CROFTON Cast Iron Grill Pan


  • The cast iron construction provides this product durability and a wide range of uses for both preparing and cooking.
  • Before using your new cast iron cookware, wash it in warm water with mild liquid soap. The cookware should be rinsed and dried immediately. Do not air dry or store wet.
  • Your cast iron cookware is safe for use in the oven or on a gas, electric, ceramic or induction stovetop. Although it is safe for this cookware to be used on these stovetops, it is strongly suggested that you refer to your appliance manual to ensure the stovetop is compatible with enameled cast iron cookware prior to use. Also, be sure to always lift the cast iron cookware when moving to avoid scratching your stovetop and damaging your cookware.
  • Note that the cast handles on the cookware will become hot during stovetop or oven use. Oven mitts or hot pads should be used when moving. Rising steam can cause burns as well, use caution.
  • Always use plastic, wood or silicone utensils when stirring. Metal utensils will scratch the surface.
  • Do not use mixers or hand-held blenders in any cookware as this may cause permanent damage to the surface.
  • Do not cut food directly on the enamel surface of the cookware.
  • Never use your cast iron cookware in the microwave, on outdoor grills or campfires.
  • Tighten the knob carefully if it becomes loose.
  • Oven safe up to 400 °F (204 °C).
  • When placing the hot cookware on a table or countertop, use a trivet to protect the surface from heat damage.


  • None of the enameled surfaces require seasoning before use.
  • Place the cookware on a stovetop burner no larger than the bottom of the pan.
  • For best results, you should apply your choice of liquid vegetable oil or butter to the inside base before you begin heating. Do not overheat the cookware, with or without oil, prior to cooking.
  • Low to medium heat settings will provide the best results for most cooking, including frying or searing. Always allow the pan to heat gradually as this will ensure the most even and efficient cooking results.
  • High heat settings should only be used for boiling water for pasta, vegetables, or reducing sauces. Do not use high heat to pre-heat a pan as this may cause the pan to become overheated. This could cause poor cooking result such as sticking or discoloration of the cooking surface.


  • Always allow a hot pan to cool before washing. Use a sponge or soft cloth to remove any residual food, then wash in warm, soapy water. If there is residual food in the pan, fill it with water and allow it to sit for 15–20 minutes before washing. Soft brushes, nylon pads or soft abrasive pads may be used to remove stubborn residual food. If staining persists after following this process, repeat the soaking process with ¼ cup of vinegar and 1 cup of water. You may also simmer this mixture on your stovetop at low to medium heat for an additional 15–20 minutes.
  • Never use steel wool, steel abrasive pads or abrasive cleaners as these will damage the porcelain enamel finish.
  • Always dry your cookware completely after washing.
  • Never wash your cookware in the dishwasher.
  • Avoid dropping or hitting your cookware against a hard surface as the porcelain enamel coating may chip or crack.
