Seasoning with oil doesn't mean you have to cook something with it. It
you take some vegetable oil, smear it around the pan/utensil, then wipe it
I don't know the why's or wherefore's of this method. Just know that it
the recommended way of seasoning for many years. I wonder if a quick spray
of Pam would work too.
Reminds me of a pewter beer mug I was given years ago. I was told to
it with beer--pour beer into it before using it for anything. Then
it for beer and nothing else.
