Why does the Flat Top Grill change colors after cooking?Updated 5 months ago

Why does the Flat Top Grill change colors after cooking?

This color change is known as "seasoning." It functions the same as cast iron, which is actually initially silver (same as mild steel like the Flat Top) until seasoned. As you continue to cook on the Flat Top, it will grow darker, which is what you want. This darker color creates a non-stick surface while also building flavor. To clarify: Your Flat Top isn't permanently dirty or stained or burned. A darker Steelmade USA Flat Top Grill means it will infuse dishes with ample flavor and won't cause food to stick.
