Versatility of cast iron pans and skillets makes it stand out. In fact, you can utilize your creative best and experiment with different cuisines. Cast iron is non-stick in nature. Curing and seasoning prevent food particles to stick to the surface and appearance of cracks. If you are using a frying pan, then preheat it. Avoid pouring cold liquid on a hot surface, as it will lead to cracks. While cooking in Cast Iron Cook Pot on the electric stove, you need to take extra care. Preheating and setting the temperature should be done with utmost care. If you heat the pan too fast then, it might form hotspots.

Every time you cook in these pans, the surface will appear smooth as seasoning fills the microscopic pores of cast iron surface. Maintenance of pots decides durability of Cast Iron Cook Pot. You can wash utensils in brief intervals and then dry to get rid of excess oil. Unlike utensils of other makes, you cannot wash a cast iron cookware in dishwasher. You can use water and dishwashing soap for cleaning utensils. Never let the water rest on the surface, as it will lead to the formation of rust.

Prevent it from rust formation
