Q: My boyfriend and I are planning to move in together. We both have our own set of cast iron pans. His items have been used for gluten-ful foods, but I’m on a gluten free diet and my cast iron has never been touched by gluten. How can I mark my pans so that we don’t have to worry about cross contamination?

Editor: What about tying some metal wire around the handles on your skillets? Maybe even just an un-bent paperclip twisted around the thinnest part of the handle or looped through the hole in the handle?

Readers, what suggestions do you have?
