I once again got rid of my carbon steel pans LOL
What a relief. FINALLY OUT.
No more tinkering with potential rust issues…
No more dirty oil seasoning issues.
No more delicate cleaning of the pans.
No more anxiety over my wife accidentally will clean and soak the CS pans and let them rust over night.
No more uneven heating if I don’t heat the CS pan up for decades.
They’ll be replaced by a trio of pans that are superior to carbon steel in every way possible EXCEPT how they’ll look after a year or two or even a month of high heat searing usage and abuse.
My trio of Demeyere Proline pans.
The final nail in the coffin was hammered in yesterday.
Last week I accidentally soaked my Darto N30 for 4-5 minutes, while washing the pan I had to take a pi_zz and came back 4-5 minutes later.
My Darto N30 had rusted all over the bottom during these 5 minutes from soaking in the kitchen sink
Yeahhh I know you can’t soak raw iron, but sh_it happens sometimes and I’m tired of having to deal with a pan I can’t soak for just minutes to clean it.
Some of you may have CS pans with year old seasoning that’s not as delicate as mine. I’m not getting to that point ever because I’m getting rid of my CS pans now.
Too cumbersome for my household.
I removed the rust - took me 15-20 minutes to get it clean and seasoned.
Used the Darto N30 again last evening.
Without me knowing it my wife took it away from the stovetop and placed it on a damp rag/cloth and left it there overnight.
This morning it had totally rusted on the bottom once again. Took me 15-20 minutes once again to clean it from rust and season it again.
NO MORE CARBON STEEL PANS IN MY HOME !!!
OVER & OUT WITH CARBON STEEL PANS !!!
