Maybe it's because my parents and grandparents cooked with them but I LOVE cooking with cast iron. True, they are heavy. One of my pans is four inches deep and is perfect for cooking up a large batch of sausage gravy and feels like it weighs 40 pounds when full! That's okay, I can use the excersize anyway! They are not, however, great for cooking on the fly cuz they take a long time to heat up and a long time to cool down. Some of my pans were "broken in" about a hundred years ago so I haven't had to worry about that. By now, I'm sure you all think I'm a raving lunatic (you'd be right) but I thought I would offer my unqualified opinion! :D

Hi Lisa,

I just read your post. Here is a useful site which explains how to care for your cast iron pans:

Lisa, I think you understand by now you won some wonderful cookware. Cast iron cookware is kind of like "baking" - there are a few rules but once you know them the care and storage of them is a breeze.

If your Le Crueset is totally covered with enamel there is no seasoning involved. If you really, really, really hate them I'll pay for shipping and you can send them to me

(oh, that's my happy dance)
