    Thank you so much for your tips. I'll give my Lodge more go's on my stove. I've used it like 4 times total xD

    Yup, like cast iron. Made in the USA.

    Or my 45 years or older cast iron pans that I have had forever.

    I do need new pans, though. I'm still using the non-stick T-Fal that was given to me as a wedding present 5 years ago. I want to get cast iron pans, but can't afford it. I'm hoping I'll get some money this Christmas and can get a new 10" cast iron skillet.

    Cast iron skillets last forever. Check thrift stores. Even if they are well used they can be cleaned up, de-rusted, and re-seasoned. They last a lifetime.

    T-fal is probably the only non-stick I trust. I have one teeny T-fal pan which will hold exactly two eggs.

    I had the same concerns about cast iron giving me too much iron.

    But I got one anyways, simply because the enameled pans were too expensive. Thinking of checking my iron levels in the future, just in case. But I'm not that concerned. Iron leaching into my food is better than PFOA/PTFE, aluminum, or nickel (from stainless steel).
