Fix an "unseasoned" spot on my carbon steel wok?

jp96 | Mar 3, 2013 05:08 PM

I recently purchased the USA Made pow wok from Wokshop. I went to season it today according to the youtube instructions. I used grapeseed oil. Then I stirfried garlic, onions and chinese chives as instructed. When the veggies got charred, they left a spot that looked somewhat burned in the wok. This are began to rub off when I cooked with it later on and when cleaning. A bare silver spot began to show. I tried to reapply a layer of oil and put it back in the oven at 450 for 20 minutes. It helped slightly but then when cooking again the spot rubed off once again.

Should I rescrub this area and if so, with what type of material? How do I get the nonstick surface to stick to this area?

Thanks for advice! Also, are the deBuyer mineral pans made of the same material?
