Sounds good to me, but I'm just an amateur. What do you think?

I'm a huge fan of cast iron, but I must admit, that I use enamel coated cast iron pans, it's much easier for me to keep these pans clean and rust free than the straight up cast iron pans. You can even see a few pictures of the ones I use on my little food blog that I started a year or so ago at http://gregfly.com

I probably own 15 to 20 pieces of cast iron. Some of it handed down, some of it purchased in second hand stores and some of it purchased "brand new"... Without a doubt the old Wagner and Griswold stuff is superior. I won't even cook on some of the (new) Lodge stuff I own...The -old- Lodge stuff is OK, the new stuff isn't worth a cr**.

I have 2, 10 " skillets, a 6" skillet, (little used) and a good sized iron Dutch oven. I also have a very nice, old set of very heavy heavy stainless steel pots and skillets. I use the iron ware almost exclusively except when boiling water for poached/hard/boiled eggs or pasta. And I agree with Steve P. - the new iron ware isn't worth a hoot. If I wanted to add to what I have I'd look at yard sales. And there there used to be some guy at the large flea market that sold some very nice, old, reconditioned iron ware of old vintage. I bought a cornbread cooker from him.
