Hand Forged Carbon Steel Hammered Frying Pan 20cm
Experience the fusion of traditional craftsmanship and modern utility with our Hand Forged Carbon Steel Hammered Frying Pan. Crafted with care in Japan, this pan is built to withstand time and use, promising a non-stick surface that only improves with use.
Constructed from high-quality carbon steel, this frying pan offers an excellent balance of heat conduction and retention, making it perfect for a variety of cooking techniques from pan-roasting meats to sautéing vegetables. Its lightweight design and sloped sides provide better control for flipping and tossing food. Much like its cast iron counterpart, this pan will develop a seasoning over time, creating a naturally nonstick surface superior to most modern coatings.
But what makes this frying pan truly unique is its hand-forged, hammered finish. The careful attention to detail is evident in every groove and dimple, making this more than just a cooking utensil - it's a work of art.
Seasoning Your Carbon Steel Frying Pan
Before first use, wash your pan with hot soapy water and a soft cloth. Then, gradually heat the pan over medium heat until it starts to lightly smoke. Add 2-3 tablespoons of high heat oil, such as grape seed or canola oil, and swirl it around for a minute. Let the pan cool, drain the oil, and wipe the entire pan, inside and out, with a paper towel. Place the pan in a cold oven, then set the oven to 450 degrees and leave it for 2 hours. Turn off the oven and let the pan cool inside. Repeat this process two more times to establish a solid initial seasoning.
Never expose this pan to high heat, and always allow it to cool before cleaning. Avoid immersing a hot pan in water as it could warp and damage the pan. After each use, wash the pan by hand in hot soapy water, using a soft cloth to avoid damaging the pan's seasoning. Once clean, thoroughly dry the pan and apply a thin layer of oil for protection against oxidation.
With regular use and care, your carbon steel frying pan will develop a rich, nonstick surface that rivals the most advanced modern cookware. Enjoy the quality and timeless beauty of hand-forged carbon steel with this exceptional frying pan.Product Specifications:
