Cast Iron Use & Care
Cast Iron Care Kit.
Heirloom quality cookware deserves superb maintenance. The 3-Piece FINEX Care Kit contains everything you need to keep your cookware pristine and preserved for generations.
Included: Chain Link Scrubber, Wooden Scraper, and Organic Flaxseed Oil Eyedropper.
Pre-Seasoned For Cooking.
Pre-seasoned with 100% organic flaxseed oil for a durable, stick-resistant finish, FINEX is ready to cook right out of the box. Rinse new cookware with warm water and dry completely. To re-enforce seasoning use a little extra oil or cook something extra fatty, like bacon for the first few uses. A darker patina will develop over time, indicating a thicker natural seasoning, and will enhance the stick-resistant cooking surface.
Cooking with Cast Iron.
Cast iron may take longer to warm up, preheat your cast iron pan on medium-low heat for a few minutes before cooking.
FINEX’s thick-wall design provides even heat distribution and better retention for searing performance unlike anything else on the market. Perfectly crispy skin and golden brown edges are just minutes away.
Cleaning Cast Iron.
Step 1. Clean
For best results wash your FINEX by hand immediately after use. For ease, clean while still warm. To avoid rust, do not soak, leave in the sink or put the cookware in the dishwasher.
To remove stuck-on food, use water, a dab of soap and our chain link scrubber. Stubborn food grime? Use the wood scraper to loosen stuck on food. The specialty cut fits the ribs of our Grill Pans and features multi-angled sides to reach and remove food from every corner of your cookware.
Step 2. Dry
Thoroughly dry your FINEX with low heat on the stove or in the oven to avoid rust. Do not air dry. Remember, if left wet it will rust.
Step 3. OIL
Using the Eyedropper, apply a drop or two of organic flaxseed oil to your skillet and buff it into the iron with a paper towel or dry dishcloth.

Re-Seasoning Cast Iron.
Cast iron is very durable and forgiving. Scorched, scratched or rusted pans can be returned to perfect working condition with a little elbow grease and some quality oil.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. If your pan has rust, gently remove it using our Chain Link Scrubber. Wash and dry your cast iron cookware thoroughly. Once completely dry, using our Eyedropper apply a very thin layer of organic flaxseed oil to the entire surface of your cast iron pan (including the outside). Buff off any excess oil, then bake for one hour.
