Seasoning cooking pans saves you time and money. We'll show you how to season five different types of cooking pans in this video. A cast iron skillet, a carbon steel fry pan, a carbon steel wok, a tin-plated pan, and a hard coat aluminum pan.

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.

    Lighter gauge than I expected. The holes look like they were drilled in someone's garage as the spacing is inconsistent.
    Thank you for your review, Alisa! We are sorry this American Metalcraft PCTP16 16 inch Perforated Standard Weight Aluminum Coupe Pizza Pan has not worked well for you. A Customer Solutions Representative will contact you soon!
    I actually ordered the wrong thing when I ordered this but I found other uses for it in our restaurant. It is a sturdy screen pan and can be used in the oven with ease. I was disappointed in how it shipped as it was put in a box that was not big enough and upon removing it from the box it was bent on two sides but we did manage to get it straightened out enough to use.
    I like this pan and it works well enough but the construction seems off. I don't like how the perforations were made. It seems like they were punched through without cleaning up the edges on the bottom side of the pan. Makes it feel cheap and not very nice to use. I'm probably not describing it very well but I don't know how else to explain it. I can't honestly recommended this product and I can't get it 5 stars.
