This Guy’s Tweet About ‘Helping’ His Girlfriend Will Have Cooking Enthusiasts Screaming In Horror

No no no no no no no no nooooooo.

Somewhere, Twitter user @recan_t is lying dead in a grave.  Cause of death?

Being a dumb MAN!

This queen straight up loaded a cast iron skillet into the dishwasher.

If you wash a cast-iron skillet in the dishwasher, it will (among other things) lose its seasoning (aka the “grease” he is trying to get rid of), and also rust and change color.

You don’t want to do that.

Anybody who cooks five to nine times a week knows this about cast iron skillets.

We are guessing our friend here knows pretty much exactly zero.

And will be paying for it.

Not only is it annoying, it will actually destroy the pan you love.

The seasoning will never re-acclimate in exactly the same fashion.

You will be at the mercy of a brand new pan.


We wonder what Alex Guarnaschelli, chef from the hit show Chopped, would have to say about this.

Cut to her pulling her own hair out.

We hope Ben (@recan_t) is okay.

But mostly we hoped that he learned his lesson.
