Prove a pan. How to prove a frying pan or skillet
If you have just bought a new frying pan, omelette pan or skillet you will find that it is very easy to prove it. You can also prove a pan that constantly has food sticking to it. Once treated you will fins that food is less likely to stick to the pan.
All you need is 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and some salt.
Pour the oil into the pan and sprinkle salt liberally all over the inside. Heat over a moderate heat until smoking hot, and then carefully rub the salt and oil well into the pan with paper towel. Remove from the heat and wipe dry.
Repeat this process twice more. Once completed, finally wipe the frying pan dry with paper towel.
