Cast-Iron seasoning and care for dummies - Page 2

post #21 of 23
I have never used a cast iron waffle maker. But my experience with waffles in general is, when they are done, they let go. The only times I've had them stuck, they weren't done enough. Or I completely forgot to put the oil in the batter. In both cases, the way I get the waffle out is just to keep cooking it. (Even if it cooks too much to eat - it gets super crispy then falls out).

Never occurred to me to wonder about dh's iron levels. But he does donate blood regularly. Maybe that's why the blood bank loves his blood so much.

Did you take it out of the box and start cooking in it? Or did you season it first? I'd season a cast iron waffle maker (I'd love one. It's one of the few cast iron items I don't have) several times with either lard or bacon grease first before I cooked batter in it. And even then I'd grease and preheat every time before I put the batter in it.
