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.

Why does this pan have unfinished edges?

How is diameter classified for this pan?
The diameter given is the diameter a food product, such as a pie or pizza, would be if baked in the pan. The pan itself is a bit wider due to the thickness of the metal on all sides.

American Metalcraft HC3CA12 Details

Take your pizza preparation to the next level with this American Metalcraft HC3CA12 12" hard coat anodized aluminum mega perforated cutter pizza pan! This pizza pan is crafted without a rolled edge so that sheeted dough can be placed over the pan and cut off with a rolling pin or pie roller for fast, consistent results! Add your toppings, then bake. The 3/32" mega perforations allow the bottom of the pizza to cook fast while providing a mouth-watering, golden crust. This perforated bottom also allows finished pizzas to stay fresh longer by allowing moisture to escape.

Hard coat anodized pans, like this one, undergo a special electro-chemical process that converts the surface of aluminum into aluminum oxide. That said, thanks to its hard coat finish and dark coloring, this durable pan heats up quickly and gets hotter than typical pans to promote rapid baking. Unlike regular aluminum pans, anodized aluminum pans feature a non-reactive design which is great for making pizzas, as the pan will not react to the acidic sauce. It's also important to note that it's not non-stick and must be seasoned. However, with proper seasoning between uses, these pans may take on non-stick properties over time.

Use this pizza pan at your restaurant, pizzeria, or intimate cafe. It's great for perfecting your classic cheese or margherita pizzas. Whenever a crispy crust is desired, this is the pan to turn to! The perforations prevent soggy crusts ensuring ample product life from oven to table and beyond.
