Basically, skillets are cooking utensils that are compatible with gas stoves and ovens, so if you want to use them with an IH cooking heater, be sure to check them out.
How to season Daiso's skillets?
Skillets are not meant to be used out of the box.
Perform a care called "seasoning" to remove the rust preventives attached to the skillet before using it.
The seasoning process is as follows.
- Wash with dishwashing detergent
- Heat the skillet to remove all moisture
- Apply a thin layer of cooking oil
The skillet should only be washed with detergent the first time.
Before using it in full-scale cooking, it is recommended to stir-fry the vegetable scraps to eliminate the irony smell peculiar to cast iron.
For the second and subsequent cleaning, after using the skillet, remove dirt with a sponge or scrubbing brush and rinse with hot water. At this time, be careful not to wash with dishwashing detergent.
And if you follow the steps 2 and 3 for seasoning, the skillet will become more oily and less likely to burn.
If you heat the skillet and immediately cool it in water and wash it, it may crack due to sudden temperature changes.
When washing, please choose whether to wash with water or hot water depending on the temperature of the skillet.
Daiso's skillet What items would you like to use together, such as a lid or something to hold?
Introducing items you should prepare when purchasing a skillet at Daiso.
・Handle cover・Potholder・Brush・Cutting board
First of all, the purchase of the "handle cover" to be attached to the handle of the skillet has a high priority.
It gets very hot when heated, so if you don't wear a steering wheel cover, you'll burn your hands.
Buy a handle cover so that you can hold the handle when shaking the skillet to stir-fry ingredients or when placing food on a plate.
At the sales floor where Daiso's camping goods are lined up, some of them are made of leather and some are made of cloth.
In addition, pot holders and brushes are useful for seasoning skillets.
Even with the handle cover on, the heat of the skillet will be transmitted to your hands, so if you want to wash the skillet immediately after cooking, we recommend bringing a pot holder.
The more you use a skillet, the less likely it is to burn, but depending on what you cook, it may be difficult to wash off.
It is convenient to have a brush because it is easier to scrub and remove dirt than a sponge.
Lastly, the item I would like to recommend is the "cutting board".
You can use it as a "nabeshiki" when you want to put the skillet on the table as it is, and it's very stylish!
In addition, the author loves to use it because it looks beautiful when arranging bread and snacks.
