You're correct Patty. They are not cheap to buy. We have had our set for @ 15 years, and will probably get passed on down to our kids. I have a friend who is using her Mom's set that is 30+ years old.

Unless I'm camping I don't cook with cast iron any more. There are just some things that only a dutch oven will do well.

To keep your food from sticking, start out with a lower temperature and get the pan hot, then take it up to the higher temps to brown, etc. You'll get some of the natural moisture out of the meats, and then be able to use it as a part of your cooking base so you won't have to use so much oil. In most cases, you will not have to use as much energy running the stove full blast like you did with your non-stick pans.

I have stainless steel pans I bought as a set 12 years ago and they were WELL worth the money I spent. I'm sure it would cost me a great deal more to replace them but they are good pots and I will probably not have to replace them for another 20 years! How many inexpensive pans will you go through in that time period? No thanks!
