CAST IRON

Proudly South African

Our traditional range of potjies are oil cured which means they have no coating other than a protective layer of vegetable oil to prevent rusting and to help with curing during storage.

Our enamel range of potjies are fully coated on the inside and out, in a tough, durable vitreous enamel coating. These products therefore do not need any treatment or curing and will not rust. To preserve the enamel coating it is recommended that wooden utensils are used.

How to Care for the cast iron pots?

PREPARING YOUR OIL-CURED POT FOR USE

Wash out thoroughly with boiling water and dry. Coat the inside with cooking oil (or vegetable fat) and heat until the pot begins to smoke. When cool enough, using a paper towel, wipe inside clean.Repeat until towel wipes clean. The potjie pot is now ready for use. The more you use it the better it becomes.

AFTER EACH USE

Rinse with warm water and use a brush or scraper to remove stuck-on bits. For really stuck-on food, scrub with salt and oil, rinse and wipe clean. Dry the pan and coat with a thin layer of oil. Store until ready to use. Cool the pan and store until ready to cook again.

STORING YOUR POTJIE

After each use, wash the potjie pot and dry over heat source to remove excess moisture. Coat the inside with cooking oil or Spray and Cook. Store your potjie with the lid off and absorbent paper inside.
