Is there one pot, pan or other item you turn to again and again? It need not be fancy - just one you always find yourself reaching for?
For me it's my vintage cast iron deep black skillet with matching cast iron lid. I always leave it on the stove because I seem to use it almost everyday. Because it's deeper than a traditional skillet it works for things (like sauces or large batches of things) that a shallow or traditional skillet might not work for. It's certainly not my "fanciest" piece of cookware - but is the most used and loved.
what about you?
