    That looks nice. What kind of paint did you use? Also, what does it mean to season the inside? Why use sprouts and garlic?

    I used rustoleum metallic spray paint on the outside. Seasoning is just treating the surface with fats and oils to prevent sticking and protect the metal. I brushed the inside a bit with mineral oil before the running sprouts and garlic through. You could use spring onions or anything else you have laying around.
