A Brief History of Cast Iron Cookware
Nowadays, cast iron cookware is one of the most used kitchen cookware. It has
excellent heat retention properties, and can be produced and formed with
a relatively low level of technology. Many people are starting to love this
cookware. But the common question of everyone is where did it all started?
The first North American cast iron foundry was established back in 1619, and,
with such a long history, we tend to think that cast iron really originated in
America. Yet, it was not. Cast iron pans’ history started as early as the Hans
Dynasty in China, way back 206 BC- 220 AD. It was used for salt evaporation
purposes back then. Cast iron cauldrons and other cooking pots were valued
as kitchen stuffs for their durability and their ability to retain heat, hence
improving the quality of cooking meals. In Europe cast iron pans were used
already during the 14th century. Before the introduction of the kitchen stove in
the middle of the 19th century, meals were cooked in the hearth or fireplace,
and cooking pots and pans were designed for use in the hearth. This meant
that all cooking vessels had to be designed to be suspended on, or in, a fireplace.
Cast iron pots were made with handles to allow them to be hung over a fire
or with legs so that they could stand up in the fireplace. Since the American
Revolution, cast iron stove were invented. Cooking pots and pans with legless,
flat bottoms were designed when cooking stoves became popular; this period
of the late 19th century saw the introduction of the flat cast iron skillet. Cast
iron cookware was especially popular among homemakers and housekeepers
during the first half of the 20th century. As a matter of fact, most American
households had at least one cast iron cooking pan.
Today, a large selection of cookware can be bought from Kitchen Suppliers
Company, of which cast iron encompasses only a small fraction. However,
the durability and reliability of cast iron as a cooking tool has ensured its
survival and endurance. Currently, cast iron cookware is very in demand and
recommended by most cooks and chefs as an important part of any kitchen.
For any number of reasons, cast iron makes a superior skillet that will last
for generations and just improve with age.
Cast-iron cookware may seem like an old-fashioned choice. Yet, this reliable
cookware is a need in the modern kitchen. It conducts heat excellently, used
from stovetop to oven easily with no hassle and last for a really long time. Not
only that, but there are health benefits in using this cookware. In using cast
iron cookware, customers don’t need to use gads of oil in cooking because
of its seasoning. Seasoning means coating the cooking vessel with cooking
oil and baking it in an oven for an hour. Another benefit to using cast-iron
pans in place of nonstick pans is that you avoid the harmful chemicals that
are found in nonstick pans. Lastly, this cookware fortifies the food with iron
which is a good thing since iron deficiency is fairly common worldwide.
These were just some of the benefits in using the cast iron cookware.
There are two kinds of cast iron cookware the Enameled cast iron
cookware and the Bare cast iron cookware. Enameled cast iron is cast iron
that has a vitreous enamel glaze. The enamel coating over the cast iron
prevents rusting, eliminates the need to season the cookware, and allows for
more thorough cleaning. It is safe to use with acidic foods and has high heat
retention due to its thickness and generally awesome cast iron qualities.
Furthermore, these skillets are also safe to use in the oven, on all stoves and
on the grill. On the other hand, most bare cast iron cookware is cast as a
single piece of metal, including the handle. This allows it to be used on both
the stovetop and in the oven. It is relatively cheap compared to enameled
cast iron. Bare cast iron can help to evenly deliver heat more efficiently as
the result of the unique radiative properties of the dark metal. Additionally,
if you have an iron deficiency, bare cast iron can help to add extra iron into
your food. Thus, these two kinds of cast iron cookware are both very usable
in the kitchen.
