Cast iron pot and pans have come back and many ppl are using it now since they are safer. You get little iron in your cooked food which is extra benefit. I also got few and use now and then .
Have you tried them ? Lodge cast iron is good. Price is affordable to everyone and it will last life time.
New cast iron kadai in picture . Friend recommended it and I had to get it . Perfect size for me. Made my favorite potato poha in it.
Oh and it will give some arm work out too since they are heavy. Be careful touching it since it gets hot .
