Home > How to dry Cast Iron Cookware

Cast Iron Cookware are great for everyday meals and they can be used for a wide range of dishes. Anything from simple sautéed vegetables to roasted delicacies, cast iron cookware can do them all. You also have a lot of health benefits to this because of its properties and it releases a lot of iron into your food and sauces - as much as twenty times more iron! However, good cookware need your special care, thus, it's essential that you maintain it properly. It's especially important to dry it properly.


1 Wash the pot using a mild dish soap and warm water to clean food and excess oils from the cooking surface. Use steel wool or a plastic scrubber to remove stuck-on foods.


2 Thoroughly dry all surfaces with a paper towel or a clean kitchen towel. Don’t overlook the handle or the bottom of your Cast Iron Cookware.


3 Place the pot on any still-warm burner on the stove. If the stove is not warm, place the pot on a burner on the lowest setting. Leave the pot on the burner for a minute or two, just long enough to ensure complete drying.


4 Lightly coat the warm cooking surface with vegetable oil, spreading it with a paper towel. Remove any excess oil. Allow the pot to cool completely before putting it away.


5 Store cast iron pots by hanging them in a protected dry area or flat on a shelf. Never stack Cast Iron Cookware together or store with the lids on. Residual moisture in a closed pot will cause rusting.
