Carbon Steel Iron's benefits
One of the main drawbacks of cast iron is its weight. The carbon steel pan has many of the same benefits of cast iron but is much lighter making it easier to maneuver while cooking. Summit has found the best thickness of iron for the perfect balance between lightweight and heat conductivity to retain the best attributes of cast iron without the weight.
Carbon steel pots and pans are nonstick without the use of synthetic chemical treated surface. Create a natural nonstick barrier by seasoning the pan with oil.
Once a carbon steel pan is properly seasoned, it is easy to maintain the naturally nonstick surface. After each use, simply wipe the surface clean and reapply a thin layer of oil before storage. For tough jobs, use a tawashi scrubber to get remove any remaining food particles.
Like cast iron cookware, carbon steel is meant to last. Carbon steel cookware gets better with age and use. Regular usage of the carbon steel ensures the building up of the non stick surface.
A melamine coating is applied on Beijing Wok pans in order to prevent pans from rusting before purchase. It has to be burnt off the coating before using. The coating is not harmful even though it remained on the pan while cooking. While burning off the coating, smoke will incur, so please turn the ventilation on.
