  • I think you are just supposed to wipe them down and not wash them because the water will rust them, you can place them in a very hot oven for 20 min after you wipe them real well, and rub a little oil on the inside to condition it, the heat helps to sanitize it, good luck...

  • What I was always taught, that worked very well on mine, was to season it: wipe it wil veggie oil inside and out, stick in in a 350* oven for about 2 hours. And to always wash it in just plain water, no soap.

  • I "season" mine with a bit of crisco on the inside and place in a low oven or on the gas burner on very low heat for an hour or two...makes a nice smooth seal on them. Water is the enemy of will get rust.
