Cast Iron Grilling FAQs

Cast iron seasoning is simply oil baked onto the iron. At Lodge, we start by adding a layer of soy-based vegetable oil to the cookware and baking it onto the surface at a high temperature. Learn more about cast iron seasoning and how to do it at home. Here is a list that you can view a comprehensive list of different oils to use at.

For a small amount of spot rust: Wash your grill with warm, soapy water and a scrub brush, dry promptly with a lint-free cloth or paper towel, and rub with oil. If that doesn’t work, use the Lodge Rust Eraser first, followed by the above cleaning steps.

For a large amount of rust:
1. Scour the surface with warm, soapy water and a metal scouring pad. It’s okay to use the scouring pad and soap since you are preparing to re-season the cookware. Rinse and hand dry thoroughly.
2. Apply a very thin, even layer of cooking oil to the cookware (inside and out). Keep in mind if you use too much oil, your cookware may become sticky.
3. Place the cookware in the oven upside down on the top rack and place aluminum foil on the bottom rack to catch any excess oil. Bake at 450-500° F for one hour. Allow to cool and repeat as necessary to achieve the classic black patina.

Soaking cast iron in water is a recipe for rust. If you need to remove sticky or stubborn stuck-on food, use a nylon scrubbing brush or a pan scraper and rinse under warm water. Be sure to thoroughly dry and oil your grill. Note: If you do accidentally leave your grill in water for too long and it develops rust, don’t panic! With a little extra care, you can remove the rust and continue using your cast iron cookware. Check out this page to find out how.

No, our cast iron cookware should be washed by hand. A dishwasher will remove the seasoning and likely cause rust.
