What to do if your pan has been improperly cared for

Action Oil the pan liberally with vegetable oil, butter or margarine and place in the oven at 175 – 200 °C for 15- 30 minutes or until the oil has been absorbed (not wooden handled pans, which should be placed on hob at medium temperature for 10 -15 minutes instead ) Allow to cool naturally. Remove excess oil with cloth or kitchen towel. Good ventilation is recommended during the re-oiling process.
Top Tip If the outside of the pan has been oiled, place it on a baking plate first.
