As you know I cook with cast iron quite a bit – daily actually.  However, as much as I love my dutch oven and cast iron skillets, I HATE cleaning them.  So when I saw a program to review a chainmail scrubber designed to clean cast iron skillets without removing the seasoning I had to apply.

Don’t think that because this is a sponsored post that I won’t give an honest review.  A free $20.00 scrubber, no matter how cool, is not worth my integrity.

Luckily, this thing actually works pretty good, and I find that it actually is something I can use.  Being stainless steel I can use it scrub my pans and then toss it in the dishwasher (I did have to think for a minute how to lay it in my washer so that it would bother spread out to wash and not fall into the bottom of the machine).

I have not really used the scrapers, but they are a plastic that is very similar to those plastic “CIA letter openers” – AKA plastic knives.  They seem sturdy, and to be honest, I probably will throw the flatter one in the glove box of my truck to use as an icescraper.

What I think is really cool, is the silicon mitt for the handles of my skillet.  I can’t tell you how many times I have burned myself when the towel I was using bunched up and let me touch the hot handle.  The silicon looks much nicer, is removable, but still classes up my kitchen.

I feel that this product is worth the $20.00 it retails for, and if something ever happened to the one I have now, I will either buy another or use it as an excuse to learn to make chainmail (something I have wanted to do for a while, but always felt it to be too time consuming to be practical).
