- Lodge L8CF3 Covered Chicken Fryer, Black. Pre-seasoned skillet is ready-to-use right out of the box. The black patina given to the cookware by the factory seasoning process is, in fact, vegetable oil that has been baked into a piece of cookware that has emerged from an individual sand mold.
- This coating of oil is a functional application and not a cosmetic application. The cookware is hanging as it rides through the electrostatic sprayer and commercial conveyer ovens at very high temperatures.
- This allows the oil to penetrate deeply into the pores of the iron which creates an easy release finish. As a result of this process, you may see a blister or bubble of oil at the southern-most point or at the end of the handle of the cookware piece.
- If visible, it will rub or flake off with your finger, leaving a brown spot. Don't worry, it's not rust but a seasoned spot that is brown, indicative of the varnish stage of seasoning.
- As a matter of fact, this is the color of home seasoned iron until it has been used several times. The brown spot will turn black with use. USE & CARE: While the skillet comes pre-seasoned to prevent food from sticking, it works best when sprayed or lightly coated with vegetable oil before use.
- After cooking, we recommend cleaning with a stiff nylon brush and hot water. Using soap or the dishwasher is not recommended, and harsh detergents should never be used. Towel dry immediately cleaning and apply a light coating of oil to utensil while it is still warm.
