39. Season Your Cast Iron Pans

Cast Iron pans are usually very expensive, but they are an investment that may last a lifetime. After you have used it for a while, though, it may have lost its non-sticking abilities. You need to periodically “season” your cast iron pans, to make cooking easier. First, wash the pan with soap and water. After it’s dried, rub a layer of vegetable oil over the pan’s surface. Then, bake it in the oven at 375 degrees fahrenheit for an hour before letting it cool. Now, you’re ready to cook!
