Questions & AnswersAsk a Question
I received the Bayou Classic 16" Cast Iron Round Skillet w/ helper handles 7439 Skillet as a Christmas gift. I have used it several times and I love it. My only problem is that everything I have used to clean it after use leaves behind traces. For example, I used paper towels and a soft dishcloth and the rough bottom and sides leave little bits in the pan. Is there something you can recommend that will not leave those pieces?
CARE & CLEANING • Try not to use metal spatulas or spoons with cast iron cookware, as they can scratch down into the layers of seasoning. • After each use, clean off all remaining food. This can be accomplished several ways: 1. Wipe out the food with a paper towel. 2. Rinse in hot water and clean with a dish-rag or soft sponge. 3. Allow the piece to soak with hot water for a few minutes to allow particularly sticky food to release before lightly scrubbing with a rag. 4. Rub coarse salt along the surface to remove unwanted particles. 5. Use a few drops of normal dish soap to clean your cast iron.* *NOTE: A long-standing “rule of thumb” for cleaning cast iron has been that soap should NEVER be used. However, the suspected origin of this idea comes from a time when soap had high lye content, which damaged the seasoning. Dish soaps today do not contain lye. If only used occassionally, mild dish soap should have little affect on cast iron seasoning. • Always dry cast iron cookware thoroughly. An easy method is to put the cast iron cookware back in a warm oven after it has been turned off. • Always store cast iron in a dry environment. • After cleaning cast iron cookware, it is best to apply a light layer of cooking oil using a lint free paper towel or rag. This will better maintain the seasoning. • Do not use abrasives such as steel wool, steel coils, metal brushes, etc. on your cast iron for cleaning purposes. These tools can be useful to polish the cooking surface or restore an old piece of cast iron, but can remove the seasoning.
