seasoning a ceramic pan. did i do it wrong?

i was recently gifted a ceramic frying pan. i looked up how to care for it and read on multiple sites i needed to season the pan. just now, i washed and air dried my pan. i poured a generous tablespoon of canola oil in and put my (gas) burner on halfway. as my floors are slanted, i turned the pan occasionally to counteract a bit of pooling. after nearly an hour, the oil had failed to smoke and the wooden handle was seemingly starting to char where it met the ceramic. i’ve turned it off and put the pan on another burner to cool. there appear to be a few small burn marks on the surface that look like they’ll wipe away when it’s cool enough to touch. my question is, what went wrong? the only site that gave close to a time frame for the oil to smoke said 1/2 hour, tops. plus the handle definitely would’ve eventually burned. is it possibly just a poorly made pan? edit: teaspoon to tablespoon in 2nd paragraph submitted by /u/twobit211 [link] [comments]
