This is really a lot of work... I've used stainless steel skillets for a long time. With the only downside of being sticky, it works great otherwise.

The reason cast iron "gets better with age" is because it absorbs some of the flavors over time. That being said avoid using soap it can absorb some of that flavor as well.

I have my mother's cast iron skillet. It's over 50 years old (maybe older because I'm not sure if my grandmother passed it down to my mom) and it's still going strong. You shouldn't be intimidated by cast iron. The two most important things are use enough fat when you cook and water is your enemy (make sure it's 100% dry). Cast iron is forgiving so if you do get a little rust you can fix it. As far as cracking, it's common sense to not put blazing hot cookware in water. If your pan cools completely, it's fine. I've left mine overnight before. If you have stuck on food boil some water in the pan and that helps to loosen it.

If you recommend Flaxseed, it's very important to point out that you need the refrigerated stuff, not the 'garbage' off the shelves. That stuff is why people are now complaining about it flaking off and such, after the recent flax hype.

I have cooked with cast iron as my mother did before me. And I’ve raised 3 kids mostly alone and worked full time. No reason to do all this work! Once it is seasoned just don’t use soap and don’t soak overnight. Plus it adds iron to your diet which can help prevent anemia.

It's actually pretty easy. 1.) Clean skillet with steel wool and soap. 2.) Watch off all the soap with warm/hot water. 3.) Dry off with towel. 4.) Rub flax seed oil into the whole pan. Clean off excess oil. 5.) Put pan into 450° Oven for 60 minutes. 6.) Oil if needed. 7.) Cook giant ribeye with olive oil and grass-fed butter. 8.) Use kosher or large size salt and a paper towel to clean. 9.) Store in cupboard. From there on it's just one quick layer of oil on the inside after cleaning up after a meal.

Cast iron is not necessarly good conductor of heat (copper, aluminium, brass or steel are much better) but it is very good accumulator of heat. This also depends on tyle od cast iron used. These is also the reason why best radiators for home as cast iron.

My aounty which lived long time in France uses cast iron all the time. From pans to pots and even baking trays. There is one and only fat she uses for seasoning. She has learnt this from French chef. This fat is duck's or goose fat. She use dishes which are cast iron inside but also enamel outside.

Well to begin with they last for a long time. I mean generations. My cast iron pan is 110 years old and still works just fine. Teflon/ceramic pans usually last maybe a couple of years. Another reason why cast iron is great is that they stay hot a lot longer. Which is great for longer cooking periods when you make several different dishes. Unlike Stainless pans which cools down very fast. And if you ask me (and I know a lot of people will agree) it tastes better. Sounds dumb, I know but cast iron gives the food a different kind of taste.

Very informative video. Thanks! Question: On my first time ever seasoning the cast iron pans, a lot of smoke/fume was generated and I had to abort the process after a mere 10 minute inside the over. Is it normal? It didn't feel right at all. I used vegetable oil and set the oven at 450 deg.

That woman is right. Mine is 110 years old, I have only washed it in water once. Only once. When I was drunk.. But normally I just rubb it with sea salt and wipe off. If really dirty it gets 5 minutes in the oven at 200 degrees. Then salt and wipe. Then a layer of rapeseed oil. It's easy, fast and the pan just keeps on living.

The production of new pans with teflon and such is way worse for the environment than heating up a cast iron one. Also, there is no need for water when cleaning it at all so no need to heat it up all the damn time. Just use salt and wipe.

Use salt and oil to clean your pan, not water. Don't heat olive oil or extra virgin olive oil, it becomes carcinogenic. There are oils that are fine at high temperature; flax, avocado, and penut are the ones I know of.

This is actually a myth which numerous sources have debunked. Just google it and you'll find that while *any* oil that is heated to the smoking point has the potential to produce carcinogens, there is no greater risk from olive oil than any other oil, and it is not particularly dangerous to boot.

This entire video is pretty much bullshit. The pan will do best if you just clean it with salt and then oil it after every 3rd or 4th use. No water is needed at all, just wipe it, salt it and oil it. How you store it is up to you, I keep mine hanging on the wall.

We have a cast iron pan at home, and we use it because the iron supposedly transfers some of its iron into the food. My mom uses it a lot because she is anemic, and needs a lot of iron. ( I’m not sure if that iron transferring to the food is true though. )
