How to Season Cast-Iron Pans

Part of the Cast-Iron Cooking For Dummies Cheat Sheet

Seasoning cast iron is simple and essential. A well-seasoned cast-iron pan provides a cooking surface manufactured, non-stick coatings can only dream about. To season your cast-iron cookware, follow these steps:

  1. Wash the new pan with soap and water to remove protective coating.

  2. Wipe the thin layer of vegetable oil on all the pan surfaces, including the sides, handle, lid, and so on.

  3. Place in a 350-degree oven for 1 hour; then let cool in the oven.

Don’t wash the good seasoning away with soap. To clean your cast-iron cookware, scrape off any stuck-on food, rinse, and dry.
