How to Season, Reseason, and Master Your Blackstone Griddle

Welcome to a journey of culinary delight as we delve into the art of seasoning and reseasoning your prized Blackstone griddle. Whether you're a first-time griddle owner or a seasoned pro looking to refresh your cooking surface, this comprehensive guide has you covered.

Stuff You Need

Before you start your Blackstone experience by seasoning your Griddle, make sure you have all the items and supplies you'll need right by your side:

The Importance of Seasoning Your Blackstone Griddle

Seasoning your griddle isn't just a rite of passage – it's a crucial step that sets the stage for exceptional cooking experiences. Seasoning forms a protective layer on the griddle's surface, preventing rust and creating a non-stick surface that's perfect for creating your favorite meals.

How to Season Your Blackstone Griddle for the First Time

 

  1. Clean Thoroughly: Start by giving your griddle a thorough cleaning. Remove any manufacturing residue or debris. Then fill up a bucket of water and put some dish soap and simply scrub away at the griddle.

  2. Heat It Up: Turn on your griddle to Maximum High Heat. This opens up the pores of the metal, allowing it to absorb oil better. You want your griddle to get Dark which only takes 10-15 minutes.

  3. Apply Oil: We highly recommend you use the Blackstone Griddle Seasoning & Cast Iron Conditioner (Available on our website). If you don't have the Blackstone Griddle Seasoning, other regular cooking oils will work such as canola oil, flax oil, vegetable oil, and olive oil. So now you're asking yourself "If other oils will work why recommend Blackstone's Griddle Seasoning"? Our experience has shown that our proprietary blend works incredibly well for your initial seasoning AND provides superior protection in between uses. Long-term protection was particularly important to us while developing our Griddle Seasoning to ensure you protect your investment and have an excellent experience griddling for a long, long time.

  4. Let It Smoke: Once the oil starts to smoke, turn off the griddle and let it cool. The oil bonds to the metal, creating a protective layer.

  5. Repeat: For best results, repeat this process 2-3 times before cooking your first meal and you'll be good to go!

Now that you learned how to season your Blackstone griddle, Let us show you how to Re-Season.

How to Reseason Your Blackstone Griddle

Over time, even a well-seasoned griddle may need a refresh. Here's how to reseason:

  1. Clean Thoroughly: Remove any food debris and rust with a griddle stone or scraper. You can also get a bucket of water and add some dish soap and clean the top thoroughly as well after scraping excess debris.

  2. Heat and Clean: Heat the griddle to loosen the old seasoning, then clean it with hot water and a mild detergent. Rinse and dry completely.

  3. Apply Oil: Follow the same oil application process as seasoning for the first time.

  4. Heat Again: Heat the griddle until it smokes and then let it cool.

Top Tips for Perfect Griddle Cooking

  • Use the Right Oil: We recommend the Blackstone Griddle Seasoning & Cast Iron Conditioner due to the fact that it provides superior protection and in between uses as well. 

  • Avoid Acidic Foods: Acidic foods can strip away seasoning. Cook them in moderation.

  • Regular Maintenance: After each use, scrape off excess debris and wipe with a thin layer of oil to maintain the seasoning. 

Seasoning and reseasoning your Blackstone griddle may seem like a simple task, but it's a key factor in achieving culinary excellence and protecting your investment. With these steps, you'll be well on your way to sizzling, savory dishes that showcase your skills and the magic of a perfectly seasoned griddle while also making sure your griddle lasts you a lifetime.
