How Do I Care For My Cast Iron Product? Morgan Atwood Modified on: Thu, Aug 13, 2020 at 11:16 AM How do I care for my cast iron product?Caring for your cast iron product:Cast iron products can break from thermal shock; i.e. placing a very hot pan in cold water. Always allow your pan to cool before washing. Wash your pan lightly in warm water after each use. Do not use a scouring pad, stiff brush or detergent, as you want the pan to remain seasoned. Never let pan soak in water and dry well to prevent rust. Apply a light coating of vegetable oil inside the pan to help maintain the seasoning.Always follow the use and care included with your cast iron product.
