Dishes That Are Not Suitable for a Cast-Iron Skillet

Eggs are the worst item to cook in a new cast-iron skillet because it's porous.


Once your cast-iron pan is seasoned, you can produce the best fried eggs. 

Soft fish like sole, cod, flounder, and salmon adhere to the pan and make a mess.


After cooking any fish, deep clean and season your pan to avoid a fishy flavor in your next dish.

Cast-iron skillets and pans are porous and retain flavors unless seasoned and cleaned.


An large cookie skillet or brownie sounds delicious, but after a meal, you should clean your cast-iron skillet before making dessert.

When creating a rich tomato sauce, wine-braised meat, or lemon-based marinade, use a stainless steel or ceramic pot or skillet.
