I love my cast iron cookware. Cleaning is made so simple with this chain mail scrubber.
If I am working at the stove, I am most likely cooking on seasoned cast iron. I like it so much I own two of this set, one for home and one for camping. Cleaning up is so simple! I either use one of these scrapers Mark wrote about, or this chain mail scrubber.
Get the cast iron pan warm, add a little hot water and scrub away with the chain mail. Rinse it out and dry well with a towel.
