Unlike Teflon or stainless steel skillets, cast iron skillets cook better as they get older. This happens due to cast iron skillets becoming “seasoned”, which is essential if you want to cook with a nonstick surface and avoid rust. This seasoned layer is created by the cast iron absorbing fats into its microscopic pores. In order for your cast iron skillet to stay nonstick and well seasoned, you must never use dish soap to clean it. Doing so will remove the seasoned layer and eventually ruin your cast iron skillet. Food will stick and eventually your skillet will rust. This article will show you how to properly clean your cast iron skillet to ensure the seasoned layer remains and the life of your skillet is extended.
