HOW TO GET STARTED

Many non-stick pans are effectively disposable, can't be recycled, and cost a pretty penny. Why go for the latest fads when it's easy to stick to proven winners such as cast iron? Cast iron will become nonstick with regular use. New diamond-clad pans are traditional short-lived non-stock pans with a makeover. By sticking with cast iron we're stopping the continuous flow of chemically harmful and disposable cookware.

EMBRACE

  1. Can easily last over 100 years even with regular use
  2. Made in the USA close to its primary market
  3. Is infinitely recyclable and does not impact the environment as it degrades.

Noteworthy Product Attributes

  1. Much lighter than traditional cast iron - achieved by making the sidewalls thinner
  2. Can take abuse from metal utensils
  3. Does need to be dried before being put away to avoid rust spots
  4. Basic design modeled after traditional cast iron pans from over a century ago

AVOID PRODUCT TYPE

AVOID

  1. Many diamond-clad type products still contain forever chemicals such as polytetrafluoroethylene (PFTE)
  2. Have to follow very particular instructions to unlock non-stick properties
  3. Typically, these are made overseas far from their primary market
  4. Lifespan is unclear - may be a decade or two best case scenario - may experience faltering after a few months.
