Are corn stick pans a thing I wasn’t aware of? Why not just make cornbread in a skillet?

Am I the weird one

Nice collection you got there. I in the process of stocking up myself,lol. Wife and I are soon to inherit some cast iron pots that are well seasoned back from her Grandmother. Can't wait to burn some meat and veggies in those.

I have a cornstick cast iron as well, but I think mine may be mini cornsticks. It was my grandmother's. I never use it. I have a mini muffin pan and the iron cornbread wedge pan. I use those for cornbread from time to time. Same method of heating the pan and then adding the oil or bacon grease and heating that before putting the batter in.

Your collection is awesome. Sadly, my collection was brutalized by the 2016 Louisiana flood. I kept every piece. Next year I will have recovered from the flood, cleaned and seasoned my antique cook ware.

Cheers everyone - my Thanksgiving feast has started and has my home smelling very savory.

The dutch oven and square griddle have to go, MD. They've been tainted by that coozie.

I have a 12 qt dutch oven, a 12 inch skillet, a 7 qt oval, and 6 and 8 inch saucepans, all of them from my grandmothers. My mom and dad have THEIR grandparents' cast iron which will some day be mine.

I hope they keep them many more years.

Neva enough, baw. I noticed you’ve got an induction cooktop. How do you like it? Thinking about putting one in instead of gas.

Not an Induction. Standard elements under glass.

Sam's sells a single burner induction unit that I am trying to talk myself out of buying. I think it is about $50 or $75. Which is not a lot to spend in order to try one out. Or at least that is what I continue to think as a reason that it would be not so bad to buy it.



My understanding is that people who have it really like it. Someone here (Salmon? Napoleon?) has one. They always say it works very well. Excellent temperature control. Quick to heat and cool and works great at low heat settings.

Still working on my collection. Could have had one like that 22 inch but didn't take it because I didn't want to beat the rust off of it. That was a couple of years ago and now I regret it.

This is our collection thus far.

well the only negative with cast iron is leftovers. if you leave something in a cast iron pot it starts tasting like iron, not so much by just overnight the next day, but by day 3 it has a strong iron flavor in whatever food is left in the pot.

long as you store it in some other dish and just use cast iron for cooking, there is nothing better

I actually have one of the single burners that I bought from Amazon. I really like it but was curious about jumping in on a 36” cooktop.

I regret that I upvoted before I saw the koozie. Now I'm going to have to post, refresh, and change my vote.


All said, I think only the corncob pan is excessive.

MY wife and I probably have a similar number of cast iron pieces... four various sized skillets, two enameled dutch ovens, square ridged grill skillet, and an aebleskiver pan. Plus a cast iron grill press and cast iron heat deflector for the BGE, but those are stretching the term "cookware" in my opinion.

i have
- 8" skillet (passed down from great grandmother)
- 8" lodge someone gave us as a gift and find i end up using both 8's at the same time so glad to have it
- 5" skillet (i think..its got a 5 on it and is a bazillion years old)
- the big arse rectangular lodge griddle/steak piece that goes over both burners and weighs about 55 pounds
- square griddle pan (lodge)
- enamel dutch oven
- enamel skillet with lid (gift from FiL)

i also have an entire emerilware set and...i use the pots for pasta and boiling potatoes and thats about it.

the cast iron gets used every single day. sad really, the emerilware hardly ever comes out of the drawer although i use the emerilware lids for the cast iron

Who are the 5 poor souls who would downvote that?

I'm a little bit jealous, maybe that was it.

Our collection isn't huge, but I have the basics covered. Only thing I'm missing is a dutch oven of some sort. I have a large one that I bought new about 15 years ago, and a small one a couple of years after that. I think an 8 and a 12. My grandmother passed away in 2007, and I have one of her 8 inch ones. It is all crusty on the outside, but it is my go to for small cornbread. Decades worth of cooking in that one.

I bought one of the square skillets with ridges for some reason about 6-8 years ago. It is a Lodge and I saw it on sale at a HomeGoods or TJ Maxx. Like $10, so why not. My other grandmother passed a few years ago, and my older sister made it to her house before I did the week of Thanksgiving when my parents and relatives were finally cleaning out their house. She had a round flat skillet with no walls on it that she used as a biscuit pan. I really wanted it, but I guess I can't be too upset that my sister got it, even if she is a so-so cook and hardly ever uses it. I ended up getting another large skillet and a small-fry that is square. Perfect single grilled cheese pan. I think 5 inch at the most, and this thing is ancient.

So final count is two large, one old and one "new", two small, one old and one "new", a griddle pan and the small fry.
