Cast Ironbound

Are you going to be one of those cast iron people? 

A lot of folks wonder if cast iron is right for them. "Isn't it difficult to take care of?" they wonder, "What if I drop it on my toe?" they ask. Cast iron pans aren't for everyone, so here's our official Woot Cast Iron Pro/Con List to determine if this pan's for you:

PRO: If you take care of your cast iron pan, it will last forever.
CON: Consider for a moment the hidden costs of immortality. Imagine your pan falling in love with mortal pans and watching them wither and die under the ravages of time while it continues on in the cold, meaningless, endless River of Time.

PRO: Cast iron has become extraordinarily popular among hip, young domestic bloggers.
CON: Cast iron has become extraordinarily popular among hip, young domestic bloggers.

PRO: The thicker bottom provide even distribution of heat.
CON: Ehehehehehehehehe. "Thicker bottom."

PRO: Can use a metal spatula, unlike nonstick pans.
CON: Eggs tend to stick to it, unlike nonstick pans.

PRO: Is good.
CON: Ummm…is heavy?

Pre-Seasoning Advantages:
- Allows for immediate use
- Prevents rust
- Creates a nonstick surface for easy food release
- Simplified cleaning

Use Instructions
- Rinse with hot water (do not use soap), and dry thoroughly
- Before cooking, apply vegetable oil to the cooking surface of your pan and pre-heat the pan slowly (always start on low heat, increasing the temperature slowly)
- Once the cookware is properly pre-heated, you are ready to cook
- TIP: Avoid cooking very cold food in the pan, as this can promote sticking
- PLEASE REMEMBER: Handles will become very hot in the oven, and on the stovetop. Always use an oven mitt to prevent burns when handling pans

Cleaning Instructions
- After cooking, clean pan with a stiff nylon brush and hot water. Using soap is not recommended, and harsh detergents should never be used. (Avoid putting a hot cookware into cold water. Thermal shock can occur causing the metal to warp or crack)
- Towel dry immediately and apply a light coating of oil to the cookware while it is still warm. Do not let your cast iron air dry, as this can promote rust
- Store in a cool, dry place. If you have a cover, or lid, for your pan, place a folded paper towel in between lid and pan allowing air to circulate. This prevents moisture from collecting inside the pan, which can cause rust
- NEVER wash in dishwasher

Re-Seasoning Instructions
(If food sticks to the surface or you notice a dull, gray color, follow this process)
- Wash the cookware with hot, soapy water and a stiff brush. (It is okay to use soap this time because you are preparing to re-season the cookware)
- Rinse and dry completely
- Apply a thin, even coating of MELTED solid vegetable shortening (or cooking oil of your choice) to the cookware (inside and out)
- Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven to catch any dripping
- Set oven temperature to 350° – 400°F
- Place cookware upside down on the top rack of the oven
- Bake the cookware for at least one hour. After the hour, turn the oven off and let the cookware cool in the oven
- Store the cookware uncovered, in a dry place when cooled
