Preheat your cast iron in the oven to 200-350 degrees F (93-177 C), this should only take about twenty minutes. That will be enough time to heat the cast iron up for melting the Cast Iron Honeycomb Wax. Please note, this stage will not make your cast iron too hot to handle. You can still hold it with an oven mitt or pot rag.
If you’re using the Cast Iron Honeycomb Wax in a container, just rub some on a rag using a circular motion, then wipe it on your cast iron and follow the exact same steps! Any rag will do, no need to purchase competitors “soaked rag”, you’ll be making your own using either of our product’s packaging. Save yourself some money! Use the same rag over and over!
Slide a thin layer of Cast Iron Honeycomb Wax over the heated cast iron. Then using a paper towel or clean hand towel, wipe the Island Cast Iron Wax all over the cast iron covering every inch. With another paper towel or hand towel, dry it back off as dry as you can leaving only a small trace on your cast iron. Make sure to use an oven mitt or something so you don’t burn yourself.
Place your cast iron back in the oven upside down for one hour at 480-500 degrees F (250-260 C). This will allow for polymerization of Cast Iron Honeycomb Wax for seasoning to occur. When the time is up, simply allow it to cool down enough to repeat the process of melting on the Cast Iron Honeycomb Wax, wiping it off leaving a thin layer and back in the oven! Three applications will be enough and you’re ready to cook! You can also use it after cooking and washing your cast iron. After you wash and dry your skillet, place it back on a burner on low heat. Rub some Cast Iron Honeycomb Wax on the cooking surface and wipe it around covering the surface. This will keep your pans nice and slick, always ready to cook!
