Redpill me on cast iron cookware

Does this seasoning impart a special flavor? Or is it just making it non stick? Why all the hype?
>>
>>7076814
>Does this seasoning impart a special flavor?
Not really.

>Or is it just making it non stick?
Yup.

>Why all the hype?
Because it's relatively cheap and will last you forever. The more you use it, the better it gets. Not a lot of things do that these days.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Planned_obsolescence

Also it works with most sources of heat. Fire, coal, gas, electric (both the coil and flat tops), oven safe, etc. Heck, you could leave it in the hot sun and probably fry an egg in the middle of the summer.

They have great heat retention. You can remove it from the heat, and it will still keep cooking. That's great if you're cooking over coals and want to move it off the fire because it seems to be getting too hot. Once it starts to cool, you can push it back over them again.

The "seasoning" is mostly polymerized fats, OP. A non-stick buildup, cultivated on purpose. Not as healthy as bananas, but a whole lot better than Teflon(TM). Plus, grill, oven, broiler, etc.

Autism. There is literally no point to having a coating to a cast iron pan except that it makes it look "rustic and manly". It's a meme. Like bacon.
>>
>>7076814
>Why all the hype?
It's the poor man's le crueset. That's nearly about it.

Why does a heavy iron cookpot get praise, either with the porcelain coating or carbon seasoning of a uncoated?
Well, it browns nicely while you cook which is good for like green tomatoes, okra, livers, fish, fried chicken, pounded cutlets, etc.
It holds heat really well without fluctuating such that you can pan fry without great changes in oil temperature or pan temperature, and one side of your pan isn't going to be hotter than another section, because the whole thing is so damn thick. It also means the contact temperature isn't going to scorch your bean soup or stock on low simmer either.
They are oven-safe handles, so transfer really nice to from cooktop to oven to finish off something. This means you can sear some steak both sides on some screaming hot overheated pan and finish to right temperature in the oven, like Ruth's Cris level browning, no grill needed.
You can move from oven to stove and back again, like when melting grease or fat for a cornbread or a dutch baby, with the right browning too.

We've improved some things a lot since the 1960s. Cookware... not so much; cast iron really works very well indeed provided you keep the detergents away.
>>
>>7076908
>implying new Pyrex isn't shit
>>
>>7077797
Cast iron works fine, with or without detergent.

Furthermore, there has always been cheap cookware and good cookware. Suggesting that cheap cookware is somehow a modern conspiracy to get you to upgrade to newer technology every few years, a la shaving cartridges, is fucking retarded. Shitty stamped steel coated pans from walmart are shit because they are shit. Expensive copper cookware from France, which was also around in 1910, costs more because it's a niche product and there aren't a lot of people both willing and able to pay for it.

The only tiny little nugget of truth in your position is that teflon pans, which you haven't mentioned but I'm sure you had in mind, are disposable items. This is true, and what's also true is that if they're used correctly, meaning not used for oven roasted vegetables and hamburgers, just for scrambled eggs and fish, they are a lot more nonstick than cast iron and they can last several years.

If buying a $30 pan every 5 years triggers you, or if you get some kind of neckbeard thrill out of using one pan for literally everything, then by all means use cast iron. Just don't pretend that it's a good example of planned obsolescence, because it isn't.

>Just don't pretend that it's a good example of planned obsolescence, because it isn't
This makes no sense. Cast iron isn't a good example of that but teflon is.

The best way to season a cast iron pan is to put about a tablespoon of butter in it and microwave it for five minutes. This will melt the butter without heating the pan and you'll get uniform penetration of the butter after you rub it in with a steel wool pad.

A guy on the internet told me this and I believe him because the science checks out.
>>
>>7078388
No one do this. That poster is a complete faggot. Obviously metal in a microwave is bad and steel wool on a cast iron is a "no".

Serious question: Do cast iron pans not come with a label that says "not suitable for microwaves" or something similar?
>>
>>7076814
All the hype because a lot of Reddit neck beards and imgur soon after fell into the cast iron meme when cooking well done steaks and circle jerking that they can cook eggs on a cast iron better than non stick pans ( bullshit btw). Sure it makes a good steak but carbon steel can do the same with less heat emission going into meat for a better sear because you can sear each side longer because of the reduced heat emission, and finish off in oven.

But memes are memes

Seasoning just adds a layer of polymerized oil that makes the pan not rust and so everything doesn't stick on contact.

It's called you being a dumb piece of shit.

KEK your two examples are literally the worst examples one could think of to defend planned obsolescence.
Clothes are made to intentionally wear out, this is simply a fact. The bluejeans you buy from JC Penney today are not going to last as long as the pair of Levis you bought from Sears and Roebuck in the 1950s would have lasted you.

