First use: Burn-in
If you want to use new cast iron products, they must be baked in. This causes a
perfect non-stick coating and prevents the product from rusting. To burn cast iron you need The
Windmill® seasoning/cast iron conditioner (TWM090) and a cotton cloth.
Follow the steps below (see also back cover):
- Clean the Dutch Oven with hot water and then dry it well.
- Heat a closed barbecue or oven to 120 degrees Celsius, place the product in
oven and let the cast iron get very hot. The heat opens the pores of the cast iron and
the moisture evaporate. This is very important, because moisture in cast iron can lead to rust.
- When the pan is hot, apply cast iron conditioner to the cast iron with a cotton cloth. Not too fat and
don't forget to grease the outside. The wooden handles of the pie-irons must be removed
when you put it in the oven or barbecue!
- When the product is well coated, heat it to 160˚C. As soon as the product starts to smoke, you can
let it cool.
- Repeat steps 1 to 4 at least three times. The more often the steps are repeated, the more beautiful the cast iron
is becoming. After burning, the product is immediately ready for use.
