    I just received the same model brand new bacon press and am seasoning it right now. Five more minutes then power off to cool. Thank you for the video. Subbed!

    You can also coat the top part also with that hot vegetable oil

    Can I use Canola Oil? Thanks for the instructions.

    Could you not just place the press into the pan first, thus wetting with oil without use of the paper towel? I understand the need for perhaps helping it into the grooves, but seems unnecessary if you are going into the pan with it anyway.
