I have tried several times to love the black cast iron skillets...really tried

I found them very hard to care for, too heavy and each time ended up selling them to folks who grabbed them up like they were a priceless object. Each time, I felt like a failure. A few years ago, I tested a pan for All Clad with the new LD technology (hope I have that right) and found it a perfect saute, browning pan. Not too heavy and if you use them with medium heat, and let them cool prior to placing water in them, they are a breeze to clean, require no seasoning, and do not stick.
I still love seeing them used on TV and listen to folks who swear by them, but I guess they are just not for me. Just last year, I, (again) sold three of them from Lodge, and the lady who bought them 15 minutes after I had posted on a neighborhood app called Next Door, knocked on my door, and was so thrilled to have been there first. sigh :(
