Re: Carbon Skillets

So, I went for yet another potato dish in mine... today was Spanish tortilla. Start off with generous oil, on 5heat, sliced onions and small cubes of potatoes. Everything was sliding around nicely till the point I added salt, pepper, and dried thyme & rosemary. I'm not sure if it's one, all, or non...

Re: Carbon Skillets

Cooked up some pork chops in the 14" Mineral B tonight. This was the first time cooking with it. Worked great but ended up losing most of the seasoning that I put on with the salt/oil/potato skin method. Found this out when I was drying it on the stove with a film of water inside it. Instantly form...

This knife actually looks pretty cool. Have you used this? How's it sharpen up? Edge retention?

It is pretty nice, solid simple carbon. Sharpens up easy and not too reactive. I have several of their knives.

Re: Carbon Skillets

As my grandkids call them: the "ugly" skillets (compared to the All-Clads) may take some time to fully season but when they do, even crispy runny eggs slide right out. :)

Re: Carbon Skillets

Are you saying I'm baking the pan with too much oil? At this stage I'm really just daubing the paper towel with a 1.5cm of oil from the bottle, and then stretching that across the whole pan. Surely that can't be too much :o is the method you suggest to absorbed the baked layer? I might give it a tr...

Re: Carbon Skillets

The fact it is sticky to the touch suggests so. You could start over by burning and seasoning again but over very high grill heat.

Re: Carbon Skillets

Too much oil...heat up pan then add kosher salt and green onions to absorb excess oil and remove metallic taste. Scrub onions and salt on pan surface with metal utensil until onions are burnt. Rinse with hot water, dry and lightly oil ready for use. An outdoor grill is best to get the pan hot enough...

Re: Show us your new knife!

Ok this is nothing fancy but I stepped up to a heavier knife after getting somewhat fascinated by using a cleaver for a bit ( this is your fault Lepus!!!) and grabbed a Toyama Noborikoi Kasumi Gyuto 210mm from the classifieds. And Im so proud this is my first real non stainless clad knife and first...
