|Vintage 12" x 19" cast iron roasting pan after scrubbing and drying.|
The first step in it's new life with us was to scrub away the debris with a brush, coarse salt, and hot water. I lined my white porcelain sinks with towels as not to beat them up in the process.
After preheating my oven to 200 degrees F. I placed the damp roasting pan in the oven and set the timer for 40 minutes to ensure it was well dried before seasoning. I often dry my cast iron by placing it on the gas burner of my store a few minutes to ensure it is really dry. JUST DO NOT WALK AWAY IF YOU DO THIS!
|Clean, dried, and seasoned, ready to go for years more service.|
