Yahoo ! seamunky, it worked. Got the pan flaming hot, added oil & let it get nice & hot threw the burger in got some splatters (wee bit to much oil) got a nice crust . I was crossing my fingers but it released perfectly. Did the other side with the same result. I was surprised the center was nice & rare. Perfect ! Thanks again,

seamunky, thanks for the input, think I agree. I had seen that video & that's why along with impatience I started cooking right away. Every ones input is greatly appreciated & will keep you posted. I have a feeling with all the threads/opinions on seasoning there are many paths to the same finish. I sure hope this works. Have a good feeling it will & if not I can start over.

Sorry for not giving more info. it was late. De Buyer mineral b.Did one round of seasoning w/peanut oil, looked pretty good. I cooked a Buffalo burger two nights in a row & am afraid I didn't have it hot enough as it didn't release. Had a bunch of stuff on the bottom of pan, boiled some water & cleaned with a Dobie pad. The center "clean" part is getting smaller not bigger. I think not cooking hot enough & not using enough oil is causing the problem. I'm going to try again tonight with more oil & hotter pan.Will report back. In the mean time if you folks have input please give it I'm wide open.

I tried to season my 10" pan & after doing it decided what to heck, I'm going to cook. This is after one round of seasoning & cooking two nights in a row. I don't think I'm cooking hot enough/ Have a gas range. I really need input.

Stove top seasoning of DeBuyer Mineral B Iron pan?

I have to just take a moment to thank you all for the replies. Just got back in town tonight. Late as it is here on the west coast I decided to take the plunge on the 10" pan tonight, Hardest time I had was getting the dam* wax off. ended using detergent & Comet. Dried the pan on the burner & put some peanut oil in used tongs & paper towels to get the sides. Quite a production. LOTS of smoke ! Got it a bit brown on the bottom, poured the oil out & am letting it cool down as I write. Will tackle the other tomorrow. See what kind of a mess I created in the morning :] I did take pictures & will try & get them up in the next couple of days. Have to get the smell out of here & going to bed.

Stove top seasoning of DeBuyer Mineral B Iron pan?

Hello Chem ! this is my first post. Last week I just got a 10" & 12" Mineral B. It's been too darn hot around here to even think about firing up the stove for a long period of time to season my pans, thankfully it;s starting to cool down so time to get serious. I've been reading every thing I can find about seasoning & have some thoughts & would appreciate your input. I'm thinking Peanut oil, reason high flash/smoke point. Seems to me it will stand up in the long run better than the flax oil method. I doubt I'll ever be cooking at higher temps than it will tale to season. If you have the time & inclination would be nice to hear your detailed method. Thanks !
