you find one skillet for that price, let alone an entire set? I’m telling you, that tiny skillet is probably the cutest skillet I’ve ever seen in my life! I seriously cannot get over the cuteness! There are a lot of things you can do with these skillets. I’m not sure what you have done in the past, but I do all kinds of cooking with mine. I fry in them, and I bake. You can literally go from frying eggs, to baking cakes or bread. I make a fabulous molasses cake for my father-in-law in my cast iron. The possibilities are endless! So go check them out!
