A few weeks ago I made the comment that my wife has retreated from her Stainless Steel Frying pans and is now using castiron ones from Lodge that we get from Amazon.
One of the problems with heavy pans is finding a good way to store them.
Dick seemed to like that we were using Lodge products so I thought I would show him the results of my latest project.
Please notice that I put two lines between the text and pictures so Steve would be happy!
It looks very nice.
You mean you just now started cooking with cast iron?
I made a cake of cornbread in a cast iron frying pan yesterday. It was gone shortly after!
We have a Amazon grey parrot in the house and if you have a pet bird you can not cook with teflon cookware. The fumes will kill the bird. My mom lost 3 when she was trying out her new pans once.
How close are those to the window? If they were here, they might break the glass when we have an earthquake!
I hope they are not hung above something break-able. (Like a stove top)
We have had to quit using cast iron lately due to elevated iron levels in my blood.
That's interesting Gus. Years ago my wife became anemic. On her doctors advice she took iron and the problem was corrected. My grandmother told her that in her time nobody ever became anemic because they all used cast iron cookware.
Well my mom used aluminum pots to cook in when I was growing up. Hum could that be why I aint quite right?
We have been slowly switching to cast iron over the last few years.
My wife found that she liked the cast iron pans better than SS.
Aluminum left years ago,
Norm - The pans are about 15 inches from the glass. If we get a big enough earth quake in the Granite State to break the glass it will be minor compared to the other problems.
Willie - The pans are above the cat dishes - I went into the space above the kitchen and ran the ceiling bolts thru a 2x6 that goes across 3 rafters so the hangers are secure.
If one of the pans fall and hit a cat, it will be OK because they have 9 lives
PS Iron in your blood is OK
You need to watch out for lead.
Especially if it enters with a high velocity
