What reviewers liked

After washing it by hand with mild soap or none at all, you should dry it promptly and thoroughly with a lint-free cloth or paper towel and then, Rub with a very light layer of vegetable oil, preferably while the cookware is still warm.
Will rust after a few washes if not seasoned properly.
