What is meant by pre-seasoned cast iron?
Pre-seasoned means a coating of wax has been applied to prevent rusting after being manufactured in the factory or known as “factory seasoned”. Customers still have to clean and re-season it before starting to use it.
Steps to re-season the skillet after purchase:
1. Wash your new skillet with soap and brush.
2. Rinse with water
3. Dry off the skillet with a dry cloth
4. Heat it on the stovetop until it is smoking hot to make sure complete dry (this step is important as water is the enemy of cast iron skillets)
4. Apply a thin, even coating of cooking oil of your choice (inside and outside of the skillet)
Note: Remember to wipe off excess oil.
5. Hang to dry for next use
