Step one, wash your cast iron skillet
under hot water with a stiff brush.
00:19.109 --> 00:24.148

with a paste of water and kosher salt.

00:26.948 --> 00:31.764
Step three, dry your cast iron
skillet with a clean kitchen towel and
00:31.764 --> 00:35.348
you can finish drying it
on the stove over low heat.
00:35.348 --> 00:39.005
Step four, to season,
apply a light coat of vegetable oil,
00:39.005 --> 00:41.529
and you can rub that
in with a paper towel.
00:41.529 --> 00:45.629
00:45.629 --> 00:50.689
Now you're ready to store
that in a dry place.
00:50.689 --> 00:55.488
Now remember to avoid all types of soap
when cleaning your cast iron skillet.
00:55.488 --> 00:57.928
