We have the raw cast iron pan. That's the one that forever cannot be washed :faint:

I am curious about the NTUC redemption ones. Where do you read the do's and don't? Are they similar to Le Creuset? I have a Le Creuset but don't know how to use it.


I was at the Coronation Plaza outlet this afternoon. There is a display stand tge with the pans.

Curious about your raw cast iron pan? How to clean after cooking? We used to hv the old fashion traditional cast iron wok, I would clean with diluted soapy water. The surface will still feel bit 油油的. Never rust ah.

To wash, just use normal liquid dishwashing detergent and the sponge pad. If there's stuff stuck to the bottom, just fill the pot with WATER and boil for a few minutes. This will help "lift" the burnt stuff off the pot.

Have been using my LC (oval 29cm) for 2 or 3 years and loving it. Just nice for my family of 4. Can cook enough for 6-8 pax.

The other cookware that I have are the glass Vision pots. Am eyeing the Fairprice 24cm cast iron casserole.

on LC, I mean to ask what do you cook with it?

Do you think the NTUC one is similar to a LC?

My DH insisted no washing :sad: Think he told the maids to wipe with kitchen paper towels only. Think I need to go research a bit on internet.
I feel very uncomfortable that it is sitting inside the cabinet unwashed...

Mostly ang moh type foods since I enjoy watching cooking shows (Barefoot Contessa, Donna Hays, Nigella Lawson, Jamie Oliver, Rachel Khoo). Their recipes are useful for time staved moms like me. These chefs often use dutch ovens in their cooking shows which got me interested in the LC pots. So far only own one.

For the LC, mostly cook stews and soups:

Curry chicken
Babi ponteh
Borscht soup
Beef stew
Chicken stew or soup
Coq au vin
Ox tail stew

I like that can cook over stove and then transfer the pot into the oven if the recipe calls for it.

For the cast iron casserole range, would think that it's similar.
