Besides the durability, cast iron is one of the healthiest ways to cook. Small amounts of iron actually get passed into your food, which is beneficial for those that may be iron deficient or pregnant.
Cast iron builds up a natural non-stick coating over time by adding a small amount of oil to the pan after cleaning. This is also called “seasoning” your pan.
Cast iron is actually very easy to care for. You never want to wash with detergent or put cast iron into a dishwasher. A simple scraping away of food particles and rinsing in hot water is enough. Dry you pan thoroughly to prevent rusting. If rusting should occur, that is also easy to fix. Simple sprinkle sea salt into the pan, then using a half of a potato, scrub away until all the rust is removed. Rinse and season again with oil.
