But before you start cooking, you’ll want to read all about the ins-and-outs of how to take great care of your new cooking pal.
Season Your Pan
The “season” on your cast-iron skillet is what makes your iron skillet non-stick. While many new skillets come with a factory seasoning on them, if you bought yours used, you’ll want to create a hardier seasoning for the pan by cleaning up the pan and re-seasoning. Read this blog for how to season a cast-iron skillet.
Skip The Soap!
When it comes to washing your pan, you can save your dish soap for other dishes as soap can strip the oil from your well-seasoned skillet. To make it easier to clean your pan, clean when it is still warm.
Store It The Right Way
After you have properly cleaned your pan, you’ll want to properly store your pan.
