Home > Correctly seasoning of cast iron cookware

Cast iron cookware has been around since our grandparents learned to cook. It is the number one choice in cookware and can last a lifetime. Made of molten iron Cast Iron Cookware is versatile, durable and easy to clean. It is capable of withstanding high temperatures and retaining that heat to thoroughly cook your foods and keep dinner warm while you are setting the table. This is why cast iron is used in the very best of restaurants and is favored by the professionals. What’s more, Improper care also promotes rust occurring on your cookware as well. However, with the proper maintenance of your cookware, it can last for generations.


Below are instructions to properly season or treatment your new Cast Iron Cookware:


1. Wash your cookware with warm soapy water and use a Brillo pad or steel wool to scrub the cookware well. This will help to loosen and release the prior treatment used by manufacturers or any residing rust.


2. Rinse your cookware thoroughly to ensure that the particles that you have scrubbed off are no longer present.


3. Thoroughly dry your pan or pot to ensure that there is no moisture left. It may help to heat it on the stove top for 5 - 10 minutes.


4. Lightly coat the inside and outside of your cookware with a congealed oil such as a vegetable oil, shortening, or lard. (This aids to fill-in and coat the pores of your Cast Iron Cookware. Note: Butter and margarine should not be used in this process.) Be sure to coat the handle and lid, if applicable.


5. Place the cookware in the oven, upside down, at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for one hour. (Layer the bottom of your oven with aluminum foil to catch any oil drippings. Note: Turning the cookware upside down will aid in the prevention of gummy oil buildup. Another way to prevent gummy oil buildup is to wipe away excess oil after 15 minutes in the oven.) The heat helps to lock in the oils and create a smooth, non-stick surface.


6. Let the cookware cool to room temperature.


7. Repeat steps 4 - 6, three times.
