HOW DO I LOOK AFTER CAST IRON OR WROUGHT IRON?
All of your iron products — including the rEGGulator from time to time — require a light brushing of oil. After use, clean your pan with hot water and a soft sponge. Avoid detergents or scrubbers, as these are likely to take off the seasoning you've built up; the same seasoning that helps to prevent food from sticking, and gives your cooks amazing flavour.
Instead, brush down after use with a non-abrasive cloth, and then season with sunflower or rapeseed oil.
Our top tip: for the best results, use sunflower or rapeseed oil which has a higher burning temperature and won’t leave a bitter taste once burnt.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO "SEASON" COOKWARE?
Seasoning is the process of coating cookware with layers of fat to create a natural non-stick surface.
Cast iron and wrought iron have the amazing ability to retain seasoning. This means that your iron pans will become more and more non-stick with every use. What's more, your food will begin to taste better as it takes on the flavours of cooks that came before it.
But with great power comes great responsibility! You'll have to re-season your iron cookware with a high burning temperature oil (such as rapeseed oil) from time to time.
