Re: Cast Iron Cookware

Replying to a 2008 thread!

Cast iron cookware may be fine at home but on a boat it sux big time.
The amount of propane to heat the pan to cooking temp is crazy.

Propane,, on a boat, is a finite, expensive resource that is not available in many places you may be anchored.

On passage it must be conserved.

Investigating cookware I found the reason why heavy pots are reveared: they are expensive! They want you to spend 10 times you need to spend.

I now buy my stuff from commercial kitchen supply stores. They have what the professionals use. Top quality. Low prices. Long lasting. Fast to heat. Economic to use.
