Cast Iron Skillets. You dig them?



What's the best way to cook a burger at home, on a gas stove?

I heard that Cast Iron Skillets are the way to go.

Would you agree? Have you tried burgers on them?

I use Olive Oil and nothing else to keep it oily.
Only warm water and a wood scraper to get the tough stuff out.

The bonus of Cast Iron is cooking in them is FAT FREE!
A little known fact is Cast Iron absorbs all the bad fats from Bacon and Sausage....thats what Dad told me and I am stickin to it

trip out.....my cast irons are seasoned the old fashioned way.....I may have to try this...thanks for posting..

would flax seed have any different flavor or odor than veg oil?

For burgers, first sprinkle salt in the skillet, the heat until it is searing hot before adding the meat. Supposed to keep the meat from sticking. That's the way I do it anyway.

My grandfather always popped popcorn using bacon grease and a black iron skillet. It's actually pretty good.

yep. pretty much what I have done with mine, and I am satisfied.....although the flaxseed method above supposedly gets you better results (less spotting and rusting apparently, although I dont get much with bacon/veg oil)

If it's sticking, your pan either isn't seasoned very well, or you're trying to flip it too soon.

If you season them well, deglaze them after use, scrub with a plastic cleaner, dry, and re oil after each use, yours will look just like mine in a year or so. It is basically non stick now. I think the biggest keys are to deglaze with water after use, and re oiling every time.

There is no better feeling than re-seasoning.

Personally, I'd skip the griddle and go with a 10- or 12-inch skillet. Everything tastes better in cast iron, and you'll limit what you can do with just a griddle.
So I have the option of grabbing a 10 inch Staub cast iron skillet , griddled or order online a 10 inch Lodge, not griddled .

What do you recommend? I will end up paying the same price for either one, considering shipping costs.

I mainly plan on using it on burgers, searing steaks and grilling Fish. Will I regret my decision if I go with Staub?

Here it is

Not to hijack the thread, but since it's a cooking thread- I got some gift certificates to Williams Sonoma recently and I'm considering a nice quality knife and sharpener. Up to now I've always used just the stuff you get at Target, etc.
Does anyone have an opinion on brand, style, etc? (I was looking at Shun, Wusthof and Global) Are these knives worth it?

I don't really like using vegetable oil to season the pan as the surface can get gummy after a while. We use tallow to season ours. A saturated fat won't oxidize or go rancid like a polyunsaturated will.

Standby on that. The most recent Cook's Illustrated reviewed knife sets. I'll get it and give you the rundown.
