What is the Heat-treated cast iron cookware? Lodge cast iron goes through a patented heat treating process which inhibits rust for worry free maintenance. the process includes application of nitrogen to the surface of the casting under extreme heat, which results in a surface that cannot react with oxygen, and since this prevents oxidation from occurring, it can’t rust! This is not a coating, but a process that changes the molecular make up of the iron’s surface to inhibit oxidation. Read below details for the Heat-treated process.

Heat-treated Process

  • The cast iron cookware is made in the traditional process at the Lodge Foundry.
  • Then, the cast iron is sent to our specialized furnace to go through the heat treating process.
  • The heat treating process diffuses nitrogen into the surface of the cast iron cookware.
  • The addition of nitrogen creates a change in the makeup of the iron’s surface which removes oxygen, therefore inhibiting oxidation (rust).
  • This is a permanent change in the structure of the cast iron and not a coating. There is no visual or textural difference between the traditional and heat-enhanced cast iron.
  • The heat-enhanced cookware then goes through the same seasoning process as our traditional cast iron.


The Heat-treated process makes the cast iron rust resistant, NOT rust proof.


  • The heat-enhanced line is made entirely in the USA just like our traditional cast iron.
  • othing about the cooking quality or use of the cast iron is changed by the heat treating. Only that it is rust resistant!
  • The Heat-treated it is just as long lasting as the traditional cookware.
  • t has been tested AT Lodge’s test facility. Such tests include: endurance tests in a commercial and residential dishwasher, and soak tests. These dishwasher tests are in addition to the traditional heat distribution and cooking tests conducted on traditional Lodge cast iron.
  • The heat-enhanced cast iron is safe for use in a commercial dishwasher (cycle time 5 minutes or less).
  • In fact, our test pieces survived over 400 consecutive cycles in a commercial dishwasher without significant rust.
  • Use in a residential dishwasher will not cause significant rust but will remove seasoning due to length of cycle.
  • Since the heat treatment is not a coating but a change in molecular structure, there is no danger of chemical leaching, etc. All elements present in the heat-enhanced cookware are safe.
  • With proper use and care, the heat treatment will be permanent.
  • We advise the same use and care as traditional cast iron, including regular seasoning with vegetable oil to preserve the finish.
  • Just because it is rust resistant, does not mean the seasoning will stay on without proper care. In order to get a nice non-stick surface regular care and seasoning must be applied to the heat-enhanced cast iron, just like traditional cast iron.
  • A very small amount of rust can occur in the cookware due to inclusions, as they are harder to heat treat. Should any rust occur, simply wipe with oil to fix.

This cast iron kitchenware, belongs in the category of Seasoned cast iron kitchenware. What does this mean?

In the past all cast iron kitchenware came out of the production without any covering. That, had as a disadvantage, a quick generation of rust upon the cast iron surface. Last decades most of the foundries (except Lodge) implement the following procedure: After the molding of cast iron, kitchenware enter to a line of production where robots spray the kitchenware with enamel. This spray can be of little quantity, so a thin layer of enamel is formed, just to prevent cast iron from rusting. The spray can be of much quantity, usually with color, so the enamel cast iron kitchenware are formed. In first occasion the thin layer isn't visible to the eye or perceptible to the touch, except of course from the adepts! These kind of kitchenware are these that we import especially from Europe and italian factories.

Lodge does not implement this procedure.

In the past, especially in the USA where there is a long tradition with cooking in cast iron, when someone purchased a cast iron kitchenware, without any layer, had to apply a thin layer of melted solid vegetable shortening or cooking oil of his choice, and bake it. In this way, in the surface of cast iron, a thin oil layer is formed and makes the cast iron skillet or oven or griddle, invulnerable to rust and at the same time nonstick in a natural way. This procedure is called seasoning and the reformation of this layer reseasoning.

From now on, The Lodge factory implements this procedure to all of its cast iron cookware (except from the enamel one's). As a result the products does not need any further elaboration. The consumer can use it without fear. Unpack and Use! This factory is the one and only that follows this procedure as so to produce the cookware. They sprinkle the cast iron surface with edible vegetable oil and then bake it in high temperature. This procedure creates a natural nonstick layer. Our cookware does not rust and does not stick. We avoid in this way the use of teflon. The most important is that with every use this layer becomes stronger and stronger. However, after a period of intense use the layer might goes off. Then you can easily restore it having in mind the following instructions.

You can watch all the details above, in the videos at the end of this page.

On account of all the above, the Pre-Seasoned cast iron kitchenware of Lodge, have a life-time guarantee.



Some Basics

  • Ready for use. Hand wash. Dry immediately—even before first use.
  • Lodge Cast Iron is right at home on induction, ceramic, electric and gas cooktops, in your oven (any kind), on the grill, or even over the campfire. Do not use in the microwave.
  • On glass or ceramic cooktops, lift cookware; never slide it.
  • Our cookware is safe at high temperatures; use metal, wood, or hi-temp silicone utensils.
  • Some foods may stick to new cookware (especially eggs). Use a little extra oil or butter until you’ve built up the seasoning.
  • Acidic foods like tomatoes, beans, and certain sauces can damage seasoning, and should be avoided until the seasoning is well-established.
  • Cast Iron rarely needs to go above a medium heat setting when properly pre-heated. For the times when you do cook at higher temperatures, add oil to cookware just before adding food to prevent sticking.
  • Our handles get hot; use mitts. Use trivets to protect countertops from hot cookware.
  • Gas flames should not extend up the sides of cookware.
  • Match pan size to burner size.
  • Don’t use in the microwave.
  • When deep frying, fill cookware only to 1/3 of capacity.




Wash of your cast iron kitchenware.

  1. Let it cold.
  2. Hand wash. Dry immediately.
  3. Rub with a light coat of vegetable oil after every wash.
  4. How much oil? Enough to restore the sheen, without being “sticky”.
  5. If no soap is too scary, wash with mild soapy water and dry and oil immediately. However, consider that cookware is 400ºF in 4 minutes on medium heat and is sterile at 212º F, so soap isn’t always necessary!
  6. Dishwashers, strong detergents and metal scouring pads are not recommended, as they remove seasoning.




Rust?! Don't Panic, it's not Broken

Without protective seasoning iron can rust. It’s really easy to fix. Scour the rust, rinse, dry, and rub with a little vegetable oil. If problem persists, you will need to thoroughly remove all rust and follow our re-seasoning instructions (below).

  1. While maintaining the seasoning should keep your Cast Iron and Carbon Steel in good condition, at some point you may need to re-season your cookware. If food sticks to the surface, or you notice a dull, gray color, repeat the seasoning process:
  2. Wash the cookware with hot, soapy water and a stiff brush. (It is okay to use soap this time because you are preparing to re-season the cookware).
  3. Rinse and dry completely.
  4. Apply a very thin, even coating of MELTED solid vegetable shortening (or cooking oil of your choice) to the cookware inside and out. Too much oil will result in a sticky finish..
  5. Place aluminum foil on the bottom rack of the oven (not directly on bottom) to catch any drips.
  6. Set oven temperature to 350 – 400 degrees F.
  7. Place cookware upside down on the top rack of the oven to prevent pooling.
  8. Bake the cookware for at least one hour. After the hour, turn the oven off and let the cookware cool in the oven.
  9. Store the cookware uncovered, in a dry place when cooled.
  10. Repeat as necessary.
