Cast iron cookware is known for being tough and holding heat well. But they work best when properly seasoned.
Seasoning cast iron may seem a bit more involved than caring for other types of pots and pans, but it’s actually quite easy to do. Let me show you how to properly reseason it.
Step 1 - Clean it Before you season your cast iron, make sure it is clean. You can use a small amount of soap or salt and scouring pad.
Step 3- Place it in Oven Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place the cast iron pan in the oven and heat it for about one hour.
Step 4 – Let the cast iron cool - Remove it from the oven with an oven mitt and place it on the stove or trivet. Allow the cast iron pan to cool.
Seasoning the cast iron skillet helps to form a natural nonstick surface coating that prevents it from rusting again. The seasoning likely eroded with the cleaning of the cast iron grill pan.
