Knowledge You (and I) Should Have.

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.”

  1. Heat the Teflon-coated frying pan on the stovetop until it is just warm.
  2. Add just enough vegetable oil to to coat the inside of the pan.
  3. Swirl the oil in the pan to evenly coat the surface.
  4. Heat the oil until ripples begin to appear on the oil’s  surface.
  5. Remove the pan from the burner and pour out the oil.
  6. Wipe the inside of the pan with paper towels to remove the excess oil.
  7. 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

Looks like I’ve got some seasoning to do today!
