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.

    Nice pizza pan with a cute design, made of good quality. I like my pizza crust softer rather than harder, and when I use this pizza pan, the crust comes out super crisp.(and I have one of those If you like crispy pizza, this pan is the one for you. It does cook evenly, and the outer-rim of the pan is curved up a bit so the pizza won't slide off.
    This is a nicely made pan not as deep as I wanted but works fine for what I needed. I use it for pizza and for large chocolate chip cookies.
