how to keep your cast iron skillet

for beignners, most will ask; how to keep my skillet? no rust and good cooking?

Here’s the absolutely beginners guide to cast iron care — including cleaning and storage, troubleshooting, and what we think you should cook in it first.

First, clean

If you are just peeling the sticker off that new skillet, the very first thing you should do is wash the skillet. This washing will be slightly different than daily upkeep because we’re going to suggest hot, soapy water!

Maybe you’ve heard that you shouldn’t use soap on cast iron, but that’s not exactly true. When it comes to new and used skillets — a little soap and water is a good thing. This first wash removes factory residue or rust bits. Make sure you rinse and dry the pan well after this first washing. You’ll likely only need to wash your skillet with soap once or twice a year if you take good care of it.

Second, Dry

Dry promptly and thoroughly with a lint-free cloth or paper towel. If you notice a little black residue on your towel, it’s just seasoning and is perfectly normal.

Third, Oil

Rub a very light layer of cooking oil or Seasoning Spray onto the surface of your cookware. Use a paper towel to wipe the surface until no oil residue remains.we call it season or re-season, the purp0se is creat a rust-resistant and nonstick surface.
