How would you say "the pan needs to be seasoned before using it?"
for the first time.Thanks.
I f anyone wants to know how to "cure" a pan, you just heat up the pan with some oil inside until it is smoking. Then you put it immediately under cold water - taking care not to get scalded by the steam. When it has cooled down, you just clean it with kitchen paper and you have a pan that you can use and nothing will stick. Each time you use it, just wipe it clean with paper and the "curing" will last.
Sazonado is another word.
I'd say 'condimentado' more than 'curado'. Sorry Oxford dictionary.
The adjective one would use for "seasoned" wood is "curado" according to my Gran Diccionario Oxford.
I imagine that the "it" in your sentence refers back to a cast iron skillet and would think that "curado" could be used, but I have never cooked in any of the many Spanish speaking countries.
