Cast Iron Care Advice
Cast Ironware is a natural product that requires minimum care. Do not use detergents or souring agents, etc. Use cooking oil, butter or margarine for frying and browning. When cleaning, use only hot water and a brush. Wipe the surface dry. Do not store food in your Carl Victor product as this could lead to rusting. It is a good idea to rub the pan with cooking oil after use.
NOTE! Do not place in dishwasher.
All Carl Victor cast iron cookware is ovenproof and suitable for all hob types, including induction.
Our cookware is safe at high temperatures; use metal, wood, or hi-temp silicone utensils.
Some foods may stick to new cookware (especially eggs). Use a little extra oil or butter until you’ve built up the seasoning.
Acidic foods like tomatoes, beans, and certain sauces can damage seasoning, and should be avoided until the seasoning is well-established.
Cast Iron rarely needs to go above a medium heat setting when properly pre-heated. For the times when you do cook at higher temperatures, bring the pan to temperature gradually and add oil to just before adding food to prevent sticking.
