What does it mean when you say the pot/pan is “fully seasoned”?


After the first seasoning it is recommended that you use them back-to-back a few times i.e use it often at least 3 to 4 times cooking wet recipes. This helps the pot to shrink slightly and will prevent it from holding moisture.

‘Wet recipes’ include making rice, quinoa, vegetable soups, stews, cooking lentils/beans, pasta, steaming vegetables etc.  Avoid cooking meat or non-vegetarian dishes while they are in this process.  Once fully seasoned you can use the pots to cook both vegetarian and non-vegetarian recipes. Also avoid dry or semi-dry cooking like roasting, or dry sauteing of spices etc. while still in this process.

The pots are considered to be “fully seasoned” after it has been used this way a few times.
