Blasphemy, he needs an exorcism to drive out the devil that compelled him to commit this heinous act against your cooking implement.

16, a lot of guys do. I almost always do the dishes and clean our cats' litter box and I don't expect anything for doing it, it's just something that, if done every couple of days, isn't that much hassle and doesn't take much time. My wife tells me that she appreciates it occasionally, but I certainly don't expect anything.

If you clean the pans right away after using them, there wouldn't be a reason to let them soak. Just a thought.

That's not true doing the dishes is the responsibility of the person who owns the plates it's nice to help out but it's not required

#12 cast iron skillets should never soak in water and you can't use soap to clean it or it could ruin it.

Why in the world would it be the responsibility of the person that owns the dishes??? If you are out of them, then that person was nice enough to let you use them. With that kind of attitude you won't be eating off of their dishes much longer lol

Yo #110, if you don't think it has anything to do with gender roles it's because you're blind to it. If there were no gender roles involved then no one would be suggesting that anyone get any particular credit for doing chores because doing one's half of the chores would be the default position- no one gets any particular credit for doing the default action. But since it's unusual for men to do chores, someone always suggests congratulating them for it whereas if a woman does chores no one notic

NO! First, dishes in soapy water are not done. I know this because my wife told me. Second, cast iron does NOT sit in soap. my wife now knows this because I told her.

It's okay.. Learn to forgive I guess.. Moving in can be a fun thing but you guys should learn to cope with each other. Not saying it's okay for him not to know though.. Hope you work things out :)

unforgiveable? really? you need to get your priorities in order if not knowing anything about ADVANCED cooking methods is "unforgiveable"

Not really advanved...my cast iron was my great grandmother's, it's at least 60 years old. And I was taught very early to NEVER EVER use soap to clean it.

Reply

that's all well and good for you. however i was never taught that. i did the same thing now i know not to. on top of that because of my mistake i learned how to season one myself. your coming ups are not the same as someone else's assuming so is very closed minded. besides that's something that isn't common sense nor not everyone knows what the heck a seasoned cast iron skillet is. it is now my favorite thing to cook in though.

Pfft I knew that. Lol I guess it's just not the first thing on my mind. I'm sure many mistakes have been made by numerous people due to that.

It's not the water, it's the soap. The pan was seasoned, and the soap washed away years of oil and cooking. Word to the wise: NEVER use soap on a cast iron skillet.

It's perfectly clean to use cast iron pots and pans. Seasoning is when oil polymerises onto the cookware, like a plastic, which gives it a non-stick coating, it's not just greasy. It's hygenic because you can use boiling water and salt to soften and scrub stuck-on food, and it's sterilised when heated to 100°C.

#68, you are absolutely right of course! It's a "false friends" language problem. In my native language, it's called "Emaille".

Reply

@71, its also called a "false cognate" in English, with a cognate being a word that is the similar or same, in both languages.

If you clean cast iron with soap it also makes everything cooked in that dish for a while afterwards taste soapy.

Reply

I wouldn't even think about that. My parents never have used any iron pans and I don't even know what a skillet is (don't think we use them in England or we don't call them that). Everything my family uses doesn't rust. (I'm 18 and live at home whilst at university, not the biggest domestic goddess)

Reply

The thing that's wrong with that is you CAN'T wash it with soap and water. It ruins the iron and makes it unusable. The way to wash it is with cold water and a LITTLE bit of salt.

Reply

A skillet is a a heavy frying pan, generally cast iron, and available in various sizes. They'really generally better than a standard frying pan for most things, and also handy for use against burglars.

Reply

the reason it'd wrong is cause if you have a well seasoned cast iron skillet/pan the soapy water can mess up the flavors when you cook with it I found out the hard way

Reply

The reason is because when using a cast iron pan you only want to rinse it out with water because the metal traps oils and flavors therefore making it non stick and giving food great flavor

I'm thinking it's safe to assume that NO one gets this reference, but I think it's funny as HELL hahaha for those that Mau have missed it, it from the animated movie "Tangled"

yeah, 142. no one understood it...except the people who commented before you, those who thumbed the comment up or down and the many, many people who saw the movie and immediately recognized the name...

Cast iron dishes can be a pain in the ass for that reason, one silly mistake and years of seasoning and perfecting is gone. All you can do is tell him not to again because it's not like he did it on purpose.

Reply

Boiling water, salt, oil. That's the main thing. It's worth pointing out that cookware is sterile at 100°C.

A perfectly seasoned CI skillet should never see soap. Oh well, if he managed to kill it, you have a good reason to re-season it, and involve him in the process.

I'm not exactly a master chef, so I had to turn to Google to figure what your boyfriend did wrong. That sucks, but I know I might've done the same thing...if I could be bothered to wash any dishes by hand!
