Finished the left overs tonight.

how do I handle the cleaning now? There was a little "burned" on stuff after I wiped it out. so I guess, how do I clean it correctly, thought I'd ask here then watch youtube

Scrub with some hot water is all I do.

I spray them as clean as I can with hot water and then use a cast iron brush to scrub anything stuck, then spray with more hot water. No soap, ever.

Use hot water and a Tuffy pad while the skillet is still warm. Amazon hs Tuffy's maybe walmart, too.

NO SOAP!

how ever you decide to clean it, rinse it good
with clean water, wipe dry, then put it back on the heat
for a couple of minute to drive the water out of it.

i don't know why this step puts people off.
it's free and doesn't cost anything to do it.
i've done this all my life and never had a rust problem.

i'll add that " seasoning" is in the pores of the iron.
it's not burned on grime like old paint on an old
wooden window sill. it's more like bluing on a gun,
and "seasoning" can't be washed off or wiped off.
there's a lot of folks on yoofloob that confuse burned
on grime with "seasoning" and they're not one in the same
like they say it is. it comes about through repeated
use and can't be instantly added like pin striping on a car.

I clean mine by heating up warm water in it, and scrub with a wood spoon, rinse, repeat as needed till clean. Then spray with oil and put on my gas grill upside-down to let the water evaporate off, and let the freshly sprayed oil bake in.

Supper looks good! I clean my cast iron with hot water and a plastic scrubber (Tuffy, Scotch-brite, etc.) Dry it out with a bit of paper towel and a little heat, then wipe a few drops of bacon grease over the surface. Keeps pretty well.

Yep, no soap and like maximum said, dry it via heat on the stove. I then pour a little oil in and wipe it with a paper towel. Ready for the next cook.

Please don't use sticky brown oil on your cast iron. Just lard.

I use spray conola oil, is that brown sticky? Spray oil is so easy, I can't be bother with anything else. All my cast iron cooking I do outside as well, they are too dirty for inside of the house. grin

I gave all mine to NewGulf. I now only use non stick pans. They do fine for what I cook. Tonight it was Chinese bell pepper steak in a non stick wok. Tomorrow it will be tenderloin fajitas in a non stick pan. I just run water over them and put them away.

After cooking with frying pans, get what food you want to keep, if not all eaten then let the dog lick it clean. NO WATER NEEDED? Put back in cabinet (right Bill)
