Through the years I have used many different pots and pans to do my cooking.  I've had cheap skillets, aluminum based pots, T-Fal
(a  really good one) and some old "Guardian Service" picked up from yard sales.  Somehow I always find myself going back to my ole' cast iron skillets. 

Cast iron really heats everything evenly, and for frying, it just can't be beat!  I don't even know if it's possible to fry potatoes in anything else, at least to my liking.

Cast iron has one problem;  you aren't supposed to wash it and when you do it can rust.  I don't know about you, but wiping out a skillet I've cooked in just doesn't feel clean.  The solution:  I wash in a mild soap and water and dry immediatly.  After drying I coat my skillets with a spray on oil like "Pam".  I never have rust spots and best of all, my skillets are always ready for their next use.
