Of all the skillets, I've tried. Cast Iron is my favorite by far. My teflon cookware sticks and is hard to take care of so as to not scratch the coating. When things stick, you can't scrape the heck out of it like you can with cast iron. My cast iron is really good at avoiding sticking...just a little butter in the bottom is enough to perfectly fry eggs. Does anyone else appreciate cast iron as much as I do?
