Knowledge Tip #1:
Season your teflon pans.
Say whaaat? Yeah, that’s right. Season up those bitches. I never knew this was something you were supposed to do until the other day when my grandmother mentioned that she was going to season my uncle’s new teflon pan. I went along with it, like I completely knew that is what you were supposed to do…
…In all actuality, I did not have a clue what she was talking about. I knew you had to season cast iron pots and pans, but I had no idea this applied to teflon.
So, I googled that shit.
Here we go:
According to Erica Sweeney, an eHow.com contributor… “Although Teflon-coated frying panshave a nonstick surface, they sometimes require seasoning. “Seasoning” means to treat the pan with oil to create, or rejuvenate, a nonstick surface… [w]ith use and as Teflon-coated pans age, the surface may need to be seasoned to add to its life and effectiveness. Seasoning a Teflon-coated frying pan, or other Teflon-coated cookware, is fast and simple.”
- Heat the Teflon-coated frying pan on the stovetop until it is just warm.
- Add just enough vegetable oil to to coat the inside of the pan.
- Swirl the oil in the pan to evenly coat the surface.
- Heat the oil until ripples begin to appear on the oil’s surface.
- Remove the pan from the burner and pour out the oil.
- Wipe the inside of the pan with paper towels to remove the excess oil.
- Let the pan cool to room temperature.
and that’s that! Here’s the direct link, because I did copy this word for word for word… http://www.ehow.com/how_5627566_season-teflon-coated-frying-pans.html
