Cast iron skillets

Grandma knew that for fried foods and baked items, a cast iron skillet could do it all. Cast iron's thickness means it doesn't heat too quickly and burn food, yet maintains its temperature, which is so important for frying. These skillets give you perfectly browned food and can't be beat for biscuits, corn bread, and perfectly glazed pineapple upside down cake.
