Removing rust from Cast iron Camp Cooker


Removing rust

  1. Pour 2 tbsp. salt into the middle of the cooker. Add an equal amount of vegetable oil.
  2. Scrub the cooker vigorously with a folded paper towel, concentrating on the rusted spots but covering all surfaces with the oil and salt mixture. Add more salt or oil as needed.
  3. For more serious rust spots, scrub with fine steel wool.
  4. Wash the cooker with dishwashing liquid and rinse well with hot water. Dry completely.

Seasoning the cooker

  1. A well-seasoned cast-iron cooker will resist rust and create a virtually nonstick surface for cooking. To season it, brush vegetable oil lightly over all its surfaces.
  2. Heat the cooker in an oven at 250°F (120°C) for 1 hour, recoating it with more oil after 30 minutes.
  3. Wipe the cooker well with paper towels, and let it cool completely before using it.
  4. To preserve this natural, protective coating, do not use soap when cleaning a seasoned cooker. Instead, scrub it with salt and oil, rinse it with hot water, then dry it completely over low heat before storing it.
