Re: Stainless steel cooking pot and pan set: advice needed please!

I just bought a deBuyer pan....I have to season it. We do a lot of sous-vide and the deBuyer looked like a good thing for finishing.

Yes they look amazing and I can't wait to cook omelettes and fry meat etc in them! I think a 22cm and a 30cm pan will give me a lot of versatility with the smaller making perfect French omelettes etc and the larger for steaks and searing or full meals for two etc. Exciting!

In the end my goal is to get rid of every piece of artificial non-stick piece of cookware in my kitchen so that all that is left are hand-picked and solid pieces that give great cooking results and will hopefully last many years.

My goal for the next couple of years is to really take my cooking skills to the next level as I really do enjoy it so much.

Re: Stainless steel cooking pot and pan set: advice needed please!

I also just ordered this set of 3x stainless steel mixing bowls with the matching glass lids:

RÖSLE Bowl set: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B00...KR8XB7XF&psc=1

RÖSLE Lids: https://www.amazon.de/dp/B007NMLCGE/...67&sr=8-5&th=1

Originally I had ordered this WMF bowl set but when I got them I found that they are really not deep enough to avoid any splatter and are thus not very practical or suitable for mixing in so I will be returning them https://www.amazon.co.uk/WMF-Gourmet.../dp/B00ZVUZVFI

Yes the RÖSLE are overall 2x the price but better to have 3x practical bowls with sealing lids for 100chf than 4x small impractical bowls for 50chf. Plus they will last years so I consider them an investment in my forthcoming 'plastic-free' (so far as possible) kitchen.

I do like the look of those. Had similar myself from Cheshire Oakes in the UK which had great heat distribution and washed like a dream for years, then I met my OH and he can kill pretty much any kitchen utensil.

How on earth can he kill cast iron or carbon steel?

He wouldn't get away with that and he's a big softie who adores me anyway (someone has to)

Try putting washing up liquid in one of those pans, bringing it to the boil and allowing it to boil dry, then repeatedly going over it with a brillo pad and leaving it to soak in the sink overnight. Thankfully, I was out of the country at the time. I won't have cast iron either since my mate's OH dropped her casserole dish and didn't tell her. She only found out when she put a casserole in the oven and nipped out, then got home to find the house full of smoke because the dish had cracked and split in the oven.

Cast iron cracked? I've had a cast iron skillet for over 20 years. Been moved about 8 times and dropped several. All it's ever cracked is the stone flagging in my last kitchen.

Chuff, I think you're not wanting non stick but the Le Cruset nonstick wok and frying pan we have are brilliant. Great for omelettes. Omelette is a PITA to scrape off a cast iron base IMO.

Rösele are excellent. I have a couple pieces that seem to be lasting for ever.

I did buy a very inexpensive Kuhn Rikon granite surface nonstick pan - it‘s great for eggs.

I have bought carbon steel frying pans and once seasoned they are non stick and eggs should slide around on the. I'll never use teflon again if I can help it.

Not sure they are teflon. Eggs definitely slide! I'm now in love with the look of the Rosle ones.

The copper ones... I have pan envy!

Well if youre aren't Teflon then they will be ceramic and either of those are subject to wear and deterioration.

I am now conducting the seasoning ritual of my carbon steel pans... a thin layer of sesam oil then into the oven at 250c for 1.5 hours and then turning the oven off and letting everything cool more or less naturally. It's a long process but even after the first go I could see the darkening and non-stick patina that is being built up.

Re: Stainless steel cooking pot and pan set: advice needed please!

Just tried my first omelette in the 22cm carbon steel pan... after seasoning a few times it seems to be 95% non-stick now (couple of parts on the upper edges stuck so im giving it another season now). I don't think I had the pan hot enough as it was slow to cook the top part of the mixture and in the end it kind of flopped into a very unprofessional shape, hah. Still... for a first attempt the omelette tasted delicious and I also added freshly grated Gruyere and dried Schnittlauch inside for the filling.

I used this video of a lady called Christine Cushing who I randomly discovered last week while researching (and who I now appear to have a slight milf-crush on). Her videos are excellent and she seems to really know her stuff.

It's used on door hinges of hidden caves as it has a good resistance to sand penetration.

It's sesame oil, with a mis-spelling. What did you think it was... a new and undiscovered type of oil that I had happened to discover in Switzerland? Google search even corrects it to Sesame oil.

I did google it, but I wanted make sure it wasn‘t a particular brand or something I‘d missed. One never knows around here.

Re: Stainless steel cooking pot and pan set: advice needed please!

High quality polished stainless is also non-stick, albeit with no treatment.

A stainless steel pan isn't fully non-stick in the way a properly seasoned Carbon steel or cast iron pan is, you still need to use oil/butter for things like eggs. A lot of cooks/chefs also season stainless steel pans for that reason.

That omelette has a hideous pale, unappetising colour.

If someone goes to all the trouble of making a Youtube video about cooking omelettes, they really ought to get down the the farmers market first rather than the supermarket.
