There was a interval the place I cooked just about all the pieces I ate in my Lodge forged iron skillet, and that interval was each day between my 20th and 30th birthday. Stir fry? Sure. Pasta sauce? Sure. Hen Tikka Masala, straight of a jar? You recognize it, fam. Through the years I’ve grown extra subtle and realized that, for instance, you shouldn’t prepare dinner something as acidic as tomato sauce or tikka masala in forged iron as a result of it damages the seasoning. However… actually, it was fantastic? Nothing unhealthy occurred, no one arrested me, no one on Reddit discovered and bought mad – I even nonetheless have the skillet.
My level? Lodge forged iron skillets are beneath $20 at Walmart proper now, and that’s a reasonably good value contemplating it’s the one piece of cookware you, strictly talking, want. Supplied you’re nonetheless in your 20s.
