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.

Customer questions about this product

How can I properly care for cast iron surfaces?
In order to prevent unwanted build-up of oils, grease, and food, surfaces should be cleaned after use while still slightly warm. Harsh chemicals or scouring pads should not be used—only hot water and a cloth or sponge are needed. If some areas require extra cleaning, a mild scouring pad can be used. Please refer to our Pan Seasoning Guide for further information on properly cleaning and seasoning cast iron surfaces.
My new cast iron feels rough in some areas. Is this normal?
Yes. This is a result of the sand casting process. With use and replenishment of the seasoning, the pan will become smoother. Unlike other types of cookware, Lodge Cast Iron only gets better with use. For concerns about roughness, it is OK to use a fine grade of sandpaper to smooth out the rough areas. Make sure to re-season the item before using.
How is Lodge's pre-seasoned cookware seasoned?
All of Lodge's pre-seasoned cookware is seasoned with soy-based vegetable oil. No peanut oil or animal fat is used.
Does this cast iron pan weigh more than other similar sized pans?
Yes, this cast iron pan is heavier than other similar sized cast iron pans due to the additional material used to make the impressions.

    What can I say? It’s a cast-iron pan! And it’s a lodge. So you’d expect it to be good. I’ve always wanted one with the grill lines, and at Webstaurant store’s price, I couldn’t resist it.
    I was looking for a good solid cast iron pan with the grill grooves on the bottom for my kitchen and this fit the bill wonderfully. The ridges help my meats to come off more cleanly and provide those awesome grill marks without needing to fire up the outside grill. It's a good, solid piece and should last for many years with proper care and maintenance.
    Great brand and the price is right on this cast iron pan. When you don't want to fire up the grill you can still get grill lines on all your favorite foods with this.
    Very good try grilled chicken in first time, I will post some picture liter. The grill marks are perfect, no more grill on the fire.
    I love this Lodge cast iron grill pan that can keep the meats from absorbing excess oil and fats. It is nice to grill indoors on a rainy or cold day.
    A solid, durable pan that cooks well, and is easy to clean.i am so glad that i pick to buy this casr iron grill pan
    We all like the restaurant look of grill marks on your meats and vegetables. This grill pan is also great for rendering fat from your meats without leaving them to sit in a puddle of grease. Once your done, simply rinse it hot water and oil. If you have stuck-on food, toss in a tablespoon of salt and scrub with a paper towel. Then rinse, dry, oil, and store away.
