Go directly to seasoning

This is what you really need to know about your cast iron pan

When you start baking with your cast-iron pan, you go through a number of stages. Such as 'before cooking', 'while cooking' and 'after cooking'. We have listed the most important information for you so that your cast-iron pan will grow older than you. That way, you will enjoy your cast iron pan for a lifetime.

Before you start cooking

  • Ingredients at room temperature
    Be sure your ingredients are at room temperature first and that the food is as dry as possible before putting it in the pan. Do not turn the hob up to the highest setting to begin with; let your pan warm up gradually to avoid warping.
  • First warm the pan up
    Is the pan nice and warm? Then just add oil or butter.

While cooking

  • Be patient
    Don't panic if you see food catching on the bottom, stay calm and patient. If necessary, turn down the temperature of your heat source. This lets the food work free by itself.
  • Use metal kitchen utensils
    While cooking, using metal kitchen utensils is no problem. So just use your fork or a spatula.

After cooking

  • Don't leave any food in the pan
    Do not leave any food behind in your cast iron pan, as this might damage the natural non-stick coating.
  • Let the pan cool down a bit
    Let your pan cool down a bit before starting to wash it. This helps prevent the pan from warping.
  • Wash your pan by hand
    This pan is not suitable for the dishwasher. It affects the natural non-stick coating.


  • Use water and a washing-up brush
    Wash the pan once it's cooled down using a washing-up brush under running water to preserve the non-stick coating. Don't use soap or scourers. Use our scrubbing mat if you often get problems with food sticking.
  • Dry the pan thoroughly
    Dry your pan thoroughly after washing and wipe it with a drop of oil.
  • Preventing rust
    Always put pans away somewhere dry.

Avoid thermal shock

  • Never place a cold pan on maximum heat
    Never place a cold pan on the highest heat setting. So never use the booster button on induction and never set the gas hob to the highest flame. Heat the pan on a moderate setting at first, so it heats up gently before turning it up to the highest setting.
  • Never run a hot pan under a cold tap
    Let your pan cool down for a bit after use. Running a hot pan under a cold tap runs the risk of it warping.


  • Seasoning in the oven
    Seasoning in the oven is best because each pan is heated through evenly, so it ends up seasoned properly.
  • Seasoning on a gas hob
    Ideal for low-sided frying pans. Your cast iron pan will be seasoned in just a jiffy.
  • Season it several times
    The more you season a pan, the better it becomes. It's fine to do this several times in a row. Our seasoning oil is great for doing this.
