How to use a cast iron skillet
- Before using your skillets for the 1st time, hand-wash with hot water. Using soap may remove the pre-seasoning. Dry immediately and thoroughly to prevent rust.
- While skillets are pre-seasoned, you may apply a light coating of cooking oil inside the skillets before each use.
- Cook with low to medium heat only.
- If using on a ceramic glass cooktop, always lift (do NOT slide) when moving to avoid scratching the cooktop.
- Do NOT use silicone grips under an oven broiler unit
- Always use oven mitts when handling hot skillets
- Let skillets cool before washing.
How to re-season a cast iron skillet
- Apply a high smoke point cooking oil over the entire surface, then heat in the oven for an hour at 350°F (176°C).
- To catch excess oil, place a baking sheet on the oven rack below the skillets.
- The skillets are ready to use once cooled.
- You may wipe off any excess oil remaining on the skillets.
How to care for a cast iron skillet
- Hand wash only – do NOT clean in the dishwasher.
- If necessary, you may use mild, soapy water if you thoroughly dry and oil your pans immediately after washing.
- Metal scouring pads will remove seasoning.
- To maintain seasoning, lightly rub cooking oil over the entire skillet after drying thoroughly.
- Avoid using acidic foods, such as tomatoes, in the skillets as this may damage the seasoning and give the food a metallic taste (However, after a few uses and consistent seasoning, you may safely cook acidic foods in the skillets)
- Thoroughly dry the silicone grip before replacing on skillet handle to prevent rust
