West Japan Tools 12” Carbon Steel Saute Pan
Master sharpener and knifemaker Takayuki Shibata has begun producing top quality carbon steel pans with oven proof handles designed for the serious cook. This robust pan is molded from a single piece of steel making it extra durable, the smooth cooking surface helps to give this pan a non-stick quality once properly seasoned. We recommended seasoning this pan 3-5 times with flaxseed oil before using, the pan should be wiped with the oil all over then the excess removed and placed in an oven upside down at 250°c for 3 hours and allowed to cool in the oven to allow the oil to polymerize; repeating this several times before using will help build a strong seasoning closer to non-stick and more resistant to rusting. The pan should be cleaned with a stiff brush such as a tawashi, scrubbing the pan with salt will help to lift stubborn scorched food. Regularly re-seasoning with cooking oil, flaxseed oil, or rendered fat will maintain the pans cooking surface; lightly wipe the pan with the oil or fat then wipe out all the excess and heat up the pan until it is smoking hot and leave to cool.
