WARNING
COOKING WITH OIL OR GREASE
• This cooker does not have automatic thermostat controls so must be attended and monitored at
all times during oil heat up and frying.
• For frying with this cooker, do not use a cooking vessel larger than 36-quart or smaller than
12 inches diameter.
• When cooking with oil/grease, a thermometer must be used. Follow instructions in this manual
for proper testing, installation and use of your frying thermometer.
• Follow instructions contained in this manual for proper assembly and positioning of the cooker,
gas leak and thermometer test, determining proper amount of oil to use, heat-up and frying
operation, cleanup and storage.
• Cooking oil pre-heat up to over-heat times can vary significantly with relatively small adjustments
to regulator; variable wind, ambient temperature, altitude, starting oil temperature, and type of
cooking oil used.
• Do not allow cooking oil/grease to exceed 400˚F (200˚C) which is the FIRE HAZARD zone on the
thermometer. Cooking oil/grease will ignite and catch fire at 550˚F to 700˚F (287˚C to 371˚C).
• Due to varying heating and cooking times, check your thermometer every 3 minutes to ensure
cooking oil does not exceed 400˚F (200˚C). This is an ATTENDED appliance. DO NOT leave
appliance unattended while heating oil/grease, cooking food or cool down period after use.
• This cooker can heat 3 quarts of cooking oil/grease to 350˚F (175˚C) in 3 to 5 minutes.
• DO NOT use a lid when pre-heating or cooking with oil. Using a lid when frying greatly
increases the potential of over-heating the oil to ignition and fire.
• Smoking oil is an indication that the oil is too hot and may ignite. Regardless of thermometer
reading, if the oil/grease starts to smoke, turn OFF fuel supply to the burner and
STOP COOKING IMMEDIATELY. This indicates the thermometer is not working properly.
Discard the thermometer and call 1-800-864-6194 M-F 8am - 5pm CST for assistance.
Replacement thermometer Model #5020 or #5025.
• Never overfill the cooking vessel with oil/grease or water. Follow instructions in this manual for
establishing proper liquid levels for cooking.
• When frying with oil or grease, all food products MUST be completely thawed and towel dried
to remove excess water. Failure to completely thaw and dry foods may cause oil or grease to
overflow from cooking vessel. If ice is present on the food, it means the thawing process is not
complete and may cause a boil over when placed into HOT oil causing a fire and severe burns.
• Never drop food or accessories into hot liquids. Wear protective gloves and S-L-O-W-L-Y lower
food and accessories into cooking oil in order to prevent splashing or overflow. Be careful when
removing food from oil. It is hot and could cause burns.
• In the event of rain, snow, hail, sleet or other form of precipitation while cooking with oil,
cover the cooking vessel and immediately turn off the burner and gas supply. DO NOT MOVE
cooker or cooking vessel.
• When cooking with oil/grease, have a BC or ABC type fire extinguisher readily accessible.
• The cooking vessel remains at scalding temperatures long after cooking has ended. Allow appliance
to cool below 115˚F (45˚C) before cleaning or storing. Cool down period varies with amount of
oil/grease used, wind and ambient temperature.

dangerous condition. Over-filled tanks can build up pressure and cause the relief valve to expel
propane gas vapors. The vapor is combustible and if it comes in contact with a spark source or
flame; an explosion causing severe burns, bodily harm, or death could occur.
•
Always use a protective cylinder cap when cooker is not connected to cylinder.
•
If you exchange a cylinder with a qualified exchange program, be sure the cylinder has a
Type-1 valve and an over-filling prevention device (OPD).

THERMOMETER TEST INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
Always use a thermometer when frying any food products. A thermometer is a sensitive measuring
device which may not work properly if dropped, bent, or twisted. Always check to be sure your
thermometer is working properly before frying. DO NOT use a meat thermometer for frying.
2-STEP METHOD for Thermometer Testing
1. TEMPERATURE ACCURACY:
While wearing protective gloves, hold the thermometer by the dial and insert stem into boiling water.
The needle should quickly move around the dial and register approximately 212˚F (100˚C)
(plus or minus 5˚F). This indicates whether or not temperature reading is accurate. NOTE: Due to
water evaporation, the maximum reading possible on a thermometer in hot water is 212˚F (100˚C).
