Home > How to Refresh & Season Old Cast Iron Cookware

Cast iron cookware is very excellent for cooking. It conducts heat better than other material and heats more evenly. What’s more , It's affordable and extremely durable, often handed down in a family for multiple generations. Thus, unless the pan is cracked or broken, it can be refurbished and cleaned, ready to use again in no time.

First, clean the pan. If the cast iron cookware that you have is rusty or otherwise in disrepair, you can easily clean it up with steel wool. Soak the Cast Iron Cookware in hot, soapy water to loosen the grime. Use a stiff nylon brush to scrub the pan so you can see which areas need further cleaning. Use the steel wool to scrub off any rust. You can also use a fine grit sandpaper, if you prefer.

Second, rinse the pan with warm water and dry it. The pan should be clean and dry before seasoning it.

Third, apply a thin coat of melted vegetable shortening or cooking oil to the entire surface of the cookware, front and back. Use a paper towel or clean cloth to apply the oil.

Forth, line the oven with tin foil. Place a sheet of tinfoil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any oil that drips from the pan during seasoning. Place the pan on the top rack, upside down.

Last but not the least

Bake the cookware in the oven at 350 to 400 degrees for at least an hour. Turn the oven off and allow the Cast Iron Cookware to completely cool before storing.
