Tips to Make Your Enameled Cast Iron Cookware Last a Lifetime!

Chasseur Enameled Cast Iron Cookware can be an investment which will last you for as long as you cook, if you treat and maintain your cookware properly. By observing a few guidelines, your cast iron cookware will become a well-seasoned and much-loved heirloom to pass on to future generations of fine cooks!
To begin with, a new enameled cast iron pan needs to be washed with warm soapy water, and towel dried. Although the pan is very durable, take care not to drop or knock the pan against a hard surface, such as the sink. This could cause damage to the enameled surface, and lead to possible corrosion of the iron.
Never heat a dry pan over a cook surface. Your cooking oil of choice should completely cover the base of the pan before heating the pan. Using medium and low heats will give you the best cooking results. This includes frying and searing as well. By allowing the pan to heat up slowly and gradually, you will achieve the most thorough and even cooking results possible. Once you have reached the optimum heat for the pan, you can reduce the heat and almost all cooking can be done at a lower temperature. Remember that the line of Chasseur enameled cast iron cookware has an easy lift knob on the lid which is designed for use in ovens up to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Using your cast iron cookware on high heat should be avoided except for boiling water for pasta, rice, etc. Never pre-heat the pan on high heat. Cast iron tends to hold the heat so well that if you overheat the pan, you may be disappointed in the cooking results. Food will tend to stick to the surface and could cause some discoloration or burning.
Always be sure the pan base matches the size of the heating zone. This prevents loss of energy, overheating of the pan handles or sides. Do not allow a pan to boil dry as this could cause damage to the enamel. Never cut food directly on the surface of the pan, or use an electric hand-held mixer or beater in the pan as you may cause permanent damage to the surface.
After use, be sure to allow the cast iron cookware to cool for a few minutes before you immerse it in hot water with a little mild detergent. Never fill a hot pan with cold water, or plunge the pan into a sink of cold water, as the abrupt temperature change could damage the enamel. If there is any burnt or stuck-on residue, allow the pan to soak about fifteen to twenty minutes in the warm water. Wash and then dry your cast iron cookware completely before you store it away. While you are cleaning the pan, this is a good time to check the knob on the lid to be sure it remains tightened.
High quality cast iron cookware should last a lifetime. There is an extensive extensive range of products available specifically designed for flexibility and ease of use. By following the suggestions above, you will enjoy using your Chasseur enameled cast iron cookware for all the styles of cooking you prefer and on any type of cooking appliance.
