Cast Iron Cookware

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a couple pieces of cast iron cookware. In particular, the skillet has sentimental value and I would like to keep using it. I've read that you can put it in a self cleaning oven to kill old gluten. What if that  is not available? How hot does the temp gave to get and for how long? We are thinking about putting it on our grill. It gets to 550*. Would that work?

Many people here are still using their cast iron they had pre celiac. Yes, you put them in the oven on the clean cycle & then re-season afterward.

I don't know how hot for how long so can't answer your question.

I put soapy water in a  cast iron skillet and boiled it on the stove.  Then scrubbed it with a steel wool pad.  Or maybe it was the other way round.  But anyway, it was fine and I had no problem using it after that.   Just heating the iron up in a stove isn't going to remove the residue of gluten.  You have to physically scrub the pan to do  that, IMHO.  But you could literally sand away an 1/8 inch from most cast iron pans and not hurt them.  It's not really that hard to clean them up.

Job 30:27 My bowels boiled, and rested not: the days of affliction prevented me.

Have a good day! 🙂 Paul

I guess you could try, but it depends on how crusty the pan is.   I put mine in the oven (clean cycle) and then re-seasoned them.  I did not touch my grandfather's frying pan though.  It is crusty and is from the 1930's.  I thought it might break.  Instead, I tucked it away to be handed down to my daughter (who does not have celiac disease).  It made the best fried chicken though!   Had to put away the lamb cake mold we use for Easter as well.   There were just too many cracks (like my bundt and tart pans that were sold at a garage sale).   That's been in our family for several generations too.  Better to be safe than sorry.  

When I was diagnosed, I had been married for close to 25 years.  Instead of an anniversary party, I bought myself lots of new kitchen ware.  My old stuff was worn out!
