Seasoning a cast iron pan serves three primary functions: 1) to create a non-stick cooking surface; 2) to prevent rust from forming on the pan and 3) to prevent the food from taking on a metallic flavor. In fact the only way to properly season a pan, is to use it, and it will takes months, if not years to fully season a pan. This is why many cooks are so protective of their cast iron pan! On the link below you will find some instructions for seasoning your cast iron.
