Do You Need To Grease Cast Iron Before Baking?

Pre-heat your oven to 250F. Wash your cast iron cookware in hot water with soap and a stiff brush. Dry completely with paper towels then place in your oven for 20 minutes. Take out the cookware using heat-resistant gloves or a heating pad. Apply oil, bacon grease, or shortening with a paper towel to the cast iron to coat it entirely.

Some people swear on bacon grease or Crisco, others flaxseed oil, and others will use anything. Most likely, each answer is partially correct and will get you a pretty darn good foundation to cook on. What Does It Mean to Season Your Cast Iron Pan?

Apply a thin coat of any kind of vegetable oil to the entire pan (inside and outside and the handle too) Turn off oven and allow pan to cool inside the oven.

We recommend using a baking spray that contains flour to grease the pan before baking. If you don’t have a cooking spray, you can also use a tablespoon of room temperature butter to coat the pan. It’s not necessary to preheat the pan in the oven before adding the batter, but it won’t hurt either.
