BLACK POT is the term popularly used in the south to refer to cast iron cookware.
With time and proper care a well-seasoned cast iron skillet becomes a non-stick pan.
Every time you cook in a black pot IRON is going into your food. I cook EVERYTHING (but tomato sauce) in them and have never been anemic, even during my pregnancies.
Pick one up season it well (yes, I wash mine, soap is ok to use) and reap the many benefits.
- Every time you use one your arm gets a work-out.
- Non-stick surface pan that is NOT toxic.
- Iron rich food with every meal.
