Just rinse the pan while its warm and hand wash without a metal scrub brush and you're good.
@Runnin with scissors, yup it's way easier than people think and they'll last forever. Only pans I use other than for boiling water
@WelI Obviously, it's literally just like saying "handwash" and that's it. I dont know anyone that uses metal to clean pans.
@Runnin with scissors, yea I think people get intimidated by the idea of them, but once they get seasoned up they're just so easy
@Runnin with scissors, yeah I love the taste of old foods being in my new foods. Not gross at all. And that cast iron flavor!? Definitely not particles of metal in my mouth.......😬
@Runnin with scissors, My dad would scrub his skillets with salt and a papertowl instead of a metal scrub brush
@Runnin with scissors, don't forget to dry rub a little oil into it afterwards to help preserve it!
@Runnin with scissors, It's not even kind of hard
@Child Slapper, I did say handwash right? You can use soap and a sponge. You just dont through it in the dishwasher.
@Child Slapper, the bits of.back stuff qre not metal. It is the seasoning, which is just oil that is reduced into an organic polymer filining in the nooks and cranny in the cast iron. That is what makes then "non stick".
You can use soap on them. I wash mine nightly with hot water and no soap mostly. Super clean and super slick.
@Runnin with scissors, I’ve actually run experiments and bits of metal come off nearly every single cookware. Over time the particles add up and lead to health issues. But glass lining didn’t actually have a reaction. Or, titanium, but that’s obviously the best cookware for a reason.
@fuddruckers, meant to say the above comment to you, lol.
I’d like to see someone wring dry a cast iron pan
I think it's easier than cleaning a normal pan by hand
Get a plastic scraper, it’s magic
