This product is coated with a natural oil finish, giving it a distinct advantage over most other cast iron kitchenware. As a result of this finish, it's safe to apply heat even when the pan is empty. Most cast iron products feature an interior that is coated with paint, making them highly prone to peeling when in use and during washing when using abrasive cleaning agents. In contrast, the natural oil finish makes the product resistant to rust and able to withstand extremely high temperatures.
Natural oil finish is a relatively new technology that utilizes flaxseed and linseed oil. The vessel is first fired in extremely high temperature (500 to 600Ã‚Â°C or 932 to 1202Ã‚Â°F) to create a natural anti-rust finish. It is then coated in a mixture of flaxseed oil, linseed oil and bamboo charcoal and then refired to for additional protection. Guaranteed to become your favorite cast iron pan in no time, with durable, innovative construction ensuring it will last for years to come.
