How to use on cookware:

Here's a video on how to use the Compound.

    Cast Iron Chris Seasoning Compound

    Posted by Meredith F. on 3rd Jul 2024

    I recently tried out the ‘Cast Iron Chris Seasoning Compound,’ and I’m thoroughly impressed! It’s less wasteful, less messy, and easier to store compared to traditional oils. The blend of dual high-temperature oils with the perfect ratio of beeswax makes it optimal for seasoning my cast iron cookware. Applying it is a breeze, thanks to its natural ingredients, and it has significantly improved the condition of my cast iron compared to other oils I’ve used. Whether for regular maintenance or restoring the seasoning, this product consistently delivers excellent results. Highly recommended for all cast iron enthusiasts!

    Picked up a tin of this after watching restoration videos by Chris. Looked at other brands online in Canada and wanted to avoid the exchange. Well I’m glad I decided to go with Chris’ compound! Very reasonably priced even with the exchange. Arrived quickly! I have 3 skillets, one very good one and a couple that have been through the wringer…used for camping and sat outside in rain and used over many fires. Cleaned up all 3 and put them through 3 rounds of seasoning! All in all about 4hrs. The results were amazing! Even my cheap beat up cast iron look incredible and are now my fav skillets to use! Followed Chris’ cleaning/drying instructions and now use the compound for maintenance! Night and day! Altho am still arguing with neighbours about soap on cast iron! Definitely recommend this product! Glad I found your IG!!! Will def be ordering again!!!! 5 stars!

    Seriously amazing stuff

    This compound has single handedly made using my cast iron so much easier! I went from avoiding using it for avoiding all the hassle of maintenance, to wanting to use it regularly. My already well seasoned pan is somehow even better with a coat of this stuff. I also used it to season a new carbon steel wok, and it was so much easier to work with than using oil.

    Seasoning and Maintenance Compound

    Posted by Todd on 5th Jun 2024

    Used this a few times this week and it's awesome. Works really well and smells good, too! You need less than you think. Definitely use a cotton towel or similar. You can get away with a paper towel using oil but not really with this. I think the beeswax bullies the paper towel into falling apart. Anyway I accidentally bought two and I'm glad I did. Thanks!

    I have very old cast iron pans. I wash them with soap and now treat them with the Maintenance and Seasoning Compound. They have never looked better and are so smooth. I love. My pans and look forward to having them for many more years. Thank you for this great product keeping them.for a long time.

    Can’t thank you enough.

    Chris I was looking for a way to leave a review maybe I didn’t google the right thing. With that said 5 stars. Both the video series and the compound. I have always had a love to cast iron growing up in South Louisiana. I had several pieces that belonged to my grandparents and several pieces I bought here and there for really cheap. All that to say these all went through hurricane Katrina and suffered some rust, luckily that was all. I had cleaned them and “re-seasoned” them by just heating them up on a seafood boiler. They have now all been restored to their former glory because of all of your great videos. Also some of us need a tub of your compound. lol.

    Best of the best

    I started my hobby of cast iron restoration last year and Cast Iron Chris' seasoning and maintenance compound is absolutely amazing. I've restored a lot of pieces and am on tin number four! Every piece has come out beautiful, no stickiness or spotting. Highly recommend! 10/10 ⭐

    Fantastic Seasoning Compound

    Posted by John on 16th Apr 2024

    I bought my first vintage piece of cast iron recently after following CIC Instagram for awhile. I was super eager to try this on it and it didn't disappoint at all. My new old pan is slick as teflon and looks fantastic!

    I follow Cast Iron Chris on IG and so bought this to help with me restore two absolutely DESTROYED cast irons- one was a Griswold handed down by my mom. I followed his 4 times in the oven at 450 and they came out beautifully! They're non-stick, i can use them for anything! LOVE IT. Suggest it to everyone who likes cast iron.
