It's done. One click of a mouse and I am now the proud owner of my own cast iron pot. I have wanted one of these for months. Martha Stewart and the cooks at Everyday Food constantly taunt me by cooking with theirs. They don't even address the issue that the great amount of cooks in the world can't afford their $150 La Creuset. I sit watching their show, saddened that I will never make their stove top to oven stews and soups. They saute their onions and pour in their chicken stock. I sigh.
Alas, today notmartha.org brightened my world. This Chefmate cast iron pot is available for only $32 at amazon.com.
Apparently the knob will only allow for cooking up to 350 degrees, but that's the only downfall I have detected. Can anyone recommend a recipe for me to make first?
