When Radisson and des Groseilliers explored Canada in the 1660s, I heard that they traveled with a cast iron dutch oven in their canoe. I would think that portaging a canoe is bad enough. LOL

I am a cast iron snob. Prefer Made in USA stuff. Bought a made in China a while back, didn't take to seasoning well and heat was uneven. The prices for US made are skyrocketing and even used on Ebay are high. Hold on to the ones you have.
The more I have began to cook, the more I appreciate cast iron.

We are the same way skypeace - fortunately we have 3 cast iron frying pans of different sizes - as my spouse and I are both avid cooks and enjoy home cooked meals we appreciate the value of cast iron pans.

We also cook with gas and the combination makes for a wonderful cooking experience. As all three pans are old - I haven't been looking for any - hopefully you can still purchase cast iron pans made in North America.

I wanted cast iron. Can't lift it. Back to coated alu or SS.

I totally agree. I had one from china, and the cast iron was more pourous. it didn't season well, and i gave up trying to cook eggs in it.

strangely, this new pan was only $10 and its seasoning is somewhere between the US and China. but i think it might have been a clearance item.

There's a small chain of hardware stores here in Texas called Elliots. They have a big rack of the full line of cast iron cookware and bakeware.

My granny had her cast iron frying pan. It was her favorite. She cooked everything in that pan......meats, veggies, gravies, candy, pizza, and even cake. She had that pan before I was born, and used it till she couldn't lift it anymore.

I think my favorite cast iron piece is the corn shaped pan for "ears" of cornbread.
