I just got De Buyer Carbone Plus pan. It looked nice and all shining.
I just thoroughly cleaned it under steaming hot water. Now from nowhere there is a ton of black spots everywhere.
Is this normal? Tried to clean it with a bit abrasive sponge but it is pretty much impossible to get it off.
This is my first time going with carbon steel. I looked at a couple articles on seasoning of carbon steel but there is no mentioning of the black spots.
