How To Re-season Cast Iron Cookware Like A Pro

Cast Iron is fantastic for cooking as it’s naturally non -stick, very durable and holds the heat well. It’s also versatile as you can start cooking on the cooktop and then move into the oven.

You can really heat up the pot on the stove top to sear your meat, turn it down to finish cooking and then bake in the oven without using extra pots. Many popular recipes are made in a skillet.

You can even make your own bread. With so much action, they can look less than loved in no time.

The best way to ensure their longevity is to re-season regularly. For best results, do this when they are warm. Wash your cast iron skillet by hand, using hot water and a sponge. You can use a stiff brush but not steel wool. This will damage your pots and pans.

If you have food stuck to your pan, use hot water and salt to help dissolve the food. Be sure that you thoroughly dry your skillet after washing. This is an essential step so don’t overlook.

You do not want it to rust. You can pop it on your stove on low heat or in your oven for 5-15 minutes.

When removed it should be completely dry. Now is the time to add a thin layer of oil to your skillet. You can rub it into your pan with a paper towel. This will re-season your pan and it’s ready for use. 

You’ll be amazed at how well this simple cleaning procedure works and you can use vegetable oil for this process.

Here is another brilliant tip from ‘Our Twenty Minute Kitchen Garden’. They suggest a salt scrub technique. Here’s what to do.

Add a light layer of salt to cover the bottom of your cast iron pot or skillet and then use paper towels to scrub away any food particles that have stuck to the pan. Salt is a natural abrasive and you will get great results using this method. Discard the soiled salt down your drain and rinse your pot or pan. Be sure to dry your cookware thoroughly.
