Better Care for your Cast Iron Cookware

Cast iron pans have been around for thousands of years.  Home cooks and chefs love them for their ability to retain heat at high temperatures making them perfect for frying, braising and baking.

Despite their many advantages, cast iron pans are among the most high maintenance kitchen tools you can have. Forget setting them aside to soak while you enjoy your meal.  They need to be cleaned by hand immediately, dried right away.  Even after taking those precautions, cast iron cookware can still rust.

A few weeks ago I received a bottle of Cast Iron Oil from Caron & Doucet Cuisine, a Canadian company.  Caron & Doucet develops products using plant-based, renewable ingredients.  Their Cast Iron Oil is made with refined coconut oil and lemongrass.  I have been using it on my cast iron pan by simply wiping it down with a thin layer after washing.  Now that it is (finally) BBQ season I have started using it on my Weber grill as well.

Caron & Doucet’s commitment to developing renewable products extends to it’s packaging.  Behind the great design is aluminium, a material that is widely available and can be recycled over and over (unlike plastic).
