How to season a cast iron pan

I remember vividly the day I offered to help a friend clean up after a dinner party and went to grab her cast iron pan. “No!” she cried out suddenly and grabbed the cookware from my hand. I was shocked and took a step back from her in confusion. That night, I learned how to clean cast iron pans and how to season them as well. I also learned how passionate a true chef (or just a food lover) can be when it comes to their cookware. I will say, after that evening, I bought my own cast iron skillet and have been dedicated to cleaning it and seasoning it correctly myself. I’ve also had my own panic attack when my roommate tried to scrub it with soap and water… As someone who’s already had her Shakshuka stick to the bottom too many times to count, there’s no way I’m letting anyone un-season my pan. To help you ensure you get the most out of your own incredible cast iron pan, here’s how to season your cast iron (and clean it).