2. TEMPERATURE RANGE:
Hold thermometer by the dial and place end of the stem above a lit match or lighter. The needle
should quickly move around the dial and register a temperature reading far above 350˚F. If the needle
stops at a low temperature reading such as 225˚F; then the thermometer is damaged and cannot be
used. Discard the thermometer and call 1-800-864-6194 M-F 8am - 5pm CST for assistance.
Replacement thermometer Model #5020 or #5025.
DO NOT attempt frying if the thermometer is not working!

to Basket
1. Make sure clip on thermometer is about 2" below the dial.
2-inches
2. For frying, attach the thermometer clip on the inside
of the basket with the stem immersed in oil at least 1-inch.
3. DO NOT insert thermometer stem into food.
This can cause incorrect thermometer reading.
1-inch
4. During frying with oil, the thermometer dial indicator
Oil Line
will continue to rise. Remain with the cooker and check
the thermometer every 3 minutes to ensure the dial indicator
does not stop before reaching optimum fryng temperature range from 325˚F to 350˚F (162˚C - 175˚C).
5. This cooker can heat 3 quarts of cooking oil/grease to 350˚F (175˚C) in 3 to 5 minutes.
6. DO NOT allow cooking oil/grease to exceed 400˚F (200˚C) which is the FIRE HAZARD zone on the
thermometer. Cooking oil/grease will ignite and catch fire at 550˚F to 700˚F (287˚C to 371˚C).
7. Regardless of thermometer reading, if the oil/grease starts to smoke, turn OFF fuel supply to the burner
and STOP COOKING IMMEDIATELY. This indicates the thermometer is not working properly.
Discard the thermometer and call 1-800-864-6194 M-F 8am - 5pm CST for assistance.

HOW TO DETERMINE PROPER AMOUNT OF LIQUID FOR COOKING
(For use with cooking vessels that have and do not have Maximum Fill Line)
Do not use a cooking vessel larger than 100-quart for boiling or 36-quart for fyring on this cooker.
Do not use a cooking vessel smaller that 12" diameter on this cooker.
WARNING
If too much water or oil is inside the cooking vessel, it is possible for spillovers to occur when adding
a basket filled with food product, or during a rolling boil. Spillover of hot liquids can cause severe
burns and property damage. Carefully read and follow these instructions.
BOILING WATER LEVEL DETERMINATION:
1. Place the food product in the strainer basket.
2. Place the food product and strainer basket into the empty vessel.
3. Add water into the vessel until the food product is completely submerged. There must be a minimum
of 3 inches between the water level and top of the vessel.
4. Remove the food product from the vessel. The remaining water level indicates the amount needed
to cook the food product. Typically, the amount of water needed for boiling is one-third full or less.
NOTE: For #SP-1 Jet Cooker, the flame spreader should be OPEN for boiling.
STEAMING WATER LEVEL DETERMINATION:
CAUTION
Never allow all water to evaporate completely when steaming as the heat from this cooker can melt
a hole in the cooking vessel.
Typically 2 to 3 inches of water is used for steaming food products. Use cooking vessel (stockpots) having
perforated baskets that are elevated above the water level. Be certain your stockpot has a vented lid
for steaming.
NOTE: For #SP-1 Jet Cooker, the flame spreader should be CLOSED for steaming.
21
FRYING OIL/GREASE LEVEL DETERMINATION:
Follow the 6 steps below to determine the proper amount of oil to use in cooking vessels that do not have
maximum fill lines.
1. Place the food product in the strainer basket.
2. Place the food product and strainer basket into the empty vessel.
3. Add water into the vessel until the food product is almost submerged. There must be a minimum
of 3 inches between the water level and top of the vessel.
4. Remove the food product from the vessel and either mark the level on the side of the vessel or measure
the amount of water in the vessel. This water level indicates the amount of cooking oil needed to cook
the food product. NOTE: Cooking oil/grease will expand when heated and increases the level inside
the cooking vessel.
5. Remove the water and completely dry the vessel and the food product.
6. Add cooking oil into the vessel up to the indicated level.
NOTE: For #SP-1 Jet Cooker, the flame spreader should be CLOSED for frying.
DANGER
IF THE INFORMATION IN ITEMS 1- 6 ABOVE IS NOT FOLLOWED EXACTLY, OIL OVERFLOW MAY
OCCUR CAUSING PROPERTY DAMAGE, PERSONAL INJURY, OR DEATH.
