Care - Cast Iron Cookware

There are two ways to maintain the seasoning on your cast iron cookware. The easiest way is to cook with it. Every time you cook with oil, you’re potentially adding another layer to the seasoning.

Some activities may remove a bit of seasoning, such as cooking acidic foods, using excessive heat, or scrubbing with abrasive utensils or scouring pads. That’s why our simple cleaning steps have you rub oil into your pan after each use to ensure the seasoning remains for quality cooking.

You can also season your cast iron cookware in the oven. This method adds a more thorough layer of seasoning onto the entire pan, strengthening the bond to the iron. It can be beneficial to season your cast iron in the oven a few times a year. 

Step 1:

Scrub your pan

Scrub the pan with warm, soapy water. It’s okay to use soap since you’re preparing to re-season the cookware. Rinse and hand dry thorough

Step 2:

Apply oil

Apply a very thin, even layer of cooking oil to the cookware (inside and out). If you use too much oil, your cookware may become sticky.

Step 3:

Heat the Pan

Place the cookware in the Stove and heat the pan. 

Think again! While rust can happen, it can be easily removed; simply scrub the area with steel wool and re-season the pan as mentioned in manual. To prevent rust from returning, dry promptly after each use, and finish with a light layer of cooking oil.

Cast iron is incredibly durable, but it’s not indestructible. Keep in mind that cast iron will break before it bends and should still be treated with care like any other piece of cookware.

Even though your new cookware is seasoned and ready to use, it’s still important to care for your cookware after each use. Wash with warm water, dry promptly, and rub with oil — that’s it.

Great news — we do that for you! We do the seasoning with a thin layer of vegetable oil onto the surface and bake it at a high temperature in a large oven to season the cookware before it leaves the foundry.

Soap isn’t necessary, but you can use mild dish soap to clean cast iron. The seasoning on Nutreeware cast iron is fairly resilient and can withstand a little bit of soap, water, and a good scrub with a brush.

Unlike other companies that use paint for a black sheen, Nutreeware seasoning is 100% natural. The oil is baked on during the manufacturing process, and the black patina that remains is a carbon deposit left by the oil on the skillet.

These foods, in small quantities, are just fine to cook in brand new cookware. But large amounts of very acidic or alkaline foods can break down the seasoning when cooked for extended periods of time. If it removes too much seasoning, simply follow our re-season our cast iron cookware.
