How to Clean Cast Iron Cookware 

Here we will show you how to clean your ARNA Innovation Cast Iron. Follow the instructions below and Complete the W.D.O method to use your cookware for generations. 


Cast iron should never go in the dishwasher. It takes an extended time to create a non-stick surface on cast iron and dishwashing detergents will strip it away and leave the pan venerable to rust. It is better to wash your cast iron cookware by hand. Using our Bamboo Scrub Brush and a small amount of soap can help you to remove any stuck-on food. For cleaning burned and tough stuck-on food, first add some warm water to the cookware for 3-6 minutes, then use the scraper brush and soap if it is needed.


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.
