New to Using Iron Skillets?
Here are a few helpful tips to get you started with cast iron cooking.
I have used and absolutely love Lodge cast iron. They arrive pre-seasoned, but that doesn’t quite give them with a perfect non stick surface.
To properly season your cast iron, clean it and dry it completely. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F. Rub a thin layer of vegetable or canola oil over the surface with a paper towel.
Do not use Olive oil or butter to season – this will leave your skillet sticky. But you can cook with them!
Place upside down on baking sheet that is lined with foil. And bake for 1 hour.
To keep it clean, wash with hot water and a soft wash cloth or sponge. Dry thoroughly.
You can also give it a super light wipe down with vegetable or canola oil. And heat it up over medium heat on the stove top for a few minutes.
