We asked chefs about the best pots and pans, including Joan 12-Inch Polished Cast-iron Skillet, Lodge 12-Inch Cast-iron Skillet With Dual Handles and Sloped Sides, Mauviel Copper Triply 7-Piece Cookware Set, and Zwilling Forte Nonstick Fry Pan..
This has been in my cart for probably five years. Whenever I get close to clicking “Check Out,” I start getting neurotic and Google how to care for cast-iron pans — a black hole of conflicting internet advice — and then I feel guilty for not appreciating my simple nonstick pan which has served me well enough. This cycle repeats every couple months, whenever I see one of those cast-iron pan glamor shots on Instagram. Everyone who has one tells me it’s really not a big deal to care for, so I think I just need someone to buy me one and save me from overthinking it. .
Good for dads who love grilling even in the winter and pride themselves on perfect pancakes.
