    Induction Hob - Rectangular Cast Iron Griddle and Stir-fry Wok Recommendations

    Hello All, We have recently installed an induction hob (from a 5 burner gas).

    Enameled Cast Iron Cookware

    Until recently, I've never got on well with enameled cast iron cook ware. My friend has a set of Le Creuset and I use that quite a lot when I stay with him.

    I am the type of person who tries to have everything in moderation but have recently noticed that I am more tired. I have been eating a lot more fruit ever since the hot weather started and have not been craving seafood or any kind of heavier food. I later found out that I am lacking iron and my...
