Durable, like cast iron
Using cast iron in the kitchen is something I love. We have a dutch oven and skillet and have found it is really all we need to cook. Everything just tastes better when cooked in cast iron but, for me, the real appeal lies in it's durability. We have all seen those cast iron pieces in antique stores and vintage shops that have long outlasted their first owners and sit, dignified, awaiting new lives.
The idea of longevity, resilience, strength, sturdiness all stir me. Forever.
