My grandmother believed iron skillets were the best..and research has shown trace amounts of iron cook into your food when you use tham and that's supposed to be a good thing. I got a really nice aluminum skillet last year for Christmas but everything sticks to it, no matter how much oil I use..I hate it! My x would only use teflon and I was just looking at the skillets he left here and noticing the teflon tht has been cooked/scraped..came off, and I thought good god how much teflon have I ingested in these past few years?! Scary!! I'm going to go buy new skillets today..what kind would you suggest and why?

I use a cast iron skillet for heavy cooking like browning meats, and I use a non-stick one for lighter cooking like eggs or crepes. I like the iron one because it is really heavy duty and can hold up to a lot of abuse; my favorite cast iron skillet belonged to my great-grandmother and is over 100 years old! I like to use the non-stick skillets when I am cooking delicate things that will be damaged if they stick to the pan, and since I treat the non-stick pans gently they are holding up pretty well. I've had stainless steel and aluminum skillets too, but I didn't like them.
