You would be surprised at how many cast iron skillets that company sells. If you are at the rest stop in Georgia or Tennessee there are pamphlets about the place. They sell serious cast iron cookware.

If accomplishment means making money hand over fist, then YES.

modern light weight pots and pans are coated with TFE and other substances that will prove, in the long run, to be detrimental to humans. meanwhile heavy old cast iron skillets will continue to provide an excellent cooking surface and are so well made they are passed on from generation to generation.

Nick Offferman is not Ron Swanson.
Upon voting in the 2020 Democratic Party presidential primaries in his home state of California, Offerman tweeted a photo of himself with an "I Voted" sticker, adding the caption "#VoteWarren", referring to the Democratic Senator from Massachusetts and then-presidential candidate, Elizabeth Warren.[24] In June 2020, he tweeted his support for Charles Booker, a progressive Democratic candidate in the U.S. Senate Democratic primary in Kentucky.
Now, granted, it may be fair to have a conversation about how actors portraying asshats can normalise asshattery for people who aren't smart enough to get the joke, but Offerman is definitely not like Swanson.

Well, whoop de farking doo. His public persona is still pushing people toward the free American individualist bullshiat. "I'm not actually like that - I just get paid to promote that ethos" is not an honorable position.

A nice, big, perfectly-seasoned cast Iron skillet is a dream to cook on.  In addition to a razor sharp santoku knife and a fire extinguisher, it's one of the three essential, mandatory tools in my kitchen.

I plan entire meals around cooking in my skillet.
