Kitchenware > Cast Iron

Bounty Paper Towels. To prevent cast-iron skillets from rusting, place a sheet of Bounty Paper Towel between your cast iron pots and pans in the cupboard. The quicker picker-upper absorbs moisture that would otherwise rust the skillets.

Canada Dry Club Soda. To clean a cast-iron skillet, pour Canada Dry Club Soda over the skillet while it is still hot. The sodium bicarbonate in the club soda helps clean off the baked- on food left over from cooking.

Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening. To season new cast-iron cookware, rub Crisco All-Vegetable Shortening into the cook ware to create a thin coating and bake the cookware in an oven heated to 200 degrees Fahrenheit for two hours. After using the new cookware a few times, repeat this procedure.

Easy-Off Oven Cleaner. To clean baked-on food or grease from an aged cast-iron skillet or pot, spray the item with Easy Off Oven Cleaner in a well-ventilated area, let sit for ten minutes, then wash thoroughly.

Morton Salt. To clean a cast-iron pan, heat the pan on a stove burner set on high until the pan starts smoking. Pour one cup Morton Salt into the pan and use a wooden spoon to move the salt around the pan, allowing the salt to absorb any grease and grime from the pan. When the salt starts turning grey, discard it. The surface of the pan should appear dull; otherwise scrub it with salt again. Wash the pan clean with hot water, dry it thoroughly with a towel, let it air dry for thirty minutes, and then re-season the pan. (See “Wesson Corn Oil and Bounty Paper Towels” below.)

Mr. Coffee Filters. To prevent cast-iron skillets from rusting on the shelf, place a Mr. Coffee Filter in the skillet to absorb moisture and avert rust.

Pam Cooking Spray. To season new cast-iron cookware, wash the pot or pan in warm, soapy water after each use, wipe thoroughly dry, coat the inside with Pam Cooking Spray, then wipe clean with a sheet of paper towel.

Wesson Corn Oil. To remove rust spots from a cast-iron skil let, apply Wesson Corn Oil, let stand, then wipe thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.

Wesson Corn Oil and Bounty Paper Towels. To season a new cast-iron skillet, rub a few drops of Wesson Corn Oil into the inside of the pan with a sheet of Bounty Paper Towel and warm the sl in an oven heated to 200 degrees Fahrenheit for two hours. Repeat after washing the skillet for several weeks.
