How to care for your cast iron…

 

Wipe It Clean

Every time you use your cast-iron, you should wipe out any bits of food. You can clean your cast iron pot with hot water, kosher salt and a rag. NEVER put your cast iron in the dishwasher!!

 

Oil it

Once the pan is clean, use a rag or a paper towel to coat it with a thin layer of oil (olive oil, coconut oil, vegetable oil, canola oil) making sure to cover the entire pan inside and out, so your pot doesn’t rust.

 

Heat it

Seal in the goodness by placing your piece in an oven set to 200-250 degrees for 15 minutes and let it cool down before storing.
