So, get the pre-seasoned cast iron cookware by Meyer and embark on a wonderful cooking journey. But, before you start your culinary voyage, here are some cast iron cookware mistakes that we want you to avoid to ensure that your cookware lasts forever:



1. Soaking it in water

Iron can rust, especially hot iron which means that your recently used skillet is at a real risk of rusting when you let it soak in water.


2. Putting it in dishwasher

Let us just put it very clearly, “Do not put your cast iron pan in the dishwasher”. Why? Because all that work you put into the seasoning and caring for it will disappear once your pots go through that one cycle in the dishwasher.


3. Cleaning it with soap

Use soap for the first wash of your cookware- give it a good rinse with hot soapy water and that is that. After the first wash, use hot water, salt and a non-abrasive brush and no soap.


4. Storing it drippy or wet

Remember to always give your pot or pan a good last wipe with a dry towel before storing it- water leads to rust and rust is the biggest enemy of your cast iron pan.


5. Not seasoning or completely forgoing seasoning

Remember, seasoning cast iron is important to prevent the pan from rusting. This is what will keep your cookware going strong for generations to come.
