Problems with a wok-style pan...

RWCFoodie | Nov 7, 2010 12:02 PM

I'm having problems with this wok-style pan I bought in an Asian market. It was not expensive and seemed like a good deal.

The problem is there always seems to be a metallic taste to anything I cook in this pan. I have cleaned it several different ways after use including scrubbing with salt and a sponge.

After cleaning, I have tried wiping it with a drop of veg oil on a paper towel or spraying it with PAM and wiping. There is always a black residue on the cloth/paper towel as shown in the photos.

Anyone have an idea of what's going on here? There was no label to indicate what kind of metal it is.

Should I just junk it?

Thanks...
