    While you don't have to pre-season most stones these days, you can speed up the natural process by:

    1. Wipe the new pan with a wet cloth (no soap)
    2. Dry in oven (low heat)
    3. Apply a very light coat of neutral vegetable oil with an old towel (I find paper tends to snag on new stones)
    4. Bake on med-high (400) as you would a cast iron pan (but not upside down).
    Once the stone is seasoned, you'll find things don't stick as badly (or at all). After normal use, just wipe the stone with a wet cloth (if soiled) and use a gentle utensil for scraping off anything that might stick (it should pop right off).

    This question is for commercial bakers pride stone ovens, not residential oven stones
