I have a new square baker that I have used twice. I am very happy with it and obviously haven't put it in the dishwasher or used any soap etc. However, although I have wiped it down with water and used the scraper thing, it still has a couple of sticky, oily patches. That can't be right, can it? I know I need to season it, but that just seems skanky! Please help!!
I use soap if I have left something on a bit too long . A wee bit now and again won't hurt and you need to get food residue off. You might need to re-season with oil after washing with soap though. I love my dish - does gorgeous roast chicken and fab pizza bases but I know some people hate that they don't get really "clean". I am not so fussy
