The correct use of Cast Iron Pot cooking two principles
Although the cast iron pot is durable, uniform heat and good heat storage and other advantages, but also because of the material containing a large number of pig iron, resulting in easy corrosion. So the use of pot no enamel (enamel) processing cast iron pot to pay attention to two points:
1. Before the first use to go through a pot program, the future after each use should also use oil to raise the pan, to produce a layer of protective film to prevent rust.
2. Avoid cooking acidic foods (such as tomatoes, vinegar, etc.), so as not to produce chemical reactions with iron, so that food discoloration.
Following the previous article, “How to Pretreat Your Cast Iron Cooker”, we introduce a simpler surface treatment method: how to use the pot. (After all, in the country, not every family has a large oven can be used.) Although the cast iron pot factory has been first with vegetable oil seasoned over, but according to the official website of the argument, this simple pot is still essential.
The first use of pot method
First of all, the pot placed in the gas furnace (gas, gas furnace can be) with a small fire slowly heating, and then add water to the fire after the boil. Or, when the pot is heated, pour it into boiling hot water. Generally with a quick pot to boil water directly into the pot, so more time-saving.
And then use the brush to brush a little bit after the pot (do not use any cleaning agent), the hot water drained. And then put the wok on the fire dry roast, remember to let the pot of water completely volatile to the next step.
When the wok is completely dry, use vegetable oil to boil. We all say lard the best, so I also specifically to the familiar meat stall boss to a few pieces of fat pig fat back ready to give me the iron pot oil maintenance doubled, who knows the maintenance happened to turn to ( Food and Cooking, a book mentioned in a piece of iron pot maintenance methods, only to understand the practical use of vegetable oil is the right way.
The reason is that vegetable oil is rich in unsaturated fatty acids (such as peanut oil, sunflower oil), coated with hot wok on the contact with air, particularly easy to oxidation, polymerization and the formation of a layer of compact protective film to isolate the air and water Erosion, to achieve the purpose of rust. Now, I keep the pot obediently with vegetable oil (sunflower oil) to maintain my pot.
Boil the warm-up action must be a small fire began to gradually heat, do not need to use the fire, otherwise it will take smoke. Remember that the oil action must be in the pot in a warm state of oil, inside and outside the pot should be applied to (including the grip), the oil can be thin layer, do not need too much, then please iron Pot empty burning for 30 minutes, then stood the natural cooling, if the extra grease can be wiped with a kitchen towel can be.
Daily cleaning and maintenance steps:
The future after each use as long as the pot when the hot water can be cleaned, if the food Jiaohe sticky condition, you can directly boil with boiling water for a few minutes, then the brush can be easily removed, remember that absolutely not available Dishwashing and the like. If the bottom of the sticky serious, can add some salt in the pot scrub, the use of matte to strengthen the role of detergency is also a method.
Cast iron material of the pot, after cleaning can not be placed any dry, it is very easy to rust, and abroad are the whole pot thrown into the oven dry, but there are few large oven can be placed under the whole Pot, it is recommended directly on the gas furnace (gas, gas furnace) on the fire to dry it, then hot oil on the line.
Saying that there is no enamel cast iron pot, although the beginning of the need to spend the mind cleaning and maintenance, but through the use of oil after each operation, but can strengthen the appearance of protective layer to make it more robust, my cast iron pot recently used Up, but more and more smoothly!
