Get a cast iron skillet. Your grandchildren will fight over it when you’re dead.
The whole time I was growing up, my dad did all the cooking. Well, except for Sundays when he left my mom in charge (we usually ate hot dogs or pizza on Sundays).
My dad’s favorite frying pan was a cast iron skillet. We had all kinds of pots and pans, but he always reached for that one. He said it was perfectly and divinely “seasoned”. Just about every cooking lesson he ever gave me involved the use of that cherished utensil.
I’ll have to admit – EVERYTHING cooked in that skillet turned out great (not to mention “delicious”).
And by the way, don’t ever wash a cast iron skillet. I got caught once as I was about to immerse that little treasured gem into a sink full of soapy water. I can still picture my dad leaping up from his spot at the kitchen table and grabbing my wrist right before the big “dunk”.
You would have thought I was about to soak his prize hunting rifle! What did I know?! All the other dishes got washed.
Dad told me I was about to RUIN his favorite skillet forever. All you’re supposed to do for proper maintenance, apparently, is wipe it out with a paper towel or cloth after each use. Go figure.
So by now you’re wondering, what does a cast iron skillet have to do with online marketing and growing your business?
My dad’s EXPERTISE was cooking and he used the very BEST TOOLS for getting desired results.
