How To Season The Skillet
What You Need
Sponge or stiff brush
Clean, dry cloths or paper towels
Vegetable oil or other oil of your choice
Get ready: Gather your supplies and then preheat oven to 350°F.
Wash The Skillet: Wash The Skillet with warm, soapy water and a sponge or stiff brush. Note that normally cast iron should not normally be washed with soap, but it’s fine here since The Skillet is about to be seasoned.
Rinse and dry: Rinse and thoroughly dry The Skillet with a clean, dry cloth or paper towels.
Add oil: Pour your oil onto The Skillet. A tablespoon or two is plenty. Vegetable oil and shortening are the most commonly recommended oils used for seasoning.
Rub: Use a clean cloth or paper towel to rub the coat around the entirety of The Skillet.
Flip The Skillet over: Don’t forget the outside — and bottom — of The Skillet. You want a thin coat of oil around the entire keyboard..
Bake The Skillet: Place The Skillet upside down on the oven’s center rack. Place a sheet of aluminum foil below the rack to catch any drips. Bake for an hour. Let The Skillet cool: Turn off the heat and allow The Skillet to cool completely before removing from the oven. Once it’s cooled down, you’re good to place down your PCB and brass plate
