Intro: DIY: Outdoor Cooking: How to Re-Season Your Iron Cookware. Video Tutorial at the End of This Instructable!
I acquired these two Iron Skillets for our camping cookware at a yard sale for $1 each. What a great find! However they do need re-seasoning.
Step 1: Scour You Cookware
The first step in re-seasoning your Iron Cookware is to clean all the debris as much as you can. Use a brillo pad or a scouring pad and scour the pan completely, inside, outside and don't forget the handle. Rinse thoroughly.
Step 2: Dry Thoroughly
Dry your skillet completely and thoroughly.
Step 3: Grease Pan With Oil
Next you put a small amount of vegetable oil or solid oil into your pan and spread it around evenly and sparsely with a paper towel front, back and don't forget the handle.
Step 4: Bake
Next you want to put a sheet of aluminium foil on the bottom rack of your oven and place the pan on the top rack of a your oven at 375 degrees. Bake the pan for 1 hour then turn off the oven and allow the pan to cool completely in the oven as it cools down.
Always put your pan in the oven upside down, otherwise the oil might "pool" in the bottom of the skillet and leave a big sticky spot in the pan. The aluminum foil is put on the bottom rack to catch any oil that may come off the pan.
Step 5: Here's the Difference
Here is the difference of the two pans. What a difference!
