How to Season Cast iron lasts for generations, but only if you treat it well. The secret ‘tis the season. You will need to regularly season your cast iron griddle casserole dish to stop it from rusting. To do this, scrub your casserole dish in warm soapy water and dry thoroughly. Spread a thin layer of oil (vegetable oil works fine – no need to waste good extra virgin olive oil on this task) and rub into all of the crevices. Then, preheat your oven to 180°c and place the casserole dish on the middle rack. Let it bake for an hour then cool in the oven.
Every time you use your cast iron, you should wipe out any bits of food with a paper towel. If there are any stubborn stains, try scouring with salt and a little warm water. Try not to use soap, because this damages the seasoning. Then, once dry, use a paper towel to coat your cast iron with a thin layer of oil. This will help protect against rust. The casserole dish will continue to build up its seasoning as you cook with it.
Tips - If your cast iron does rust, we recommend using a metal wire scrubber or stiff brush. We prefer to use salt to scrub, rather than soap. It keeps the non-stick seasoning coating on better. - Do not marinate food in any of your cast iron cookware. Most marinades contain acid and this will damage the seasoning.
