Today I want to tell you how to prepare an iron pan to use it for the first time, to keep it perfect and create a non-stick surface in a material that does not have a layer of Teflon or other similar non-stick products so that these useful Cooking tools work well and last us a lifetime. Following the publication of the entry on which are the best professional kitchen pans, how to prepare a pan of this material before starting to use it. For that reason, here is a small tutorial so you can see how you can do this task in a simple way. Anyway, in the pans, you will find the explanations of the manufacturer to know how you have to do it. In general, iron pans are heavy pans that can reach very high temperatures, which will facilitate the cook at the time the tasks of browning meat and fish using them as an iron, but they are also great for frying potatoes or make any kind of fried at high temperature. Before doing these tasks, you have to think about how the pan comes when we buy it and how to prepare it for future uses. In the market, there are several types of certain of this material, which is not stainless steel or aluminum, but iron ore. This means that when you finish using them you also have to clean them and store them in a special way because if you just scrub them like any other pot, they can rust and lose the non-stick " treatment " that we will create with their use. The first tasks when acquiring one of these iron pans Once we unwrap our frying pan and remove the protective cartons, the first thing we must do is thoroughly scrub the pan to remove some substances or protective materials for transport that prevent scratching or scratching. Specifically, the ones I have are from the De Buyer brand and are protected with a layer of beeswax. You can see the marks I had of that wax in the photo on these lines. With a common scrubber, water and a drop of dish soap, we go over the pan until it is perfect and remove the wax layer. When you do this first task, you will notice how the color of the pan changes, especially on its back, which is a more uniform color and takes some shine. The curing or creation of the protective or non-stick coating This task depends on the type of iron pan you use. If the pan does not have that layer of wax, it will be enough to scrub it and start preparing its curing or cottage. If you bring that layer, after removing it as we have indicated we can skip what the next paragraph indicates and move on to the next point. In those that do not bring wax, the recommendation of the manufacturers is to cook a little water in the mineral iron pans and add some potatoes. When doing this process, let the coals cook for about 15 minutes until the pans take a darker color. Then we throw the peels in the trash and we again wash the pan with hot soapy water. If the pan is protected with beeswax like the one I use, it is not necessary to do the step of cooking the potato peels and we can continue from the previous point when we have the pan scoured and ready to use. The next step is to put a glass of oil in the pan and heat it. In that process, you can move the pan or tilt it so that the oil treatment affects its entire surface, or put more oil. After that heating, we recover the oil and remove the one on its surface with an absorbent kitchen paper, so that while we remove it we leave a thin film of grease on the inside surface of the pan.
