  • Let's Settle This: How to Care for Cast-Iron

    499,465 views 2 years ago
    This week Reactions takes chemistry to the kitchen, or at least to cast iron skillets. Science helps to answer how we should take care of these bad boys and how to season them. Cast-Iron skillets are one of the kitchen's ultimate multitools with some big time advantages over your everyday, stock aluminum pan. Today we're taking a look at why these pans rule, and for you kitchen know-it-alls out there, pay close attention: we're using chemistry to prove the right way to season and treat a cast-iron skillet.
