How to cure a plow disc

If you got a gift or bought a plow disc and you don't see the hours of making a stew or a paella, patience: First you have to cure it!

Disco Arado

In Santa Fe you eat a lot of stew, rice with chicken and even meats cooked on plow disc. It is usually a less expensive alternative than roasts that, with the current  economy  , went through the clouds. Although paellas to the disk are also delicious. And that's a not very cheap dish we say.

As the name implies, the plow disk is an  agricultural  tool that is used to open grooves in the earth. Gauchesco ingenuity turned it into a huge iron pot.

It is important to note that this accessory needs to be cured before use. Yes. Like the mate. This is because it is necessary to preserve its material and prepare the surface so that food does not stick.

Ways to cure the plow disc there are many. Here we leave you a very  simple and effective one.


  1. Put the disc on the fire.  Without adding any liquid to it . After about 10 minutes you will see that it takes a brownish color. After another ten minutes turn off the heat and allow to cool.
  2. Place a little oil, enough to cover the surface.
  3. Place on fire again, about twenty minutes. It will take a darker color. Treatment ends when no more smoke comes out.
  4. Step two can be repeated, and thus achieve a more reinforced layer.
  5. After cooking, wash like any pot, but without scrubbing too much, because the curing can be removed.

 Two optional steps 

  1. If it seems to you that the disc is too dirty, then in point 2 you can add a little coarse salt. This helps to deepen cleaning
  2. .
  3. At the end, after washing, place on minimal fire, which removes  moisture .

Now you are ready to use this  great cooking instrument  . Lucite with a hot dish made in plow disc, to accompany with a nice wine.
