How to Clean Cast Iron

Posted by Hallee on Feb 8, 2013 in Housekeeping

I use my cast iron skillet to cook with as often as possible. It is wonderful, distributes heat beautifully, and cooks evenly. But, you have to treat it differently when it’s time to wash it.

don’t use steel wool or any other kind of really abbrassive material
don’t put it in the dishwasher
don’t let it air dry

I wash mine with Kosher salt.
