How to Season and Care for Your Cooklife Cast Iron

  1. Before cooking, preheat your cast iron cookware on low heat for 4 to 5 minutes. When using a new skillet, add a little extra oil.
  2. Recommended dishes for the first use include sautéing onions, baking cornbread, roasting vegetables, or frying various foods, as these help build seasoning.
  3. Avoid cooking acidic foods such as tomatoes, wine, citrus, or vinegar initially to protect the seasoning.
  4. Avoid prolonged simmering with salty liquids during the early use stages.
