Cooking perfection demands more than just skills; it requires well-maintained tools. Flat top grillers are popular in both professional kitchens and homes. Seasoning your flat top grillers ensures their longevity and adds flavor to your dishes. In this guide, we will explore the seasoning process, providing helpful videos and product links from CaterWize.

What is Seasoning, and Why is it Necessary?

Seasoning involves coating the cooking surface of your griller with oil and heat to create a non-stick surface. This not only prevents rust but also improves non-stick performance and imparts a unique flavor to your food.

Step-by-Step Guide to Seasoning Your Flat Top Grillers

1. Choose the Right Oil

Opt for an oil with a high smoke point, like grapeseed, flaxseed, or canola oil.

2. Clean Your Griller

Ensure your griller is clean. Here’s a fan favorite from CAB Foods Oven & Grill cleaner.

3. Apply the Oil

Spread a thin layer of oil across the cooking surface using a soft cloth or paper towel.

4. Heat It Up

Heat the griller on a medium heat until the oil begins to smoke.

5. Cool and Repeat

Let the griller cool, then repeat steps 3-4 three or four times to build a robust non-stick surface.

Here’s a YouTube video demonstrating the entire process.

Maintaining Your Seasoning

To maintain the seasoning, use non-abrasive cleaners and avoid acidic foods that may erode the coating.
