Now let's get to how to clean your Lodge cast iron cookware...
The three most important things to remember are:

  • #1: Never use soap to clean. In the Lodge video above,
    you'll note that the instructions are to use soap "if desired."
    Here's what you need to know... If you use soap you'll make
    your food taste like soap! That's because anything you put
    on your Lodge is seasoning for the next time you use it.
    Instead, you can boil and gently loosen the food to clean.
    The dishwasher-safe, premium-grade stainless steel chain,
    picture left makes for easy cleaning of any cast iron
    cookware whether it's a baking sheet, tea pot, cookie sheet,
    cauldron, tortilla press, hibachi, or cornbread pan!

  • #2: Always keep your cast iron dry. When cast iron is wet,
    it will rust. That's why it's important to thoroughly dry your
    cast iron cookware. Never leave it overnight in water. Make
    sure between use to store in a warm, dry place. Also, be
    sure to store lids separately or cracked so air can circulate!

  • #3: Regularly oil your cast iron (that's the seasoning).
    Before use, your Lodge cast iron pots, pans and dutch ovens
    will have a seasoning with oil, which adds flavoring to your
    meals and a healthy dose of iron. To replace the seasoning
    applied by the manufacturer you can choose your favorite oil
    whether it's lard, olive oil, coconut oil, or your favorite
    vegetable oil. Some claim that because you've got your
    Lodge well seasoned with oil that you'll use less oil to cook
    or bake.

Cleaning your Lodge is easy: Just wipe away the food after use
and clean with hot water if necessary. Dry thoroughly and use an
inexpensive oil to coat the cooking surface. This restores the
"seasoning." Try the Lodge chain to clean like the pros.

Get into Lodge!
Lodge is a healthy cast iron cooking essential for your kitchen.
Lodge comes in a variety of sizes and styles to meet all your
cooking needs. If you already have a Lodge, then add a grill
press, pan scraper or bacon seasoning to your kitchen.

Here are some essential Lodge cast iron pieces essential in the
prepper's kitchen:

  • Cast iron stove. Nothing beats living off the grid with a cast
    iron stove as it brings a great feeling of self-reliance. It
    heats your home and helps you purify water and cook so long
    as you have a fuel source (wood or charcoal). Your cast iron
    stove is a survival lifeline.

  • Tortilla Press. If you buy a tortilla press, pictured immediate
    right, be sure to stock up on masa harina. Spanish for
    "dough," masa is the flour of finely ground maize, hominy or
    corn. It's basically been dried, cooked, ground, soaked in
    lime and then dried again. It reconstitutes easily with warm
    water to make corn tortillas, empanadas, pupusas and
    tamales. Read more about Mexican food storage.

  • Lodge Dutch oven. The classic accessory, you can buy a
    dutch oven with feet (for a fire pit) or without feet for your
    cast iron cookstove. Both versions are pictured above.

  • Lodge skillets. A Lodge 12-inch cast iron skillet is around
    $19 and with available FREE shipping on combined orders of
    more than $25. Pair it with the six-inch skillet, which is
    around $9 and get the free shipping.

  • Lodge Logic Pro Cast Iron Grill/Griddle. A best seller with
    Amazon, the Lodge griddle, pictured above left, is a
    reversible grill.

You'll find your Lodge indispensable for all kinds of cooking. Like
the book says, there are 101 things you can do with a Dutch oven.

Happy Endings...
From fried eggs to peach cobbler, you'll appreciate Lodge cast iron
for camping or your kitchen. You'll feel better about the cooking
you'll do for your family and you may even decide to throw away
the microwave. It's super quick and easy to heat up leftovers in
your Lodge.

  • Can you use soap? Can you use soap on cast iron? This is a
    heated issue and Lodge knows it. That's why in their video
    they say to "use soap if desired." Is it necessary to use
    soap? No. Should you use soap? Happypreppers.com says no,
    never wash cast iron cookware with soap or the future food
    you make in it will taste like soap. If you use soap on your
    cast iron, you're using soap for seasoning. So sure, go ahead
    and use soap if soap seasoning is desired! There, now you
    have your answer as to
