    High-End Carbon Steel Pan Recommendations?

    My 35cm Darto Paella lives on my stove top and gets used for basically 80% of my stove top cooking. My (also very nice) Smithey cast iron and Mauviel carbon steel pans go unused. It is still very flat. You could also try their new 30cm 4mm thick saute pan. Only other 4mm pan they make currently...

    I used some EasyOff. Still required multiple applications and scrubbing.

    When your wife gets ahold of your cast iron skillet...

    I use hot hot water and dish soap with either a scrubby sponge, stainless steel scrubby or piece of chainmail to clean my carbon steel pans (and cast irons but hardly use them anymore). Any coating that comes off is generally just a superficial layer of burnt oil and not actually properly...

    True, but they specifically mention how these carbon knives vary from stainless and how to care for them.
  7. JohnnyChance


    Yeah, that is very likely. I'm not sure why they went through the effort of explaining was carbon steel knives are and then list only stainless steel knives though. "If you’ve heard of carbon steel knives, chances are you know that they require more upkeep than their stainless-steel...

    Grind preference

    Does anyone like flat ground knives? I like all types of grinds, great for variety and different applications. Regardless of grind or thickness at the spine, the main thing I look for is thinness behind the edge. Universally, if you get it thin enough just behind the edge, the knife will...

    Inch to cm measurement inconsistencies

    Can't remember the last time I bought a knife that was listed in inches. Honestly would be a red flag if it were. Also, sometimes the titled length description is bolster to tip instead of actual edge length. Basically any measurement used in the title or overview, be it 10" or 240mm or...
