Caring for your Blue Moon Disk
- It's not necessary to go through a seasoning period with your disk - when you get it you will want to lightly coat the whole thing with vegetable oil and just start cooking! - they will cook just as good the 1st time as they will after 20 meals. If you want to preseason them, a good way to do that is to cook a piece of bacon moving it around spreading the grease.
- Blue Moon Disks are steel and they will rust if you don't keep them lightly oiled. Just oil them before and after each use and its not something to worry about. Store them in the burlap bag in the garage or a closet. Cool Cookware should not be fussy!
- After cooking, you will want to clean the disk and re-oil it. We scrape any remaining food off, hand-wash it with warm water and gentle soap, dry it off and re-oil it. Don't be afraid to run a little water over it scrub it with soap, then re-oil it.
- If your best friend borrows the disk and leaves it out in the rain and it gets rusty (I'm not admitting anything here), you won't be the 1st or the last and the rust can be removed. The most effective way to re-polish/remove rust is with an "angle grinder" that uses a "Flap Disk" pad. You can get one of these for about $10-$20 at Harbor Freight (again not admitting anything here). This is a pretty common tool used by welding shops, metal shops, and old guys that seem to have everything. You can ask them to do it ( They may charge you a small fee), or if you are a DIY person you will find its not hard or expensive.
