Lodge cookware is known for lasting generations, but like any heirloom, our cast iron and seasoned steel require a little TLC to preserve that prized finish. Seasoning is an ongoing process that builds up with use and maintenance, giving you the familiar black patina that is naturally non-stick. Here’s how to maintain your seasoning: 1. Clean and dry cookware thoroughly. 2. Spray cookware enough to lightly coat cooking surface. 3. Rub oil into cooking surface with a cloth or paper towel, removing any excess.
