Seasoning your cast-iron cookware entails developing and maintaining an oil layer on the surface of your pans and skillets. This process aims to establish a non-stick, rust-resistant coating for enhanced performance and longevity.
After applying the oil, heat the cookware in the oven to a high temperature. The exact temperature and duration of the heating process will depend on the specific type of oil you’re using and the size of the cookware.
- Smoke point and stability are essential to consider when choosing an oil for seasoning cast-iron cookware.- In terms of taste, the seasoning layer can impart a subtle flavor to the food being cooked.
