Let's get your Nomad seasoning going
Follow these simple steps to prepare your Nomad frying and wok pans for use, and create your own healthy non-stick layer with natural oil.
Nomad pans are made from carbon steel, which is the perfect choice for those wishing to cook and fry with cookware that is not only high-quality but also healthy. By seasoning your pan you create a healthy and natural non-stick layer, allowing your food to slide off easily. This natural patina layer just gets better and better, the more you use it. The blacker the pan, the better the non-stick properties!
Seasoning is necessary before first use
Seasoning your pan is so easy! Follow these steps to create your own healthy non-stick coating:
Step 1: Clean the pan
Clean the pan in warm water with a small amount of detergent.
Rinse and dry completely to prevent rusting.
Step 2 : Add a drop of oil
Pour a thin layer (approx. 1 mm) of oil into the pan and heat at a medium temperature.
Gently rotate the pan allowing the oil to spread evenly.
Step 3: Rub it in
Once the oil starts to smoke, use a cloth or paper towel to rub the oil all the way up to the rim of the pan until all remaining is gone. The pan will gradually discolour.
The darker the colour, the better the non-stick layer.
Step 4 : Cool down
Remove the pan from the heat and allow to cool down completely.
Clean the cold pan with warm water and dry thoroughly.