BOILING INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
If too much water or oil is inside the cooking vessel, it is possible for spillovers to occur when adding
a basket filled with food product, or during a rolling boil. Spillover of hot liquids can cause severe
burns and property damage. Carefully read and follow these instructions.
1. Follow instructions to properly assemble and position the cooker. Perform gas leak test, and water
level determination.
2. Add the determined amount of water into the cooking vessel.
3. Light the cooker by following Lighting Instructions on pages 16 and 18 in this manual.
4. Depending on the size of cooking vessel and
volume of water used, heat up time can range from
15 to 45 minutes. Covering the cooking vessel with
a lid will accelerate water heat up time to the
boiling point.
NOTE: For #SP-1 Jet Cooker, the flame
spreader should be OPEN for BOILING
Flame Spreader
OPEN position
5. Once water has achieved a rolling boil, reduce cooker flame
as low as possible by turning regulator valve as directed.
6. Using an insulated mitt, carefully remove the lid.
CAUTION
Open far side of the lid first so that steam and heat escape away from you.
22
7. Using an insulated mitt, carefully lower the food basket into the boiling water, then place lid back
on the cooking vessel. NOTE: Immersing the food basket will quickly reduce water temperature.
8. Increase cooker flame to desired level by turning regulator control knob as directed. It will take
several minutes for water temperature to increase and achieve a rolling boil.
CAUTION
Once a rolling boil is achieved, reduce cooker flame to maintain the desired level. Lowering cooker
flame reduces chance of a boil over during cooking.
FOLLOW 3-MINUTE : 15-MINUTE BOILING RULE
Boiling time varies with type of food being cooked. Seafood generally has the shortest boiling time.
For superior cooking results, follow these simple steps:
1. Heat water to rolling boil.
2. Reduce cooker flame and carefully lower food basket into boiling water and cover the pot.
3. Increase cooker flame and cook until a rolling boil is achieved.
4. Leaving pot covered, reduce cooker flame and allow rolling boil to continue for 3-minutes.
5. After 3-minutes have passed, shut off gas to the cooker. Leave the pot covered and allow to set
another 15-minutes.
During this 15-minute period, the food will continue to cook and absorb seasoning without being
over-cooked. Generally, the 3-minute : 15-minute rule results in shrimp and crawfish being perfectly
cooked, seasoned and easy to peel.
REMOVING BASKET FROM COOKING VESSEL:
1. Shut off gas to the cooker.
2. Wearing an insulated mitt, carefully remove lid from pot.
CAUTION
Remember, lift the far side of lid first to protect you from escaping steam and heat.

steaming.
WARNING
• Use an insulated mitt when lifting stockpot lid when steaming. Steam escaping through the lid vent
under pressure is invisible and can cause severe burns. Use extreme caution when removing
stockpot lid when steaming or boiling.
• Do not allow water to evaporate completely during steaming. The bottom of aluminum stockpots
will quickly warp and melt if all water evaporates; even under a low flame. If steaming for a long
period of time you will need to occasionally add water to the stockpot.
1. Follow instructions to properly assemble and position
the cooker. Perform gas leak test, and water level
determination.
NOTE: For #SP-1 Jet Cooker,
CLOSE the flame spreader for STEAMING
2. Arrange food in the perforated basket.
3. Heat up time for 2 to 3 inches of water will be very fast.
4. Once boiling is achieved, reduce cooker flame
by turning regulator valve as directed.
5. Using an insulated mitt, carefully lower food basket
into the cooking vessel, then cover with lid.
(Be certain food is not touching the water.)

6. Leave the cooker flame set low during cooking
to maintain a steady boil.
Hint: Cooked seafood turns from translucent to opaque when done.
7. When steaming is done, turn off gas to the cooker. Wearing an insulated mitt, carefully lift the lid
and remove food basket from the cooking vessel.
FRYING INSTRUCTIONS
(Read pages 26 - 27 about Cooking Oil)
WARNING
This cooker does not have automatic thermostat controls so must be attended and monitored at all times
during use. When cooking with oil/grease, a thermometer must be used to monitor temperature. Oil/grease
heated above 400˚F (200˚C) will ignite and catch fire causing property damage, personal injury or death.
NOTE: Optimum frying temperature range is 325˚F to 350˚F (163˚C to 177˚C).
1. Follow instructions to properly assemble and position the cooker. Perform gas leak and thermometer
test, and oil level determination.
