Tip Jar Tuesday- Cast Iron cookware care

Cast iron cookware has been around for centuries and will most likely be around for more. Its versatility and even heat-distribution has made cast iron cookware a favorite of many cooks. Pots, pans and various other pieces can be purchased new from the store or found for a bargain at yard sales or flea markets and some is even passed down through generations as a family tradition.

And, with proper care and maintenance, an owner of a piece of cast iron can assure that it will last for a lifetime (or several).

In this instructable, I  show the steps and guidelines to follow to keep my cast iron collection in good condition and ready for anything.

Quick tips:
For cast iron pans, remove cooked and  burnt-on food or grease by soaking the pan in hot 
water and use a plastic scouring pad. 
It’s important  not to use S.O.S pads on your metal pans, which will  damage the surface of the pan. 
If the stain remains, mix 3 cups of water with 2 tablespoons of baking soda and soak.
