Cast Iron Cleaning
The Guide for Cast Iron Cookware Care

It's crucial to follow a method that preserves the seasoning and prevents damage. Here's a step-by-step guide to doing it right:

  1. Check the Cast Iron: Before you begin, inspect the cast iron for any food residue or signs of rust. This will help you determine how much cleaning is needed.

  2. Use Warm Water and a Soft Scrub: Never use cold water to clean cast iron. Use warm water and a soft, non-abrasive scrubber, such as a nylon brush or sponge, to remove any food debris. Avoid metal scrubbers or harsh scouring pads as they can damage the seasoning.
