Blackstone Griddle Press is a great way to cook food evenly and with less fat. Seasoning your griddle press is a simple process that will help to protect the cooking surface and add flavor to your food.
What is Griddle Press Seasoning?
Griddle press seasoning is the process used to apply a thin coat of oil to the surface of your cooking equipment. The seasoning step is an important part of any process used to maintain a griddle press because it leads to the buildup of a non-stick coating. The non-stick surface of your griddle press is important for a few reasons.
First, it helps to prevent food from sticking to the cooking surface. While this is an obvious benefit, it also has three other benefits that are less obvious. A non-stick surface allows for easier cleaning, lessens the amount of oil used to cook (which is important for health and safety reasons), and helps to prevent food from drying out.
A non-stick griddle press is important because it is much easier to clean than a griddle press with a sticky cooking surface. Non-stick griddle press cooking surfaces are relatively easy to clean because food will not stick to the surface. Therefore, you can use a simple cleaning brush to clean the cooking surface without worrying about damaging the surface.
Why Should You Season a Griddle Press?
The main reason for seasoning your griddle press is to achieve the non-stick surface to which we have been referring. If you have purchased a brand new griddle press that has not yet been seasoned, you may find that food sticks to the surface. This is because the cooking surface of a new griddle press is coated with a wax-like substance that is intended to protect the press from rust while it is in storage. While the wax-like substance is designed to be removed, it can be a long and sometimes tedious process. Seasoning your griddle press is the easiest way to get rid of the wax-like substance and begin to build a non-stick cooking surface.
How to Season Blackstone Griddle Press?
The best way to season your Blackstone griddle press is to take a look at the instructions provided by the company. However, we like to think that we’re a pretty reliable source of information as well. Therefore, we have created a step-by-step guide for you to follow in order to properly season your griddle press.
First, place your griddle press on a surface that can handle the heat from the griddle press. We recommend that you place your griddle press on a surface such as concrete, steel, or tile. This will prevent your griddle press from being damaged by the heat that is emitted from the griddle press.
Next, plug your griddle press into an electrical outlet. We recommend that you plug in a griddle press that has not been seasoned yet because you may damage a seasoned griddle press by using it at this stage.
