She had a difficult time adjusting to the heat of the gas and the thickness of her pans that took up longer to heat. But she still managed to make some fantastic meals. I still say it is the cook, not the pan or stove, or even the type of heat that determines the quality of a meal.
I too learned how to cook on a wood stove.
My mother was a superb home cook.
We also had thin pans from the Depression days.
I have the old heavy CI pot with lid.

My favorite cast irons are the large, heavy griddles. Whether square or round I use them as a comal every taco Tuesday! I actually use the 14" round flat griddle a lot.
