Seems like my pot is taking longer to dry, is there a way to dry it faster?
Most times it’s enough to wipe the pot with a cotton cloth after washing. But sometimes, if the pot didn’t get used back to back a few times after the 1st seasoning it may not have had a chance to shrink and so it may hold moisture for a little longer. Or if you’re living in cold or very humid areas it sometimes might take a little longer to dry. In these cases you can help the pot dry faster by wiping with a cotton cloth after washing and dry it on the stove-top on lowest setting for 10 minutes or in the oven at 250 D F for 10 -15 minutes. This just needs to be done a few times and you will see the pot drying faster after a few times of doing it this way.
