It’s no secret the Men’s Health team thinks cast iron skillets are essential for every guy. They’re ideal for cooking steak, fish, veggies, and even reheating pizza. Plus, the cooking method has its health benefits too: you’ll get a dose of healthy fats from seasoning the skillet with oil as well as iron.
Even better, cast iron skillets are affordable. Right now, Amazon has some major deals on three Cuisinel pans that will help elevate your kitchen gear.
Love making brunch at home? This cast iron pan is perfect for whipping up crepes, pancakes and eggs. And unlike deeper skillets, this pan is lightweight and makes clean up a breeze. One Amazon reviewer swears that this pan is the key to making the perfect crispy quesadillas.
Looking for one pan that truly does it all? This 2-in-1 multi-cooker cast iron set includes a three-quart pan and 10-inch frying pan with lid. Use the three-quart pan as a dutch oven for baking bread. The larger pan is perfect for cooking steak or frying chicken.
Skip roasting and make a big pot of sautéed veggies in a cast iron pot for a meal you can enjoy in minutes. This Dutch oven set is large enough to roast chickens, and the lid doubles as a skillet, so you get two products in one. You can easily whip up warm stews and chili using the Dutch oven during the colder months. During summer, that lightweight skillet is ideal for cooking a steak in lieu of an outdoor grill.
