1)  Cook up a Feast: Complete 

After the food is removed from the SearPlate and set aside, use a flat-edged spatula to scrape the remaining grease and leftovers off the griddle and into the fire pit. It’s most efficient to do this step while the SearPlate is still hot and on the fire pit.

2) Grab a Friend, Lift, and Move

You may hear the steaks calling your name but before you dig in, it’s essential to remove the griddle from the heat. Grab a friend and a pair of heat-resistant gloves and lift the SearPlate off the fire pit.  

If the griddle is left on the fire as you continue adding more logs for your evening fire, the valuable, nonstick seasoning that builds up over time will burn off, causing you to restart the process. It will be worth it in the long run to use the extra seconds and remove the Griddle immediately than start the seasoning process from scratch.

3) Make it at Home 

You’ve got your SearPlate in hand but you don’t want to hold this hunk of hot steel for too long! Slide it into the SearPlate Griddle Stand for a secure place to cool and store away from the crowd. If you don’t have the stand, a non-combustible surface like cement, brick, or pavement will do. 

It’s VERY IMPORTANT to keep the hot griddle away from any children and pets. If you’re cooking in the evening, keep it in a well-lit space to prevent tripping and the curiosity of any pets to get the best of them.

4) A Little Extra Care Goes a Long Way

After the SearPlate has had time to cool and the food has disappeared, take a few minutes to wrap things up. Grab some food-grade oil (canola, avocado, and grapeseed work great) and paper towels to prepare for the oiling process. It’s likely that the Griddle is still warm, so you may want to use gloves for the process. 

Add a few drops of oil to the SearPlate Griddle.


Applying oil to the griddle


Grab a few paper towels and rub a thin, even layer of oil into the surface of the Griddle. This process protects the SearPlate in between cooks.

5) Until Next Time 

Store the Griddle in the garage, garden shed, or even outside. If you’re following the proper care process and taking the extra seconds to oil after use, your SearPlate will be good to go in the outdoors all year long.
