I cook every day and never know how to take good care of my skillets. And most chances are I cook with them, wash and let it dry, and the skillets are susceptible and are becoming sticky while stirring. One way I learned is to Reseason Rusty Cast Iron Cookware into new, as I have learned before. And this guide we are going to share today will make cooking with cast iron a breeze!
This rather unconventional way to clean his iron cast skillet by baking the cast iron skillet Upside Down In The Oven to keep it new. Here is how:
- Clean your skillet as usual with dish soap but with steel wool to get off the rust and gunk. Then, preheat your oven to 450-500 degrees F, wash your skillet with warm, mildly soapy water using a sponge.
- Let your skillet dry (heating is a way). Once completely dry, apply a thin layer of vegetable oil to the inside and outside of the skillet, using a dry cloth or paper towel.
- Place the skillet upside down in the center of the oven with a layer of aluminium foil underneath to catch any drips for one hour.
- When its done, let the skillet cool off completely before removing it from the oven. And your skillets will look as new again.
So now instead of throwing out your skillet once you think it’s reached the end or is too dirty to stand, consider this easy hack to make it look as good as new. Don’t forget to share this handy hack with your friends who love cook, too.
