    Default Which pan: cast iron or flavorstone or stonedine

    We need a large frying pan to replace our teflon one. We have a little cast iron pan and were thinking of getting the same in a larger size, but I've read about the possibility of eating too much iron if the pan isn't seasoned correctly so started looking into the stonedine/flavorstone pans... but they don't have good reviews so now... I DON'T KNOW!!

    What do you use?

    Thanks.

    I have the flavorstone set. It was a birthday present and I love it! I haven't had any issues with them. I bought the oven tray recently and it's fab!

    We bought a Le Creuset Teflon pan. Got it at Myer when they had 30% off but it was till a bit of an investment. We've had it for about 8. Months now and we love it. We decided on this one because they have a lifetime warranty. Went through the care instructions with the sales girl- don't heat it to high, never heat it dry and don't put it in the sink when hot- and the pan is still as smooth as the day we bought it. We got sick of pans lasting 3 months before stuff started sticking to them and I'm really happy we went this way.

    (Kept and photocopied the receipt in case of fading. Have filed that along with the warranty card in case we need it. Warranty can be done through Myer so it's not a hassle)

    Cast iron - I have all the le creuset enamel and cast iron pans - I've always used them and we all have perfect iron levels!

    I have a flavourstone, utter crap didn't last at all. I'll be getting some cast iron and enamel cookware- you pay through the nose, but we have an cast iron French oven that we have had for around 6 or 7 years and it is still going strong.

    Cast iron for sure, they cook so evenly, we'll worth the extra care and $$$$..

    I have flavourstone, great to start with but doesn't last over time, blue has darkened and doesn't heat as well as it once did.

    I have a Le Creseut crockpot and saucepan. I like the crockpot for soups. Not a fan of using the saucepan to pan fry as I find the food sticks . For me they just don't have the non stick quality of Teflon. However I am not a great cook so maybe not using it correctly.. . Also they are really heavy and pita to clean.

    I use scanpan frypans and cast iron french ovens and roasting dishes. I have very old saucepans of no particular brand.
