Default Re: For those interested in flaxseed

I've seasoned with flax oil, but not on waffle irons or trivets. It has a much more pungent odor when seasoning but it gives the iron a rich dark brown color. Even after a lot of use the exterior of the pans I seasoned with flax oil still have a little brown to them. There doesn't seem to be much difference in cooking performance vs seasoning with other oils but I do prefer it for pans I'm more likely to display rather than use.

For a waffle iron or trivet I'd simply use whatever food grade oil on hand that happens to have the highest smoke point and adjust the seasoning temperature accordingly.
