  • Enameled Cast Iron

    I bought a cast iron skillet and didn't even realize it is enameled. I thought if it was enameled it would have that white layer, but this is dark. -- definitely enameled though.

    SO do you not treat enameled pans?

    I have 2 enameled pots. Well, one sauce pot and one dutch oven. I prefer enameled cast iron for soups, stews & sauces. As for frying pans... I've never seen them enameled. I would say you don't season them like standard cast iron. No real need to it seems.

      You don't treat them and you may also cook w/ tomatoes or other acidic things that would be a no-no in uncoated cast iron.

        In terms of care and feeding of any pans you have purchased, first rule of thumb is to follow the manufacturers directions. They are typically useful.
        Big thing to remember with enameled pans is that the enamel can chip so take care when cleaning as that is typically when chipping happens. In my experience, price of the pan has nothing to do with it's changes of chipping. Others may have a different experience.

            I did the same - bought a black inside, green enamel outside frying pan, thinking it was cast iron inside when it is in fact enamelled. It is great for some things - anything with tomatoes, or a sauce which might harm the seasoning of a cast iron pan. But I do prefer my real cast - iron - seasoned - with - lard pan for most frying when I want it to be really non stick.

            The enamelled one doesn't need seasoning or anything like that - just don't use metal utensils n it!
