Since I live in an old house I’m familiar with traditional paints, especially linseed oil paint. Linseed oil dries at room temperature within a day or two, same with flaxseed oil, wich is the food grade version of linseed oil. When my cooper pans were new I coated the cast iron handle with a thin layer of flaxseed oil and after a few days it was dry and hard.
No to my... hmm... ”idea”. Is it possible to put a very thin coating of flaxseed oil in a cast iron or carbon steel pan and then just wait for a layer of seasoning to form? (Yes, it sounds totally wrong and it probably is.) I’m about to try out - on the outside of a cast iron pan (to minimize the rough texture).
