I am sorry Janam that you have had such trouble with eggs. Are you talking about over-easy fried eggs or scrambled eggs?

I don't have any trouble at all with fried eggs cooked slowly in butter, one at a time, in a little copper bottomed (very old Revere Ware) skillet. Often I don't even need a spatula; the egg just slides around by itself slipping out of the pan looking beautiful

With scrambled eggs I get a little bit of left-over egg in the pan that comes off easily by a few minutes soaking, a little dish soap and a soft mesh scrubby. When making scrambled eggs I use a restaurant (professional) quality, heavy-bottomed stainless steel pan. I put the pan to soak immediately after removing the eggs for serving.

Maybe the type of egg matters. I only eat eggs from my own ducks or from chickens I buy from a neighbor so they are very fresh. Grocery store eggs are troublesome in many ways.

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

Thanks for the article. My husband broke ours a few years back and I have been wanting to get a new one - was thinking of asking for a few sizes next month for my bday, now I guess I should rethink that idea. I can never use my stainless frying pans for cooking my eggs - ALWAYS stick - tried lower slow cooking - quicker cooking - butter - bacon fat no luck. I will have to pull out my clay bakers however - I have a Red Pampered Chef covered caserole that I bet I can put to good use!

Thanks KRICKET4. You might be the only one here that did!

And 67YKCEB, It's possible you have had trouble cleaning your cast iron because you don't know how incredibly easy it is. You might be handling it wrong and making cleanup difficult. A well seasoned cast iron skillet is a breeze to clean--if you don't mind the weight, that is!

But then, the article brings up other issues worth pondering.

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.

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

A few years ago my doc suggested to me to cook more in a cast iron skillet to increase my iron, cause the iron pills made me sick to my stomach. I don't have a lid for it so I don't use it a lot. I haven't really noticed a difference in my food. And I hate cleaning it!!

Please, Please watch and listen for motorcycles while your out and about!

Peace, Love & Hugs

More crazy-making.
Cooking in a cast iron skillet to increase my iron intake - really?!? Never even crossed my mind.
I use a cast iron skillet on a weekly basis, as well as stainless pots.
Non-stick cookware - no way!
