Use a cloth or paper towel to rub off any excess.
  • CARE and Use Instructions – Follow these to Ensure that Your Cast Iron Lasts a Lifetime! Care 1) Hand wash and dry immediately – even before the very first use. 2) Allow your cookware to cool naturally prior to cleaning (plunging hot cast iron into water may cause damage). 3) Rub a small amount of vegetable oil into the product after every wash. Use just enough to restore the sheen, without it becoming ‘sticky’. This reinforces the natural seasoning and protects the cast iron from moisture (which can lead to rusting)
  • Use 1) It is safe to use metal, wood or silicone utensils with your cookware. 2) Some foods (especially eggs) may stick to some degree during initial usage. It is advisable to employ extra oil or butter until the seasoning has built-up. 3) Acidic foods such as tomatoes, beans and certain sauces can damage the seasoning and should be avoided until the natural non-stick layer has matured. 4) Cast iron rarely needs to be placed on an above-medium heat setting if adequately pre-heated.
  • On occasions when a higher cooking temperature is required, elevate the heat gradually and apply oil just prior to adding the food in order to prevent sticking. 5) Holders/mitts are essential when using the handles. Protect countertops with trivets.
