I'm sure it's on here somewhere but the search isn't all that great. Should I be putting oil or anything on my CI grate after each use? So far just been cooking and hitting w wire brush. Loving it! Thanks for any input.

    I don't.  With regular use it stays just fine.

    Yea, cool thing about CI is after a while it gets nicely seasoned and almost non-stick

    I thought I read where ppl were spraying w Pam after every use. I'm just cooking and brushing and all is well.

    After a sear, ill brush off big stuff, then give a spray or brush on some oil while everything is hot.
    Is it necessary? Not sure, but for me its cheap insurance.
