Received my wok from Ceramic Grill Store this week and seasoned it yesterday. Scrubbed it 3 times to get oils, etc. off. Put on some peanut oil with paper towel and put it in the oven at 450* for 20 minutes. When I removed it, it had a nice golden color except for about a 3 inch diameter on the bottom. The oil pooled in that area and it didn't have the golden color. I scrubbed it again and did the same procedure 3 mores times. That area still didn't get the same color. Although I think it should be O.K., if I were to do it again, I would use a little less oil and I would turn it upside down in the over to prevent the pooling.
