Do you want to know how to clean a tortilla pan? Tortilla means "little cake" in Spanish; tortillas are light and tasty. You can use tortillas to make a variety of delicious dishes and desserts. The best way to make tortillas is with a tortilla pan. The cast iron pan ensures perfect tortillas every time. Once you finish cooking your tortillas, you need to clean the pan properly to keep the pan in great condition.
In order to clean a tortilla pan, you will need:
- Dish washing soap
- Vegetable oil
- If you want to maintain your tortilla pan, take care of it. A common complaint with cast iron pans is the food sticking. Cast iron is a natural non-stick surface. As long as the tortilla pan is properly seasoned, your tortillas will lift from the pan with ease. A seasoned pan is a cured pan. The seasoning process involves baking layers of oil on the pan creating a glassy surface.
- To clean the tortilla pan, make sure it is well seasoned (you will only have to do this when food starts to stick to the pan). Season the tortilla pan by rubbing a light coat of oil into the pan. Wipe the oil off using a cloth or paper towel. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on the oven rack. The foil will catch any oil drips. Stick the tortilla pan upside down in the oven heated to 500 degrees F. Bake for about an hour. Remove from the oven. Allow to cool. You will need to repeat the process several times.
- Cleaning a seasoned tortilla pan is simple. Since the tortillas do not stick, there is not much to clean. Simply wash the pan in warm soapy water. Rinse with clean water. Use the cloth to dry the tortilla pan. It is important to clean the tortilla pan after each use.
