Chef Mate Carbon Steel Wok

Michele4466 | Aug 22, 200603:26 PM     3

Based on a recent thread, my hubby and I decided to buy the chef mate wok. I started to season it, did the boiling water thing and then the first cooking oil step... During the heating process, the bottom burned a bit with a non burnt strip right in the middle. Very weird configuration. We watched the time and heat carefully. I want to continue with the oiling process, did we ruin the wok or is this just what happens and I should continue with the next oilings and not worry about it?
FYI: I did try to clean the burn but it did not come off, just a darkening of sorts but I thought that happens with time and use...

Any advice would be very welcome!
