I checked out Slice of Kitchen's old article comparing some oven safe cookware, and liked the look of these two. They're kind of an unfair comparison, since one is a set and the other is an individual pan, but it is what it is. I'm admittedly a little intimidated by the seasoning required, and the weight of cast iron, but it just seems like a more solid option.
What is your experience with stove/oven cookware? Are these as good as the article makes them sound? How about tips for taking care of new cast iron (and of course I'll look over any instructions included with new cookware)?