2. After making certain food product is thawed and towel dried, add food product into the empty basket.
CAUTION
Before lighting cooker, always have all food product prepared and ready for frying. This will reduce
future distractions and better enable proper monitoring of thermometer and heating oil.
24
3. Add the determined amount of oil/grease into the
cooking vessel.
NOTE: For #SP-1 Jet Cooker,
CLOSE the flame spreader for FRYING
4. Attach your thermometer to the pot, making certain
the stem is immersed into the oil at least 1-inch.
CAUTION
Thermometer shall be attached to the cooking vessel
for heat-up period only. Later, attach thermometer
to the basket for frying.
Flame Spreader
CLOSED position
5. Light the burner on the cooker as described.
NOTE: Spend a few moments to adjust the flame up and down to become familiar with flame
adjustment process.
6. Reduce burner flame to lowest possible setting and carefully set cooking vessel with oil and thermometer
onto the cooker.
7. Increase flame to desired level and monitor your thermometer. When using 3-quarts of oil or less,
the heat-up time to reach 325˚F to 350˚F will take from 3 to 5 minutes. Actual heat-up time will vary
depending on type and amount of oil used, regulator setting, ambient temperature and wind.
WARNING
DO NOT cover cooking vessel with a lid during oil heat-up or frying. This can cause oil to heat faster,
overheat, ignite and cause a fire.
8. When temperature reaches 325˚F - 350˚F, reduce burner flame to lowest level. Wearing a
protective glove, remove thermometer from pot and attach to side of perforated basket with food
product already placed inside.
WARNING
Thermometer will become very hot and cause burns if touched by bare hands. Always wear protective
gloves or mitts when handling a hot thermometer.
9.
Leaving burner flame at lowest setting, and wearing a protective glove, carefully and S-L-O-W-L-Y
lower the basket, with thermometer attached, and food product into the cooking oil. Inserting the
food product into hot oil will cause a brief and furious spatter, and will quickly reduce oil temperature.
Once spatter subsides, increase the flame so that temperature can return to 325˚F - 350˚F.
10. Frying time will be fast so NEVER LEAVE COOKING UNATTENDED and constantly monitor
your thermometer.
WARNING
Regardless of thermometer reading, if the oil/grease starts to smoke, turn OFF fuel supply to the
burner and STOP COOKING IMMEDIATELY. This indicates the thermometer is not working properly.
Discard the thermometer and call 1-800-864-6194 M-F 8am - 5pm CST for assistance.
Replacement thermometer Model #5020 or #5025.
25
11. When frying is complete, first turn off gas supply at the cylinder valve, then close regulator valve.
Do this before removing the basket from hot oil.
12. Wearing protective gloves, carefully remove basket from oil. Keep basket above the pot to drain.
13. After hot oil has sufficiently drained, carefully remove food from basket. Allow liquid to cool to 115˚F
(45˚C) or below before moving cooking vessel.
WARNING
Fryer thermometer should not be inserted into food or touching food when measuring temperature
of cooking oil. End of the thermometer stem should be at least 1 inch below oil level.
CAUTION
Wait for oil to cool to or below 115˚F (45˚C) before pouring into its plastic container.
Hot oil can melt the plastic and cause severe burns or bodily harm.
COOKING NOTE:
When frying the very first basket of food product, the food may reach proper doneness before the cooking
oil returns to the optimum frying range between 325˚F to 350˚F. This is normal.
For subsequent basket loads of food, the oil should return to the 325˚F to 350˚F cooking range while
the food product fries to proper doneness.
As cooking process continues, a steady frying temperature can be maintained with burner flame adjusted
to a lower setting.
COOKING OIL: Important Facts to Know
Since early times when human civilization first developed pots and pans, people have used various forms
of cooking oil for frying. Originally animal fat (grease/lard) was used for frying which now is mostly
replaced by olive, vegetable and peanut oil.
It is almost universal knowledge that over-heated cooking oil will catch fire and burn. Cooking oil has
a flashpoint temperature ranging from 550˚F to 700˚F, depending on type of oil used, altitude, wind,
and ambient temperature. However, most people do not realize that cooking oil typically does not burn
when below its flashpoint temperature.
Cooking oil contained inside the confines of a stockpot, skillet or pan (vessel) is quite stable when below
its flashpoint temperature. For example, heated cooking oil at optimum frying range of 325˚F to 350˚F
does not catch fire even if a flame is accidentally placed in contact with the oil. This stable characteristic
enables cooking oil to be used on kitchen stoves inside hundreds of millions of homes worldwide. Imagine
someone smoking while frying at 350˚F and the cigarette falls into the hot oil. The fire inside the cigarette
will be extinguished by hot 350˚F cooking oil very similar had it fallen into water.
