post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I recently purchased 3 fry pans amongst other things for my kitchen. I am curious as to if I have to season the pans.... They are natural finish 3003 dent restistant aluminum. I have found lots of resources that say yes and an equal amount that say no...... Uuugggg I'm at a loss could someone please help me?

aluminum does not need to be seasoned. But you DO need to use oils of some type. These have excellent heat conductivity, but beware hot spots.

Agree. You only season carbon steel and cast iron.

They can be seasoned, but will not patinate like cast iron or carbon steel. If you will be washing with hot water and soap, seasoning isn't worth it. Seasoning on these pans was mostly done before the rise of non-stick surfaces  and these pans would be dedicated to only cooking eggs or that sort of thing.
