Benefits of Cast Iron Cookware

You don't have to be a world-class chef to enjoy the benefits of using quality cast iron cookware in your kitchen.

  • Known for its versatility, durability and heat retention properties, cooking with a cast iron pot or pan will enhance the flavour of your meal. Popularised in European and Asian cooking, the cookware is ideal for casseroles, stews or slow-cooked meats and vegetables.
  • One of the big appeals to using cast iron cookware is how easy it is to look after. The surface is seasoned with either polymerised fat or oil, creating a non-stick coating. This helps protect the cookware from rust and prevents the surface from burning. As cast iron can tolerate very high heat, our range is ideal for cooking outdoors on an open fire.
  • Maintaining the cookware is as easy as washing it with warm water and wiping it with a dry cloth after cooking. Many chefs advise against using techniques such as scouring or dishwashing as these will damage or remove the non-stick coating.

How to look after cast iron cookware?

To properly care for cast iron cookware, make sure to season it before use by applying a thin layer of oil and baking it.

Additionally, periodically re-season the cookware to maintain its non-stick surface.

Why is cast iron cookware better?

Raw vs enamelled cast iron cookware

Raw cast iron is best for searing meats and specialty cooking, plus raw cast iron needs to be seasoned and maintained properly. On the other hand, enamelled cast iron is easy to clean, maintain and great for a variety of purposes.
