When it comes to a cast iron skillet I reach for the same one every time...my 10-inch Cast Iron Skillet. In fact, it's been the star of many recipes here at NellieBellie.
I love this skillet because when you combine it with the lid, it is incredibly versatile. You can use it:
- On the stovetop.
- In the oven.
- On the grill.
- On a campfire.
- In the broiler.
- As a dutch oven.
- As a braiser.
- As a fryer.
- As a pizza pan (think deep dish pizzas!).
- As a casserole pan (I make my TaterTot hotdish in my 12inch).
If you take the upfront time to properly season your cast iron pan you'll find it really, really easy to clean.
