I not so long ago received a extremely pleasing gift from my sister for Christmas. It is a 3 quart cast iron combo cooker made by Lodge Logic. I’ve had a big 12″ cast iron skillet for years, but I hadn’t tried cooking in any other type of cast iron cookware. After some experimenting, I’m sold on my combo cooker.
You may wonder what a combo cooker is. It’s very similar to a dutch oven, except the lid is flat on top. It is made so the lid may be turned over and used as a handy 10″ skillet. I’ve also found out that the lid is likewise great to bake homemade biscuits in.
The bottom of my combo cooker hold 3 quarts of whatsoever I want to put in it. So far I’ve used it as bakeware. I baked a whole chicken in it, which turned out just fabulous. I left the lid on the cooker until when it comes to halfway through cooking, then got rid of it so the chicken could brown. It was moist and delicious.
I have likewise used it as a saucepan and I whipped up a very tasty chili in the cooker. I put the lid on and let it cook slowly, which let all the flavors blend together very well.
I’ve had no issues with rust at all, even even though my combo cooker is cast iron. It came from the factory pre-seasoned. I was skeptical when it comes to this, but it turned out that they were correct. I was very pleased that I didn’t have to season the cooker myself. Seasoning my skillet, when it was new, turned out to be a lengthy job.
In case you don’t recognise what seasoning cast iron cookware is, I’ll explain. All cast iron cookware needs to be coated with oil or fat and heated in a hot oven. It’s best to coat it both inside and out. It is beneficial to do this routine a few times. The seasoning procedure lets the oil get into the pores of the cookware, and gives it a rust preventive coating. If cast iron cookware doesn’t come pre-seasoned, this is a step you will have to do yourself. It’s a mandatory step, or your cookware will rust, no matter how you try to prevent it.
Seasoning cast iron likewise makes it almost totally unlikely for feed to stick to it. It is fundamentally the initial version of non-stick cookware.
I had been wanting this cast iron combo cooker so I could use it at my cabin. I can’t wait to cook a pot of beans in it. I want to cook with it over the coals in the fire pit. I also have visions of cooking up a nice bacon and eggs breakfast, using the lid as a skillet over the same fire pit.
One of the perks of cooking with cast iron is the little amount of iron that transfers to our food. Using cast iron cookware helps us get the iron our bodies need without taking supplements.
The only drawback I may find with my combo cooker is the weight. It is heavy. With the lid on, it is very heavy. Fortunately, it has a helper handle on it, so this hasn’t been much of an issue so far.
All in all, the fact that it is closely non-stick, may double as a dutch oven or a skillet, and is thick sufficient to cook in hot coals with, far surpasses the weight element for me.
If you have been taking into account cooking with cast iron cookware, I do commend that you give it a try. It may soon be your favored cookware.
