Your CampBoss Camp Oven needs to be broken in or ‘seasoned’. Before First Use – Wash the camp oven thoroughly with warm soapy water and then dry thoroughly with clean paper towel before starting the seasoning process.
Seasoning – Coat paper towel in cooking oil or cooking fat and wipe all the surfaces of the camp oven bundle. With a clean paper towel, wipe off excess cooking oil or cooking fat. Place camp oven into the braai with lid and close lid. If you don’t have a lid on your braai, just place camp oven on the grill. A conventional oven or campfire coals can be used as well. Heat until camp oven is nice and hot, just starting to smoke. Remove from the heat and before it cools completely, wipe off all excess oil on the inside of the camp oven with clean paper towels.
After Every Use – Clean with warm soapy water using mild detergent. Dry thoroughly with paper towel and lightly coat with cooking oil or fat before storing in bag.
