My wife has no interest in cast iron, since it doesn't come in pastels, but she does love a steak seared in cast iron.
    can't u 'season' cast iron, whereafter it's surface is easy to clean as teflon?

    IIRC it involves oiling the pan, then super heating it on the stove for () time -- does something re the porousness (or not?) of the surface

    I have well seasoned cast iron I bought in the ‘60s. They are better than any ‘non stick’ surface.

    Have heard of housewives using them as weapons of aggression.

    I try not to wash my cast iron. Wipe it out after using and the oils keep it seasoned.

There is nothing progressive about being pig-headed and refusing to admit a mistake. And I think if you look at the present state of the world it's pretty plain that humanity has been making some big mistake. We're on the wrong road. And if that is so we must go back. Going back is the quickest way on. ---C. S. Lewis

    My ex told a story of an angry wife rolling her drunken husband in the blankets the beating him with a cast iron skillet.

    My brother doesn’t wash his either. I do wash them but never scour them. I can’t see any difference in the performance between mine and my brother's.
