Broiling made easy

Fine Cooking Issue 92

I always forget to move my oven racks before the oven has heated, making the job more difficult and dangerous. When this happens, I invert my large cast-iron skillet onto the middle oven rack and set the item to be broiled on top of it. It provides a stable base and keeps my frustration to a minimum.

    I would never treat my cast iron cookware this way. They are too valuable and heat at that temperature could damage the cast iron. If I forget to move the rack I would use my hot oven mitts to avoid injury.
