Jason Lowry: Lots of work, I'll just pick one up from Walmart for $20.
Folea Enoh: love the way the oven was at 420
Crayz_daves Build: ppl never use oil to redo a cast Iron use bacon grease or if you can
find it bear grease ,
Pete Horn: Can someone give me a link for where to buy elbow grease?
warhead thegamer: U do know u could've just used coke right
I want your souls: Everyone listen here with cast iron you never want to use soap and seep in
and cause your food to taste like soap also if you cook fish in cast iron
make sure that's all you use it for again it was seep to the pores of the
cast iron and seep into your food.
phdmrlimb: I have a serious amount of rust on my cast iron dutch oven (about ten years
outside) will this still work or is it scrap?
zumbazumba1: NOTHING REMOVES RUST BETTER and CHEAPER THAN VINEGAR- weak 6% that you buy
in store will remove heavy rust.Boil it and you will get stronger
Put the rusted object in vinegar ,let it soak over night and then use :
Old tooth brush and some detergent or hand paste to remove light rust
For heavy rust soak it 2-3 days and every day use tooth brush or wire brush
to remove layers of rust.
leaveitalone: Great tips here, thanks everyone.
John Grosso: Thank you for showing me how to stick a pan in the oven @1:10. Appreciate
joojiebee: I noticed you pressing down on the dutch oven into the bottom of the sink
while scrubbing. If you place a piece of cotton on the base of the sink
then you will not leave marks in the sink after cleaning.
TheWoodman1948: SOAP!! My grandmother would be spinning in her grave! I have been cooking
in Dutch Ovens for over 50 years and I can honestly say I have NEVER used
soap on my ovens! My Gram would have "whupped" me good if I ever did that!
SOAP . . .NEVER! Coarse Salt to scrub with in a warm pan if you must clean
old rust or crap off the oven.
dijornopizza: @TheWoodman1948 how do you clean it then?
LuvTheSnapper: I don't even "wash" my cast iron. I just run hot water over it, wipe it
with a towel, and its done.
christschool: As others have said, never, never use soap on cast iron.
mh3rdwheel: upside down to dry it good then flip it over to dry more. Then get the lard
out of the pantry, get a rag and dip the rag into the lard and wipe the
skillet or whatever with the rag then let set for a few minutes then put
with the rest of the skillets, this takes less time and never fails.
Todd Gorla: I have never nor will I ever use any kind of soap in my cast iron. there
are much better ways to clean the rust out if you neglect your cast iron.
Apple cider vinager is one.
ihatesquirrel13: were you using soap ? never use soap on cast iron
KRScorporation: That is not how to clean a Dutch Oven. Never, ever use soap! The soap gets
in the pours of the metal and your food will have soap in it for a long
time and you will spend your spare time in the John. Clean without water by
heating it, purring in Salt and scrub with paper towels. The salt will be
the scrubbing and your elbow grease will do the rest. Yes it is work but it
works great. Then season as the video shows or do it on a campout. Worked
for many years with the Boy Scouts, Soap is BAD.
Sash Wei: did he say elbow grease? can i use butter or olive oil to coat pot?
DoctorJanina: I am looking forward to doing it your way since I do not have time or a
desire to build a BBQ pit. Thanks for making it easy!
Rachel Ward: You don't need to heat the pan to 450 degrees. That high a heat breaks down
almost all oils and creates toxic substances that are bad for humans to
consume. Even heat-stable oils don't stand up well at that high a heat. You
only need to season a pan at 350 degrees, and many oils can handle that
heat without breaking down into nasties.
Eric Raasio: Another way, other than a BBQ pit is to use a self cleaning oven. Start by
buying a fireplace brick from hardware store. Heat it for a few hours on
around 200 to make sure it is dry. Once it cools down. Take out your
racks..place the brick standing up between the elements with the pan on
top. Start the oven clean cycle. This will remove any crust from the
outside if you have been using it on a campfire. When done, use oil to
remove any rust residue and reseason.
Eric Jordan: Forgot to mention, there was that one time, she got an old cast iron
skillet from a friend. It had a rust spot or two, and all I remember Mom
doing, was using steel wool and elbow grease, I asked why she didn't just
warsh it like the other pans, and she said cause once you put soap in, you
may never get it back out. Cast iron absorbs. After removing the rust, heat
in oven or bbq, and give it a coating of oil and let pan cool naturally,
then repeat process 2-3 times for great cast iron cookware
mogges: HAY DUDE NEVER EVER USE SOAP ON CAST IRON.The best way to clean an re
season them is first build your self a fire in a BQ pit. then place the
skillet in the fire up side down.burn off all the crust.once is all burned
off then start by taking lard or bacon grease and coat the inside.put back
on the fire this absorbs the grease into the iron.If you need to clean it
after this is done the USE (SALT) NOT SOAP.THE IRON ABSORBS THE SOAP
Serenity Ookami: thank you so much! this video was exactly what i was looking for. I just
found (today!) an old cast iron dutch oven that had sat outside over a few
winters and the woman who owned it was throwing it out. i rescued it from
the garbage and i wanted to learn what was necessary to restore it. it's
beautiful, and it will be a labor of love, but i'm willing to do it! thank
you so much!
Noahs Ark: Why do this in the house, it stinks something awful. Why not use the bar b
Fred Flintstone: Use Flax oil. It gives the hardest and most durable finish.
Mary H: I have found the best oil to use for seasoning is flax seed oil. Just an
FYI for what it is worth.
MrDeengels: That music is awful!!! Lol
Cream Of Weber: Oh. Good deal then.
vintgeaeagle1: thank you for keeping it simple and minimal, and not talking for 5 minutes
because you like to hear yourself talk. love the tips!
Joe Tactical: Why would that matter? He shared lots of helpful ideas and didn't fill the
video with a lot of fluff... You can take away helpful info or you can
focus on something that doesn't matter...
Hubert N: Aw, it remindes of my Granny taking the cast iron pots to the creek and
using sand to clean them. Thanks fot the memrories neighbor/
JefafaSB: I've always been aware that you can use soap on COLD cast iron, just re
season after the fact.. Food for thought, soaps were originally made from
SizzlechestXXX: The only way to really get rid of rust is to use the electrolysis method.
eminence18: @SANDST0NE nicely put
email16v: Good job dude
Jack T: @TheWoodman1948 HA HA! I know, right? My grandmother would have died if you
tried to wash one of her iron skillets with soap. Her corn bread was always
perfect and would nearly fly out of her skillets.
dick tracy: Don't ever use soap or vegetable oil when cleaning and seasoning cast iron
cookware. Use hot water and beef lard or bacon grease. Deeply-rusted cast
iron ware should be sand-blasted then washed with hot water only, then
warmed in the oven to about 200F and coated with the above, then baked at
400F for a minimum of 3 hours. Your favorite spices mixed into the
seasoning is optional. Wash one more time with a sponge to remove surface
residue and coat with animal fat again upon use. That's it.
DCFunBud: Music is cornball.
deaconblue9038: Really ,I have a new pan I'll have to try that on! Thanx
firedragonblue: OMG PPL!!!! listen to what he is saying for Christ sakes! he is RESTORING
this RUSTY cast iron oven. not "cleaning" a ready to use or previously used
oven. >.> so in this case yes soap is OK! since his putting on the FIRST
coat of seasoning and then adding more layers later. the no soap rule only
applies to items where the seasoning ALREADY on the item wants to be kept.
not in the case of an item being STRIPPED and a new seasoning being
Cream Of Weber: Yeah... you cheated yourself out of money. Since professional sandblasting
costs more than a new oven.
SnafuenFrance: Good, easy advice.
