Cast iron has been my go-to cookware for many years, and if I had to pick one type of pan to have in my kitchen, it would be a couple of cast iron skillets, grill pan, and dutch oven.
I purchased the square, 10.5 inch grill pan from FS Kitchen, and I’m extremely overjoyed with how well it cooks food. This one arrived pre-seasoned and ready to use. It’s easy to clean and store with my other pots and pans. The grill pan is durable, and pretty much indestructible.
This grill pan is great for multiple uses like: stove-top, grill, oven, or campfire. Terrific for searing meats and the ribbed shape allows fats to drain away from the food. Also, the ribbed shape adds grill marks to foods like polish and smoked sausage.
These types of pans are cheap in price considering they will literally last a lifetime. I have one cast iron skillet that belonged to my grandmother, and it looks and cooks great. There’s not a single piece of kitchen equipment I could recommend more.

Hair Straightener Brush
I like the colors and design of the brush. I find the one touch operation simple, but it’s very effective on my hair. The brush takes good care of my hair when I am using it. There is no scalding, or static left behind, and it’s great at getting tangles out, and no hair breakage. It’s a sleek much-functional unit with an ergonomic heat resistant handle and ceramic iron brush. The cord swivels 360 degrees which makes styling a breeze, and I love how the brush messages my scalp while I’m brushing my hair.
The unit has a blue back-lit LCD with 6 temperature settings from 330 to 430 degrees, and there is an auto shut-off safety feature. I use a heat protectant spray before styling my hair, and find this works best for my hair. The brush locks in moisture, and leaves my hair smooth and shiny. Easier to use than a normal hair straightener and quicker too! It creates a salon finish each and every time. I love it for this reason, and it’s cheaper than going to the salon to get my hair styled.
