    Made me love my retired cast iron pan again., October 8, 2015

    I hated my cast iron pan because food stuck to it and it took hulk strength to scrub off; seasoning with olive oil made a greasy mess; when I cooked anything with a strong odor, it stayed in the pan no matter how much I scrubbed and only stopped smelling if I used soap – the number one enemy of cast iron. I retired it to a closet, never to be used again. Then my friend raved and raved about her pan and showed me some pointers…so out came my pan.

    This seasoning made me love my pan again. When I took it out of the closet, it had a little rust on it. I scrubbed the rust off with a scouring sponge, washed really clean with soap, and coated the entire pan (top and bottom) lightly with this oil. I put this into my oven and baked it for 30 minutes. I pulled it out – good as new. I fried wontons in it – not one thing stuck. Next I tried an omlette and as surprised it came out better than on my nonstick – wow! Whereas the egg sometimes stuck to the side of my nonstick, this slid right off.

    The best part about this is the cleaning. I put my pan into the sink and scrub with a dish washing brush. I also bought a pan scrubber, a small hard plastic piece that removed any crusted food that didn’t come off with a light scrubbing. The scrubber removed crusted on food without any elbow grease. Then I put my pan on the stove, turn up the heat to low and wipe off all water with a paper towel before it got too hot. Once I knew it was completely dry from the towel and heat, I added just about 1/2 tsp. of this oil and coated the pan. I let the oil get hot until I could see a slight smoke rise it and then turn it off right away. Cleaning and oiling takes less than 5 minutes and best of all, no more food smells. Something about this oil removed all of that.

    If you or people you are cooking for are allegic to coconut, this has coconut.

    Very small bottle., November 4, 2015

    It works ok. I’m not knocking the product, but 120ml is a very, very small bottle. And to be honest I was using either coconut oil or flax oil from the grocery story, they both worked just as well and even flax oil is cheaper when you look at the size of the bottle your getting. I will not be buying this again!

    Nice Product – But Mineral Oil Works Just As Well and Is MUCH Cheaper, February 5, 2016

    This review is from: Caron & Doucet – Cast Iron Oil & Cast Iron Conditioner – 100% Plant Based From Refined Coconut Oil, Will Not Go Rancid or Sticky – Helps Maintain Seasoning on All Cast Iron Cookware.
    An OK product… I won’t buy again. Here are the reasons:

    1) I use to own a snack food manufacturing plant. One of the snacks I made was Fried Pork Rinds and the plant was inspected each day by a USDA inspector. Why? Because its a meat product and a USDA requirement. Fried pork rinds and all other meat products leave behind fats and protean on the processing equipment. So we may pass USDA inspection, all of our processing, frying, grilling, etc., equipment MUST be clean. So how do we clean it? With White Oil.. which is a mineral oil. Similar to Baby Oil but without the perfume and is food grade.

    2) In the 1970’s I managed hotels in Guam, Saipan, and the Big Island of Hawaii. All of these resort hotels have excellent restaurants. How did we keep the restaurant equipment clean? Mineral oil. Wipe mineral oil onto stainless steel and it will come clean and shine like new. A range or an oven for example. Spills and protean on steel tables, fried bits on top of the range or baked in the oven… all can be removed with mineral oil, a little Scotch Brite Scouring Pad and a bit of elbow grease.

    3) Most coconut oil comes from the Philippines. Second is Indonesia while the third largest producer is Malaysia. There are several ways to make coconut oil which in the Philippines and other places is even used for biodiesel fuel! Of course, food grade coconut oil is manufactured a little different. The methods are too long to detail here. Both in Hawaii, Guam and the Philippines (where I lived for a time) there is a simple, traditional method to make food grade coconut oil in one’s kitchen. It’s used in baked goods, confections, non dairy creamers, snack foods, small engine oil and even transformer oil. I’ve seen it used as brake fluid. All forms of coconut oil is a very useful product.

    4) I have the Weber Performer BBQ and the Weber Smoky Mountain smoker. This afternoon I smoked 2 racks of ribs in the Weber Performer and 3 racks in the Weber Smoky Mountain. I used this product (I purchased from Amazon a few days ago) on one half of the grill and the other half I used mineral oil. Both did an excellent job. I also used a scouring pad with both products. Each side came out gleaming. There was no difference. Oh there WAS a BIG difference… and that is in price! This product is 120ml (from Canada) and here in the USA that translates to 4.058 fluid oz. The bottle is small vs. price in other words.

    5) There is a lever below the spray trigger. Its an on/off lever. No matter which way I turned it, the fluid came out in a STREAM and not a SPRAY. Therefore, one must spray a scouring pad or a paper towel (whatever you’re using) and do not spray onto the grill. It will simply go through the grill. I didn’t like this feature at all as it creates expensive waste.

    6) If you are seasoning cast iron products… you can use Canola oil (spray) just as effectively and much cheaper! In fact, when you purchase a quality piece of cast iron (skillet or Dutch oven for example), the seasoning instructions will clearly tell you this.

    Last (but not least), I like to work on my Dodge RAM diesel truck. I use mineral oil to keep it clean. Similarly, on the diesel engine of my boat I use mineral oil also.

    Remember, you can clean your grills with Canola oil, Mineral oil, or this nice oil. But after you have wiped everything clean and heated it up… the heat will further clean everything and sterilize at the same time.

    Oh, and for you mechanics out there who have used Goop or a similar product as your hand cleaner… if you read the ingredient list you’ll find that it is mostly mineral oil and lanolin. Lanolin comes from the glands of wool bearing animals (mainly sheep) and is used as a skin cleaner and skin softener. Add in a little orange oil (citrus oil) and you’ve got a nice smelling, excellent hand cleaner.

    In conclusion, this is a good product but it is way overpriced. If it were much less expensive, I’d buy it again. I wish the seller good luck but I’ll stick with mineral oil.
