You may automatically gravitate toward a Dutch oven or a casserole because so many of them are available, but the enameled cast-iron skillet has several advantages. First, it’s not as heavy as the other two pieces, so it’s easier to handle. Second, it’s shallower, which makes it much easier to work with and turn chops, chicken pieces, ground beef, and the like. Third, it doesn’t need any special care or have to be seasoned, as does standard cast iron, and, you can make anything from pan pizza to cornbread in it. If you do a lot of frying or sautéing, don’t need a heavy lid, and don’t want excess weight, the enameled cast-iron skillet is a terrific choice. Look for one that’s safe to use with metal utensils so you can use it with whatever you have on hand in your kitchen.
