It will quickly reach high temperature, necessary to create the “Maillard reaction”, a cooking process which will crust and sear perfectly your meat while keeping and improving the flavor of the meat juices. It’s ideal as well to brown your potatoes and vegetables, grill, fry or deep fry anything with greater result and control against “burning them”.
Healthy cooking material, iron pans have no coating but will nonetheless develop natural nonstick properties with time and a process called “seasoning”, which will protect them as well from rust.
