      Yes -- iron is used for cooking. I had a cast iron frypan for
      years. The traditional Aussie barbeque plate is an iron (well,
      steel) plough disk. Cheap iron pots and pans fron India and
      China readily available in camping store and chinese markets.
      Don't bother the silicone.
