Seasoning Cast Iron

What you need:

  • Vegetable Oil, Canola Oil or Shortening
  • Foil
  • Oven

How to:

  1. Seasoning is oil baked onto the cast iron that prevents rust and provides a natural, easy-release finish that continues to improve with use.
  2. It is very iportant to maintain the seasoning of your cast iron and seasoned stseel cookware by applying a very thin layer of oil after each cleaning.
  3. If the seasoning on your pan is sticky, this is a sign of excess oil building up and not fully converted to seasoning.
  4. TO REMEDY: Place the cookware in the oven, upside down on the top rack on top of a piece of foil. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour.
