To prepare hard-anodized aluminum non-stick cookware for seasoning, clean and dry it with a paper towel to eliminate any leftover packaging debris.

Always clean new cookware with mild dish soap after unpacking to remove any debris or filmy residue from the manufacturing company.

Drizzle cooking oil into the hard anodized pots, skillet, or pan and place it over high heat.

Fill the pans halfway with a neutral oil, such as vegetable or olive oil, to coat the surface gently.

Spread the cooking oil around the inner surfaces of the hard anodized non-stick cookware with a clean, fresh sponge.

Allow the cookware to cool completely before removing it once the oil smokes.

After applying the oil, gently wipe away any excess with a clean towel and carefully store the cookware.

After that time has passed, you should thoroughly rinse the pan. Make sure to remove all residue from the bottom and sides. Then it would be best if you used waterless cookware.
