Hi all,

Thank you for the words of encouragement, and absolutely one of the tasks to do is cook in the oven; and yep, need a metal ring to roast.

So the fry pans are out and finished, came our pretty good too all things considered.

The molasses mix is starting to look a bit knarly…
...

Out of the bath, cleaned and dried.

And two seasonings later…

...

Ready to do some cooking this coming weekend in the fire pit probably when I’m back home.  I’ll post some photos somewhere…. Hopefully choose the correct folder/thread.

Phil.

Hi all,

Been a while since I posted, but I’ve been busy cooking over the last few months with the camp (Dutch) oven and pans… many times actually.  Just did a great slow cooked pork shoulder in the oven which I was real happy with.

I decided to refurbish the pans as I originally seasoned them with virgin olive oil and wasn’t too happy that there weren’t as non-stick as I would like; so the pans got another 4 days in a molasses tub, scrubbed with coarse steel wool when they came out and seasoned 3 times with avocado oil as it has the highest smoke point. Season temp was 250C.

Tried one of the pans today and it’s still sticks with a basic omelette.  Not sure if there’s something I’m doing wrong, or it’s just the way it is or there just crap pans….  Comments encouraged.  Smiley (You can click on the photos to enlarge)

They look good.  The more you use them the better they get.

Try multiple seasonings.
Allow cooling off between each seasoning.
4 or 5 times.
Good luck.

Thanks Aart.  I did warm them a little prior to putting the oil on, and they went into the oven when it was at 250C and I turned it off after one hour and just let them cool in the oven, which took about 3+ hours...  I did this 3 times over 3 days.

I'll keep going with them and add an extra seasoning or two as we move along. I thought I may have been using too much oil, but I don't think I did as I believe they can get "sticky" if too much oil is used which they certainly are not.

Correct Phil
Must be a thin film of oil.
