How to use and clean iron pans after curing

To use the pan, we put it to heat in our heat source -are suitable for gas fire, electric, ceramic and induction- and add a little butter, oil or fat, and we have the iron pan ready for frying or Skip the food .
When finished, we thoroughly scrub the pan always by hand - they are not suitable for the dishwasher - and with a little paper moistened in oil, we give a layer on the inside surface to leave it lightly greased and avoid its possible oxidation.

In case of any food sticking or grabbing, which will happen more at the beginning when the curing of the pan is not yet complete because the more we use it, the better it will work and the more non-stick it will be made, it is convenient to remove it with hot water and scrub , but never leave the pan to soak , but rub with patience for a few minutes.

Once the surface is clean, grease it lightly with the kitchen paper soaked in oil and store it in a dry place.

My recommendation is that during the first five or six times you use them as a frying pan until the pan goes dark and is perfectly non-stick, at which point you can also use it as a griddle to brown the food and caramelize its surface.
