What does a Kiwi summer smell like? It has to be the mouthwatering aroma of a thick, juicy steak sizzling away on a cast iron skillet.
Cast iron has no comparison for its superior searing ability and caramelising effect on both meat and vegetables.
Pre-seasoned cast iron skillets and griddles from renowned American foundry Lodge are essential kit for the barbeque, the open fire and in the kitchen.
The factory pre-seasoning gives them a black easy-care patina that would otherwise take years to achieve at home.
