Cast Iron

My cast iron skillet burned last night & now half of the black is gone. How do I get the black back?

I've been having some problems with the cast iron skillets lately. When I cook with water in them, the water turns black. I do know how to clean them properly and do every time. I noticed that the pan that got burned is rusty where there is no black coating. Most of the coating got burned off the bottom and the rest is flaky. How do I restore my pan to it's former beauty?

re "season" it. simply wipe with a paper towel dipped in veg. oil. much like greasing a baking pan. then heat (until it smokes) and allow to cool. repeat if you want. eventually it will re season. also the oil will prevent the rust. just using the pan to cook will cause it to re season the best. just put a little oil on it each time you use it.
btw cast iron pans do not have a "coating" on them (ie teflon etc) this is seasoning or just plain old used residue. you should not "scrub" a cast iron pan with steel wool or cleanser or any other harsh abrasive. if you have a very stubborn "stain" (like say some burned on food) just use easy off oven cleaner on it. do not scrub the heck out of it.

The beauty of a traditional cast iron fireplace.   by Clement Divin

The cast iron fireplace, born of many identities and different designs, was a period feature embraced throughout the last 200 years or so in many homes and buildings across the UK. More commonly found in middle and upper class abodes, these stone, tiled or sometimes marble hearth and cast iron surround examples were a innovative and more cost effective move up from stone and granite fireplaces as the industrial revolution took place. Even those homes belonging to the working class still to this day show evidence that cast iron fireplaces existed, far be it on much less opulent and bespoke style.

Having the ability to cast metals, in this instance, iron ore, into a strong and long lasting fireplace, meant that many could be mass produced to offer accost effective and viable solution for all homes in Britain. However, when the introduction of gas became popular in the middle of the 20th century, there was a huge drive to replace antiquated fireplaces for the new, cleaner fuel choice which was designated to lower smog and pollution levels that engulfed the towns and cities of many countries. With many being dismantled and replaced with new surrounds and both gas and electric fires, cast iron fireplaces began to disappear, often being scrapped or recycled but over the last few decades a massive revival has pushed the demand for these terrific items through the roof, offering a classic and beautiful, decorative look for many new and old homes across much of the UK.

In a world where the cast iron fireplace is once more popular, there are a number of reclamation specialists and professional companies who offer a wide choice of fireplaces in varying degrees of restoration, with many new fireplaces cast using traditional methods that copy the older foundry techniques used before. Producing excellent replicas of many styles from much loved periods such as Victorian and Edwardian times, the whole persona surrounding the excellent craftsmanship works wonderfully with the latest moulding and casting advancements easily incorporated to give exceptional results.

Offering flair and a creative visual focal point for any room in the home with a chimney breast, the cast iron fireplace is in doubt a terrific addition to any home and as there are more interested in purchasing these stunning and superb creations, there are so many companies now offering excellent opportunities for thousands of hopeful homeowners. Traditionally in black or a gunmetal grey, many have chosen to adopt different techniques to suit their tastes and requirements, often decorating and painting their fireplaces to add a personal aspect to them.

Whatever the case may be there is still a great deal of interest in the many cast iron examples now found throughout the internet on reclamation sites and shopping sites across a wide area. With an ever increasing assortment of replica fireplaces now being produced it looks set to be a continually improving trend for others to take full advantage of to make their homes terrifically bespoke and highly personalised. Discover the magic of a real fire in your home today and sit back and relax knowing that as winter draws in you will feel wonderfully warm and cosy with a spectacularly stunning and appealing cast iron fireplace.

You can discover great deals from a wide selection of stockists and suppliers online and in the high street although there are many more to be found by using the internet as a means of locating perfect cast iron fireplace examples for your property today. Look around and you will probably find great examples for less than you thought too. Good luck in your search!
