Nest Homeware designs their cast iron cookware to be beautiful, smooth-surfaced, highly functional, and well-balanced. They are committed to quality and American manufacturing. Nest Homeware cookware is cast and machined in Pennsylvania, and seasoned by hand in Providence, RI. The double seasoning of organic flaxseed oil gives it a lustrous bronzy hue, and a solid protection base against rust. The seasoning will darken over time with use and care.
The cast iron process is sustainable and green. There is very little waste in the production of cast iron. There are only three essential elements used in the cast iron process: heat, sand, and iron. The sand and iron are recyclable, and the heat from the newest furnaces is generated through induction, which is wonderfully efficient. This means there is less negative environmental impact on the planet.
A good cleaning and seasoning routine will keep your cast iron cookware performing its best. There are just 3 simple steps.
Wash - Gently scrape off any food bits and wipe out any excess oil, then rinse under warm water.
Dry - After washing, make sure to dry your lid completely with a towel. Don't air dry.
Oil - Immediately after your lid is dry, and while it is still warm, add a few drops of oil and use a paper towel to coat the entire interior lightly. Work it evenly, wipe off any excess, and let it cool before storing. This thin coat of oil protects your lid from rust and adds to its seasoning.
