March 3, 2006, Newsletter Issue #129: Cast Iron Waffle Iron Cleaning

Tip of the Week

Here's an important kitchen cleaning tip for those who are thinking of purchasing a waffle iron. The cast iron on a waffle iron needs to be seasoned to make it non-stick. Coat it liberally with oil or lard and bake it in a slow oven. Never ever clean it again with anything resembling soap. Even the soap you would use for washing dishes. Wipe it clean after each use, after it is seasoned nothing should stick. When you make waffles you will add amounts of oil to the recipe which will keep your irons seasoned. Meanwhile, scrape off the mess as best you can without using soap or cleansers. Using salt as a cleanser should help remove any waffle residue without removing the seasoning on the finish.
