Just got carbon steel pan, didn't expect black spots

avrecko | Jan 25, 2013 01:05 PM

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.
