This product is coated with a natural oil finish, giving it a distinct advantage over most other cast iron products. As a result of this finish, it is safe to apply heat even without anything inside. 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. Cooking at a higher temperature will result in water extremely quickly, thereby preventing sogginess.
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 for additional protection.
The foundry takes extra care at this point, seasoning each piece with oil that has been mixed with nontoxic bamboo ash to yield a lustrous finish. These distinguishing features of its manufacture not only make the ironware rust-resistant, but also allow oils to permeate well into the cookware's surface. The absence of Teflon or other synthetic coatings improves heat capacity, thus delivering the higher temperatures required by professional chefs directly to the ingredients.
