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

    Seasoning and Maintenance Compound

    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.

    I’m on my second tin and I recommend it to everyone. I’ve been using it on my cast iron and my carbon steel, works great on both.

    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.

    Seasoning & Maintenance Compound

    LOVE IT!! I bought the first to try over a year ago, since I couldn’t seem to get the amount of oil correct. It’s awesome!! This is the second of many more purchases.

    Slicker than slick!

    I stumbled across Chris’s page on Instagram, and gave him a follow. Hands down a great choice. I have been cooking with Cast Iron for years and always had issues with slight sticking or full blown meals stuck. I gave his compound a try and followed his tips on his page(insta/Y.T.) and no more sticking food or messed up pans! I cook professionally as well, and now use his compound on my Carbon Steel pans and it works wonders on them. Thanks Chris you’re compound is in my kitchen constantly!

    Seasoning and maintenance compound

    Posted by Jonathan Brzys on 25th Feb 2024

    I purchased this compound a few months ago and waited to give it a proper chance before I wrote this review. I do not have a name brand cast iron. There is actually no name on it and I’m not sure who manufactured it because I purchased it from a resale shop. I have had this CI pan for several years but rarely used it because everything stuck to it. After using various oils to keep it seasoned after use and having a slight build up happen, I then found Cast Iron Chris’s instagram. I saw his compound and purchased it. After cooking a few meals in the CI and using the compound after to keep it seasoned I noticed an immediate improvement to the CI. After seeing this improvement I decided to run it through 3 rounds of seasoning according to Chris’s recommendation. This morning was the final test when I cooked scrambled eggs for my family. I WAS BLOWN AWAY by how nonstick the CI pan was. Zero of the eggs stuck to the pan and clean up effortless. I highly recommend this product to anyone with any type of cast iron pans from name brand to ones that are mass produced overseas.
