They Said Cast Iron Pans Are Great For Cooking, But Here’s What They Didn’t Tell You

The only thing that gets into your food when you use a cast iron pan is, you probably guess it – iron (which you need every day anyway!).

The World Health Organization estimates that 80% of people in the world are iron deficient.

Some symptoms include shortness of breath, weakness, fatigue, headaches, and pale skin.

Better yet, a typical cast iron pan will only run you about $40 and will last a lot longer than a stainless steel pan!

The best way to clean a cast iron pan is to use warm water and a sponge, try to avoid soap (especially if you have seasoned the pan) as it ruins it.

When you season your cast iron pan, you are making it non stick (naturally).
