FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Q. What is Meyer Grill Pan used for? What is the USP of this product?
A: This is the perfect cookware to replicate restaurant-like grills. The ridges induce crusty, tasty char-grill marks on vegetables, cottage cheese, meat, fish, etc. If you season it properly, this will act like a non-stick cookware surface and help you cook with minimal oil.
Q: What is it made of/What type of material has been used?
A: Heavy gauge cast iron construction that will last for ages.
Q: Is it durable?
A: Cast iron is exceptionally durable and can last for ages, if used properly. In fact, you can also restore rusted cast iron cookware by following proper cleaning and seasoning process.
Q: Is it safe and hygienic?
A: It is completely toxin free. This cast iron product doesn’t have any chemical or synthetic coating, therefore, is completely safe to use. If seasoned properly and regularly, the cast iron tawa will develop a patina/layer and will perform like a non-stick cookware.
Q. Is it pre-seasoned?
A. Yes. It has been pre-seasoned with 100% pure vegetable oil. However, you are recommended to season it before using it.
Q: What is the handle made of?
A: Cast Iron.
Q: Does the handle heat up?
A: Yes. Use Hot Handle Holder or Oven Mitten while holding the handle for safety and to avoid potential burns.
Q. How good is the heat conductivity?
A: The material heats quickly and evenly throughout the tawa body. The cast iron cookware is valued for its heat retention properties; it retains more heat than pans with a non-stick surface.
Q: Does it corrode or rust?
A: If you season it well and never leave moisture on the cast iron cookware (always wipe it and store in a dry place), you can easily prevent rusting and get a smoother almost non-stick surface which lasts you longer.
Q: How easy it is to clean the Cast Iron tawa?
A: Wash cast iron by hand with a soft scrub. If needed, use a pan scraper if the food is stuck on the tawa. If you are not able to clean food with soft scrub, you may use baking soda or vinegar and little water; put the pan on heat for a couple of minutes then use the scraper/scrubber to remove the food. Ensure that it is wiped properly and stored in a dry place. When you want to use the pan again please repeat the process of seasoning.
DON’T soak it in water or use strong detergents.
Q: How to season a cast iron cookware?
A: Heat up the tawa on high flame, rub any oil available in your kitchen on its surface using a kitchen towel. Keep heating the pan until it reaches its smoking point. Repeat the process for about 15-20 minutes for the first few uses. Over a period of time the tawa will develop its own patina and will become stick-resistant. Do not wash using a scouring/abrasive scrub as this will break down the coating and the entire process will be required to be repeated again. Store in a dry place to prevent the pan from rusting.
Q: Is there a lifetime warranty on this product?
Q: Is it compatible with all cook tops?
A: Yes. It is suitable for all cook tops including induction.
Q. Can this be used on a campfire?
