Cast Iron pans are great for searing and outdoor cooking as it holds heat better even if outside temperature fluctuates. If you season your cast iron pan, it can work almost like non-stick pan without chemical coating. It is not easy to maintain cookware though, as it can rust or create acidic food reaction if food is kept in cast iron pan for long time.

This creates a win-win situation for heat conducting of cast iron without the acidic food reactivity and almost works a non-stick surface.

Le Creuset Classic Enameled Cast-Iron 6-Piece Cookware Set
Ratings: 5 Stars
Le Creuset cookware set comes with four of its most well-used cast-iron cookware items in this excellent cookware set. Each heavy cast-iron piece heats evenly and comes coated with hard porcelain enamel for superior performance, and is attractive and durable enough to go straight from the stovetop or oven to the table, which I simply love. Colors (many available) are bright, fun and decorative, yet cookware is great quality and hard working to make food cook evenly on stove top or oven.
