WHY WE LIKE THIS CAST IRON SKILLET BY KARIBE 

  • Ideal for frying, baking, and searing.  Cast Iron browns meats so well.  The heavy weight is ideal for finishing dishes in the oven. 

  • Durable—  Cast Iron is heavy and since the pan is one piece there is no issue with a loose handle.  Just be sure to always use a hot pad when cooking with a cast iron. 

  • It has a Pot hook which provide storage space– Please note this is a heavy pot so the hook must be able to accommodate.  We won’t be using this feature as we don’t have pot hooks and will most likely leave it on the stove since we will be using the pan daily. 

  • Nonstick— Not all cast iron skillets come nonstick.  The first time we used it , it was super easy to clean even with the sticky egg and cheese mixture we made.   My daughter made a skillet cookie and it also came out easily. 

  • Healthy Cooking: Possibly one of the greatest cast iron skillet health benefits is that it adds iron to your food. 

  • High Quality Cast Iron means it is also Chemical-Free.  So they are a great alternative to nonstick pans that are coated and these chemicals can leak into your food. 

  • GREAT PRICE:  Cast Iron is cheaper than Stainless Steel and Karibe offers fair prices on all their skillets.  The 10″ Skillet is great size to start with as its very versatile for many recipes. 

Be sure to look for the Karibe seal on the cookware.
