I got a 7 quart lodge. I am not really sure if I need to season it or not. On the side of the box it states " seasoned for a natural, easy release finish that will improve with use". So is it safe to say it is ready to use?
Also is chilli a bad idea for the first use of the dutch oven? I have read that acidity foods are not good for the dutch oven until it has a heavy seasoning. I am also to sure how acidity chilli even is lol.
Thanks for any help
