Did You Know that a Cast Iron Pan Makes THE Best Fried Potatoes? (Giveaway)

Jennifer here to share with you about a brand new frying pan that I just discovered. We were sent an item to review and one to giveaway, however all opinions listed are totally my own.

I love to cook. It is my second passion next to writing. However, my cookware at home is only about 15 years old. Yes, I know I should probably invest in new cookware. I have just been super lazy about it. There are certain pieces I am looking for, and I just don’t want to settle for just any old piece.

When we were contacted at the beginning of May about a cast iron skillet that makes cooking a breeze, I was very intrigued. I had to check it out for myself and just see if this pan was as good as they were claiming it to be.

My husband LOVES this pan, and frankly, so do I! This pan has been used so far to cook bacon, sausage, fried potatoes, make gravy, and scrambled eggs. I have used every utensil known to man (some of them metal) and it has not left one scratch on.

I love how even everything cooks. I guess it is true — when it comes to cooking utensils, you get what you pay for — and this is one of those pieces that will forever be my favorite.

What would you fix if you had this awesome cast iron pan?

    I need to replace my cooking ware as well. They are as old as dirt… okay maybe not that old but you get the picture. lol

    Like you, I want to invest in pieces that will last and will cook my food well. Anything that can help reduce my energy use, especially with cooking, is a plus in my book.

    I would make everything in it! Orzo would be good or eggs or sauteed mushrooms. Seems like it would be great for many things.

  3. says

    My mom used to bring her cast iron skillet camping with us! She would make the best eggs and bacon. I would make pancakes if I have one.

  4. Shari says

    Well, since you say it does fried potatoes well, I’d do that! We love those at our house. Stirfry would be great, too.

  5. says

    We found a recipe a few years ago for potatoes with salt, pepper, cayenne, and cheese – so easy and so good! This pan would be perfect for those.

  6. Dawn Monroe says

    I love cast iron pans. I have my moms old pan and use it to make pineapple upside down cake. I would make fajitas in the one shown.

  7. says

    I got a great recipie for Sweet Bacon that calls for a cast iron pan, that’s the first thing I’d try. I’d also use it for my homemade burgers, and so the hubby can make me steak! So much Yummy!

    I would make pork chops and fired potatoes with country gravy! Then we would all flop on the sofa and watch a movie because we would be comatose from that heavy but delicious meal!
