How To Season A Cast Iron Skillet
Seasoning is just oil baked onto cast iron. It helps to prevent your skillet from rusting and naturally coats a non-stick surface. It may take a little extra care but a well-seasoned cast iron skillet will last for generations.
Rub a light layer of cooking oil onto the surface of your skillet including the handle and the bottom of the skillet. Place the oiled skillet in a preheated 200°C oven, and leave it there for 1 hour. You'll want to do this oiling-and-heating process two to three times to finish the seasoning process.
Clean And Care
步驟 1: 清洗 Wash
Clean skillet in warm water with mild dish soap.
步驟 2: 乾燥 Dry
Dry thoroughly with a clean, dry cloth or paper towels to prevent rusting.
步驟 3: 上油Oil
Coat a thin layer of oil on the skillet. Air dry in dry, cool place or heat dry on top of a stovetop.
＊Cast iron remains hot long after you remove it from the stove. As a reminder to be careful, drape a thick towel or a mitten over the handle.
＊Cook with your skillet as often as you can. Every time you heat oil or fat for an extended period of time in cast iron, you have the opportunity to add a thin, durable seasoning to your skillet. These thin layers build on each other like coats of paint on a wall, slowly but surely forming a resilient, ultra-slick surface.
