Things I Love
August 21, 2013
When Michael brought this enormous cast iron skillet home, I was furious. It weighs a ton. It takes up too much room in the cupboard. And I knew he’d use it exactly once.
I was right about the last part. And dead wrong about everything else. Lately I find myself reaching for this huge (15 inches across) black beauty with increasing frequency. It can cook a dozen lambchops on the stove. It can make pancakes for a crowd. And it slides easily into the oven, where it makes the perfect roasting pan for a chicken with a lot of potatoes, garlic and onions.
And because it’s pre-seasoned, it’s extremely easy to care for.
It costs about $70 – and I’m sure it will last forever. How did I ever live without it?

Oh my goodness, I LOVE my skillet. we registered for one when we were engaged and I loved the meals we’ve been able to create with camping, but I hadn’t thought about using it inside. I can’t wait to try. Do you have a Dutch oven? That’s a lot of fun for one-pot meals, roasts, etc.
Thanks, Emily, for reminding me of how much I love my Dutch oven! I use it so often that I completely overlooked it. Remedied now.
