I have found some good quality ones in Junktique shops if you look past the rust.

Plenty of videos on restoring. A personal favorite was by Stony Ridge Farmer. He used the oven cleaning cycle to help remove rust.
I have put them in my wood stove when they were to nasty,,,,,, and you can't get a wood stove hot enough to hurt one but it will get all the grime off one

I once restored a completely rusted cast iron skillet that had been left at a KOA campsite.

All I did was use a drill with a rotary sanding attachment, and sanded all the rust off. I used a cheap, dollar-store sharpening stone to get in the crevices and other tight areas, and simply seasoned it with Crisco lard when I was done.

It was a great pan, about 12 or 14 inches, if I remember correctly.

I ended up giving it to a friend who was going to culinary school to be a chef, and it's my understanding that he still uses it regularly in the restaurant that he works in.

I liked this one because it heated the pan as the oven temp rose. I would be nervous about throwing an unheated pan in high temps.

Everyone has different ways with cast iron, but it is the best when seasoned.

These are 2 of my favorites.

On the left, a Lodge Grill pan. Grill lines anything on the stove top

On the right, an Upan sausage cooker from New Zealand. Ingenious design makes any normal curved sausage cook straight for a bun. And evenly cooked too. Works great on my grill too, cause the sausages donā€™t roll. I just got it and after 2 uses it vaults to number 2 of 10 cast iron pans list.

I like the grill pan. I had an aluminum one once, got from mom. Didn't like it. I'll look for a cast iron one.

A really cool place to find cast iron are at garage sales, flea markets, and farmer's markets.

Also, you can get cast iron for free from Freecycle on Craig's List. Estate sales are also good places to score cast iron.

I know somebody whom actually completely furnished a kitchen for free by using Freecycle.

She had a complete set of cooking implements, a microwave, a coffee maker, and so forth.

All of my cast iron utensils are from the second hand shop and flea markets for just a few bucks, except the big broiler and chili pots...they were found in the junkyard in the "scrap-metal" container and I got them for free when nobody was looking!!!! Never been used, probably not understood and tossed by the grandkids when grandma and granddad died...

Teflon is scarey to me. If you have a pet bird (like parrots or mynah birds), they can very easily die from being in the same room with people cooking on teflon. See beliw:


If it poisons birds, then why do we want to eat food that's been cooked on it?
Excellent, Outstanding, documentary on Teflon from 2018 called "The Devil We Know".
Rotten Tomatoes gave it 100%
Dupont used pregnant factory workers as "test cases" to see what would happen when they were exposed to the long chain of carbon atoms (C8). The results were miscarriages,stillbirths, and babies born with both physical and intellectual impairments.

"This is Wiliam "Bucky" Bailey. His mother worked at the plant with the C8 waste while she was pregnant. When William was born in January 1981 , he had similar birth defects to his nose and eye that were found in the rats." He has endured over 40 reconstructive surgeries on his face........Dupont denies any wrongdoing. Bucky has been in a few films and is married. and has two healthy children. God Bless! šŸ˜‡

"Citizens in West Virginia take on a powerful corporation after they discover it has knowingly been dumping a toxic chemical- now found in the blood of 99.7 percent of Americans--into the local drinking water supply."

Pretty much the entire water table of WV is now polluted... when I drive through it I do not drink any water or fountain drinks. Absolutely disgusting what happened to wild, wonderful West Virginia.
Now why would they think a chemical created for the Manhattan Project and the first Nuclear devices could cause harm to humans???
