Caring for your Road kitchen

These are the only rules you need to follow to have a successful lifelong relationship with your cast iron pan.

• Season it when you get it. To season your pan, rub a little vegetable oil into the it with some paper towel. Put it in the oven at 220 degrees celsius for 1.5hrs. Let it cool naturally in the oven overnight and you are good to go! For best results you can repeat this process once or twice more.
• Whilst on the road, simply rinse your pan with water then wipe it dry with a cloth or paper towel.
• We recommend you give it a thorough clean after each trip. Give it a good scrub with water and the rough side of a sponge, then dry with paper towel. As this is a camping tool and potentially could not be used for prolonged periods of time, it would be a good idea to season the pan after each trip. It’ll prevent any rust spots appearing and ensure your cast iron is well looked after and ready for your next trip.
• The best way to keep your seasoning maintained? Just use your pan a lot! The more you use it, the better that seasoning will become.
• Avoid drastic changes in temperature. If you have been cooking and the skillet is very hot and you put it in cold water there is a chance the iron will crack.
• Don’t put any part of your Road Kitchen in the dishwasher.
• No need to use soap. Ever. Simple!