On the other side, cooking oil must be respected and used responsibly. As cooking oil is heated up
approaching flashpoint temperature, it becomes unstable and begins to breakdown. As cooking oil
breaks down, vapors are created that when mixed with oxygen, will burn. When heated to very high
temperatures, cooking oil vapors will self-ignite.
26
The following is a typical scenario of what happens as vegetable oil, contained in a cooking vessel, reaches
its flashpoint temperature and self ignites:
• The oil first becomes darker and emits an unpleasant odor.
• At about 440˚F, the oil begins emitting a pale vapor smoke.
• At about 500˚F, the smoke turns black.
• Soon a heavy, thick black smoke belches out.
• At about 600˚F, a small flame flickers out from the oil. At this point the cooking oil has reached its
point of self-ignition.
• If the heat source below the vessel remains engaged, the flame will quickly grow.
• All the while cooking oil burns, thick black smoke continues to belch forth.
Another point many people do not know is that over-heated cooking oil that catches fire can make a
huge flame. For example, a small 12" skillet with only 1/2" deep of cooking oil can create a flame
7- ft to 9- ft high! A large cooking vessel containing up to 3 gallons of cooking oil can create a flame
up to 15- ft high!
On average, every year in the U.S. there are 80,000 kitchen/house fires caused by burning cooking
oil that are responded to by a Fire Department. Imagine a 3- ft high kitchen stove supporting a cooking
vessel emitting a 7- ft flame… that is a dangerous house fire!
The vast majority of these kitchen fires are the result of leaving cooking oil unattended. Simply answering
the door bell, phone or tending to a crying child are sufficient distractions that allow a 12" skillet with
1/2" cooking oil to over-heat and catch fire.
Eventually, burning cooking oil will self extinguish. Actual burn out time does vary but on average:
• A 12" skillet with 1/2" deep cooking oil will self extinguish in about 5 - 7 minutes after first flame emits.
• A cooking vessel with 3- gallons of cooking oil will self extinguish in about 20 - 25 minutes after the
first flame emits.
Either way a very large flame is raging long enough to spread fire to any combustible structure that it touches.
Another well known point is that cooking oil can be re-used. Most cooking oil brands recommend using
oil 4 - 5 times if it is strained, and can be stored in a cool dark place from 9 - 12 months.
During the storage period bacteria will form on poultry, fish or animal fats remaining in the oil. This
bacteria is quickly killed when the oil is re-heated. Prior to using again, it is recommended that you smell
the cooking oil. If it smells unpleasant or rancid, discard properly and use new cooking oil.
However, most people are unaware that used cooking oil has a reduced Smoke Point and Flash Point
temperature due to partial breakdown of the oil. (Partial break-down is caused by previous use and
bacteria) Although safe for normal use, this is just another reason to never, ever leave cooking oil
unattended during heat up and cooking.
Cooking Oil facts to Remember:
• 100% peanut Oil is considered a very stable cooking oil having a higher Smoke and Flash Point
temperature than other vegetable oils.
• Some cooking oil is sold as a "blend" of vegetable and peanut oil.
• Re-used Vegetable and Peanut Oil both have reduced Smoke and Flash Point temperatures.
• As a result, Flash Point temperature of cooking oil ranges from 550˚F to 700˚F.
Remember; Think Safety and use Common Sense when frying with cooking oil/grease.

GENERAL MAINTENANCE & STORAGE
Intense heat from the cooker will burn away paint from parts of the frame, windscreen flashing, and flame
spreader. This is normal and will cause a slight 'odor' for a few minutes during the initial use. The exposed
steel will rust. Occasional care must be taken to prolong the life of your cooker.
1. Store cooker in a dry place. Do not store outside exposed to weather. Storage of a gas cooker
appliance indoors is permissible only if the cylinder is disconnected. If storing cooker indoors, detach
and leave LP cylinder outdoors. LP cylinders must be stored outdoors out of the reach of children and
must NOT be stored in a building, garage or any other enclosed area.
