How to season an iron skillet

This is a tip that all good cooks need to know. Every cook must have an iron skillet or two at least. I try to do this every six months or so to keep them in tip top shape.

Things You’ll Need:
Steel Wool
Vegetable Oils
Mild Soap
Paper Towels

Step 1:
Scrub a new skillet with steel wool to remove its protective coating, and wash with mild, soapy water. (If reseasoning an old skillet, just scrub with hot water and a brush.)

Step 2:
Use a paper towel to coat the skillet with vegetable oil.

Step 3:
Heat, uncovered, for 2 hours in an oven at 250 degrees F.

Step 4:
Let cool before use.
