HOW TO Start IN YOUR Polished Cast Iron Pan
Let’s start by saying: Your smooth polished cast-iron cookware surface will be going better and better after every use . And it is going to last a long, long time.
First, wash your smooth polished pan. See below for more, but in short: Wash, dry, oil.
How to clean
If you know anything here, let it be this mantra of a maintenance routine: keep it clean, keep it dry, keep it oiled.
CLEAN Yes, you can use soap. Yes, you can scrub the hell out of your pan. And yes, some of your seasoning might disappear in the process, but that’s okay—you’re working toward a progressive patina, it won’t happen overnight. The oil or fat from your next meal will build on that process. But in between, keep the pan clean, which helps keep the surface smooth. Remember to fully dry . Super easy cleanup !
DRY Immediately after washing, heat your pan on the stove. This will evaporate any residual water in just a matter of minutes. Add oil and place over low heat to accelerate a mature seasoning .
OILED Immediately after drying, while the pan is still warm, lightly coat all surfaces with refined oil. You are applying this oil to protect the pan’s surface. It is a tool for you.
How to use
Use We know they’re pretty, the more you use your cast iron , the dryer , harder and more dense your mature seasoning will get . When you cook , you could see the eggs float iff this polished bottom . Interesting !
Rust & Re-Seasoning
MINOR RUST SPOTS Over time there will be those.
Scrub with steel wool , wash with water and dash of soap , dry it carefully , and re-oil your heirloom in the making .
RE-SEASONING We apply our proprietary oil blend in our commercial kitchen using high-temperature ovens .seriously damaged we don’t recommend stripping it but instead suggest applying additional layers of seasoning.
Wash the pan and dry thoroughly. Place it in the oven and set temperature for 200º. When the oven comes to 200º remove the pan and reset the oven to 500º. The pan may not be cool enough to touch so use an old oven mitt while handling.
Your smooth polished cast iron will change over time . The seasoning will change and color will darken to a rich black . Please don’t worry , as we said in the beginning , the surface will get better and better after use ! And there is no coating , it will last generations and has a slick surface.
