Care Instructions

Seasoning:

  • Prepare your frying pan by cleaning with very hot water, then dry it thoroughly
  • Pour one centimeter of cooking oil into the pan, and wipe it around. Then heat it on the stove on a medium-high temperature for about 5 minutes
  • Throw away the oil and wipe your pan with paper towels
  • The more the pan is used, the better the performance; the darker it becomes the better it is for natural nonstick properties

Use:

  • Heat a small amount of oil or fat in the frying pan, and once the pan is good and hot, seal the food about 45 seconds on each side before reducing the heat to complete cooking
  • Do not leave the meals in the pan after cooking, as the residual heat will carry on cooking your food

Cleaning after use:

  • Wash the frying pan with very hot water and a sponge, and wipe dry
  • From time to time, purify the pan by heating up cooking salt over a high heat for about 1.5 minutes, then wipe with a kitchen paper. The salt helps to suppress the residues and the odours from previous cookings
  • To store, wipe oil over the surface with a paper towel and put away in a dry place
  • Do not leave your pan to soak. If food sticks to the pan, use a green sponge to scrub it off, and re-season the area
  • Never put the pan in a dishwasher. The pan may rust if these conditions are not respected. Just scrub the pan with a hard brush to remove the rust, and season from scratch

Marvelous pan!

Having heard all manner of horror stories regarding the proper way to season carbon steel pans, I was somewhat apprehensive about this purchase. I needn't have worried! A hot wash to remove the inevitable manufacturing crud that sticks to the beeswax - while leaving a layer of wax behind - is all that is needed before seasoning. Then a good wipe of grape seed oil all over the inside of the pan bef Read more

For when you finally give up on non-stick coatings ...

If you've grown tired of grey steaks and watery bacon cooked (boiled, actually) in non-stick pans, then this is the way to go. Finally you will own a pan that you can get properly hot. Your recipe's instructions to "brown" the meat (onions / chicken livers / whatever) will no longer seem to be a sad joke. I am very happy with this purchase.

Best Pan Ever

This is the best pan I have ever used. After many years of use/abuse my old non-stick coated pan was no longer so non-stick any more. After a bit of research I came to conclusion that this pan was the way to go. After a bit of seasoning NOTHING sticks to this and if looked after, I will be handing this down to my son. Now all I need is the smaller one as it is quite heavy and my wife can't use it. Read more

It's like a vegetable patch

The more you tend it, and kind of neglect it at the same time - the better it gets. I love it so much I also got the 32cm. They make beautiful frittatas, start on stove top and finish under the grill in the oven.

Don't scrub it with soap. Directly after use just add boiling water and scrub with a dish brush only. Dry it, give a super thin layer of flax seed oil - rub most of it dry Read more
