Black Iron products are protected by a clear, non-toxic oil which must be removed before use. To remove this layer, scrub the pan in hot soapy water and thoroughly hand dry.
The manufacturer recommends that after first use, wipe the item clean with paper towels, ensuring that it is completely dry to avoid the possibility of any rust forming.
Black iron can go rusty. If rusting does start to occur, thoroughly scrub to remove all rust and then re-season.
Wash in hot water with a washing up detergent after each use (avoid using a harsh scourers, wire wool, or metal pads), hand dry immediately and coat with oil. Please note that black iron products are not suitable for dishwashers.
