My mother brought me a Chantal 8" Omelette pan this morning. It appears to be a purple/navy blue and the interior bottom has raised rings that show slight rust as though they are cast iron, but it also appears to have some kind of coating on it???
There is a half a tag on the outside of the pan, marked "Chantal # 63...Made in Germany".
I guess my question is, what the heck is this pan made of? The handle is a looped stainless steel looking handle, and the exterior is definitely enamel. There is definitely some iron in here somewhere.
But I am at a loss as to how to clean it, and what it is made out of so that I know its limits. Any help!
