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.
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.
