Her lentil burger did look amazing, didn't it?

I did get a case iron skillet and am getting the hang of using it. A friend has a chicken recipe that she does the veggies on the stove a little, then adds chicken and her homemade sauce, then puts the whole thing in the oven. I'm going to try it this weekend -- it will be my first from the stove to the oven dish using the cast iron skillet.

I have a lot of cast iron (some with ceramic coatings, like my dutch oven) and stainless steel.

I really love using my cast iron for starting any recipes on the stove that need to be finished off in the oven. They're also super great for roasting vegetables in the oven - it's way better than wasting some foil!

I am using a lot of pottery raminkens (sp?) to even cook in portion control for the single person. I make individual cassoroles that are cooked all at on time then frozen for later use.

I like Stainless Steel, Sticking is a sign of poor cooking, I know as I have done it many times :)

I love cast-iron cookware and have a nice selection of skillets in various sizes. Unfortunately, cooking with them isn't as foolproof on my electric glass-top range, so I don't use them as much. My other cookware is primarily Calphalon from the '80s. I like it a lot, and they've improved the finish since my purchase. I don't replace it because it's still good; there's nothing wrong with it. I have a couple other nonstick skillets that I've picked up more recently that I like. I usually look for good sales on things like that.

I think I'd go to a thrift store for cast iron but be more inclined to get nonstick cookware new.

An older article on different types of cookware: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/nutriti

I just purchased my first cast iron skillet and am enjoying it. I'm also going to have to replace my 2 quart pot as the coating is now damaged. Not sure what I'm going to get.

What is your favorite type of cookware? Do you prefer coated pots and pans or do you use other options. What would you pick up at a thrift store and what would you go new on?
