Good but limited if you don't have a variety of cast iron pans
on July 5, 2013
I love to cook and I'm one of those guys who believes in getting the right tool for every cooking job. So, when I got a 12" Lodge skillet I figured that their cookbook would be the best source of recipes to use it. The recipes in this book are easy to follow and delicious. But it turns out that most of the recipes are specifically written for cookware that I don't own. Since I don't have a cast iron Dutch oven (yet), I can only read about those treats. Even the skillet recipes are written with a specific sized skillet in mind. It would have been better to give the quantities for either a ten or twelve inch skillet, rather than leaving it to the readers to guesstimate our own conversions. Or, write a cast iron skillet cookbook and a separate cast iron Dutch oven book so that owners of each piece of cookware could derive the full benefit of their investment.
