RVers love cooking with cast iron, and no wonder; cast iron pans are versatile, distribute heat evenly, and keep food warm for a long time.
Soaking a cast iron pan in water will errode its seasoned surface and cause food to stick to it. When the surface is erroded, you’ll need to season the pan again.
After you’ve removed any stuck-on food with a scrub brush or sponge, add a few drops of mild dish soap and a little warm water.
When you’re done, rinse the pan with warm water and dry with a dish towel.
Pour a little oil over the bottom. Use a wad of paper towels to spread the oil over the bottom of the pan and around the sides.
Allow the pan to cool and then wipe out any excess oil.
