Seasoning your Pan
We’ve done a lot of seasoning here at FeLion Studios and have found that to achieve the hardest, slickest and most even seasoning possible, you need to first choose the right oil for the job: Organic Flaxseed oil (polymerizes during seasoning).
Wash your pan with warm water and a wee bit of soap to start. Dry it thoroughly over a flame or in the oven at 200 degrees to make sure it’s bone dry. This also starts to help open up the pores of the iron in preparation for accepting a good seasoning.
Drizzle a little flaxseed oil into the dry pan and rub it everywhere on the pan; inside and out, don’t forget the handle too! After you get oil into all the nooks and cranny’s, wipe it ALL OFF with a new towel or cotton cloth until it looks dry again. The micro layer oil is all you need to start.
Put your pan upside down into the oven, turn the oven up to its highest baking temperature ( 450-500 degrees F), and allow the cold pan to preheat with the oven.
Set the timer for 1 hour and turn on your kitchen fan. After the first hour, let it cool without opening the door for 2 hours, and repeat the process a total of 6 times – yes, 6 TIMES ! This is the most ideal way to insure your pan will have the most even and hardest seasoning you’ve ever seen in an iron skillet!
