Description

 

Our blend of beeswax with carefully selected oils forms a perfect hard, durable coating to protect and extend the life of your cast iron pans, while making non-stick cooking and cleanup easy. 

And we went the extra mile with this blend, matching our pure New Zealand beeswax with New Zealand grown sunflower, rapeseed and olive oils to give you a premium seasoning that is 100% natural, 100% local, and 100% GMO free.

To season new or used cast iron pans

First, if you are restoring an older pan, scrub thoroughly with steel wool and soap to remove any rust, then wash and dry thoroughly. 

Preheat oven to 200°C / 400°F.

Warm your pan gently on the stovetop until the wax blend melts on contact, but the pan is still able to be handled. 
Take a pea-sized piece of the wax blend and allow it to melt in the pan.  With a soft cloth or paper towel, spread the wax blend to apply a thin layer to the pan, making sure to coat all surfaces inside and out, and don't forget the handle. 
Buff away any excess wax.
Place in hot oven upside down for 40 minutes.   The seasoning will smoke as it heats - this is part of the polymerisation process and should be expected. 
Allow to cool in oven.
Reapply 3-5 times to build a good seasoning base.

Once your pan is properly seasoned, this process won't need to be repeated unless the seasoning is damaged.


Maintaining your cast iron pans

After cooking, wash your pan as usual, preferably while still warm.

Dry your pan thoroughly, and place on a warm element to ensure no water remains.   

While the pan is warming on the element, apply a small amount of the wax blend to the cooking surface with a paper towel and buff away any excess.   Allow the pan to heat until smoking, then turn off the heat and let the pan cool slowly.

Cast iron seasoning

This is just the best! A small amount [the size of a pea] is all that is needed to coat the cast iron pan. I am still learning about cast iron cooking and have a few questions, but for now I just want to recommend this product to everyone. Thank you Dee's Bees NZ
