question about using cast iron skillet on gas stove

shorty68 | Oct 17, 2011 07:00 AM

I have a gas stove and am trying to use a 12 inch Lodge cast iron skillet. Since cast iron does not conduct heat well, the edges of the pan don't get hot. Does anyone have any advice on what I can do so that I have a bigger cooking surface? I don't want to put my skillet into the oven to pre-warm it.

I have some dishes which require stir frying in a skillet. If I can not solve the above problem, I will have to purchase a stainless steel skillet.
