your food will cook better and more evenly and your cookware will last much much longer that way.
dude i ALWAYS used to put my pans directly on high heat. you could actually see fumes/smoke coming from the nonstick coating before i even put anything on them

thanks for the great steak recipe. that's how they should be done inside! we need a cast iron cooking thread!
I have the Lodge 12", 3.25" deep cast iron skillet to make fried chicken in. there's also the same model but with a cover but I just use an oil splash guard.

I also have a smaller 8", 1.75" deep skillet that I sometimes will use on the grill if I want to heat something that may fall through the grill.

Heaven forbid you would've bought a metal one.

Cookware can add up fast but I 100% agree with Valmont Calphon is the way to go and a must for any kitchen is that flat top.

My Ride: Is in a salvage yard
I bought a counter top/plug-in skillet from some department store (Belk, JC Penny, Macys) about 4 months ago. This sucker still looks brand new and I use it atleast 2-3 times a week I can cook an entire pound of bacon on it all at once. It also makes it super easy to make eggs and philly cheese steaks.
If you eat a lot of frozen pizza, like me, invest in a "Pizza Stone" it's super easy to clean and nothing ever sticks to it. (It's basically a round pan for your oven made of stone)
