loganrollo: Why would anyone season a NON-POROUS surface?
Bill Doremus: I have on pan that I got some time back and seasoned it the oven method and
it works great. I received a whole set for Christmas and the directions
said to season them on the stove top. I did this now there is burnt oil all
over every pan I have now and they are sticky to the touch. I tried to wash
them with dawn but it would not come off. Do you think if I try to season
them by the oven method that this would help?
Sarah Chambers: The company states not to use spray oils, olive oils or canola oils to
season the pan. Use veg oil or shortening to season the pan. I have had
my pan for right at a year and am about to season it again. There are
reasons not to use these oils and telling them lies about what kind of oil
you used is not going to help anyone. I do not work for the company and am
not brand loyal, but when people do not do what they are told and then have
issues, it is their fault, not the fault of the pan.
Miztle Vazquez: I bought mine like two months ago and it was perfect I love it but I cooked
an egg and stick I'm so sad what can I do?
Jeanice Walters: My first OrGreenic said to season by coating the entire green surface with
cooking oil and then put it in a 300 degree oven for one hour. Remove, let
cool completely, wipe out and wash thoroughly. My next two skillets
(nothing is wrong with the first one, I just bought a smaller one and a
larger one). My experience is that the oven method works better than the
stove top method.
john t: After 6-8 months, mine started to stick in the center. Once after washing,
I noticed the center part of the pan had what looked like a residue, but I
could feel nothing there to the touch.
I cleaned the center with a paper towel, water and baking soda, which
removed the residue. Next, I'll season it again with hopes of having the
success I had with it initially.
Actually pleased with the product. But my seasoned cast iron fryer is the
best non-stick pan I have.
Laura Foye: Did you not wash the pan first? I think that's 'step zero'. I just
received a set of these as a gift, and I'm hopeful, but doubtful, that they
will meet the expectations the company puts out for them.
Timothy Acker: Such an important step should be done at the factory. It's like telling us
t attach the handle. Had mine on the stove for a half hour and never did
see it smoke.
ExcelDriveVideo: I've heard that from a few people. I've read my instructions ver batim....I
beleive they may have two versions of seasoning instructions out there.
peggy seay: did you season it?
ExcelDriveVideo: I'd bump up the heat....keep a close eye on it. Good Luck and thanks for
ExcelDriveVideo: Look at my other videos. It's called: The ORGREENIC Non-Stick Skillet
Frying Pan Review: Does it work?
Austin Walls: kermit?
Ambaa: That's strange, I've used mine for a couple months now and I've never
needed to use any oil on it. Everything slides just like it's supposed to!
Paul Wu: And after seasoned, should I rinse it?
Al Vignart: My first orgreenic (bought in August, 2012) was replaced yesterday -October
31, 2013- by our local CVS store. I brought it back because it did not
perform as manufacturer states: everything I attempted to cook did stick to
its center area. It looked 'new', for I took excellent care or it, except
for a few inexplicably very small chips at the bottom coating, where
aluminum was visible. I noticed this new unit calls for a different
seasoning procedure: one hour in a 300º oven... (continues)
allensacura22cl: is there a part 2? i can't seem to find it...
Robin Daniels: My small pan had stove top seasoning instructions....my larger one had oven
seasoning instructions. I think the oven method works better. I love mine
and have two small ones and one large one. I am buying another set for my
ExcelDriveVideo: There's the answer. People have been telling me about the alternate
seasoning methods. Good comment and thanks for watching.
avisdillon: Call the company. They will probably replace the pan free. My first one
came up with scratches somehow..don't know how it happened, but no
questions asked, they sent me new one free.. didn't evenhave to return the
peggy seay: i have been using medium heat and a very light coat of oil. it's been 51
minutes. no smoke. i see the oil turning brown, but it's not got to the
smoking point. i am following the directions. waiting on smoke.
Louise Padin: Flaxseed oil is what the professionals use. It has omega 3 and fatty acid's
in it and will take a high heat. It also creates the bonding polymer that
is why you season a pot in the first place. :) I have this fry pan, the
deeper pot and the small pot and they are great. :)
ExcelDriveVideo: I'll have to try it and get back to you.
Brook Gowin: Can I use olive oil or coconut?
D King: olive oil cannot tolerate higher heat compared to other cooking oils
ExcelDriveVideo: I just wiped mine clean with a damp cloth. Thx for watching.
