Learn to cook it all in cast iron!

The cast-iron skillet, that sturdy, versatile, traditional kitchen workhorse, is being rediscovered by today's savvy home cooks. It is an essential multitasker that 85% of us own but far fewer of us reach for daily, mostly because we have one or two recipes we use it for and that's it. Enter the experts at America's Test Kitchen, who have perfected the classic dishes everyone knows and loves (steak, perfect fried eggs, cornbread) but have also developed 120 surprising, and inspiring recipes (skillet apple pie, pizza, cinnamon swirl bread) that will move your cast iron to the front of the cabinet.

If you only own one pan, make it a cast-iron skillet. This inexpensive, timeless tool will produce an enviable crust on steaks, roast chicken, pizza, cornbread, and more. In this new cookbook, the editors of Cook's Country will show you everything you need to know about cast-iron cookware and the many (and often surprising) dishes you can cook and bake in this versatile pan. Learn about the history of cast iron and what makes this pan uniquely American; let us show you how to shop for, season, care for, and clean cast-iron cookware. Stop underestimating this unassuming tool and see what cast iron can do in your kitchen. Discover solutions to common cast iron cooking challenges like skillets that become stinky or sticky; stir-fries, eggs, and fish that won't release from the pan; and delicate foods that burn before they cook through. We'll show you how to make cast-iron classics like perfectly seared steaks and beautifully browned pancakes as well as more surprising recipes such as pizza, cakes, skillet pies, pasta, artisan breads, and more. Full-color photos of every recipe show you exactly how your dish will turn out and reference photos guide you every step of the way.
