CI Question

If I just use this for searing, is there any point in attempting to keep it seasoned?

    Yes, keep is seasoned. You don't have to be OCD about it. Good advice above. Eating off of a rusty surface is the alternative. Not tasty.

    And be sure to use the flip side.

    In cooking, often we implement steps for which we have no explanations other than ‘that’s what everybody else does’ or ‘that’s what I have been told.’  Dare to think for yourself.

    I don't think you need to try and keep that nice black shiny smooth seasoning that many CI fanboys shoot for. If areas of seasoning burn out just make sure to keep an oily film on it after cleaning so it doesn't rust.

    you can just seasoned the side you use......other side will rust but it that doesn't bother you, then just one side is ok. ACGP, Inc.

    Keep it well oiled and make sure you store it in a very dry place.  That's all you need.
