I love my cast iron pots & pans, and I'll never buy anything else. If you get the pans hot enough, you don't have to use very much oil at all. I make an oven-fried chicken in one of my cast iron skillets, and it's delicious. (Remove the chicken skin, dip chicken in milk, dredge in a mix of bread crumbs, flour, cornmeal & any spices you like. Heat up the skillet for about 7-10 minutes in the oven (450-475 deg), put a couple of tablespoons of oil in the skillet, let it heat up a minute or two more, and then put in the chicken. It will sizzle when you put it in the pan. Spray with oil. Cook for about 20-25 minutes per side. When you flip it, use a spatula to be sure you don't leave the crust on the bottom of the pan).
