How to season your baking steel

How to season your baking steel

With a baking steel, you can achieve professional baking results in your own oven.

The baking steel lasts a lifetime, but for consistent results, it's important to build up a good seasoning from the start and maintain it regularly.

Before you begin

The baking steel is pre-seasoned with vegetable oil, so it's ready to use right away. However, for better rust protection and nonstick properties, we still recommend that you give your baking steel seasoning the first 2-3 times you use it.

In this post, we'll guide you through the process step by step.

First time baking

One hour before your very first baking session, coat your baking steel in a thin layer of vegetable oil - we recommend grapeseed oil. Before applying the oil, ensure that the baking steel is completely dry and free from dirt.

  • Apply the oil and wipe it with a dry, lint-free cloth to evenly distribute the oil in a thin layer.
  • Place the baking steel in the oven at 240 degrees Celsius for one hour to let the oil bake in.
  • After one hour in the oven, you can start baking on it immediately.

Do I need to oil the baking steel every time before using it?

We recommend repeating this process the first 2-3 times the baking steel is used, but afterwards, it's not necessary to oil the baking steel before each use.

However, to maintain your seasoning, you should repeat the process 1-2 times annually.

If you've accidentally washed your baking steel with water and soap, or if you've just removed rust from the surface, it's also time to give your baking steel a new seasoning.
