Caring for Iron Cookware and Utensils

Our authentic cooking utensils, cutlery, eating utensils, pots, pans, kettles are made with the same materials and in the same way the originals were made. Pefect for re-enactment, from Roman encampments to Viking and Medieval camps, feasts and festivals, your settings will be authentic! To get years of use from forged iron cookware and utensils we recommend the following steps.

How To Season Your Iron Utensils:
1. Scrub well in hot soapy water
2. Dry thoroughly
3. Spread a thin layer of melted shortening or vegetable oil over the skillet
4. Place it upside down on a middle oven rack at 375° (Place foil on a lower rack to catch drips)
5. Bake 1 hour and let cool in the oven

Cast Iron Upkeep:
1. Rinse with warm water and use a brush or scraper to remove stuck-on bits
2. For really stuck-on food, scrub with salt and oil, rinse and wipe clean
3. Dry the pan and coat with a thin layer of oil
4. Store until ready to use
