    • the pre-seasoning was good
    • The pan is made up of cast iron which makes it susecptible to rusting if not seasoned with a coating of oil after thorough cleaning
    • It says it comes pre seasoned but I would also recommend seasoning it on your own just to be safe
    • This pan supposedly comes seasoned.
    • Pan came seasoned and ready to cook on!
    • I did put a light coating of oil on it to refresh the seasoning, and that was enough
    • It is NOT well pre-seasoned, but it still gets five stars for what it is.

    • Very well seasoned griddle
    • but I do recommended seasoning them again before using them
    • I'll leave by saying, just because it comes pre-seasoned and is "advertised" as a non stick pan, you still need to use a grease/fat/spray of some sort until your pan has built up seasoning on it from cooking
    • but I would have liked a nice seasoned pan without having the scrub away rust and do multiple reseasonings.
    • Then, get your favorite seasoning oil (I use shortening) and apply a THIN layer of oil onto any part of the pan where the pre-seasoning was removed

    • for the best result first season the pan using the Oven... wash the pan with little soap and apply oil to pan (up, down and handle) and put in the Oven for 30 to 60 minutes
    • The only downside is the pre-seasoning is not as good as I've seen on the upper end brands like Cusinart.
