I use it almost everyday in my kitchen because I love one-pan meals and this skillet is perfect for that. I also love the fact that it is great for cooking on high heat, it’s tough, durable and you only need a thin layer of oil to cook the food evenly without burning it. And on top of that, this type of skillet is awesome for roasting, sautéing, grilling, broiling and shallow frying in a small quantity of oil, which means you can make almost everything with it.
But one question that I always get from my readers on my blog, emails and social media is what I use to clean my cast iron skillet. So, today I decided to share with you all these 4 great accessories for cleaning cast iron skillets that will make you save your time in the kitchen and clean your skillet like a pro 😉
When I first bought my cast iron skillet I was cleaning it with a sponge (so wrong) and obvious it wasn’t doing a great job. So I bought a kitchen brush designed specifically for cast iron. Wow what a great choice I made. Now if my cast iron skillet is not very dirty I just turn on the tab with hot water, scrub the skillet with the brush and done.

So, this is a situation where you may need to use a pan scraper. It’s super durable and it comes in 4 different shaped corners for cleaning any shaped pan.

The cast iron soap is super natural and doesn’t contain parabens, phosphates, or synthetic foaming agents.
