After washing the pan, always place a thin coating of oil on the pan, inside and out. This is called "seasoning". The pan should always be re-seasoned after each washing. If you reserve a pan for cooking only eggs, never wash the pan, wipe the pan with paper towels to remove the egg reminantes then place a thin coating of oil after each use. Also, with this reserved pan, the more often you cook the eggs in this pan it increases the eggs from sticking to the pan.

I was considering getting one until the video got to the part where you're supposed to get oil beyond smoking point - I don't like that idea, isn't burned oil unhealthy? And you kinda have to do that after every cooking, right?

Her voice is so annoying. Maybe just the American accent, but she is constantly leaving sentences with an upper inflection as if she is asking questions.

I just about never clean my skillet after cooking. I'll give it a good scraping with the end of a spatula to get all the stuck on bits of food up, but I'm just adding to the flavor every time I cook a steak, sausages, chicken, etc.

You should laugh. You know that's non sense. You don't get cap back from a women the more you give. The more you give the more they want.

All this video did was reinforce my impression that cast iron is a pain in the ass to deal with. Plus she kept talking about how seasoning it gives it a “nonstick” surface, but then shows her using tons of oil to cook....

isn't it a bad idea to use olive oil to cook meat with? i thought it turns to trans fat at a high temp

Do I have to do all these steps every time I use the cast iron pan?

Overall a pretty decent guide, but I have some additional recommendations from research and experience with several old pans I’ve reconditioned. A better way than cleaning it with soap to get rust/gunk off an old pan is to put it in your oven on the clean cycle. I got a nice old cast iron crepe pan on eBay that had some rancid gunk on it. The clean cycle is around 900° and it completely removes the old finish and gunk, reducing it to flaky brown stuff on top of a grey metallic surface (went in totally black). Let the pan cool enough to safely handle with mitts after the clean cycle and then immediately remove the flakes of old seasoning/gunk as soon as you can pick it up. Run it under warm water and give it a quick scrub with steel wool, copper wool, or a skillet chainmail is (the best thing since sliced bread). Don’t use soap as you will be filling in the open, unseasoned pores of the naked cast iron surface. I don’t see her solution of using soap as the worst thing since the pan is never fully stripped of its original seasoning with this technique, so you’re really just seasoning over it again and the soap probably won’t have made it into the pan surface unless you really scrub hard in the cleaning step. Cleaning mode in the oven is much easier/more thorough, however. Next place the pan straight into a 200° oven. This dries the pan and opens up the pores for oil application. Apply a layer of flax oil. Why flax oil? Shortest answer: it has the lowest smoke point. For a very detailed and well researched explanation for why flax is best, here’s the post that convinced everyone who cares a lot about using the best things that it’s superior (whether they’ve read it or not, I think it’s the person who sparked the trend amongst us cast iron snobs): http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/01/a-science-based-technique-for-seasoning-cast-iron/ Make sure to wipe any excess oil away as instructed. Then put the pan in at 450-500° upside down for an hour after preheat. Repeat this step at a minimum one more time, I do 3 total layers. This just adds a few more protective layers of the non-stick surface (which as the article explains, is a chemical process of the oil going past smoking point—the same process that renders foods cooked in smoking oils carcinogenic). Last tip from a seasoned pro (😉): buy a chain mail scrubber! Amazon has several variants, but it’s way easier/more effective than salt and you can just throw it in the dishwasher if/when it gets too funky/greasy. Use this and guard your pan from soap the wielding-pan abusers who might ruin your prized possession. If the finish is compromised by an ignorant or malicious actor, you can always clean and season again—but hopefully you can educate people around you to treat your pans as they should your knives: with proper care and respect 🍳🥩🍽🍻

this completely turned me off from cast irons, way to many steps and work for a pan. 5:45 women that take this much work are largely viewed as a bad thing, not a good thing.

Making sunny side up with lots of oil can keep the iron skillet seasoned.

The idea is solvable with a spoonful of coconut oil to avoid the crust.

Of course, if Teflon leaches into your food it isn't good for you but if iron leaches into your food it's like taking a vitamin.

What the fuck does cleaning the handle have to do with cooking with cast iron? I guess you could also say that you should wash your hands before cooking with cast iron, pop any zits on your face, and douche or clean your penis and asshole. Stupid twat

Cast iron doesn't stick if it's hot enough. Just make it really hot before cooking anything. Same with stainless steel pans.

One thing I would add is once your cast iron has cooled COMPLETELY, give it a final wipe with a towel to remove any surface oil. After it has cooled and the metal has contracted you don't need to leave any surface oil on the pan. A cold pan should look and feel dry to the touch. Surface oil will only attract bugs and go rancid. Once you heat it again you'll notice it looks oily as this is oil trapped in the pores being released. Also, avoid metal tools that can scrape the surface. Use plastic or wooden tools. If you do need to scrape stuck on food off an iron skilled then drag the scraper like you are trying to fill in a nail hole with putty instead of pushing the scraper as this will tend to scrape off the seasoning with the food.
Justin Reily (12 days ago)
The other VERY IMPORTANT reason why you want to remove as much excess oil off of the pan, before putting it in the oven is because if you don't, your oven will turn into a smoke bomb.

Please, Please, Please! get rid of the annoying music, or turn it down or talk louder. I've heard some say, use a lard, solid at room temp, others say don't use saturated fat. Some say, soap is Ok to clean after cooking, that the oil is well sealed onto the metal. But best to not use a lor of soap.

They really do last almost forever if you treat them with respect. I have a few pieces that my grandmother used on a coal fired stove in the 1930's. They are still going strong.

Just bought a cast iron pan thinking it would be easy to season....lord.
Weaseltube (15 days ago)
All that post cooking care is a waste. The seasoning will protect it from rusting, there's no need to heat-dry it, or oil it and cook it again after every meal. The seasoning will protect it from rust. If you do see rust then the seasoning has degraded well past where it's of any use in cooking. Just reseason it. Heating a pan 3 times for each meal is ridiculous.

You can get 2, 12 inch T-Fal pans for 30 bucks on Amazon. They're super non-stick, don't warp, cook evenly, have a preheat indicator and you can wash them any way you want.

This confirms my thoughts that cast iron are high maintenance! I still want one but I probably won’t use as often.
