Lodge Logic Cast Iron Cooking

Cast Iron Cooking

Is there anything more masculine than cast iron cookware? I think not. It is the epitome of manliness in the kitchen. That and a smoker oven (but that’s another story). I hate to generalize but when we think of Father’s Day we think dads like to barbeque and cook with high heat!

Father’s Day is June 19th and we’re all about the cast iron this month! We carry three brands of cast iron, Lodge, Staub, and Le Creuset. You will find in-store specials on all in-stock cast iron for the month of June. Strike while the Iron is hot and get your hands on some long-lasting quality cookware that dad, or any foodie for that matter, will adore. You just have to figure out your preference!

CDN Infrared Gun 88IN1022

CDN Infrared GunIt is important to know that cast iron cookware gets hot. And I mean very hot. As a means to manage pan temperatures during cooking consider an infrared gun. CDN, the time and temperature company, has a very sophisticated infrared gun that measures any surface heat.

If the home chef knows how to control surface heat in skillets then non-stick cookware would last longer and pans would cook more efficiently and perform as expected.

Most novice cooks work with too much heat and thus food sticks to pans, gets burnt and pots ruined. Get successful results by knowing precisely your cooking temperature.
