The other day I realized that my Cuisinart Green Gourmet cookware may need to be re-seasoned as my grilled cheese stuck to the skillet.  Being a Technical Writer I always read the books/instructions that come with items I buy but apparently I missed the part about re-seasoning my skillets twice a year.  Oops.  A quick internet search led me to the following re-seasoning instructions provided by Cuisinart.

Place the skillet in an oven preheated to 300 degrees and leave for five minutes.  Remove and allow to cool enough to apply a coating of vegetable oil.  Put back into the 300 deg. oven for 20 minutes.  Remove and wipe away any remaining oil.

I re-seasoned the two skillets I use most often and it seemed to have worked like a charm. Hopefully any future grilled cheese sandwiches will cook as easily as they had in the past now that I’ve cared for my (expensive) cookware! Lesson learned.

  1. Thanks for this post. I love my Green Gourmet pans and, like you, didn't realize that I was supposed to re-season these each year -- so thanks for that tip!

    I'm also wondering if the re-seasoning instructions are the same as the "original" seasoning instructions. I can't seem to find that information online any more and neither of the new pans that I purchased included seasoning instructions with them!


Thanks for stopping by!