A car made in the 1950s is certainly slower and less safe than a car made in 2015, but the 1950 car is one you would be able to easily repair using common tools. Modern cars use specialty toolsets unique to the car manufacturer, and you often can't reach commonly replaceable parts without doing a fairly complicated teardown. For a person that is used to replacing their own belts, sparkplugs, oil, and brakes it is especially galling that I will need a special tool to reach the sparkplugs, and another tool to access the belt wheel and yet ANOTHER tool for their proprietary oilpan with all these tools being specific to this make of car. Compare this to working on my fathers Chevelle, where all I needed was a fucking wrench.

In both cases, the modern manufacturer makes sure you will be returning to them sooner rather than later.

>JC Penney
Please stop, I don't shop at JC Penney. I have one pair of 17 oz denim jeans that I bought 4 years ago, they're still in very good shape. They are my only pair of jeans. The shoes I'm wearing right now, a leather pair of dress shoes which were made in America, have been resoled twice since I bought them 9 years ago. I fully expect them to last at least another 9 years, if not longer.

Stop buying garbage made in Bangladesh and blaming a conspiracy. You want nice stuff that lasts, it's been there this whole time. You just have to stop shopping at shit stores that cater to people who don't give a shit.

I work industrial real estate and our crew still operates on machinery that was made in the 1920's and is far more robust that modern equivalents.


On topic though, I recently got and stripped an old 8 inch CI skillet. I reseasoned it as usual, but have noticed that on the rim and on the sides there is a bit of flaking. Now I continued to use it and the flaking has all filled in, should I be concerned about this or just keep going? It has (so far) not affected its performance at all, and is becoming a dedicated steak pan.

I also was gifted a used De Buyer Mineral B. I've heard that it's more high maintenance than a Cast Iron. Is there any truth to this? I've just seasoned it 3 times and put it straight to use but I've noticed more sticking than in a CI with new seasoning. Is there something else I should be doing?

One last thing, I have in addition to those above a 12 inch CI and a 10 inch. Is there any point getting a CI dutch oven? Is the performance that different than say, a enameled one like Lodge or LC?
>>
>>7079234

Depends on what kind of flaking you're talking about.

Are these flakes metal/rust, or are they excess food/seasoning?

>>De Buyer Mineral B. I've heard that it's more high maintenance than a Cast Iron. Is there any truth to this?

Nope. All iron and steel pans, woks, dutch ovens, etc, all season the exact same way. It's the exact same process.

>>but I've noticed more sticking than in a CI
I haven't observed what is going on in your kitchen so I'm not 100% certain, but my best guess is that things are sticking because the DeBuyer pans are thinner than typical CI so if you're using the same heat settings on your range as you would with CI you could easily be getting the pan a little too hot.

>>Is there any point getting a CI dutch oven?
You mean a bare CI as opposed to enameled CI? Nope. In fact, I'd rather have the enameled one.

>>7079252

Thank you. The flaking is excess seasoning, I assume maybe I just had too thick a coating, it is certainly not rust.

I use Medium heat on both, takes about 4-6 minutes to heat up properly. Maybe I just need to cook more bacon in it before I try things like Turkey patties (which is what was sticking).
>>
>>7079352
>The flaking is excess seasoning,

Yeah, you have too thick of a coating. The seasoning layer should be very very very thin. Thinner than a sheet of paper. If anything is flaking/falling off then that's not "seasoning", that's nasty food residue. Seasoning should be chemically bonded to the metal; it cannot flake off or be scraped off with anything short of a serious abrasive.

>>Turkey patties (which is what was sticking).

It may be the food. A lot of commercially produced poultry products have a lot of protein-rich juices which can very easily stick.

It heats/cooks more efficiently.

I've seasoned a cast iron pan myself and I've also bought one seasoned. Neither is nonstick.

I saw the cast iron meme posting on here but when i needed a new pan some months ago, i checked out the cast iron in the local kitchen store, it was cheap and i liked the idea of the oan not releasing teflon fumes in the food and air, especially as i just got a cockatiel. I have an electric cooker, but my pan is great, it gives my steak and bacon really nice flavor, i guess cause i can heat it so hot. I was a goober and didnt wash it for some months, so it got that black flaking like the anon said hes got, but i rinsed it out and reseasoned the pan, now its fine, no black bits and the seasoning is building well. I have fried eggs in the pan, and obviously they stick a little, but barely, and they cook so nicely. If you want really good sear on your meat, cast iron is the way to go.

Went through three laundry machines in 10 years. Then bought one 20 years old (for peanuts), got a skilled serviceman to fix it up (for more than a new one costs) and it's been serving me faithfully for 12 years now.

Sure, it doesn't have many modern functions.

Still, if you account for:
- need to call service,
- get told there's no point in repairing (after paying for inspection)
- detaching it and hauling it to the car
- hauling it to the junkyard
- shopping for a new one
- scrambling for money for the purchase,
- hauling it back home,
- moving it in place,
- re-attaching all the hoses
- learning the new panel
every three years -

I will say thanks, the new cool features are not worth it.

My cast iron has some weird lighter spots of coloration. It's not flaking or anything and it works just fine. Any idea what it is? It's not rust (I don't think).
