Before first use, it is recommended to season your cast iron cookware. Seasoning maximizes performance, prolongs product life, and prevents rusting.  The seasoning inside the pan will build up over time through cooking, promoting a smooth cooking surface and easy food release.   

To Season and Re-season:

  • Wash with warm soapy water. Towel dry immediately.

  • Place over low heat to ensure the cookware is thoroughly dry.

  • Once dry, turn off the heat and wait for the cookware to cool down.

  • Apply oil of your choice with a dishcloth or paper towel evenly.

  • Place cookware back on the stove over high heat.

  • Make sure to also heat the sides of the pan over the flame.

  • Once the oil is lightly smoking, turn off the heat and allow the pan to cool.

  • Wipe away excess oil with a paper towel.

  • If your pan starts to rust and/or food starts to stick to the surface at any time, please follow the directions above to re-season the surface of the pan.
