If you've never cooked with pre-seasoned cast iron, this set offers a great opportunity to invest in a set of skillet pans for a super price. The pans are suitable for all types of heat source, including gas, electric, ceramic/halogen and induction hobs and can also be used in the oven as well as on open camp fires and barbecues.
The seasoning process involves baking vegetable oil on to the surface at a high temperature, creating a naturally non-stick surface, without the need for any chemical coating.
The heat treatment allows the oil to penetrate into the pores of the iron to give it easy-release properties without the health worries associated with some chemicals. You can easily maintain the surface by rubbing in a little fresh oil after washing in soap and water.
This set of skillet pans is perfect for cooking a wide range of dishes. You can sear, fry, sauté, grill, roast and bake - or use a combination of methods to create your dish. For instance, sweat down onions and other vegetables before adding beaten eggs and finishing off your frittata in the oven. Or sear chicken or duck breasts on the hob before roasting to perfection.
Ideal for cooking bacon, steaks and other meat, poultry and fish as well as vegetables.
RE-SEASONING: Ensure you re-season when thoroughly clean ready for next use. Coat the cookware including the lid (if applicable) with a thick layer of vegetable oil or shortening using a pastry brush or a cloth. The entire cookware surface must be coated with oil. Place the cookware in a preheated oven at 175°C/350°F for one hour. After one hour, turn off the oven and allow cookware to cool gradually. When the pan has cooled down-wipe away off any remaining oil with paper towels.
STOVETOP USE: Always use a small amount of cooking oil inside the pot/pan before each use. Always preheat your cast iron for increased non-stick performance.
