Chefs normally add a drop of oil to the sizzle platter to ensure that any food placed on it does not burn, plus this also helps with the sizzle and smoke effect.

Please ensure that your kitchen staff or customers do not touch or try to lift the sizzle platter with their hands as these are extremely hot.
If you are using these sizzle platters for the first time we recommend that you firstly wash the pan with luke-warm, mild soapy water, being careful not to scour the platter. Rinse the cast iron platter in warm water and dry. Coat the platter in cooking oil and leave on a low heat for approximately 30 minutes. Wipe off any excess oil which may remain on the pan and you are ready to go!
