TOP 5: Inexpensive Cast Iron Cookware

Updated: Jul 26, 2020


I wasn't always a fan of cooking. But necessity is the mother of invention and once I got married I used my inadequate pots and pans to start my journey as the cook of the house. I often remember Hema Malini's frustration in Satte Pe Satta when the brothers destroy the food she so diligently and lovingly spread on the table. Grateful everyday that I don't have THAT drama in my life. But pots and pans do help, and as time went by and health became a big component to my cooking, aluminium pots were given away and I welcomes stainless steel and iron. However recently I popped into a mall to see Cast Iron Pots. I was shocked at the price of them but slowly with lots of searching discovered a few inexpensive alternatives were are as good if not better than the over priced Cast Iron Cookware.

In full disclosure, these links are affiliates, I may earn a percentage (at no cost to you) this goes to support my writing work, video and content creation online and groceries for home.

The reason I like these are that they are large but manageable. The 5500ml is a little smaller than the 7700ml but its nice because it and its lid fit nicely into the larger casserole. All these are GAS | INDUCTION | OVEN friendly.
