Our cast iron product is real cast iron, so it is not immune to rusting if it is not properly cared for. A few things that needs to be remembered to prevent rusting is to always paper towel dry after washing. If there is water left on any surface area over night, the cast iron is sure to rust. And always remember to season the cast iron with a tiny bit of veggie oil after drying.
In these situations, we tell all our customers that rusting is completely normal and it can be easily restored back to a clean black cast iron again. You can easily find tutorials online for a easy step-by-step guide on how to restore the cast iron (Even when its completely covered in rust).
A simple guide that we offer to all customers:
How to Remove Rust
If your beloved cast-iron cookware has acquired rust over the years, a nonmetallic scrubber paired with a little bit of soapy water will do the trick. If the rust is still visible after scrubbing, mix equal parts water and white vinegar and submerge the cookware in the liquid completely. Let sit for up to eight hours, but frequently check on the cookware to see if the rust is removed in less time. If scrubbing is needed, proceed with using the nonmetallic scrubber again, otherwise go right to re-seasoning your cookware.
How to Re-Season
Step 1: Wash your pan with hot water and dish soap.
Step 2: Wipe the pan dry with a clean towel.
Step 3: Apply a thin layer of solid shortening with a paper towel on the front, sides, and bottom of the pan.
Step 4: Place your pan facedown on aluminum foil in the oven.
Step 5: Let it heat for over one hour at 350℉.
Step 6: Turn off the oven and let the pan cool down in the oven.
Step 7. Repeat steps 3 to 6 one more time for the best results.
We promise, you will be amazed with the results and your cast iron will look as good as new.
