How do You Season a Cast Iron Pan?

Nothing beats a well seasons cast iron skillet for creating many delicious recipes. Seasoning a skillet is relatively easy. First remove all packaging from your new skillet, then preheat your oven to 350 degrees or higher and prepare your skillet by wiping oil all around the inside the skillet. You then place your skillet, upside down, on the top rack of your oven. You don’t want the oil dripping onto your oven floor though, so place a cookie sheet on the bottom rack. Leave the pan in your oven for an hour. It’s ok to see or smell smoke as this is part of the seasoning process. After an hour or more, using oven mitts, remove your skillet and allow to cool. Now you’re ready to cook all those delicious recipes! For more detailed information visit
