Shared reported that the fact is not an old wives’ tale but has been proven to be true.

One may have heard that the cast-iron skillet helps in the higher absorption of iron and offers numerous other health benefits.

There are at least 10 good reasons to use such a skillet in the kitchen.

Supplies iron to the body

Cast iron cookware is probably the one type that has nutritional benefits. It releases a small amount of iron every time food is cooked in it.

This boosts the iron levels in the body, especially while cooking overly acid foods.

Toxin-free

This is also one of safest methods to cook. While most non-stick pans release toxins every time something is cooked in them and they get scratched, the cast-iron cookware is completely safe.

Versatility

It can be used in the oven, on the charcoal grill, or on the stove top. It can withstand different heating levels and the high temperature does not damage its shape.

Non-sticky

The skillets are naturally non-stick. The oils of the food previously cooked accumulate on its surface, and create a non-stick coating.

Heating benefits

Another advantage is that the cookware distributes the heat evenly and one can cook freely on high heat.

Easy cleaning

The cast iron can be cleaned easily with a non-abrasive sponge and hot water. Soap is not needed, unlike in the case of other cookware.

The cost factor

As mentioned earlier, this is a lifetime investment. It turns out to be cheap since once can find the cookware for as low as $20.

Used for millennia

Reports suggest that the cast-iron pans were initially made in China in the fourth century B.C, and were brought to England in the 12th century. They became popular in the U.S. in the 18th century.

It is highly recommended to purchase cast-iron cookware if one already does not own it.
