Caring for your Muurikka griddle pan
When you have a new griddle pan, you need to start by cleaning it with mild detergent and season it properly. Heat the griddle pan until it darkens and then spread a thin and even layer of fat – such as our frying fat or a neutral cooking oil – over the entire surface before heating the griddle pan thoroughly for about 15 minutes. It's all right if it starts to smoke. Then let the griddle pan cool before wiping it with kitchen paper and applying a new, thin layer of fat.
To clean the griddle pan after use, you usually only need water. Do it immediately after use and you'll extend the life of your griddle pan. Wipe away food debris and heat the griddle pan; pour in some water and bring to a boil, then use a dish brush to loosen any food debris; wipe the griddle pan dry and apply a little fat to the cooking surface. Very dirty griddle pans may need to be cleaned with coarse salt. Read more in our FAQ.
If you know you won't be using your griddle pan for a long time, we recommend that you clean it thoroughly, re-grease it and store it in a dry place. If your griddle pan has rusted, you can always clean it with steel wool or a wire brush and then re-season and re-grease it. By taking proper care of your Muurikka griddle pan, you will be able to enjoy it for many years to come.
