How To Re-Season Your Baking Steel (Video)

If you've wondered about seasoning your steel, here's the short of it.

Basically, you won't really have to season your steel. It comes from us already seasoned. And that stuff is pretty hearty. But there may be a few reasons why you would want to re-season it. And we've been asked about this quite a few times. So, here's what you need to know.

I’ve had a lot of people ask my about seasoning the steel. When do I season it? Do I need to?

My personal steel I’ve had for 10 months and I have not re-seasoned it. There’s no real reason to. Unless we’ve got maybe some rust spots because it got wet and didn’t get dried. Or maybe tomatoes got on there and soaked through the seasoning.

So I’m going to take you through the process of re-seasoning the steel today. It’s very simple.

Basically, you want to crank your oven up to 400 or maybe 500 degrees. I like to use flaxseed oil and paper towels.

That’s all you’re going to need for tools here.

What I do first is make sure my steel is clean. We’ve cleaned this with a cleaning brick. It’s got no soot on it at all, whatsoever.

Make sure the steel is dry. That’s very important.

Take a little oil. And make a little circle on it. I’m going to wipe it in to the steel. Almost like painting it. Cover the entire area, the entire steel. Get the sides in there.

That’s all on there.

Now what I’m going to do is take a paper towel and wipe it off. Take all that oil off there.

Really, really use a lot of elbow grease to get this thing out. And you can see it almost looks like there’s very little oil on there.

And that’s how we want to bake it.

This is done. Now I’ll do the other side the same way. Again.

This steel in particular didn’t really need any oil on it. But I’m going to show you how to do it anyway.

Oil. Paper towel. Paint it on there nicely. Some elbow grease. Take another paper towel and wipe it off and make sure you get the whole area covered.

I’m going to take this steel and put it in the oven for about an hour. Which is safe. At 400 degrees.

Turn your oven off and let it cool. And you’re as good as new.
