Has anyone except KRICKET4 read the article from the link I posted? Thanks KRICKET4 for your comment.
Yes, we can certainly drive ourselves crazy trying to get everything "right" but still, the way I see it, it's good to keep informed and to simply think about these things. I'm not going to get stressed about it either.
However, since we got this ceramic topped stove we have found out that only perfectly flat bottomed cookware works well on it. My old and well-used cast iron stuff had become slightly warped so it's been in storage for a long time. The one exception is my big Dutch oven which I have used for making crispy crusted breads. I finally invested in a clay baker for bread and I like it much better than the cast iron Dutch oven. It's much lighter to boot!
Tip: before storing cast iron make sure it is well seasoned, oven dried and lightly smeared with a coating of oil then wrapped in plastic. It can turn very rusty otherwise.
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
