Seasoning Cast Iron with Coconut Oil
When taking care of your Cast Iron skillets and Grill, they can last a lifetime.
Home chefs love their cast iron skillets for their even heating, durability and non stickiness but what a lot of people forget is that you need to season your cast iron skillet before you use it or it will rust and food will stick to it.
Seasoning the skillet fills in the pores in the skillet surface and forms a protective coating.
Best Oil for seasoning Cast Iron Skillet:
Preheat your oven to 300 degrees.
Clean the pan in warm water. Do not use soap because the pan will absorb the soap! Use a brush to clean the pan of any dirt that might have accumulated during manufacturing. Dry the pan with a clean, soft cloth.
Using an old towel or piece of a t-shirt, rub our Cast Iron Oil with 100% Fractionated coconut oil around the entire pan, making sure it is entirely coated, inside and out.
Set the pan upside down on the oven rack and heat it in the oven for 30 to 60 minutes.
