Cook It In Cast Iron: Kitchen Tested Recipes for the One Pan That Does It All by America's Test Kitchen is a wonderful book full of recipes, tips, information, seasoning, troubleshooting, cleaning, and evaluations and recommendations of cast-iron pans. Cook It In Cast-Iron is from the editors of Americas's Test Kitchen, which means that you can count on the fact that every recipe in the book is rigorously tested and tasted until they arrive at the "best version." They are also known for testing cookware products. America's Test Kitchen calls the cast-iron pan "The Original Workhorse" and they believe that a "cast-iron skillet belongs in every kitchen." That's quite a testimony!
