  1. Cast Iron cooking
    Hi there We recently bought 2 cast iron frying pans very cheap, about 8UK pounds each. The idea was to throw away the non-stick ones whose coating can be hazardous.

The problem is buying non stick pans that don't lose their coating. My recent casualty is a "Simply Calphalon" saucepan...

    I don't know if this is in the right place, but I really would like to know how to "season" cast iron pots and pans. I have had a few over the years and they've all rusted and I threw them in the trash. :P Is there a special method? Thanks! :)

    I've been giving a great deal of thought to this as I anticipate my kitchen being put back together (hopefully) soon. My old system was fine, but I'm always on the lookout for a system which is more space/time efficient or nicer to look at. So...how do YOU organize YOUR pots and pans?

    and what type do you buy? My baking pans just are HORRIBLE. I guess I keep buying the cheapies. I currently don't even own a 9x13. :eek: Is it worth it to invest in more expensive baking pans or is everyone just really careful about caring for their pans?

    Stains can be a problem in pots and pans. So fill the pot or pan with a solution of 3 tablespoons of vinegar to a pint of water. Boil until stain loosens and can be washed away.
