Why is seasoning Stoneline Cookware important?
The original Stoneline Cookware has stone throughout the surface and makes the surface much harder then your standard non-stick cookware. Plus this gives you the added benefit of cooking on natural hot stone.
Due to the natural stone in original Stoneline Cookware it is important to properly season the cookware. It is as simple as wiping a small amount of high temperature oil over the surface with a paper towel. That small amount of oil absorbs into the natural stone and aides in the non-stick process. No need to heat the cookware up first, or soak it in oil, etc, simply season when cold and it is all done.
Why high temperature oil? Wouldn't any oil do the job?
We recommend high temperature oil (Rice Bran, Grape Seed, or Avocado) for two reasons. First all original Stoneline Cookware is a great conductor of heat. A medium setting on a gas or induction cooktop will result in the surface of Stoneline getting up to 240 degrees Celsius quickly. Low temperature oils (generic salad & cooking oils, butter, Olive Oil) all start to burn between 160 - 180 degrees Celsius. The last thing you want is to be burning oil or burning food in your cookware where you end up with those little black bits of burnt oil all over your food.
Secondly a high temperature oil ensures you can get your original Stoneline Cookware hot to sear the perfect steak, or create that delicious stir fry without any fats or oils while cooking. The natural oil in the stone from seasoning keeps your Stoneline Cookware completely non-stick. Using a low temperature oil it will just burn away out of the stone in the surface and can start to limit the non-stick capabilities of the cookware.
A high temperature oil for seasoning will maintain your original Stoneline Cookware in the best possible condition and ensure you can cook all your favourite meals without using any fats or oils while cooking.
