Dr Oz: Should You Wash A Cast Iron Pan?
Cast iron pans are all the rage, but they can be a bit confusing for those who don’t have a lot of experience with them. First, should you wash your cast iron pans? One woman shared that she uses soap and water to clean her pan after each time that she uses it. Another woman was told not to use soap, and just rinses it off after each use. Dr Oz swabbed her pan to see how many germs were on the pan. The reading came back with a zero! Dr Oz pointed out that when a cast iron hits 500 degrees, all the bacteria on it is killed, so you don’t need to use soap to clean it.
