Lodge Use & Care

 

Keep it dry. Keep it oiled (seasoned). Keep it 100 years.

IF YOU DO NOTHING ELSE

  • Hand wash.
  • Dry immediately.
  • Rub with a light coat of vegetable oil after every use. 
  • How much oil?  Enough to restore the sheen. 
  • Why!?  To keep the iron "seasoned" and protected from moisture.

 

SEASONING - IT ISN'T SALT AND PEPPER

  • "Seasoning" is a coat of vegetable oil baked onto the iron at high temperature.
  • "Seasoning" is not a chemical non-stick coating.
  • The resulting black patina provides the easy release properties.  The more you cook, the better it gets.
  • You may experience some sticking with new cookware so use a little oil when cooking.
  • "Seasoning" also provides the iron a necessary barrier from moisture to prevent rust.
  • Because YOU create, maintain, and even repair the "seasoning", your cookware can last 100 years or more. Chemical non-stick coatings cannot be repaired limiting their lifespan.

 

TO SOAP OR NOT TO SOAP

  • If "no soap" is too scary, consider that most cookware is 200C in 4 minutes on medium heat.  It's sterile at 100C.  However, mild soapy water is fine, if you dry and oil immediately.
  • DO NOT put in the dishwasher!

 

RUST!?  DON'T PANIC - IT'S NOT BROKEN

  • Without protective seasoning iron can rust.
  • It's really easy to fix. Scour the rust, rinse and dry, rub with a little vegetable oil.
  • Lots of rust?  You may have to re-season.  Visit Lodge Reseasoning for directions.  It's easy!

 

WHEN IT'S HOT, IT'S HOT

  • Lodge cast iron keeps the heat, so turn down the temperature and save energy.
  • Lodge seasoned cast iron is right at home on any heat source, except the microwave.
  • Use induction, ceramic, electric, gas cooktops, the grill or even the campfire.

 

DO YOU HAVE A LODGE TEMPERED GLASS COVER?

  • Hi-temp plastic knob is oven safe to 200C.
  • The glass cover is dishwasher safe.
  • Do not use in the microwave.
