You are here to save your cast iron skillet from the kiss of death – rust. Not only is it ugly, the food you cook in a rusty skillet won’t taste very good I’m sure.
(Note: Ingesting small doses of rust will not harm you. You would have to eat a significant amount of weight in rust to do yourself real harm.)
WHY IS MY SKILLET RUSTY?
But before we get to fixing your fine piece of cookware, let’s discuss a few possible reasons why you got rust in the first place.
1. You soaked your pan in water or put it in the dishwasher.
Rusting is the chemical breakdown of metal iron. In order for the oxygen to get to the iron, it needs to pass through water first. Lots of water means lots of rust.
2. You did not “season” or oil your pan properly.
(Read below on how to clean and season your pan properly)
We already know that water and oil don’t mix. A layer of oil prevents the oxygen in the air from meeting up with the water on your pan, thus inhibiting rust to form. This is why seasoning your pan with oil will keep it beautiful and functional for a very long time.
