Giriş

Cast iron skillets or pans are great tools in the kitchen, but they can be hard to maintain. After a lot of use, cast iron skillets tend to gather a lot of gunk, and food often begins to stick to the cooking surface. This happens when the cast iron skillet’s seasoned layer is damaged and no longer fully coats the pan. The seasoning is basically a layer of oil protects the pan from rusting and allows food to be easily removed. This guide will go through how to remove the damaged layer on a skillet, and will explain how to apply a new layer of seasoning to make the skillet feel as good as new.

The skillet should no longer have any sticky surfaces, and should cook as if it were new. To prevent damage to the seasoned layer, be careful with metal spatulas and make sure to only wash the skillet with soap and steel wool if you are removing a damaged layer to apply a new one.
