Use & Care Instructions
PREPARING YOUR OIL-CURED POT FOR USE
Wash out thoroughly with boiling water and dry. Coat the inside with cooking oil (or vegetable fat) and heat until the pot begins to smoke. When cool enough, use a paper towel, wipe inside clean. Repeat until towel wipes clean. The potjie pot is now ready for use. The more you use it the better it becomes.
AFTER EACH USE
Rinse with warm water and use a brush or scraper to remove stuck-on bits. For really stuck-on food, scrub with salt and oil, rinse and wipe clean. Dry the pan and coat with a thin layer of oil. Store until ready to use. Cool the pan and store until ready to cook again.
STORING YOUR POTJIE
After each use, wash the potjie pot and dry over the heat source to remove excess moisture. Coat the inside with cooking oil or Spray and Cook. Store your potjie with the lid off and absorbent paper inside.
QUICK DOS & DON’TS OF COOKING IN CAST IRON
- Don’t be afraid of eggs, tomatoes, or fish in cast iron. Some of these recipes take practice but don’t be afraid of trying them.
- Do be mindful about what you first make in your skillet. See below for the first four things to make in your cast iron skillet and you’ll be on your way to a perfectly seasoned partner in the kitchen.
- Do use gentle utensils like wood, silicone, and rubber. The occasional metal fish spatula or pancake turner is okay, but try to avoid lots of metal utensils in your pan – especially while building up the seasoning.
- Don’t store food in cast iron. It is bad for the pan and bad for the food.
- Do clean the pan right away. And avoid soaking it!
