How to Prevent Oxidization
- It is important to dry your cast iron product completely after washing.
- The transition point in particular where the interior and exterior meet on both the casserole and the lid should be thoroughly washed and dried to prevent oxidization. A very light coating of cooking oil around this edge after drying completely will help prevent oxidization at the transition point.
It is very important to not soak in water and to thoroughly dry cast iron cookware to prevent rust.
How to Properly Season
KitchenAid® cast iron cookware has already been seasoned, so unlike many other brands, there is no reason to season it prior to use.
It is also not necessary to use any type of oil after washing on the inside of the pan to maintain the seasoning.
Cast Iron and Glass Cooktops
- Cast Iron pans can be used but should not be moved back and forth on the cooktop as it may scratch the cooktop. To avoid scratches, do not slide cookware or bakeware across the cooktop. Aluminum or copper bottoms and rough finishes on cookware or bakeware could leave scratches or marks on the cooktop.
- They can be used with caution.
