Are the pans perfectly seasoned? NO! That takes a lot of time, and use with proper care to achieve. While the Pro-Logic line can be used right "out of the box" I personally suggest putting the pans through a seasoning process in the home before use. It want hurt the pans -- It can only help move the process forward.
Ah. This was a non-label, "Target" brand CI pan so I was doubtful. Fortunately I have some bacon in the fridge patiently waiting to be cooked up, too
I have some canola oil around, I think, so I can use that to give it an extra seasoning before using. Thanks for that reccomendation btw everyone - I had a can of crisco that I made a pie crust with recently and then after the fact read the label and threw it away. Very glad I don't have to buy more now... haha... ick.
Thanks so much you guys
