How to season Krampouz Waffle Iron
- Plug in the waffle iron, open it and set the thermostat to 300°C. Leave it to heat for 30 minutes.
- Then lower the thermostat to 270°C. Wait for 5 minutes to allow the temperature to come down a touch. Leave the waffle iron at this temperature (270°C) throughout the following steps.
- Using a brush, carefully apply a fine coat of frying oil to all the blocks and in the bottom of the grooves. Avoid pooling excess oil in the grooves of the waffle plates (if necessary, use a dry brush for even application). Leave this first layer to cook thoroughly for 10 minutes.
- Apply a second layer of seasoning in the same manner as the previous step. Wait another 10 minutes then turn off the waffle iron. Use frying oil with no other ingredients for the seasoning process.
Successful seasoning should result in a chestnut-colored surface (dark brown) resembling a varnish. Be sure to avoid using cooking sprays for the seasoning process.