2. Occasionally spray paint on affected areas of cooker frame after it has cooled.
3. Spray WD-40 on the burner grid after it has cooled.
DANGER
Spray paint and other aerosols contain flammable PETROLEUM DISTILLATES under pressure. Flame from
burner or heat from cooker may cause spray can to burst violently resulting in death, serious burns and
bodily harm. Perform all touch up maintenance to a cool, dry cooker frame and burner, below 115˚F (45˚C).
4. For long term storage, cover cast iron burners, regulator hose assembly, and jet tube in a plastic bag.
5. Spiders and small insects have been known to spin webs inside the burner tube. Obstructions in the
burner tube interfere with the flow and mixture of air and gas through the burner. A clogged burner
tube may result in a fire beneath the appliance. If this happens, clean the burner tube with a stiff,
bent wire. Burner Tube for Model #SP10; Jet Tube for Model #SP1
6. Turn air control shutter to closed position after each use to reduce chance of insect intrusion.
( for Model #SP-10 only)
7. Do not tamper with or attempt repairs on the burners, frames, regulator valves, or LP cylinder. Allow
only qualified LP gas dealers to make repairs. For replacement parts call Barbour International, Inc. at
1-800-864-6194.
8. Always close LP cylinder valve first after use. Always use and store LP cylinder in an upright position.
Never store or transport LP cylinders in occupied enclosures.
9. Check and tighten any loose hardware before each use.
10. Never store cooking liquids in aluminum cooking pots. Salt and seasoning will form pit holes in the
bottom of the pot resulting in cooking oil leaking onto the open burner flame.
WARNING
Discard any aluminum cooking vessel should cooking oil leak through pit holes. Leaking oil will ignite
and cause a fire.
11. Inspect entire cooker including regulator hose assembly and burner assembly before each use.
Replace any damaged or worn parts. Use only parts specified by Barbour International, Inc.
32
CARE & USE INSTRUCTIONS FOR COOKWARE
Polished Aluminum Pots
1. It is recommended to season the pot before use. Pour small amount of vegetable oil inside and spread
it with a paper towel until the entire bottom and sides are coated. Let it stand for 10 minutes. Wash
out the interior of the pot, it will be ready to use. DO NOT apply to flame during any of this process.
CAUTION
Empty aluminum pots will melt if placed on cooker over an open flame.
2. After cooking, let pans and lids cool gradually. Do not pour cold water into a hot pan. This can cause
the bottom of the pan to warp, and it can cause oil/grease to splatter. Always wash the pans thoroughly
in hot, soapy detergent after each use to remove all traces of food, salt, or grease particles that will
burn causing stains when the pan is reheated.
3. Seasoning the pots will make cleaning easier. Scouring pads and aluminum cleaners are okay for the
interior of the pots, but will scratch the exterior.
4. Polished aluminum pots will tarnish and discolor with normal use.
Our motto is: “The uglier the pot, the better it cooks!” Occasional use of "Cream of Tartar" will bring
back some of the luster. However, aluminum pots will tarnish and become dull with normal use.
5. Boiling with large quantities of salt is very corrosive and can cause pits in the pot and basket.
To reduce the chance of this occurring, do not allow salt water or seasoned oil/grease to remain in
the pot for a long period of time after the pot has cooled. The basket and pot should be thoroughly
cleaned after each use. DO NOT store cooking oil inside the pots. Salt and seasonings will settle and
can cause pits to form at the bottom of the pot.
Stainless Steel Cookware
1. Before using for the first time, wash in hot soapy water. Dry immediately to prevent water spots.
To prevent scratches, avoid using sharp utensils when cooking.
2. Discoloration of stainless steel cookware will result if the pieces are allowed to overheat excessively.
For hard-to-clean stains or discoloration of the stainless steel, use a nonabrasive stainless steel cleaner.
Follow the directions on the container using a clean, damp sponge or cloth. Do Not scrub finish with
a soap-filled steel wool pad or harsh abrasive cleanser as scratching will occur.
Cast Iron Cookware Seasoning Instructions
Seasoning prevents rust & keeps food from sticking.
1. Wash cast iron cookware in warm soapy water to remove the Paraffin wax coating.
2. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
3. Coat the entire surface of the cookware with solid vegetable shortening. Place in 300˚F oven for one
hour. Hint: Season the cookware outside in a gas grill keeping smoke and vapors away from the house.
4. Remove from oven or gas grill, pour out excess grease and wipe with a paper towel.
Properly seasoned cast iron cookware will turn black after repeated use. This is normal.
