Cast Iron Cookware

My cast iron pot is my favorite cookware item in the kitchen. I got it about 8 years ago from Zellers and cured it myself since it wasn’t enameled. Curing means rubbing the pot with oil and baking it to produce a black non-stick finish. After that’s repeated a number of times, the pot is cured and ready for use. It must be treated as gently as any other non-stick pot – no metal utensils, no washing in dishwasher, etc.

There is no need to buy an expensive Le Creuset pot to make amazing meals. My $20 cast iron pot produces meals so flavorful and rich in complexity that it’s impossible to replicate it in any other type of cookware. The reason is, cast iron is a porous material and absorbs every flavor from every meal it’s seen. I bet the Le Creuset could not do that since it’s enameled and all flavors would just wash off. I heard from many people that you must never ever wash your cast iron pot, just wipe it clean. I do hand-wash mine gently, and it seems fine – the flavors are still there, and the food does not stick. After washing the pot, I quickly dry it with paper towels, let it dry it a bit more, then rub with oil to keep it well conditioned and prevent rusting. I highly recommend buying a cast iron pot or pan – if you treat it right, your meals will be infinitely rewarding. Come to think of it, you may even want to pass it on to your children.
