Cast iron cookware is sturdy, durable and easy to care for. It is difficult to find such tough, long-lasting pots, pans and skillets for such affordable prices. Enameled coatings make these pieces especially easy to clean, and also offer a variety of color selections. Either glass or iron lids make this cookware versatile for preparing most any dish you can imagine. From grilling to sautéing to frying, you can do it all with these great products.
The basic black cast iron cookware, available from brands like Lodge Logic, simply can’t be beaten for frying a variety of foods. New technology has made these cast iron skillets, pots, pans and other pieces even more usable. The item can then be washed, dried and cared for much like a glass dish. Enamel also allows manufacturers like Le Creuset to offer these items in beautiful colors, such as lime green, bright blue, orange, red and white.
Aside from cast iron pots, skillets, and pans, there are many cast iron cookware items available to help you get the job done in the kitchen. Reversible griddle/grills, like those by Emerilware, are incredibly versatile. You have one side for preparing hamburgers, vegetables, steaks and other grilled items (with perfect grill marks every time) and another side for eggs, pancakes and other foods that require a flat cooking surface.
Casseroles, roasts and other entrees cook evenly and serve well in au gratin bakers, roasters and French ovens. Great selections are available by brands like Primula, Michelle B. by Fagor and others. Teapots are for more than just making tea. Heat water for hot cocoa, make hot apple cider and even introduce needed humidity into a heated room with a pretty black or green teapot set handily on the stove top, available from Primula.
For the cast iron cookware you need for frying, grilling, sautéing and whatever other cooking you need to do, you'll find it at Macy's.
