    New Toy: Matfer Bourgeat Carbon Steel Pan

    A Birthday Present (double nickels) from my wife. A Matfer Bourgeat 12" Carbon Steel Pan.

    Below is the evolution of the seasoning process. They recommend sautéing potato skins with salt and oil 2 times for 15 minutes each time. Then I heated a very thin coat of oil until there was no smoke.

    Im about fry an egg and see..

    Nice! I’m a big fan of carbon steel pans (have a De Buyer myself). Yours sure looks rock solid 👊
    what do you think so far? How did the egg turn out? Just keep seasoning it and cook with it, it really will be better with age.

        It didn't pass the egg test first seasoning. I have it in the oven with a very thin layer of canola oil at 425° for an hour. After it cools I will try again.

          You do still need to oil it for eggs. If do it bare, I doubt it will ever pass.

          Not quite there yet. Almost...A few sticky areas. I know with time it will get better.

          You and I are on the same path. My Matfer Bourgeat 8 5/8” has been a challenge. I’m finally getting it to the point my eggs don’t stick. Like Henrik said, we just gotta keep using them, they get better.

          What I learned is to get the pan just hot enough, use butter. When it bubbles a bit the pan is perfect. If it smokes, too hot, if it just melts, too cold. Also, don’t just dump the egg in the pan, you’ll break the surface tension of the butter and that raises the chances of the egg sticking.

            I like those CS pans! I’ve looked at them a number of times, just haven’t bought one since I have another style. But I do like them! Enjoy cooking with that!

                I did not use mine that often for some reason.

                    My wife got me one of those (the 10 inch version) a couple Christmases ago. Love using it but I don't use it anywhere near as much as I should.

                        troymeister btw,its not “double nickel”. We are the same age as the super bowl. 🤣🤣🤣

                        funny, one of the corporate restaurants I opened in SoCal was store number 55. We dubbed it the “double nickel”.

                          I use the term "Double Nickels" because when we were kids, we used to play various dice games, Yahtzee, Ship Captain Crew and some others. Different combinations of dice would have nicknames i.e...Box cars, Double Nickels, Snake Eyes...etc...Double Nickels always stuck with me...lol

                        I've never heard of that seasoning process. I have an inexpensive one. Was never able to season it properly. I'll have to try again

                        Our Favorite Backyard Smoker

                        The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                        The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

                        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


                        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.

                        This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
