There is absolutely nothing like cooking in a well seasoned or enamel finished cast iron pan. Enamel finished cast iron keeps the core of the pan from rusting or loosing the 'season' while giving you all the benefit of having cast iron cookware, and without hot spots. These pots and pans are something that you can look forward to passing down to your kids and grandkids... they will last for darn near forever! And Clean-up is really a breeze! Made in France!
