Just like cast iron, a carbon steel pan needs to be seasoned before its first use. Oil is a must-have for the process, but Cook’s Illustrated recommends an additional surprising ingredient for prepping your skillet: potato peels.
Bought a carbon steel wok, before using it, it has to be seasoned. But how ? No worries, I brought it to my friend restaurant, the professional chef season the wok for me. The final product is a carbon steel wok that will not stick. Way better than the poisonous non-stick pan people buy in the store
