Carbon steel

Some steel accessories, such as the Carbon Steel Wok, need some extra attention, so that you can enjoy them for an extra long time!

You must burn it in before using it. This is how you do it:

  • First rinse the pan with hot water and then dry it well.
  • Put some oil in the pan, so much that the bottom of the pan is covered with a layer of oil.
  • Heat the pan until the oil starts to smoke
  • Roll the pan slightly so that the oil spreads over the steel. Tip: be very careful, you don't want the hot oil to get over your hands!
  • Discard the oil and wipe the pan dry with some kitchen paper.

The pan is now ready for use! If you want to prevent rust, repeat this process every now and then for the maintenance of the steel.

Note: the more often you use the pan, the better the non-stick coating will be. You can see this well by looking at the color of the pan. The darker the pan, the better the non-stick properties.
