Designed by Proprietor Galen Lehman, this skillet is infused with nitrogen, creating a harder-than-common-cast-iron, food-safe finish. It has all the benefits of cast iron but with a surface that can't be scratched off, will never chip, resists rust and creates a non-stick surface
Personally Designed by Galen Lehman!
Designed by Proprietor Galen Lehman, he first created this skillet for his wife after learning of the advantages of nitriding. She loved it so much that he wanted you to have one, too.
Helpful Hint: Care and cleaning of cast iron cookware is easy! It may be just a little different from what you are used to, though.
Daily usage: Unlike conventional seasoned cast iron cookware, this skillet can be scoured. Its non-stock properties are from nitrogen infused into the iron, not seasoning that only lies on the surface. So, scour to your hearts content! Hand washing is best. Washing in a dishwasher may cause rust stains. Rust stains can be removed by seasoning the pan.
Seasoning: Seasoning is not needed, unlike other cast iron cookware. However, the non-stick properties of the pan can be slightly improved if you season it. If the pan rusts, seasoning it will remove the rust. Detailed instructions for this are included with the pan. In nutshell, you can season it by frying a batch of bacon or coating the pan with cooking oil and heating it in your oven. If you season it, keep in mind that scouring will remove the seasoning.
To remove cooked on food: Pour enough water into the skillet to cover the cooked-on residue. Bring the water to a rolling boil. Carefully pour off the water. Rinse pan until cool. Wipe clean with a plastic scouring pad. If you seasoned the pan, this will not remove the seasoning. This process sterilizes the pan. You can dry and store the pan without washing it.
Black residue left on the pan after cleaning? This is harmless carbon residue left from cooking or seasoning. If it bothers you, you can remove it by the gentle scouring. If you like the pan seasoned, keep in mind that scouring it can remove the seasoning.
White residue left on the pan after cleaning? This is harmless calcium deposits from your water. To remove, scour the pan. Then, mix 1/2 cup vinegar with 1/2 cup baking soda in a plastic container. Spread the paste on the white stains and let soak. Wash and scour pan. Repeat if needed. (This treatment will remove seasoning.)
