    I hope it is okay to post this here. It does have to do with camp stoves and it is made by Coleman. I recently picked up this Coleman Griddle, Model 5140c, in box and it came with the handle! Made in Canada as well, which I thought was pretty cool.

    I have washed it with soap and hot water. Is there anything else I need to do before I can safely use this to cook food? I have included some pictures as well.

    Thank you for the help and suggestions. I really love this site and hope to post some more photo's of my collection as it is a bit smaller as I had to sell of a bunch of my stoves as I had moved and some other stoves I have gotten recently. Most of the stoves I have gotten recently are propane fueled, and I hope it is okay to still post them here...

    I have an aluminum cook set - very heavy, thick cast aluminum, which has a 3-inch deep 9 -inch by 13 - inch baking pan and a top which serves double duty as a lid and also as griddle. When using the griddle I use whatever cooking oil is available - bacon grease, canola oil, corn oil, etc., and it works well, the food does not stick. cleans up with dish detergent. I don't believe the aluminum will "season" like cast iron. It heats up quite evenly, without hot spots. Give it a try with some bacon and eggs followed by hash browns or pancakes. Let us know the results!
