Seasoning is just oil baked onto the pan. This layer of carbonized oil gives cast iron cookware a natural, easy-release finish. We use 100% vegetable oil to season our cast iron cookware right in the foundry so each item ships to you ready to use, right out of the box.
Simply clean and oil your cookware after every use. Rubbing oil into your pan after each use ensures the seasoning remains intact for quality cooking.

Place the cookware in the oven upside down on the top rack, place aluminum foil on the bottom to catch excess oil, and bake at 450-500 degrees F for one hour.
