i dont use metal tools only wooden ones
and only ever scrub when they have started to stick and i have to

Cast iron is the BMW of pans, once correctly seasoned there awesome
Cast iron, but for christ sake do not hit your husband with it, you will get life for murder.
Yep, Cast Iron, That way you do get your daily souse of iron. TRUE!!
i use three types. cast iron, of course. revere ware (copper clad stailess), and farberware stainless (their top end product). i would like to add a full line of solid copper but it's just too pricey for me.
ADD oh, was just reminded i also use a very nice steel wok.
I use a wok for everything! I love my wok!
Yes cast iron is really the best. We still have one going strong after 25 years! Wash it in really hot water,dry and and wipe over with a little oil.Happy frying!
Le Creuset - cast iron. All the way!
I like cast iron and a good 18/10 stainless steel. Coated pans seem to flake off. Temperature is a big factor in keeping foods from sticking. The pan needs to be pretty hot before adding meats. Hot pan/cold meat and it rarely sticks.
I highly recomend a heavy iron skillet!
At first -it will stick if you fry things like potatoes and if you used a bit of butter. But as it ages, it will become "seasoned."
Nice thing about using an iron skillet, is no kitchen tool will ever damage it. Even metal ones. I found some great metal spatulas on the pampered chef website.
After you clean it, rub it down with a bit of oil to help season it and keep it from rusting. I store mine in the oven between
uses. Never NEVER put an iron skillet in a dishwasher.
NEVER use a blowtorch on it!
If you fry foods, use peanut oil! (it heats up the hotest) After
frying.. just wipe the oil out. No need to wash it.
My old iron Wagner skillet is over 100 years old. Best skillet
I've ever had! It takes a beating and keeps on heating...
If you DO buy an iron skillet, get a dutch oven as well.
A cast iron dutch oven makes a fantastic pot of stew and chilli. They last forever!
When you buy a cast iron pany.. watch for the thickness and grade of pan. I've seen some newer cast iron pans that aren't as well made as others. Even with the older pans, you can see how some are made thicker than others.
I've also picked up some great deals with iron skillets at yard sales. Cheap!! (Do they have yard sales in GB?)
And yes - never hit the hubby with the pan! Yikes! You might actually cause damage to the pan!
