Cast Iron Skillets

Hello everyone. For the most part, all of us have cooked at one time or another for ourselves, and I may add, nothing beats the good old cast iron skillets. I have several.
In fact I have probably one of the biggest ever made for home use. I have the giant one in storage. Plus I have a “dutch oven“, a couple small ones, and a few medium ones.
The one included in this posting is the most common one used.
Cast iron cooking utensils has been traced back to China 2000 years ago, and had early days in the Netherlands.
(Dutch Oven) They’re known for retaining and balancing heat. They actually went into a decline in popularity and have made a comeback.
If cared for, the cast iron skillet will last a lifetime.
