Unless you’re a professional chef, no one at home expects to you cook like one. But they do expect you to cook well enough so that your food doesn’t taste as if it came out of a poorly-ran fast-food joint.
So you came here wondering about the differences between a grill pan and a skillet? As usual, I’ve got you covered.
At the end of the day, cooking comes down to two things: the act of preparing delicious food for your family and the desire to make the experience as enjoyable for yourself as possible. So it only makes sense that you’d select cookware that helps you get there.
Enameled pans and pots are essentially cast iron cooking vessels covered—on the inside and out—with vitreous enamel, a thick layer of melted glass that gets fused onto the metal through a particular process.
Most of us remember our mothers and grandmothers using a cast iron skillet for cooking. Except for smelly fish, you can prepare anything with success in a cast iron skillet.
Cast iron skillets are a very popular choice of cookware for home cooks. They distribute heat evenly, keep foods warm for a long time, and last for a lifetime without warping. Also, the only acts of maintenance they need are hand-cleaning and the occasional seasoning.
