9 Best Oil Recommendations for Blackstone Frying Pans

There are many options for seasoning a Blackstone skillet, including with oil, but of course among the various types of oil on the market there is a type that suits and gives the best results on a Blackstone skillet. Here is the review.

What Does Blackstone Pan Seasoning Mean?

Blackstone skillet is a very popular type of skillet for cooking because of its non-stick material, so this type of skillet is the choice of households and restaurants as a cooking tool. But if not used properly, blackstone pans can rust and eventually reduce their non-stick properties. And this is certainly not wanted by mothers.

In order for its non-sticky properties to persist, you can do several methods including using extra virgin olive oil. The content contained in extra virgin olive oil is not only good for health, it makes the food taste better, it can also maintain the non-stick ability of the blackstone skillet. And you won't get a crust on the surface of the pan because you're cooking when you use extra virgin olive oil for seasoning.

Recommended Ingredients for Seasoning Blackstone Pans

There are actually many ingredients that can be used to season a Blackstone skillet, but we think extra virgin olive oil comes first. Although the price is a little expensive compared to vegetable oil, it is worth the benefits you get, especially for body and heart health. And the quality of this extra virgin olive oil can also be seen in the condition of the Blackstone skillet which is still good even though it has been used for cooking for a long time.

What Is the Oil's Smoke Point When in a Blackstone Frying Pan?

Good and bad oil quality can be seen from the smoke point of the oil when cooking? The smoke point of an oil is described as the temperature at which the fat in the oil used begins to decompose. It is at this smoke point that it becomes a reference for the quality of the oil which is good for health. Below we will review the smoke points of the types of oils that people commonly use for cooking.

Vegetable oil

Vegetable oil is similar to canola oil but there is a difference between the two, namely canola oil is a single type of vegetable oil and vegetable oil is a mixture of other oils. Vegetable oil has a smoke point of 400-450 which is slightly lower than canola oil. But both are still safe for consumption based on research by nutritionists and food. And both oils are suitable and safe to use for cooking on Blackstone pans.

Extra-Virgin Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil is the type of oil that I often use to cook food and season blackstone pans because of its excellent properties and goes well with blackstone ingredients. Extra virgin olive oil has a lower smoke point than other types of cooking oil. The smoke point is in the range of 350-400 degrees.

For me personally, oil is not only used as a cooking ingredient but must have health benefits as well. Because in the oil there is a fat content that can certainly affect health. And my choice in cooking activities is this extra virgin olive oil, because it contains high antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that vegetable oils don't have.

The content of compounds in extra virgin olive oil is also equipped with other nutrients such as vitamins E and K. To taste this olive oil also has a distinctive olive taste. Because the manufacturing process is different from vegetable oils, which are made with a process so that the natural taste is lost, and eventually the nutritional content is also reduced.

Olive Oil

Olive oil is similar to extra virgin olive oil in that it is made from olives. But because of the different manufacturing processes so they are divided into two categories namely ordinary olive oil and extra virgin olive oil. Regular olive oil is processed more so that it has a higher smoke point than extra virgin olive oil, which is 375 – 425 degrees Fahrenheit. Regular olive oil can also be a good choice to use as cooking oil or Blackstone seasoning. Regular olive oil tastes more neutral than extra virgin olive oil.

Avocado oil

Avocado oil is indeed quite expensive compared to other types of oil. But in terms of health and nutrition have in common with extra virgin olive oil. The smoke point of avocado oil is 520 degrees Fahrenheit and is good enough for a Blackstone skillet.

Because the basic ingredients are also quite expensive and rare, namely avocado, that is why the price of avocado oil is more expensive than olive oil and vegetable oil. And indeed if for ordinary cooking at home using avocado oil will increase shopping costs. 

Peanut oil

Peanut oil is widely used as a cooking ingredient by people in Asia. Peanut oil has a smoke point of 450 degrees and is slightly spicy in taste. So if you cook using this type of oil, you have to think about dishes that match the spicy taste contained in this peanut oil.

The price of peanut oil is more expensive than vegetable oil, but it contains quite a lot of nutrients and anti-oxidants. But you should not eat foods that use excessive peanut oil because it can cause inflammation due to the high amount of omega-6 fats. But for a Blackstone skillet, peanut oil is quite good and suitable.

Linseed oil

Flaxseed oil belongs to the food grade category because it has a small smoke point of 250 degrees. That is why linseed oil is recommended for use in Blackstone pans. But indeed the price is quite expensive and rarely found in ordinary stores and rarely people who cook using this flaxseed oil.

canola oil

Canola oil has a smoke point of about 450 -470 degrees Fahrenheit. This oil is a popular type of vegetable oil and is most often used by grills. Because of its nature, many people use canola oil for baking. Also a cheap price with good quality for a Blackstone skillet.

Grapeseed Oil

Grapeseed oil has a smoke point of 390 degrees. Although the price is quite expensive, it has many nutrients and vitamins for health. Grapeseed oil tastes similar to extra virgin olive oil but is more expensive. This type is also great for Blackstone pans.

Sunflower oil

Like other types of oil, sunflower oil can also be an option for use in your Blackstone pan. The price is quite expensive but it has good nutrition for health, especially the content of vitamin E which is good for the skin. The smoke point of sunflower oil is 440 degrees.

Coconut oil

Coconut oil is the most widely used by mothers, because apart from being cheap it also has a smoke point of around 350 – 400 degrees Fahrenheit and can be a great choice for flavoring Blackstone. But for those who have heart disease, it is better not to use coconut oil for cooking because the saturated fat content is quite high.

Prohibited Ingredients for Blackstone Frying Pan Seasoning

Above is a list of great ingredients for seasoning a Blackstone skillet. And here are some ingredients to avoid and don't use to season a Blackstone skillet.


Butter has a smoke point of about 300 – 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Therefore, butter should be avoided when seasoning a Blackstone Pan. You can cook with it, but butter can't make the long-lasting coating that Blackstone needs. Since butter is a solid and not a liquid like oil, that's why butter isn't great for Blackstone pans.


Crisco is an excellent non-oil ingredient for flavoring Blackstone. Crisco has a smoke point of 490 degrees. But the method of using crisco for a Blackstone skillet is different from other oils, the trick is that you have to add a few tablespoons of crisco then spread it evenly throughout the pan using a microfiber towel until all parts are exposed to the crisco spread.
