Ok....so you got a Blackstone Griddle! You've cleaned it, and are ready to start cooking, right? Not so fast! Don't forget to season your Blackstone Griddle before cooking on it. ***If you haven't cleaned your Blackstone Griddle yet, do so before seasoning it. Cleaning instructions here!
Like any other new toy, you're going to be super excited and want to jump in and use it right away. But...you have to wait until after you have fully seasoned your griddle. This process is easy to do and will take about an hour.
Tips for seasoning a Blackstone Griddle:
There are many options. I used the Blackstone Seasoning & Cast Iron Conditioner. But, you can also use just about any type of oil or cast iron conditioner. If you choose to season with oil, be sure to use one that has a high heat oil, such as Flaxseed oil. You can also use Olive Oil, EVOO, coconut oil, canola oil or vegetable shortening.
It should take about an hour to properly season a Blackstone Griddle. Most of this time is spent waiting in between layers of seasoning.
A Blackstone Griddle needs to be seasoned before using it so that a non-stick surface is created. If you do not season your griddle, the food will stick to the griddle, will be more difficult to clean, and will be more likely to scratch and wear faster.
A Blackstone Griddle needs to be seasoned well, with several coats, before the first use. Then, after every cook, you should do a light seasoning of one coat to help maintain the non-stick surface.
Technically, yes. If you try to scrape the seasoning off, it will start to flake off. However, with normal use, including using spatulas and knives, on the Blackstone Griddle, the seasoning should not easily flake or chip. If it does start to chip off, it's time to clean the Blackstone and re-season it.
