Growing up, my family always used cast iron skillets. When I moved away from home and started my own life, I started to miss cooking with my favorite cookware. Instead of spending a lot of money on new cast iron skillets, my grandparents gave me a few of their old ones - ones I was already used to cooking with. The only down side was that I definitely needed to refurbish them. After cleaning, seasoning and removing the rust from the skillets, they were all set to use.
What is your experience with cast iron? Do you like to use cast iron cookware or as decor in your home?
