Hi, i’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant
Supply and we’re here in our test kitchen. In today’s episode I’m going to show you how
to turn your garage sale treasure finds into something restored and beautiful. Here we got some nice cast iron rusted-away
pans we found at a garage sale. What I’m going to do is show you how to restore
these back to some nice beautiful cast iron. Essentially what you really need to do is
you need to scrub away all the rusted iron. That way we can start from scratch of reseasoning
this pan. Now we’re actually going to season our cast
iron. You could use lard, you could use oil, some
sort of fat. We need to cover every piece of surface area of your cast iron with the fat because that’s what’s going to bake in to
season our cast iron pan. Use the handles. You can get bits of the outside
again. Now that I got a nice coat of fat on that
I’m going to turn my burner. Obviously that’s high; we’ll cut it back about
half way, about medium high. We’re just going to let that bake in, round
one. Once you got that first layer of shortening
or fat seasoned in there, kind of cooked out, give it a wipe, get all that residual stuff out of the there. Let it cool down properly. Then what you’re going to want to do is do
that same process one more time. Just because you’ve refurbished the entire
surface you’re going to want to put a nice good layer
of seasoning in there to protect your food. That’s how you properly restore your cast
iron. I’m Chris Tavano for Tundra Restaurant Supply
