Space-saving Solution|How to Store Cast-Iron Pans

Aug. 23, 2023

If you are a cooking enthusiast, you must have a lot of cooking utensils. However, the layout of the general kitchen is relatively narrow, and there are many things that need to be stored, such as bottles and cans, pots and pans, etc. Good storage will make the kitchen look clean and bright, and also increase the fun of cooking to a certain extent. 

Cookware often comes in all types, shapes, and sizes, which means organizing pots and pans can be tricky. They're big and bulky, but because they're used so much, they need to be front and center when it comes to organizing your kitchen. By keeping your cookware organized, you can effectively organize your kitchen and keep it within reach and easy to use.

For those with limited kitchen storage space, utilizing the oven as a storage area for pots and pans is especially beneficial in small kitchens or apartments where every square inch of storage counts. You can free up valuable storage space for other kitchen essentials like small appliances, bakeware, or food containers. While this type of storage is convenient, storing pots and pans in the oven presents major safety concerns. The main risk is that the oven may start accidentally. If you forget to remove the cooker before preheating or turning on the stove, you may damage the cooker. It can also pose a safety hazard, especially if flammable items are stored with pots and pans.

Cabinets and drawers often get crowded if you just throw cookware in a cupboard or drawer, making it hard to find enough room for your cookware collection. The next time you open the door, you'll see an abundance of cookware.

Another way is to hang your pots and pans! Hang a kitchen rail or two on any empty wall space and use hooks to hang large pots and pans. Not only does it solve the storage problem, but it also looks chic when displayed, the problem is that it needs to be strong enough to prevent the risk of sudden drops.

Here are some tips for storing cast iron pans

1. Store cast iron pans in a dry place. Keep pans away from sinks or stoves as they may get splashed or steamed. Make sure the storage cabinet or shelf is well-ventilated to prevent moisture buildup.

2. Keep the pan within easy reach. Cast iron is a heavy-duty material that is strong and durable, but not foolproof. Handle your pans with care and avoid dropping or knocking them excessively.

3. Take care of your cast iron skillet. In addition to storing it properly, it's also important to take good care of your cookware. Dry it in time after use, and maintain it with vegetable oil regularly, it will be as bright as new and passed on from generation to generation.
