I have this same pan but I can't get it to season properly for the life of me. I think its because I don't cook bacon in it.

what issue are you having? I have 2.. one of them has a black enamel inside.. and does not need seasoning.. another that I have needs it.. perhaps yours if fully enameled?

My Shun chef's knife.

Checkit



Hand sliced fresh garlic so thin you can read through it.

A close #2 would be my AllClad Classics.

It doesn't have any coating on the inside. Its straight up cast iron. But instead of the oils creating that nice smooth nonstick top coat it chars it. I never over heat it or atleast I keep it at the same temps as the rest of my cast iron and they are seasoned great.

two things. one; season with flax seed oil. wipe it on, pop it into a 400 degree oven..pan upside down so excess can drip out. let is sit until hot, shut off oven and let it cool. it will be bulletproof.

two: when you drop something in the pan, the pan better be rocket hot first. and the food better not be something delicate like fish. drop the food in, and let it sit. dont fuck with it. when the food crusts up, it will release. the you flip.

even my good pans still stick if i fuss with the food right away. let it crust.

(Same deal applies to your bbq grill)

I have an old ERIE cast Iron frying pan. It was given to my Grandmother when her and my Grandpap left Virginia to seek their fortune in Pittsburgh where my Grandpap would work for years as a Steel worker. The move created some hard feelings between my great grandma and her daughter (my grandma) so the only thing she was given as she left was this Cast iron frying pan. I never knew my Great Grandma, but I have the pan.

I almost never use it, its well over 100 yrs old, and use my Lodge cast iron all the time.

after alot of work..i have them seasoned very very well. they are as slick as my Teflon pans. and i break the rules..i wash them. no soap, but i hit them with hot tap water and a soapless green scrubber. i love these things. they are my chicken roasting pans, skillets..corn bread pans....pan fryers...there is nothing i cant do..well, i cant make soup they are the kitchen's ultimate multitasker.

tada!
+1 on the cast iron skillets. I heated my 2 seasoned up ones (one night) to cook steaks, got them to a medium high heat and seared those steaks and finished them in the oven. Man my wife won't let me cook them on a grill outside anymore! Don't forget pancakes in there too! YUM!!!!!!!!

A completely out-of-the-blue thing...my knife guy just dropped by (yes, on Christmas day) and handed me a gift. He says, "Thanks for being loyal customers. Enjoy!"





Its not often I'm at a loss for words. But I'm absolutely stunned.

Its so silly sharp I can't even describe to you. And talk about LIGHT...4.4 oz according to my scale.

Flabbergasted!

Sweet! Not a fan of that santuko shape but that thing is a beauty! I need a Japanese knife. I'll probably not go with a Wa handle. Stunning blade friend.
