Advice on using the fish pan
Before using the frying pan for the first time, we recommend that you give it a thorough cleaning. Pour oil into the bottom of the pan and brush with a paper towel. Gradually raise the heat to 150°C. Leave the pan to heat up for a few minutes, stopping the heat as soon as the first smoke appears. This creates a protective layer on the steel.
Iron frying pans will wear down over the years, thanks to the grease you put on the bottom each time you use them.
After several uses with fat, your frying pan will be well "culotte", i.e. covered with a natural non-stick coating. It will become coppery, even black, which is what we're looking for!
For maintenance, don't use detergents or washing-up liquid. Simply wash the pan in very hot water with a sponge (even an abrasive one, do yourself a favor!), then wipe dry with a cloth. You can also use coarse salt to rub inside the pan, which will wash it, remove food odors and tastes, and purify it.
Before storing it in a dry place, remember to lightly oil the inside of your iron frying pan with absorbent paper or a tea towel. This process naturally protects your cookware from oxidation and improves its non-stick properties.
