Home > Care and maintenance’ tip of cast iron cookware

Cooking with Cast Iron Cookware continues to bring forward the heritage of the pioneers who used it when on the trail to find new homes in the West; the best cookware is made from cast iron and is a collector's item, especially the earlier makes and types which were often made in specific cities or towns. The best feature about this cookware is that it allows for cooking at high temperatures without harming the skillets. This style of cookware is best suited for cooking recipes that take longer to cook or require heat over a longer period of time and are versitile when used between the stovetop and oven.


Caring for the Cast Iron Cookware is not as difficult as it may first seem, but it does take time to do properly. There are some considerations for the care and maintenance of your cast iron cookware include the following:


1. When using and electric range, pre-heat cast iron cookware slowly on medium to medium-low heat.


2. When at high temperatures, do not place cold water in your cookware. This will cause instant cracking.


3. Limit cooking with acidic foods (e.g. tomatoes, vinegar) as this breaks down the seasoning.


4. Do not keep leftover food in the Cast Iron Cookware for too long. The acid in the food could begin to breakdown the seasoning. You can prevent this from happening by transferring leftover food into a glass or plastic container prior to refrigeration.


5. Do not boil water in your cast irons.


6. Do not store your pans and pots with a lid on top. Keeping the lid on could promote moisture, which could lead to rusting.


7. Do not use dishwashing soap to clean your cast iron cookware day-to-day. This will open pores and over time make it susceptible to retain bacteria from food. Simply wipe and rinse your cookware under warm water. However, if you do decide to use dishwashing soap, it is necessary that you season your cast iron cookware in the oven as described above. However, do not let your cookware soak in soapy water or expose it to water for any length of time.
