    I have just bought myself a Dutch Oven, same as the 4 litre one supplied by Ronnie Sunshines I believe.

    It didn't come with any instructions, but is supposed to be pre-seasoned. Just wanting to make sure the job is done properley, I want to season it myself. Any advice gratefully received.

    I bought a couple of cast iron Skillets just before Christmas, I wasn't sure they were seasoned, so I re seasoned them. I smeared them liberally in cooking oil, wiped off the excess, then put them in a hot oven for 20 minutes. When they had cooled, I repeated the process. Hope this helps.

    How I did mint was to wipe with oil, place in very hot oven until it stops smoking, allow to cool down a bit, and repeat 3 or 4 times.

    Excellent stuff, and the tip from British Red's tutorial about doing it all outside in the BBQ is priceless! A real life saver.

    Of course I shall claim it as my own idea and gain brownie points for being so thoughtful.

    Many thanks for all replies.
