cast iron pots....
the other i was watching Secrets of a Restaurant Chef with Anne Burrell and i saw she had some cast iron pots and the insinde of the pots were black....which i am very interested because mine are stained and no matter what i do and try i cant get them stainfree.....does anyone knoe where i could buy them??!!
If you live in or near a big city they might have a restaurant equipment store. They will probably be really expensive. As for stains after washing your casts iron dishes take vegetable oil and lightly rub it into the pan/pot, this will help it against rust and stains. Hope this helps good luck
As per Cory's response, check out restaurant supply stores. If you live in Toronto, check out the Healthy Butcher. They carry "Lodge" line of fry pans..I bought a 12" for $40. Google for their sites.
I know you can bring your old pans back to "life" by re-seasoning them. Beef lard is the best but you can get buy with Crisco or maybe bacon grease although you will get the flavour of same.
If you're not sure how to season, google "seasoning cast iron pans". Most sites dedicated to this will also tell you how to clean the pans each time.One thing, never use soap to clean the pans and always make sure they are completely dry (place in oven for 1 1hour @ 250 F) otherwise the rust will come back.
i forgot to mention i have enameled cast iron pots so they're not rust stains they are....(i'm guessing)..from the food
Hi Lady357 ,
For your baked on enamel cast iron pots.
May I suggest you make a soft paste with baking soda and water , apply it to the stains and let it sit overnight . Scrub clean the next morning . For very stubborn stains repeat again.
Hi Lady 357
I guess Anne Burrell's are not enamel coated if they are black. I have an old set of Le Creuset which are enamel coated (white) and are not pretty to look at but they still do the trick. In any event, check out the Lodge site, they also do enamel and don't charge a billion dollars for a "special cleaner" as Le Creuset does...here ya go
This is a Q&A site..the last questions deal with enamel.
I prefer the non-enamel variety (except for eggs on a campfire)...all purchased used from the local Salvation Army, Value Village and an Army Suplus store...at least a dozen pc's for less than 50 bucks.
One of the best gifts I received!
I am from cajun country so buying a cast iron pot with an enamel coating
seems like cheating, since you are supposed to be seasoning them with
every meal and the pot should be better and better every time you use
it, but I must have gone wrong somewhere along the way.Finest collection of Diamond Earrings, Wedding Rings, Eternity Rings, Silver Bangles and Gift Jewellery available online with huge savings - 28 day Refund.
I got the Le Creuset black enamel pot as a present from my hubby. He bought it at Nella Cucina in Toronto but here's a site that you may be able to get it from:
This is what it looks like:
