  • How to Care for Your Griddle

    Griddle Care & Maintenance

    Most of our professional griddles come with a True-Seasoned Finish, just like all of our cast iron. To keep this finish in tip-top condition, your griddle needs a little TLC every now and then. By following the guide below, you will help keep your griddle clean, prevent rust, and build up the glass-like finish to keep food from sticking.

    Temperature Management

    Giving your griddle time to pre-heat properly will ensure you’re getting the best cooking performance possible. Start by setting your heat to Medium or Med-Low for about 5 minutes. This should bring the griddle surface temperature to about 350°-400° F, depending on the weather and environment. Then turn the heat to Med-Low or Low for 2-3 minutes for uniform heat across the entire cooking surface. The steel heats up quickly but cools slowly, so you’ll have plenty of heat to work with even after you turn down the burners. You’re ready to get cooking.

    Managing the heat on your griddle is important to prevent any possible damage. While the steel is strong and durable, you should only use Low or Medium heat settings. This is especially important if you want to use different heat settings on a large griddle that covers multiple burners. You have the capability to warm a tortilla on one side and cook a fajita mix on the other, but you want to keep both settings on Medium or lower.


    After each use, clean off any food particles while the griddle is still warm. You might want to use a metal spatula or chain mail scrubber to remove stubborn bits. Then wash with hot water, mild dish soap (never use abrasive detergent), or our Cast Iron Cleaner. Rinse and dry thoroughly. Never scour or use a dishwasher, as this could chip the nice, seasoned finish you’re going for.


    Once your griddle is clean, slowly warm it up again on your stove. Apply a thin layer of Cast Iron Conditioner or cooking oil. We recommend Cast Iron Conditioner because it has a palm oil base, which boasts a longer shelf life than any other natural oil. Be sure that the entire surface, including all corners, have been coated thoroughly. This will ensure that all surfaces of your cookware will be properly seasoned. This finish helps protect the steel or cast iron from rust and contributes to a nonstick cooking surface. Let your griddle cool, then wipe off excess conditioner or oil with a clean cloth.


    After your griddle is clean, dry, and seasoned, you will need to store it in a dry, clean area. You can use one of our carry bags, specifically designed to hold your professional griddle. If you store it in one of these bags long-term, leave the zipper open 2-4 inches so the metal doesn’t “sweat.” This will prevent rusting.

    Pro Tips

    • • Be sure that your griddle is level before cooking, so that any juices or grease will drain properly. To test your griddle’s angle, pour a cup of water on the corner farthest from the grease drain and see where it flows.
    • • Use our grease cup accessory for an easy clean-up.
    • • If you need to adjust the heat on your griddle, do so a little at a time. The metal will heat quickly and cool slowly.
    • • Lightly oil the griddle before each use while it’s heating up. You can use Camp Chef Conditioner or cooking oil.
    • • The steel will continue to antique and darken with each use—it’s okay for it to accumulate a patina.
    • • Rusty, metallic tastes or discolored foods are signs of inadequate seasoning or may result from cooking heavily acidic foods. If this occurs, wash the griddle thoroughly and re-season.
    • • Check out all the cooking accessories we offer to go along with your griddle. You’ll be cooking like a pro in no time.

  • How to Use Your Outdoor Pizza Oven Like a Pro

    So you’ve just unpacked your Italia Artisan Pizza Oven or Outdoor Oven Accessory, and you’re ready to get cooking. First of all, congratulations on your new purchase. You’re in for plenty of goodies like backyard pizzas (here’s a dough recipe), skillet brownies (we’ve made those too), plank salmon (yummmm), and more. But before you fire up the oven and toss some food onto the stone, we wanted to share a few pro tips with you. These will help you get the most out of your new outdoor oven, no matter what meal you’re cooking. Ready? Here we go.


    Pro Tip #1

    Your stove’s Low and Medium settings will give you all the heat you need for your Outdoor Oven Accessory.


    Pro Tip #2

    Just like a true brick oven or your home oven, preheating your outdoor oven is essential. Always allow 10 minutes or more for your oven to get to the right temperature.


    Pro Tip #3

    Temperatures and cooking times will vary depending on outside temperatures, weather conditions, and what type of food you’re cooking. For example, frozen pizza will cook differently than a pizza made from scratch or store-bought dough.


    Pro Tip #4

    Keep an eye on the internal air temperature by looking at the built-in temperature gauge on the top of the pizza oven. Internal air heat will help melt cheese, soften toppings, and bake the top of your pizza crust. This temperature will react quickly when you change your heat setting or remove the metal oven cover.


    Pro Tip #5

    The pizza stone temperature will rise more slowly than the internal air temperature, but it will eventually become the hottest part of the oven. This is where most of the cooking happens (and how you get a crispy pizza crust).

    Pro Tip #6

    Use an infrared or cooking surface thermometer to monitor your pizza stone’s temperature.


    Pro Tip #7

    The ideal baking temperature for artisan pizza is 500° F to 550° F. Other kinds of pizza are best at 400° F.


    Pro Tip #8

    To melt cheese or other toppings as you remove your pizza, lift toward the top of the oven and hold for a few seconds before taking it out.


    Pro Tip #9

    Cast iron is perfect for baking breads or desserts in an outdoor oven.


    Pro Tip #10

    We have a few accessories just for cooking pizza in your new outdoor oven. Check out our pizza peel, pizza spatula, and rocking cutter to complete your pizza chef collection.
