Do you love cooking with cast iron, but hate cleaning them like I do? Well, here is a quick and easy way to clean them. Use a crumpled piece of newspaper! It's best to clean the pan while it's still hot/very warm. Scrape off the excess gunk with a metal spatula. If you need, add a little oil to the pan and wipe it out with the newspaper. Keep wiping and changing the newspaper til the newspaper no longer turns dark and nasty while wiping. This makes the process quick and easy. You and your cast iron pans will be so happy!
