Pan seasoning is essential for keeping your pans performing their best in your kitchen. This instructional video will show you the proper steps to seasoning your cooking pans based on their material.

How to Season a Pan

How to Season a Pan

For a carbon steel pan, start by washing, rinsing, and drying the pan. Heat the pan on your range on medium to high heat, then add shortening to the pan. Use a clean dry towel to spread the shortening around the interior of the pan, creating an even coat. Remove the pan from the heat, wipe out the excess shortening and let it cool. You can repeat this process up to 3 more times. For a cast iron skillet, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking pan with aluminum foil and set aside. Wash, rinse, and dry your skillet. Place the skillet in the oven for 15 minutes. Remove and coat the entire skillet with shortening, inside and out. Place the skillet in the oven for 45 minutes with the baking pan on a rack below it to catch any mess. You can repeat this process up to three more times.

    Love these pans! Great quality and I know these pans will last me for a very long time. I bought two and I will be buying more. Get them!
    Well made cake pan. I like to use 3" high pans versus 2" high pans so cakes have more room to rise and level out. I strongly suggest not putting these in the dishwasher!
    These pans are incredibly heavy duty, and much better quality than other pans on the market. I love the added height compared to 2" pans, as I get more bang for my bake and things move along faster in the kitchen. I have 8 of these 6" pans in my small bakery and use them constantly with no loss of quality. The lipped edge helps make them easy to hold, and they clean up easily. The aluminum lends itself to an even bake, so you don't end up having to cut off your burnt outer edge like with other, higher-heat pans. Plus the price is incredibly affordable and can't be beat. Highly recommended for every kitchen, big or small!
    This pan does a great job. I needed an extra 6” pan and pans can be a little costly. I was sure how this pan would bake my cake. So I gave it a shot. Happy Customer!
    These baking pans are amazing. They are such great quality and so well made that it will last you a lifetime. They're very strong and very easy to clean. I love how deep they are too. Cakes come out perfectly in these, I have had no issues baking all types of cakes. I highly recommend these pans for baking cakes.
    Great cake pan for our allergy-friendly cakes. Cakes always come out perfectly and never stick in the pans. We have two so far but will definitely buy more when the time comes!
    Very durable and bakes even all around. The pans carry a little weight to them so that enhances the quality and the durablity of the pan.
    Wow! This is a wonderful pan. Bakes well, nice depth for 1 bake and slice layers. Saved lots of time with one. Highly recommended. Small Bundts, personal sized Bundts works well too and look rustic.
    This is a great pan by a great company. Good even baking. Sides are indeed straight! Last straight pans we bought had a slight curve. These are perfect. I wish they stacked but they are actually straight so it is worth the small hassle.
    I love these pans. I can make my smaller cakes taller with these pans and not have to worry about them overflowing in the oven.
    This cake pan provides excellently baked cakes. The depth allow for fewer pans this saving money. Even and precise baking provide a uniform and desirable cake.
    Perfect tall cake layers every time! Great price and the quality of the pan is amazing. I wondered if the quality would be comparable to other brands and it has been a great investment!
    American metalcraft cake pans are the best quality there is! Very sturdy, wont bend with time, I have my set for about 4 years now, and after a LOT of use they still look like new, I just got myself more of them, I wanted to have multiple pans of same size
    Thick, well made and great price. It is hard to find 6 inch width and 3 inch high cake pan in stock in our area. Thanks.
    These are great 3" tall pan!! Love that I can bake taller layer and reduce cake dome waste since I can torte the taller layer in to 2.
    This cake pan is really great. I was looking for 6 inch round cake pan and I found it here with great quality and price.!
    I am very pleased with the American Metalcraft 6" x 3" pans. I used them to create a three dimensional minion cake. I love the depth and I always have the option to only fill with enough batter for a 2" tall cake. I found the pans to be heavy weight and they appear to be very durable. This is important to me because I often travel with all of my cake making supplies, including my pans. These held up very well on their first trip to a 'create on location' cake job.
    Great quality pan, and the price cannot be beaten, I love these pans you can even use them without grease and just slide a knife around the rim when done.
    Great quality pan and at reasonable price. i have a few in my collection which means that i do not have any regrets with it's quality.
    One of my new favorite pans. The cake come out smooth and effortless, barely any sticking. I will definitely be purchasing the other sises that are available.
