Wow! I too have cast iron fry pans, but can only use them on the barbeque grill since the would scratch my cooktop stove. They definitely make food taste good and after they are "seasoned" they are better than any other pan. It is amazing how expensive it it to buy them today.

you can use it in your oven------------biscuits-----cornbread---for example------------also if you like pineapple up-side down cake-----------that was the original way to cook it-------all the others are just imitation--------because nothing makes that brown sugar, butter and pineapple crisp nearly as well!!!!!!!!!

I always make my pineapple upside down cake in my largest cast iron skillet.  I've used the two smaller sizes on the top of my glass top stove without a problem.  I'm careful not to slide them around so I don't scratch the surface.

When my hubby bought my new stove a few years ago he also bought me a new set of stainless steel cookware,3 pans,3 pots and a large stock pot and lids to fit them all.I really enjoyed cooking with them and still do.However since my brother gave me the old 11 3/4" Wagner frying pan I use it everyday.Nothing cooks as well as a nice cast iron frying pan.I now have a griddle and a dutch oven.in cast iron.

My mom had a small cast iron frying pan that wasn't used for anything other than her fried eggs.There are health benenfits to using cast iron it adds iron to the foods cooked in it.

One of my sons gave me a cast iron pan for Christmas.  I have yet to season it and use it.  I have a smooth top electric range and hesitate to use it on that.  Assume I can use it in the overn though.  I purchased one of those new frypans that you season and don't have to use any oil, butter, etc. , seasoned it and made scrambled eggs in it.  Came out very well.  Purchased one of them for myself and one for my sister in law.  She has not tried hers yet.  The last time I was there, I seasoned it for her.
