How to use Cast Iron Cookware
Cast-iron skillets don't heat as evenly as nonstick or stainless steel pans, but they keep their heat very well. So preheat the skillet on low to medium heat for 5-10 minutes, until it's evenly heated. You can carefully hover your hand over the pan to feel when it's hot enough and ready to go. Cast Iron cookware is the best Non-stick product available as long as they pre-heated correctly.
Drying cast iron cookware helps to prevent possible rust in future. Start with a clean cloth and try to dry the surface until there is not any trace of water on the cookware. You may see some black residue on your cloth which are just the previous seasoning. Then place it on the stovetop over low heat for a few minutes, until it is completely dry. Put the cookware aside and let it get cool.
Add a little oil onto the surface of your cookware and wipe the interior with paper towels until the surface looks dark and shiny and has no remaining oil residue.
