A carbon steel pan is an excellent alternative to coated pans, but like cast-iron, they need some care. This pan will only get better with use. With good care, the surface of the pan will gain a natural non-stick surface, decreasing the need for care and improving the non-stick properties. For seasoning, we recommend that you buy Muurikka Silava Frying Fat with the frying pan. Metal utensils can be used with the pan, and it is suitable for all hob types, also for oven. Made for heavy use!
The pan material is black carbon steel. No coating has been used in the plan. The black surface of the pan is a property of the used raw material (black carbon steel), not a layer added separately to the pan surface. Because the pan is not stainless steel, it is important to carefully follow the instructions on taking it into use and maintenance. Proper treatment improves the frying properties and protects the pan from rust. The pan resists heat, but not shock-like heating, so you have to be moderate in heating. Metal utensils can be used with the pan. Used and maintained properly, the pan has a long life.
Wash the pan by hand using hot water and mild washing-up liquid, wipe dry immediately. A pre-seasoning has been applied to the pan surface, so it is not absolutely necessary to season it immediately when taking it into use.
Wash the pan by hand with hot water, preferably immediately after use; this way, stains come off the best. Do not use even mild washing-up liquids because they remove the fat surface formed on the pan. The easiest way to clean the pan is to boil water in it immediately after cooking; this way, any food stuck to the pan comes off effortlessly and the pan can be easily cleaned by wiping it with a paper towel, for example. Do not wash in a dishwasher. Do not leave the pan soaking in water; it is not made of stainless steel. Also, do not leave the pan to dry outdoors; dry it right away so that it will not rust. It is not dangerous if the black surface wears off over time and use; you can restore the black surface by seasoning the pan again. Season the pan using Muurikka Silava Frying Fat or canola oil, for example.
The product warranty covers defects in workmanship and materials. The warranty does not cover damage caused by the end user, rust or faults caused by neglecting care and maintenance.
Problem: The pan is rusty.
If the pan is rusty, scrub the rust off with soap steel wool, for example, and season it as described above immediately after rust removal.

If the bottom of the pan gets warped, you can try to straighten it as follows: Place the pan upside down on a durable base and knock the centre of the pan bottom with a rubber hammer, for example.

If food sticks to the pan, use more fat in cooking and see to proper care (no washing-up liquids, wash by hand, seasoning etc.) Avoid turning the food all the time while cooking and lower the cooking temperature, if necessary.
Problem: The black surface comes off
It is not dangerous if the black surface wears off over time and use. You can restore the black surface by seasoning the pan again.
