After last weeks excitement with the arrival of my new french oven, I was even more excited about the arrival of my 12" skillet yesterday - again got everything ready to cook something in it to try it out. This time, it arrived well before dog-walking time.....but had a big crack down one side!! I mean, this crack went all the way through the cast iron!! I shudder to think what sort of violent abuse this poor pan went through before it arrived at my house, I felt quite upset for it
. Now I have to go through the hassle of sending it back and waiting for a replacement - Oh Bother!!!
