How to Season Your Pans

How to Season Your Pans

Today we're going to show you how to season cooking pans. Pan seasoning is essential to any food service operation, as it keeps your pans from rusting and your food from sticking to the pans. 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.

Seasoning your pans enables you to cook great-tasting food with minimal oil, butter, or fat. It also provides a stick-resistant surface, allowing for easy clean up, and will keep your pans from rusting quickly. Check out this video to learn how to season cast iron and carbon steel pans.

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.

    great skillet iron pan cast grill pans quickly recommended seasoned
  • Arrange by 
    Had been looking for a square iron skillet without the griddle in the bottom for my mom for years, was so happy to see this so decently priced and with a lid!!! She loves it!!! Fast shipping and great quality.
    Very good item. This is a heavy skillet, please handle with care. Just need to season the pan every time after used. The handle is very hot, so be careful.
    Perfect cast iron skillet, the price is great and it is well made. Works great on our induction cooktop and we would definitely recommend it to friends.
    The pan is really sturdy and the pre-seasoning was suprisingly well done and so nothing really sticks to it. It has been great for making baked pasta dishes and pizzas.
    I bought this along with the Lodge LFIP3 8 1/4" pre-seasoned cast iron flat grill press in lieu of a countertop type grill for quick cooking of burgers, chicken breasts and the like. It works great! The flat grill press fits the pan wonderfully. Highly recommended!
    I have been using Lodge cast iron pans for decades. This has quickly become my favorite skillet for recipes that require a skillet with sides. It looks good and makes more efficient use of burner space than a round pan. I have also started baking my scones in it!
