I recently bought a tagine for cooking. I have to season my tagine by heating it in the oven with the temperature below 300 F. My oven works with two settings of 350 and 375F. May I prepare my tagine for use on the stovetop with a diffuser or does it has to be prepared for the initial use in the oven? May I use a higher temperature of 350F? Please help me with your advice.

    Is there a name of a company on the instructions for seasoning? If so, you might try contacting them. Does the seasoning call for just heating, or for oiling or other prep before heating? – Joe Jul 8 '17 at 2:49

    What odd oven only has two presets like that? – rackandboneman Jul 11 '17 at 10:26
  • Can you give us more information? What material is the tagine made of? What are the instructions for the entire seasoning process? – Cindy Jun 13 '18 at 14:26

Ask a good friend, neighbor or nearby relative with a real or proper oven, if you can use theirs for the short period of time required to accomplish this task.

Make them a nice, flavorful dish and carry it over as a Thank-you gift after you are done.
