Coated in wax!
August 18, 2016
Nice griddle, but it arrives covered in a wax coating. It's not pre-seasoned, it's covered in parafin wax.. making it unsuitable for cooking or use until all the wax is removed, and the griddle can then be seasoned.
Why would they go to the effort of wax-coating it, instead of just pre-seasoning it?
I'm still working on removing all the wax.. scrub brush and soap didn't do it. baking it at 400 to melt the wax and wiping it with a towel seems to have removed the bulk of it, but it's still waxy to the touch and isn't suitable to be seasoned. Honestly, it's pretty annoying to buy a product and have it require so much effort before I can even season it and use it.
