For some people, a "Visual" is preferred, over a good lesson provided you like to read, btw - thank you Aiden,...
So, if that is you, a preferred Visual learner, then watch this...

Wash your cast iron in hot water immediately after use. Due to concerns about bacteria, I recommend washing with soap and water - although there are many cast iron users who feel it is best to stick to water. Whichever route you choose, be sure not to scrub too vigorously, and be careful not to submerge the pot in water. This can cause damage to the spices in the pan.
Wipe your cookware brand. Cast iron will rust if not dried immediately after washing. Start by towel drying your cookware. Then place it on the stove over low heat for a minute or two to pull out any remaining moisture. If desired, easily coat the inside of the pan with the oil, and heat for a minute or two longer. This will help restore any spices that might have been lost during washing.
Store with lid. To further protect against rust, store cookware with lid. Many cast iron users also recommend placing a paper towel inside the cookware to absorb additional moisture that may be present - either in the pot or in the surrounding environment.

I had a skillet pan made of cast iron and when I saw it now, it has rusted. Why does it rust?


Any kind of iron implement is at risk of rusting over time, especially if it is exposed to moisture. In the case of cast iron cookware it is possible it was not seasoned properly when it was new, was stored in a damp area, soaked in water, or it was washed with soap which is not recommended since it will remove the oil coating protecting the skillet. The good news is rust can be cleaned off. After cleaning the rust though, the pan should be seasoned to prevent this from happening again.

How do I season my stainless steel electric skillet?


Seasoning a pan or skillet is only done on cast iron because the metal has pockets in the surface that cause food to stick. Stainless steel does not have those pockets.

Can I use Cast Iron Pots and Skillets on my new Frigidaire Gallery Stove Top?


Hello friend, thanks for your post!
It is not recommended to use any cast iron pots or skillets on a Frigidaire smooth top. In your manual it provides the best type of cookware material and cast iron is a poor heat conductor. Due to the weight of the cast iron it can cause scratches or damage the cooktop. I hope this information has been helpful. -Matt

How do you clean a wok without ruining it?


After use;

1. Rinse your wok in warm soapy water and remove any food from the inside surface.

2. If you need to clean the wok more thoroughly you can do it in hot water but don't use any soap or chemicals.

3. Dry the wok with a towel

4. A properly seasoned wok won't give off any black smudges. If yours does, it may still be dirty or just need to be seasoned again.

How should I store my cast iron skillet?


You should store it without the lid. If you leave the lid on then it is more likelt to rust. Some people even put a paper towel inside to protect against moisture. I leave a paper towel in all my pans.

I seasoned my new stainless steel skillet in the oven now I have built up oil stuck to the sides inside the skillet. How can I remove this without damaging the stainless steel finish? HELP!


You only need to season a cast iron skillet, not stainless steel. Soak it in hot soapy water and use something like a mister clean pad to clean it.

Cast iron pans


Cast iron cookware is NOT recommended due to the weight and the potential damage it can cause to the glass top surface. There's nothing better than a good old-fashioned cast iron skillet that's been broken in over a number of years of use, but they are better suited for gas ranges rather than electric. I hate it. I have several cast iron skillets that I only use on the outdoor grill, because I currently own a glass top electric range.

Aluminum bottom pans and copper bottom pans heat well, but can leave metal transfer marks on the cook top surface. If the marks are cleaned after use with an approved stove top cleaner, you shouldn't have any problem retaining the condition of the glass surface, however. Stainless Steel seems to offer good resistance to metal transfer, but takes a little longer to heat than aluminum or copper. So...you have somewhat of a trade off. Baked enamel cookware seems to be the best recommendation because it heats wells and causes the least amount of damage to your glass top surface.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the bottom of your cookware is FLAT. If your pans are warped or bowed, this can cause uneven heat transfer on the heating elements and potentially cause the cook top to crack. Most manufacturers will not replace the top if it still under warranty if it is determined that your cookware caused the problem.

A little over kill, but I hope this helps you.
