There are so many reasons I love having a gas stove. Probably the main reason is that I can cook even if the electricity is off but a close second is how my cast iron cookware performs on a gas flame.
Several of my pots are slick as glass and nothing sticks. I love being able to cook an egg without it sticking at all.
And bake biscuits without the bottoms burning. Now, if the cook just wouldn’t walk away with the broiler on, the tops wouldn’t scorch either.
The mess left behind from cooking the eggs . . oh, I guess I should say that I don’t eat the whites – just the yolks so I only cook the yolks.
I wipe the mess out with a paper towel (that does leave behind lint) and it’s ready to be used next time. I’ll wipe it with a damp lint free rag before I use it. No use messing up a rag no because it’s so gritty and dusty here, that I always wipe or rinse my pots and dishes before using them, even if it’s just been one day since I used them.
I’d give up my Instant Pot before I’d give up my cast iron but I hope I never have to give either of them up.
