How do I clean my cast iron skillet?

To clean your cast iron skillet before you use it for the first time, you will want to use gentle soap and warm water. Once clean, rinse your skillet and dry it with a towel.

After you’ve cooked your cast iron skillet meals, it’s important to wait until your skillet has had time to cool prior to cleaning. Putting cold water on a hot skillet can hurt your cookware. Once cooled, hand wash your skillet as it is not recommended to put it into your dishwasher. While using a dishwasher won't impact the performance of your GRIZZLY cast iron skillet, it could result in temporary discoloration from water spots and soap.

What makes cast iron skillets so great?

Cast iron skillets are passed down from generation to generation for a reason. These versatile tools can retain and evenly distribute heat. GRIZZLY Cookware, in particular, comes with a comfortable grip, no flavor transference, and a reduced risk of rust. Unlike other types of cast iron cookware, GRIZZLY Cookware has a nickel-plated finish so there is no concern over flavor-leaching, flaking, or chipping.

Is it safe to use nickel-coated skillets?

It's perfectly safe to use nickel-coated skillets. The FDA has approved nickel coating for food surfaces for years, and the proprietary plating process involved in the making of GRIZZLY skillets exceeds medical grade specifications.
