Cast-iron cookware retains heat for a long time, which is especially important for dishes that take a long time to cook. They heat up slowly but evenly over the entire surface area and therefore do not need to be stirred frequently.
A cast iron casan is used for cooking various oriental dishes (e.g. plov). Food cooked in the kazan is removed from the flames before it is ready and left to mature in its own juices. The grill pan's ribbed base reduces the need for oil in food preparation. This type of pan is designed for juicy meats, fish dishes, shrimps, squid and vegetables. The classic frying pan is designed for frying food. Pans can have different diameters and different wall heights. The roasters are designed for braising meat, poultry and vegetables.
