I know many place heavy reliance on cast iron skillets in the home. I do. I store four skillets in the compartment under my oven. They include a Wagner's 1891 Original reproduction, pictured below. The Wagner has been a good skillet. I use it for everything at home from hotcakes and French toast to one-skillet meals.

What are some of your favorite dished to cook in your go-to skillet?

Those sure are some pretty pictures! Makes me hungry just looking at them.

My pans get used for pretty much everything. I don't think I have any real "go to" recipes... Thinking Fried potatoes with onions and bell peppers in the morning. The other evening I made coconut curry that came out pretty nice.

When I'm up camping I use them for absolutely everything, including baking.

I have #8 Griswold that loves on my stove top along with a small square Griwold that is perfect for a single egg, I also have #12 standing by for any big jobs. I use mine mainly for full breakfast with potatoes; It is used when I want some sauteed onions and peppers.
These have all been seasoned with bees wax and get a quick rub down with the bees was sock when they are still hot.

I use mine for all sorts of things including baking this deep dish apple pie in a 12" Lodge.

I sometimes use the lids from my 12" Lodge DOs on my 12" Lodge skillets.

Wife Cindy & I like to bake meat loaf in our Lodge 2 qt casserole pan. A few years ago we discovered banana bread is BEST when baked in cast iron Thumbs Up

All the talk of skillets made me hungry for a classic lunch
