Not just for meats, cast iron caramelizes vegetables to perfection, and its dry, even heat makes sensational baked goods.
Cast iron heats up quickly and cooks evenly, absorbing and retaining heat like no other surface; so foods brown and caramelize rather than sweat and stew.
‘Tis the Seasoning
Vegetable oil spread over a dry skillet and baked in the oven will season your skillet, creating a rust resistant, nonstick surface. This durable skillet will just get better with age.
Caring for Cast Iron
To clean, just use mild dish soap and a nonmetal pad. Then wipe out well, season with a few drops of oil and store with a paper towel covering the cooking surface. No dishwashers!
