Default Re: CI Seasoning?

My point was that there's a lot of what might appear conflicting information on the subject. More often, it seems that some people are just trying to be different, like their way is the only, best way. Do you really need to preheat the pan? Probably not. It likely comes from the (erroneous) notion that iron has pores that open when heated, and that the seasoning will "stick" better. On the other hand, most long time collectors started during a time when Crisco was an accepted standard for manual seasoning. Imagine trying to apply Crisco to a cold pan, or worse, a gem pan or waffle iron, then trying to wipe it all off.

So can you say how you do it?
