Mario Batali is a world renowned celebrity chef and restaurateur, famous for his inspired and unique approaches to Italian cuisine. His experience in kitchens during TV shows and dinner rushes have granted him a sense of comfort cooking just about anywhere; but for the rest of us, he has created a line of cookware that brings the professional quality of restaurant kitchens into our own homes. This 8 inch Skillet is made from solid cast iron and is coating in enamel, so there is no need for you to season the metal before using. The high edges and thick bottom means that this pan will build a lot of heat and hold it evenly, allowing for quick cooking without any hotspots, every time. It is perfect for pan frying and sauteing. If you use it for searing, you will be able to go straight from stove top to oven to finish off large pieces of meat quickly and easily. Do not stop using your skillet after dinner though, since it is cast iron you can also use it for baking.
