New kitchen needs new pans! No, it’s not the main reason. We needed new pans cause we are more than we were 5 years ago when I bought my first Cast Iron pans! I bought them on eBay.de and don’t know the manufacturer. That was a Frying Pan Set of 3 Iron Skillet in sizes: 15 cm, 20 cm and 25cm (6″, 8″ & 10″). Way too small for the family of five!
Since I’m the huge fan of natural, plastic-free things I love cast iron! And big was my surprise when I received new Cast Iron Pans from Ukraine (I bought them in Latvia, but they are manufactured in Ukraine) and I didn’t need to spend the time to develop coating (previous pans was Pre-seasoned with natural oils) I washed them and heated up and then let them cool down.
After that, they work better than the previous set ever did! I’m surprised. By the look of Ukraine cast iron it isn’t that smooth, maybe that is the reason that they are better than the previous set. Interesting.
