    If all I had was my Cast Iron 12" skillet and my 4 qt Dutch Oven, I would be just fine

    I never got the coffee aspect of it, it just doesn't taste right to my Yankee palate.

    I do love me some grits though. Hard to find good ones up here sometimes, have to settle for Bobs Red Mill which are sort of $$.

    Is it possible you meant it would compare to a consommé ? :p

    I agree, but a lot of people, even the ones who think they know, just don't know how to or want to bother with cast or carbon. They don't want to take the time or do what it takes to make it good because someones sisters brothers uncles cousin said to do it "this" way on the internet. Then, they want to make upkeep difficult, and nothing could be simpler.
    My mom has some of those copper coated pans, and they are really nice. They aren't from Walmart.
    Most of the items Wally carries are thin starter products. They are cheap in every way. T FAL has always seemed quite anemic to me, but I grew up a little different than many.

    I used to be one of the people you describe until I actually used my cast iron. Once they had a good seasoning and I discovered the right amount of heat to use, I found them to be very easy to clean and maintain. I use them just about every day now.

    When I was a very young and rookie EMT, maybe 19 years old, the Chief of EMS would get to headquarters about 6:30 AM to start our shift at 7:00 AM, terribly hung over. He would lie down in the sleeping quarters for about an hour, get up, ask me if anything was happening on the radio, and if not, give me a few bucks to go to the department's favorite/close restaurant and get us both a bacon and fried egg sandwich on toast with a side of hash browns. When I got back with the breakfast, he had always showered, shaved, and changed into the sharpest creased uniform ever seen. Ready to rock and roll.

    I don’t care if she uses a hot rock, as long as my grilled cheese sandwich comes out on time.

    It’s like a sin to cook breakfast in a non cast iron skillet.

    Great!

    I'll take 6 eggs, over easy, 10 strips of bacon, 2 pieces of toast, and hash browns please!

    Would a grapefruit to boot be too much to ask?

    I have spent hours and hours learning to flip eggs ala Waffle House. How do you cast iron guys turn the eggs over ?
