  • How to Bake in Cast Iron (It's Not as Scary as You Think)

    Let’s be real for a minute: your pie is only as good as its crust. You can have the most exquisite fruit or custard filling, but if your pie crust is just so-so, the flavor falls flat. Luckily, we have a simple way for you to step up your pie or bread game this Thanksgiving.

    Three words—cast iron bakeware.

    Rolls in a Cast Iron Pan

    Now, you may already have a cast iron skillet or Dutch oven on which you would stake your life. You already know about the amazing possibilities of sautéing, searing, and even braising in your cast iron cookware. But have you tried your hand at baking yet? We’ve rounded up some of our best cast iron baking tips, so your Thanksgiving pies will turn out with perfect, golden crusts for everyone to enjoy.

    • Be sure your cast iron bakeware is well seasoned just like your skillet or Dutch oven. This will help prevent food from sticking (which is especially important for baking!).

    • Melt a little bit of butter and brown sugar in the bottom of your pie pan before baking for an extra buttery, sweet crust.

    • Use a rubber pot holder like this to protect your table from the hot cast iron after it comes out of the oven.

    • If there is leftover pie, try not to store it in your cast iron dish. The acid in the food might damage your seasoning if left for too long.

    • Cast iron will keep your bread or pie warmer for longer, so plan cooling times accordingly.

    • Preheat your pan for cornbread, biscuits, or muffins if you’d like an especially crispy crust. For pies and cakes, start with a room temperature pan.

    • If your original recipe doesn’t factor in cast iron baking, check your bread or pie about 10 minutes sooner than what is suggested. This is to ensure your food doesn’t burn from the higher, more consistent heat of cast iron.

    • Follow this guide for cleaning up your cast iron after you’re finished baking.

  • How to Care for Your Griddle

    Griddle Care & Maintenance

    Most of our professional griddles come with a True-Seasoned Finish, just like all of our cast iron. To keep this finish in tip-top condition, your griddle needs a little TLC every now and then. By following the guide below, you will help keep your griddle clean, prevent rust, and build up the glass-like finish to keep food from sticking.

    Temperature Management

    Giving your griddle time to pre-heat properly will ensure you’re getting the best cooking performance possible. Start by setting your heat to Medium or Med-Low for about 5 minutes. This should bring the griddle surface temperature to about 350°-400° F, depending on the weather and environment. Then turn the heat to Med-Low or Low for 2-3 minutes for uniform heat across the entire cooking surface. The steel heats up quickly but cools slowly, so you’ll have plenty of heat to work with even after you turn down the burners. You’re ready to get cooking.

    Managing the heat on your griddle is important to prevent any possible damage. While the steel is strong and durable, you should only use Low or Medium heat settings. This is especially important if you want to use different heat settings on a large griddle that covers multiple burners. You have the capability to warm a tortilla on one side and cook a fajita mix on the other, but you want to keep both settings on Medium or lower.

    Cleaning

    After each use, clean off any food particles while the griddle is still warm. You might want to use a metal spatula or chain mail scrubber to remove stubborn bits. Then wash with hot water, mild dish soap (never use abrasive detergent), or our Cast Iron Cleaner. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Never scour or use a dishwasher, as this could chip the nice, seasoned finish you’re going for.

    Seasoning

    Once your griddle is clean, slowly warm it up again on your stove. Apply a thin layer of Cast Iron Conditioner or cooking oil. We recommend Cast Iron Conditioner because it has a palm oil base, which boasts a longer shelf life than any other natural oil. Be sure that the entire surface, including all corners, have been coated thoroughly. This will ensure that all surfaces of your cookware will be properly seasoned. This finish helps protect the steel or cast iron from rust and contributes to a nonstick cooking surface. Let your griddle cool, then wipe off excess conditioner or oil with a clean cloth.

    Storage

    After your griddle is clean, dry, and seasoned, you will need to store it in a dry, clean area. You can use one of our carry bags, specifically designed to hold your professional griddle. If you store it in one of these bags long-term, leave the zipper open 2-4 inches so the metal doesn’t “sweat.” This will prevent rusting.

    Pro Tips

    • • Be sure that your griddle is level before cooking, so that any juices or grease will drain properly. To test your griddle’s angle, pour a cup of water on the corner farthest from the grease drain and see where it flows.
    • • Use our grease cup accessory for an easy clean-up.
    • • If you need to adjust the heat on your griddle, do so a little at a time. The metal will heat quickly and cool slowly.
    • • Lightly oil the griddle before each use while it’s heating up. You can use Camp Chef Conditioner or cooking oil.
    • • The steel will continue to antique and darken with each use—it’s okay for it to accumulate a patina.
    • • Rusty, metallic tastes or discolored foods are signs of inadequate seasoning or may result from cooking heavily acidic foods. If this occurs, wash the griddle thoroughly and re-season.
    • • Check out all the cooking accessories we offer to go along with your griddle. You’ll be cooking like a pro in no time.

  • How to Clean Cast Iron

    Cast iron is the darling of the culinary world. It's versatile, timeless, high quality, and tough as nails. It will last you a lifetime if you give it a little TLC from time to time in the form of cleaning and seasoning. "But," you might be thinking, "I've always heard that cast iron is a pain to maintain." We're here to prove that wrong. Taking care of your cast iron doesn't have to be a chore. With the tips below, it will become a habit in no time.

    For Light Cleaning:

    If there isn't any baked-on food particles or sticky residue, then follow these instructions for cleaning your cast iron.

    1. While cookware is still warm (not hot) rinse with hot water.

    2. Use a stiff-bristled brush (without soap) to scrub the inside, removing any remaining food bits.

    3. Pat dry with a towel and let sit in an open air rack.

    4. If the the finish looks black and shiny, you're all done! If the finish is starting to look marbled, dull, or gray, then you can spritz the surface a few times with our Cast Iron Conditioner. Dab the conditioner into the cast iron with a paper towel or lint-free cloth.

     

    For Heavy-Duty Cleaning:

    1. Remove all food particles from your cast iron cookware using a a plastic pan scraper or one of our chain mail scrubbers. A chain mail scrubber works really well because it's tough enough to remove stubborn food (and even rust), but it won't scrape off your cast iron's finish.

    2. Fill the dish with hot water and add about 2 teaspoons of Cast Iron Cleaner. Rub the cleaner in with a plastic brush or clean rag. If you're dealing with stubborn or burnt food, let the pan sit with the water and cleaner for about 10 minutes, then scrub. You can also try boiling the water to loosen any residue.

    3. With a stiff-bristled brush, scrub the remaining food bits away and off the iron. Rinse well and pat dry with a towel.

    4. While the dish is still warm, spritz all surfaces a few times with our Cast Iron Conditioner (mentioned above) and dab it around with a clean paper towel or lint-free cloth. Congratulations, you've just cleaned and seasoned your cast iron cookware.
