Some question cookware like Dutch oven and Cast iron skillet

Hi, I got some question about Dutch oven and Cast iron skillet. I want to learn some receipt that require the use of such.

I get one of those Jewel promotion of Thomas Professional Dutch Oven but it is not one fo those cast iron but non-stick one. I read the box and it say that the glass lid used in over up to 350 degree. If I want to cook something that only need 325 degree, it should be safe to use?

In addition, where can I buy decent quality but cheap cast iron skillet that can be put intop the oven?

    If the instructions say it's safe up to 350 degrees, you should be fine at 325. Also, I got my Lodge cast iron skillet from amazon for around $25. You'll have to browse around for the best deal with free shipping. Hope that helps.

      Amazon is good for cast iron purchases, although their prices change - ranging from good to to expensive. (they are currently pretty high). Walmart carries a good selection of Lodge skillets at good prices. Katom.com has a complete selection of Lodge cast iron at good prices, but you will pay to ship..

        And, unless you can qualify for free shipping, Amazon could be pretty high. Also yard sales etc are great for Lodge.
