Southern Living - 5 Kitchen tools you need this Spring

Smithey Ironware No. 10 Cast Iron Skillet: There has been a flurry of new-wave cast-iron skillets as of late, but we haven't been impressed enough to add one to our collection until now. With an air hockey table-smooth finish and a no-nonsense design, this Charleston-forged skillet has become our new go-to for everything from one-dish dinners to cornbread with a crazy crispy exterior. While the 10-inch has served us well, we're eyeing the 12-inch for extra surface space to sear chicken thighs and cowboy steaks.
