Issues seasoning De Buyer Mineral B

b.mac | Nov 19, 201302:50 PM     31

I'm having issues getting a good seasoning to coat to my DB Mineral B. I've have so far attempted twice to season the pan with food grade flax seed oil in the oven with multiple sessions at 500F. Doing so on the first round (of maybe 8 sessions) caused my 10 year old Kitchenaid Superba gas range to finally toast parts of the circuit board or connectors, forcing me to get a new GE Monogram all gas range. That round of season just didn't work out. I might have put the first couple of coats on a micro meter too thick. So I removed the seasoning with oven cleaner and stainless steel wool. And popped it back in the new Monogram with attention to detail on the flax seed oil coating for 6 sessions. And then I did a couple of extra on the burner top.

The issue is this. I'll heat the pan up nice and hot and then add some olive oil and cook up something like eggs. And it sticks. Moderately. Then I'll clean it up using a sponge or even coarse salt, and the seasoning layer starts to erode off pretty much right away. After all the effort and attention I've put in to this, I'm about ready to bail on the DB pans and try something else.
