Did you buy an actual old one that you have to do shit to to restore it?
Fuckin waste of time. If you want cast iron just get a new lodge and treat it properly, it takes no time at all and is easy.

Holy fuck that's it that's all the work rewured to season a cast iron literally same amount of work as baking an unseasoned no prepwork roast.

cast iron is great
mom calls my cast iron the "antifeminist pan" (maybe doesn't translate well) because she can't lift it
just remember to reseason it every now and then. Some people think you should just season it once and then leave it forever but cooking with all that carbonized shit on it can get frustrating

Blasting the pan from OP's pic with a sandblaster until it is totally clean would be the most satisfying thing ever. Or with one of those cleaning lasers. Just the sounnd of those gets me hard.

Higher thermal coefficient is better for things that need to absorb high heat faster. It's not for everything. It is for some things. If you do those things and want to minimize the number of pans you have, it also does most other things well.

No? I find merit in both. Charcoal does add a great flavor - and if you're using lump wood charcoal, you can actually cook a steak directly on it, no grill required. But I do like the pan method too, plus you can butter-baste after the flip, then while the steak rests, make a pan sauce or do some mushrooms in the brown butter and steak juices. Deglaze with some sherry...fuck, that's tasty.

You've been using Dawn dishwashing detergent or the equivalent. The grease-removing properties destroys the seasoning. First, go by the dollar store and get some of that cheap-ass dishwashing detergent, the bigger bottle the better. Only use this for cleaning your cast iron. It's the same cheap-ass stuff your mom and grandmother used, Dawn came out about 1978 or so, and it worked for previous generations.

Next, get some of those scouring pads, not like Brillo pads which are steel wool with the funky blue soap embedded in them, but the stuff that looks like curly copper or steel strings with no soap in them. Use these only for cleaning your cast iron.

There's plenty of advice on how to cook unseasoned cast iron. Follow their advice.

After using your cast iron to cook food, wash as normal with cheap-ass soap and curly copper/steel pads, dry it thoroughly, put a thin coat of oil on it, and then put it back on the stove for three or four minutes on medium heat; let the whole iron pan get warmed up, but remove it from the burner before it starts to smoke. Your seasoning will last for years. The important thing is to get rid of every bit of moisture and leave a thin sheen of oil on the pan. I store mine in the oven.

Oh, and this pan is too far gone to just clean, it will have to be re-stripped and re-seasoned. I like to use an electric drill with a 3M stripping wheel:

Even tho you aren’t remotely close, it’s still preferable to renting a broom closet for $2800 a month.
That’s like saying “why would I want to make soup in a rich broth when I can just toss meat and vegetables in water!”

happy_sad
happy_sad

When every single soup you make has to be in the same broth it gets old fast. Charcoal is fine now and then but you have a lot more control over the flavor when it doesn't come from your heat source

An hour of work every so often (depending on how well you keep the seasoning up), but you don't have to worry about nonstick coating peeling into your food.

An hour of work is still more than five minutes washing it then sticking it in a dish washer.

I've got an enamel pan but food still sticks to it like magnet. Do I have to season enamel coated pans as well?

BlogWobbles

nonstick

I just use a stainless steel pan. Better than cast iron for 99% of things.

Iron is best for searing meat though, I'll admit. But stainless steel allows you to make a sauce out of the burned bits.

I use iron for stuff like skirt steak and stuff where I marinade the meat. that way I'm not really losing the au juice and I benefit from the extra heat for moist sear.

The inside is enamel, it's just black enamel.

"The pan doesn't have to be oiled and is easy to maintain thanks to the matte enameled interior."

Food will stick to enamel and develop into a nice fond. Use a pan like that when you want to cook or sear something and then make a sauce with the sticky bits.

New_Cliche

lolno you can't, unless you want the flavors of everything from the seasoning seeping into your sauce

no it's not. Maybe we have different diets, or you just enjoy using iron for objectively suboptimal applications.

I have only ever used charcoal when eating by myself or with family, actually. My friends use gas and the food they grill for me is vastly superior. I do enjoy the smoked chip infused charcoals on the market though.

Cool. Stuff still does stick to it but it comes off with some scrubbing. I wonder if it's possible to eventually scrape the enamel layer off?

cast iron takes to long to heat(and cool off), its unnecessary heavy, and is prone to breaking if you were to let it fall one day.

stainless steel does what cast iron does but better, and if you know how to cook you can do it without making things stick

teflon is retard tier
ceramic looks promising at first but it erodes really fast 1/10 would not recommend
