    I suppose as a guy, a component of the fun part of cooking is the stuff you buy in order to cook.

    As a mechanic has tools, so to does the chef. So here's my pots and pans, most of which are Viking Professional line which I like because they're VERY heavy and have stainless and aluminum multi laminated layers in each of them . Bottom line, it's VERY even in all areas of the pan. The copper conducts the heat the best. Electric or flame, don't matter. All handles are metal, which means you can go from stove top to oven to continue the boil or cooking process.

    And my prized Mauvel, all copper fry pan and saute pan, and a De Buyer crepe pan..............

    The large Mauvel's are 2.5 mm of copper and they run about $500-600 each. The Viking pro's are about $50-200 each.

    It's a Lodge. One of America's oldest brands.

    I think everyone needs Cast Iron. Some of the most even cooking can be had on it.

    Also, it's a necessity for browning stuff.

    With all this high tech this and that, good old Cast iron is still going strong and here to stay in my book.

    I spent a lot of loving time seasoning it with lard, bacon frying and wiping it down with chives, which comes from the Wok cooking crowd seasoning tricks.

    Cast iron becomes non-stick after it's seasoned and used the heck out of.

    VIKING stuff is pretty amazing too. It's very thick and heavy, clad in layers of stainless and aluminum for grreat head distribution. You get even cooking on these and no varying areas of hot spots.

    I've got a bunch of Lodge stuff. A couple different depth 10 & 12 frying pans, three dutch ovens and an old griddle. Good stuff. I just got a 20 qt. Bayou Classic dutch oven that fits on my fish cooker. I going to use it for Gumbo. I usually use an oven, but this one I seasoned on the TEC burners on my grill. I heated up, rubbed it down with shortening and left it. Repeated a couple of times, and it already looks 20 years old, black as night and slick to the touch. I love cast iron stuff, it's the only reason I'll stop at a garage sale, sometimes you can find some cool stuff.

    Tonight I'm doing a pork tenderloin in the Dutch oven.

    Going to brown it first on the stove top, then take it out to carmelize onions, then add some apples to it and put the pig back in and cover to finish in the oven, low and slow.

    sounds good! When I read the original post I couldn't help but thinking "hopefully you actually use such a nice collection of cookware. And please tell me you actually make crepes with your crepe pan.

    cast iron ftw - I was gifted 10 and 12" skillets when I left home for college, andlast year for Christmas I got a Staub 6.5 qt dutch oven (black matte enameled cast iron).

    Yeah, I'm a heterosexual (that means I like girls) man that makes crepes. My take on my toys, be they high end airguns, custom swords and knives, or guns, is to use them.

    I used to be afraid to use any of my nice things, now my take on it, is to get the most enjoyment of your nice things, USE IT! You live once guys. When you die, someone else is gonna get your toys. Let them have it in used condition.
