How to Season a Cast Iron Pan - Readers Tips
And, another answer to last week's newsletter Readers' Q&A on how to season cast iron pans and skillets:
This is the seasoning method right from a catalog that sells Lodge cast iron cookware.
Hand wash with little or no detergent, then dry thoroughly. Use a plastic scraper if needed, never a metal scouring pad. Lightly coat the inside and outside with vegetable shortening such as Crisco. Make sure to get all the corners. Do not use butter, margarine or liquid vegetable oil. Place upside down on middle rack in oven with a cookie sheet or foil pan on the bottom to catch drips. Turn oven to heat at 350 degrees. After one hour turn the oven off and let the pan cool inside the oven. Remove from oven and wipe off any excess shortening.
Hope this helps someone out. Pat in Michigan
