Hello, I'm Chef Peter Ryan from Cook Street School of Culinary Arts. Today, we're going to talk about seasoning pots and pans. Now, when talking about seasoning pots and pans, we are referring to treating the inside of your pots and pans with a thin coating of oil, thereby creating a nonstick surface. The materials need are obviously pots and pans and they are usually cast iron. We also need some cheap vegetable oil and a very hot oven that has been preheated to about 350 degrees. The steps to take are: first make sure your pots and pans are clean and free of debris. Once that is taken care of, you want to heat up your pot or pan, put a little oil in and heat up the oil until you see the surface starts to ripple a bit. Once that has been taken care of, you want to remove any excess oil, carefully wipe it out and take the pot or pan and put it in your preheated oven and leave it in there for about 45 minutes to an hour. After about 45 minutes to an hour you want to carefully remove your pot or pan, put it on a surface and allow it to cool for a little while. It could take about a half hour. Once it has cooled, you'll notice that the inside of the pot or pan is nice and shiny, thereby creating a nonstick surface.