Spiff Coltrain: how long did it take to smoke. i have been staring at mine now and it is
alexlee2679: Olive oil IS a kind of vegetable oil. Duh.
Al Vignart: (from previous comment) ...after applying a light coat of vegetable oil,
repeating twice a year afterwards. I'll do it today and post additional
comments. Here is a question for current users, since I like using a little
olive oil for flavoring: if I then opt to cook using olive oil... -would I
ruin it?, -is unit designed to be used 'dry-only'?. Manufacturer states it
can be used dry, but it does not say "do not use any oils when cooking".
Carl Reiter: You should have turned the pan upside down so that the grease will not pool
in the pan and place a sheetpan underneath the skillet to catch any oil.
ExcelDriveVideo: Good Advice! Thx for sharing.
Reborn: mine said to put a light coat of oil on the pan, put it in a pre heated
oven at 300 f, and leave it for one hour then let cool comletely and wipe
away excess oil
godofthisshit: any update on which method is better?
illxtra: My Orgreenic skillet instructions said: apply a light coating of veg. oil,
put in a pre-heated 300 degree oven for 1 hour, let cool completely & wipe
clean. I went to wipe the excess oil out the skillet was very sticky; I
couldn't wipe out the excess oil & had to let it soak in soapy water before
it went back to being smooth & slick.
clarenancy: I think aluminum pans like this don't get hot enough on a smooth surface
electric stove. On gas it will smoke.
peggy seay: did you use vegetable oil?
rafizzle6: twice a year? my 'seasoning' lasted 2 weeks before everything started
slowly sticking to the pan and now it's completely 'stick'..it's got
scratches now and whatnot..i tried seasoning it again but it just didn't
work..don't know what to say about the pan, had a high expectations for it
ExcelDriveVideo: You can, but they're boiling point is lower than a regular vegetable oil.
I'd use regular vegetable oil to season. Thx for watching!
ExcelDriveVideo: Good Luck. We use ours every day!
LamborghiniGal: It would be NICE of this video actually worked! It freezes! So, don't know
how he seasoned it, but the directions are to coat with oil (lightly) and
put in oven, on 300 for 1 hour. Let cool completely and wipe! I'm sure that
is what he did, but unfortunately, I can't view the video, because it
Maikah Parker-Alofs: ... "so my mom bought me one" hahaha
William Wynn: I got one and put it in the dishwasher first. Afterwards I used olive oil
as well. Once I saw the smoke I took a paper towel and wiped out the pan.
Let it sit for until I was ready to use. Like I said I just got this one,
so far so good.
MrBlister1972: Apply a thin coat of vegetable oil, bake at 300 degrees in a pre-heated
oven, remove, WAIT TO COOL, then wipe out excess oil...Be safe, BTW olive
oil has a much lower flashpoint temp than vegetable oil. Be safe and enjoy
the fruits (or eggs) of your labor.
Louise Padin: Try the flaxseed oil, in a hot pan and do it a few times. My pots work
wonderful and the seasoning lasted much longer than 2 weeks. :)
illxtra: Later on when I cooked my first egg whites, they didn't slide around the
pan like in the commercial. The moral of the story, ALWAYS use cooking
spray even on "non-stick" cookware.
ExcelDriveVideo: Thanks for the comment. I've since switched to vegetable oil.
jimginh: Should be seasoning the pan IN THE OVEN, not on the stove! And use flaxseed
oil or even better, sunflower oil, not vegetable oil, Crisco, coconut oil,
etc. Sunflower oil isn't very healthy when consumed, it's true, because it
contains high polyunsaturated fat. Polyunsaturated = best polymerization,
exactly why it's excellent for seasoning. Don't consume it; season with it!
For consumption, I highly recommend olive oil for cold/room-temperature
applications and coconut oil for cooking.
ExcelDriveVideo: Enjoy! They sound corny, but I love mine.
MrIdance1: just FYI the organic green pan.. the company says ONLY use vegitable oil,
when you call about your pan not working and want a refund, it will be
denied if you tell them you used something else other than vegitable oil,
SO WHEN THEY ASK WHAT OIL YOU USED , ALWAYS SAY VEGATABLE OIL! ITS THE
FIRST QUESTION THEYWILL ASK
ExcelDriveVideo: We'll I think it depends on the heat of your stove top. It did take a few
minutes. 5 or 6 on my stove if I remember correctly.
