I'm kind of on the fence for either cast iron or ceramic. What do y'all recommend? A few questions:

1) I hear that cast iron can actually be good for you, because of the iron that leeches into your food. Is this form of iron "natural"? Does our body recognize it as the same iron that it gets from, oh say, a nice juicy steak?

2) How big of a hassle is it to season it all the time?

3) Is ceramic cookware REALLY safe? I feel as though it would depend on the brand. Is there a standard brand that is known to be the best?
