What is the difference between cast iron and stainless steel, and why would I choose one
over the other?

Cast iron is a remarkably durable material, known for its efficient and even heating. It is best for braising, baking, roasting and soups. Our tri-ply stainless steel is also durable and efficient, but these pans are best for sautèing and shallow frying. Both materials are versatile and essential parts of a well-stocked kitchen.
