CLEANING CAST IRON
Cleaning cast iron skillets is pretty simple. Cast iron is pretty indestructible and when taken care of, is extremely nonstick and easy to clean.
After cooking in your cast iron, remove the food and rinse it out with hot water right after cooking. The food should come out pretty easily. Wipe the skillet down with a paper towel and put a small amount of oil back onto the pan before you put it away.
If your pan doesn’t wipe right out and has bit of food stuck on, you can use a pan scraper. I run into this occasionally when I fry chicken or pork in my skillet. I have a plastic scraper that I got several years ago with one of my Pampered Chef pizza stones. That scraper works great to remove the stuck on bits of food.
Sometimes there is a little bit of food left that the scraper left behind. You can scour your cast iron skillet with a coarse sea salt and paper towel or bristle brush. Don’t use steel wool to scour it unless you plan on seasoning the pan right after.
